The votes are finally in!

And now Cadbury can announce the nation's favourite Dairy Milk Inventor bar.

Formally known as Crunchy Honeycomb, this year's winner is the Cadbury Dairy Milk Honeycomb & Nuts.

It was invented by a 19-year-old student from Nottingham called Shannon.

The chocolate bar hasn't just won the taste buds of the nation, but it has also been backed by Love Island presenter Laura Whitmore.

Shannon's winning bar combines milk chocolate with golden crunchy honeycomb pieces and sweet, tasty caramel-flavoured fudge.

The bar is then finished with chopped hazelnuts to add a nutty crunch to every mouth-watering bite.

This winning treat has received an official rebrand, including an all new design and name, in preparation for its debut.

It will return to supermarkets across the UK and Ireland, sitting alongside Cadbury-fan firm favourites such as Fruit & Nut and Caramel.

Make sure you keep your eyes peeled as it'll hit shelves from January next year.

Speaking about the chocolate, Laura said: "I had no doubts that the Cadbury Dairy Milk Crunchy Honeycomb bar was going to win.

"There's nothing like this in the UK and I'm going to be first in line to get my hands on it when it makes its official debut next year."

Beatrice Berutti, Tablets Brand Manager at Cadbury, added: "We're thrilled to reveal Shannon as the winner of the competition.

"We love experimenting with different flavours, especially when we can bring our fans into the process of inventing new creations."

She continued: "Cadbury Dairy Milk Honeycomb & Nuts mixes classic ingredients in a unique and mouth-watering way.

"It is just one of the reasons why it has captivated the nation – including presenter Laura Whitmore."

Winner Shannon has been on an epic journey to create her formula, including a trip to the Cadbury Kitchen in Bournville.

She worked with experts to try over 90,000 possible combinations to create the bar which will be stocked from January next year.
