Yes, it’s true, we do in fact eat our way through ‘tonnes’ of Christmas Chocolates. According to a recent study conducted by, the average Brit munches their way through 1.5 tonnes of chocolate in their lifetimes, amounting to £12,000! We might even eat more than the average… #NoShame


Ah, Christmas! a time when over indulging on chocolates and sweet treats is practically unavoidable.  You’ve probably received a box of chocolates as a gift, helped yourself to that dedicant slice of cake and scoffed the selection boxes whilst wrapping presents but according to new research we’re eating even more than probably first expected… According to a poll conducted by, we spend an average of £12k on Chocolate in our lifetimes, consuming more than 1.5 tonnes of the cocoa delight. Obviously, our favourite chocolates to eat are from Christmas tins (The Quality Street Pink Fudge is always amongst the first to go!), but according to the survey, there are some surprising front runners in the chocolate favourites.
