I am a real chocaholic and to lose weight I gave up chocolate biscuits and restricted myself to 4 squares a day (and lost 7k in 18 months - there is so much fat in biscuits).
Val buys me 70% dark chocolate in the UK and it costs over 1 a bar.
We discovered that one of the supermarkets sells it's own brand of 74% for 0.53 (less 10% if you buy 2 = 33p a bar!!!!)
We stripped the shelves of 38 bars on day one , forty bars on day three and by day five the 10% discount had come off, but we still bought another 38 bars.
Val checked the contents which are perfect, as is the taste.
Luckily we were not stopped at the channel tunnel as we would have had difficulty explaining 116 slabs of choc as well as 212 bottles of wine, which we bought in Tossa and France.
