The Swiss are eating even more chocolate!

Before we arrived in Switzerland we read the statistics for chocolate consumption and found that the Swiss topped the world with and average of 12 kilos per person per year!  Well, the latest surveys say that the consumption has increased to 12.4 kilos.  According to this article, in this time of economic crisis, the Swiss aren’t cutting down on chocolate!  Well, it is supposed to be a stress relief, right?!

I really don’t know where the Swiss put the all the chocolate they eat.  They all seem so slim and I am always that only one in the chocolate eisle at the supermarket filling up my trolley.  Actually, when I speak to the Swiss they can’t imagine that they eat over 12 kilos a year.  Where does it go?  Someone must be eating it?

Perhaps the Swiss chocolate companies just make up these figures to make you feel like you have to keep up with the rest of the Swiss.  You know, peer pressure! Haha!

    Hee hee! I see you two still have a way to go if you are to equal the 12 kilos a year! You aren’t even half way cause you need to eat 24kg before you come home!!! Send some this way and I’m sure you’ll find lots of helpers xxx

    Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.

    or vice-versa? My blog discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly
