    Well there you go – me resisting the 1kg Dairy Milk bar and only buying the 400g showed a considerable amount of foresight, don’t you think?

  2. Did you know….

    Cadbury, along with many other chocolate producers, do not make sure that all the workers involved in making the chocolate are treated properly. Often, in the cocoabean production slaves are used, from a very young age.

    Almost half the world’s chocolate is made from cocoa from the Cote d’ivoire (Ivory Coast) in Africa. 12,000 children have been trafficked into cocoa farms in Cote D’Ivoire.

    Stop the Traffik is campaigning against slavery, and the current campaign is about chocolate. You can help make a difference by signing up and refusing to buy chocolate that is not certified “slave-free”. ( http://www.stopthetraffik.org/chocolatecampaign/ )

    Or don’t you care?

  3. Salmonella scare – that sure will put a damper on the chocaholics’ passion.
