Sweet tooth anyone? FitandFunNow.com is about fitness and fun. A bit of chocolate indulgence now and then can be fun😋. Nothing wrong with being a chocoholic?! South Africa has always been chocolate country. Well known brands include Cadbury, Nestlé and Beacon.
In South Africa you will find chocolate in all shapes and sizes on sale everywhere: candy stores and sweet shops, supermarkets (grocery stores), pharmacies and at petrol stations (gas stations).
Lindt entered the SA market a few years ago and opened up boutique stores at Eastgate and other upmarket shopping malls. I paid a visit to their Eastgate store yesterday. With so much eye candy, it is difficult to decide what to buy.

The World’s Biggest Chocolate Consumers
Switzerland is renowned for its exceptional chocolate. From all of those prism-shaped Toblerone bars in airport duty free shops across the world to the more local Cailler and Frey varieties, it comes as little surprise that Swiss people consume the most chocolate per capita of any country worldwide. Every year, the average Swiss person eats just under 20 lbs of chocolate. Neighboring Germany is also a nation of chocoholics with annual consumption per capita amounting to 17.4 lbs.
The Irish also have a sweet tooth and they come joint third with the United Kingdom with 16.3 lbs per year. The United States comes in ninth overall – the average American eats about 9.5 lbs of chocolate each year.
