SYDNEY, Australia -- Chocoholics rejoiced in Sydney where Cadbury's latest publicity stunt was a vending machine that vended a free chocolate bar based on the user's Facebook likes and dislikes.

Users of the machine, dubbed the Joy Generator, simply logged into their Facebook accounts using the touchscreen interface and received a free chocolate bar best suited to their lifestyles and personalities based on their profiles. Choices included hazelnut, peppermint, Rocky Road, Crunchie, Turkish Delight and milk chocolate.

Patrons then took a picture with their flavor in the brand's social media enabled picture booth.
