Re: Death by chocolate

I think this one tops all:

"Children can't differentiate between toys and nutritional items," said Miriam Gruss, a member of the committee."

No comment.

Re: Re: Death by chocolate

Well that seems to be the way these health and safety 'dictats' seem to be generated. A committee is appointed and personal views are turned into EC law.
Are there any statistics or learned studies to back up their arguments?

Re: Death by chocolate

Ah! an easy one to solve, just ban Kinder Surprise from the UK shops.

Re: Death by chocolate

Miriam Gruss is wrong! When I was a child one of my most favourite sweets was chocolate cigarettes. I love them. To date I have never felt the impulse to “eat” a cigarette (tho I did smoke one or two) .
