Chocolate is a substance that is craved, devoured, drunk , dreamed of and consumed in enormous quantities by people in every country in the world, and has been for centuries. The Aztecs even prized it above gold and silver.
The UK population consumes over 500,000 tonnes of chocolate every year – that’s 8.4kg (18.6lb) of chocolate for every man, woman and child. This is considerably more than the quantity the average American eats – only 5.2kg (11.6lb) per person – but nothing compared with the amount the Swiss get through. As the world’s greatest chocolate consumers, the residents of Switzerland munch their way through 10.1kg (22.3lb) of chocolate per person each year. That’s equivalent to 162 Mars Bars or 420 bags of Cadbury’s Buttons.
