A NEAR-100-year-old Dairy Milk box was discovered under a bathroom floor.
Emma Young, 51, found the pristine packaging — empty of chocolate — while doing up her home.
The mother of two contacted Cadbury who confirmed it was made around 1930.
Emma said: “I thought ‘Gosh, that looks pretty old’ as it had ‘six pence’ on it. It’s in such good nick.”
Emma reckons a builder scoffed it then discarded the cardboard box at the house in Plymouth.
The choccy fan will now frame it, saying: “It’s a bit of history.”
