Apparently. I'm not convinced, but that might be because I'm not a woman.
I do know that it's quite a popular thing to give up for Lent though. I haven't, but I wonder how many of you have?
I see that Cadbury's have done their bit to reduce the tempation by recalling a lot of their products again. Typically I am slightly behind with the times but I will share my opinions on the issue nonetheless. I was thinking about the recall earlier, as you do, and thinking that this really is bureacracy gone mad, to coin a phrase.
If I have understood it correctly, it is all to do with the fact that the chocolate in question has not been labelled properly ; specifically it lacks a nut allergy warning. Now, forgive me if I am wrong, but if you had purchased said chocolate and heard about the recall you would now be aware of the potential risk. Returning the chocolate for a correctly labelled replacement would do nothing to change the fact that if you're allergic to nuts then eating it might not be a good idea. In fact, it would acheive nothing bar some unnecessary wastage and some extra costs for Cadbury's.
