I am a self-confessed chocoholic. Nothing seems to beat the pleasure of soft, gooey dark chocolate after a long day at school. As a tradition, I treat myself to a chunk of fine dark chocolate at midnight on my birthday, before cake or wine. This year, I chose Cadbury Bournville, a new entrant to the market.
Prior to Cadbury launching Bournville, Indian consumers had access to hardly two or three brands of dark chocolate. Therefore, whenever I was consumed by craving for chocolate, I had to pick up Lindt or Vochelle, both great brands but the novelty wore off quite quickly. A couple of months ago, Bournville came out in four new flavours of dark chocolate : uber-sinful Rich Cocoa, Hazelnut, Raisin and Nut and Almond. By far, Rich Cocoa and Almond have been my favourite, considering they've made me place aside a weight-loss regime for the time being. Bournville contains 44% cocoa, hardly any sugar and hence not as many calories as regular milk chocolate contains. It is also rich in anti-oxidants and has reduced my craving for coffee significantly. Each bar weighs 90 gm and I currently go through a bar every 4-5 days.
Nothing like Bournville to swat Monday morning blues!
