While it might not be the desired message of Easter, we certainly view it as an opportunity to (over) indulge.

Unlike Christmas where there is a whole meal centered around savoury food, we relish the opportunity to get stuck into some sweet stuff.

Yes, we're talking about chocolate (and lots of it).
