It has emerged that Britons splash out the maximum on chocolate when compared to their other European counterparts.
A Mintel survey revealed that Britons each spent an average 57 pounds on chocolate treats in 2008 - a huge total of 3.5billion pounds.
Belgians spent around 48 pounds per head on chocolate treats and the Germans only 41 pounds.
Even global recession has not put a dampener on Britain's chocoholics, reports The Daily Express.
Mintel experts have predicted a continued expansion in chocolate sales this year.
