Just a wee post to cheer you up if you feel like a smoke!! Have a chocolate.
Now i am not trying to make you into a porker or increase your dental bills but you need to be very GOOD and KIND to yourself when you stop smoking.
Think about what you are doing!! Not everyone is doing it or can, you are a HERO!!
So some chocolate is well deserved and I need to have a wee bleat about Whittakers choc as it is so good and NZ made!!
Ahhhhh, Whittakers chocolate. For those who have not had the pleasure, I have to say, you need to eat this !! Whittakers is dear to my heart as it is NZ made and its like a triumph over Cadbury. I don’t eat and have not touched Cadbury chocolates for 3-4 years.It is a shame as I like creme eggs but nope, I feel VERY strongly about this. Cadbury, if some will recall, put PALM OIL in their chocolate for a while. You could taste it, and it tasted like cheapo chocolate and we all know how bad Palm oil is for health and the environment. People kicked up a real stink and they stopped using Palm oil but you know after that, I didn’t trust them and if that was not enough, they then reduced the sizes of the chocs here and MOVED most production of NZ Cadbury chocolate to Australia. Now the only thing made in NZ, is the Roses chocolates, Jaffas and pineapple lumps. Moro (a NZ classic)is made in Aussie.
“The following products have moved to Pascall’s Scoresby factory in Australia: Wine Gums, Milk Bottles, Jet Planes, Party Treats, Party Packs, Blackberries, Fruity Jellies, Sour Spiders, Jelly Babies, Spearmint Leaves, Fruit Jubes, Rainbow Fish and Eskimos.
Minties, Milk Shakes, Lolly Scramble, Fruit Burst and Fruit Chews have been made in Thailand since last year, and Chocolate Eclairs have been made in Malaysia since late last year” Kindly supplied by :http://choclovers.co.nz/faq/
Very disappointing, so no Cadbury’s or Pascall or Cadbury owned products. Very sad in some cases, as I said I love Creme eggs and Turkish delight, but that is life.
My 2nd favourite chocolate has to be “BACI”.Made in Perugia and they are heavenly….Scrummy, scrummy, scrummy….Stop smokers definitely deserve these beauties!! When I am in Italy (even though we get them here) , I eat them every day, just 1-2………..
Check out their site and they have tours ( i tried to do it last time but not enough time) and are part of the HUGE Eurochoc festival in Perugia every year.
Now see, save that smoke money and in a year you could be at the Perugia Chocolate Festival!!
