Chocolate bars bought in England are to carry a government health warning as part of a new “healthy eating” initiative. I’m not sure how well this will work but there we go. Cigarettes carry a government health warning, “smoking kills”, but people still buy them and some still smoke like chimneys! As a chocolate lover myself, I suspect the same thing will be true of chocolate bars!

The wrappers will carry a message urging people to be “treatwise” and encouraging them to enjoy chocolate bars as part of a balanced diet. They will also carry a link to a website which stresses the importance of people eating chocolate bars in moderation. The old saying, “a bit of what you fancy does you good”, comes to mind! Cadbury’s chocolate is certainly very good, the best in the world – not sure about eating it in moderation though!
