As the Easter eggs roll onto the shelves, old favourite Cadbury’s Dairy Milk has been named as Nottinghamshire’s most popular chocolate to have for Easter, beating Galaxy into second place and soaring away from Snickers, Ferrero Rocher and Caramel who made up the top five.
Dairy Milk, which first rolled off the Cadbury production line in 1905 led the field by some margin, perhaps not surprisingly given that Brits go through 16 million of them a day1.
The survey, conducted by money-saving site Voucherbox questioned Brits on their love for chocolate, with the full top ten favourites for Easter in Nottinghamshire is as follows:
TOP OF THE CHOCS IN NOTTINGHAMSHIRE
1 Dairy Milk
4 Ferrero Rocher
6 Fruit & Nut
9 Peanut M&Ms
10 Kit Kat Chunky
The survey also found that one in four people in Nottinghamshire are spending approximately £219 a year on chocolate as they get their daily fix.
Yet 41 per cent of those surveyed have no idea how much they’re spending, and almost half of respondents (48%) say the cost wouldn’t sway their choice anyway.
Chocolate habits may be down to the UK public seizing the opportunity to spend some alone time, with a massive 52% confessing to eating it by themselves. So much for loving someone enough to give away your last Rolo, as only 20% say they are happy to share their treat with their partner.
Over a third (36 per cent) of the population reach for a solid bar above all others – almost double that of the nutty variety which sits in second place (19 per cent).
Interestingly a chewy chocolate is way down the list with only 2 per cent of the nation voting it as their favourite type to accompany their egg this Easter.
