Don’t be caught by this Easter Bunny

Hubby and I have found the perfect ‘diet’ chocolate.
We were in a shop yesterday looking for dog food amongst other things, and came out with some seedling trays for our beans and tomatoes, said dog food, some bin liners, and at £1, a hollow chocolate Easter Bunny and three eggs.

There are times when Hubby, or I, need a sugar fix to fend off a headache or just boost our energy a little, so a small choccy bar usually fits the bill.
The idea was that we would have one of the small eggs immediately, then he would have the Bunny and final egg at a later date.

If there was any chocolate in that egg, I’m a chinaman.
The colour was a dingy grey rather than chocolate or any other shade of brown, the texture waxy and the taste? Well, there wasn’t any. AT ALL.
These days we are more aware of what goes into chocolate products, as in order to save money, less chocolate is being used, and manufacturers are relying on ‘chocolate flavourings’ instead. It’s nowhere near the same as the real thing, but most are passable.
This wasn’t even that, and I wouldn’t describe it as chocolate flavoured colouring either.
I have never tasted anything so vile, and for either of us to spit out (discreetly into a tissue) chocolate of any description and throw it in the bin followed in quick succession by the untouched bunny and remaining egg, is a first.

So, if you want to look at ‘chocolate’, not eat, smell or touch it and just throw it away, this is for you as it will be totally calorie free on your diet.
If not, give it a wide berth, and either save your money or spend a pound on four mini snack bars instead or a bar on special offer.

    Ha, what a disappointment that must have been, though a gram or two less must be a reward??

    I thought you were going to discover it was dog treat chocolate! Someone brought some lovely bars to writers’ group the other week to celebrate Fairtrade Week I haven’t hunted them down yet, but they were divine.
