ive given it up for lent before....it wasnt actually as hard as i thought it would be..and i also go through periods of eating LOTS of chocolate.
Thing is, i totally dont eat sweets as such (as in boiled, gummy things or things like that) so i always go to chocolate instead....

I don't really like chocolate that much...I mean, it's alright, but I can't see what all the fuss is about!
I seem to remember hearing something about it a few months ago. I can't remember it exactly, but there's something in the chocolate that acts as a stimulant - it makes us feel happy, so we enjoy it and consequently want more of it. It's like a drug, and LOADS of people are addicted to it.
Looking at the ingredients, I wouldn't say so - there's less cocoa powder in it than hazelnuts (which is 13%). Milk chocolate generally has 43%+ cocoa solids, and proper chocolate contains 70%+. That's why I love Lindt so much - the 70% and 85% bars are GORGEOUS. I'll still have Cadbury chocolate if I have it, but it's not as nice as Lindt.
