Since 2012, there have been many international bodies working to find palm oil for sustainable sources.

"Today the maker of Nutella, Ferraro, was the latest company to announced a commitment to only use palm oil that is traceable to zero deforestation."

Nutritionally, Harvard say it is better for you that a trans-fat.

Cabana bars were my favourite, full of coconut and cherries, i think they stopped making them in the early 90s, new favourite in Twix white

The mention of Ovaltine chocolate reminds me of the time of Ovaltine and Horlicks tablets which came in small time during the war when sweets and chocolate was rationed.
My friends loved them, I couldn't take to them at all, they made me nauseous.

And yet again, fat not far.
I shall give up soon.

No one seems to remember my favourite chocolate bar from when I was a child - it was a triple layer of white, dark and milk chocolate. I can't remember who made it. I also loved the lime barrel in Dairy Box and Lucky Numbers sweets!
