A whole box of Cadbury's chocolate. 24 bars of pure deliciousness.
This isn't from my go-to mate for chocolates, Sheridan, either. No. This is from Cadbury's themselves. So what's it all about?
Well, I had heard things about "the chocolate drive" but didn't know what it was all about. I got a letter from Miss M's school's music department some weeks ago asking how many boxes I wanted. Huh? Miss M isn't in the music programme this year.
So here's what it's all about. Schools, kinders and the like use this chocolate drive to raise funds. This is the box we got through kinder. It contains 24 x 250g bras of chocs.
The idea - to sell each bar for $2.50
Since I don't buy much chocolate, I wouldn't even be able to tell you how much these normally sell for but certainly not for this price, as a normal chocolate bar is usually around the $2 mark.
So what do I do with $60 worth of chocolate? Since we haven't been here very long and don't know a whole load of people - and the people we do know are also somehow involved in this in their own way - I could purchase it all myself and slowly make my way through them.
I could send them with Mr C to work, but I know it's been around there already.
Anyone out there want to buy some of these bars? I have 6 each of the following; Top Deck, Caramello, Dairy Milk and Crunchie.
Which is your favourite?
On the flip side of the coin, I have also read recently that this popular chocolate drive has been receiving some negative publicity. With the attention on the increase of obesity and trying to teach children healthy eating habits.
I believe this is also the first time Cadbury aren't taking back any that aren't sold. That leaves me buying the lot for future consumption or trying to sell them all to people who have their own boxes to sell.
There goes the diet ;-)
