Irish are chocolate mad - kinds enjoying a chocolate fountain with all the trimmings

A new report by Food from Britain indicates that Ireland has the highest per capita consumption of chocolate in the world. Approximately 24.7 pounds of chocolate are consumed each year per Irish capita.

reports on Ireland’s staggering sweet tooth. The chocolate market in Ireland is valued at an impressive $677 million dollars, surely much to the delight of places like Butlers Chocolate Cafe and Lily O’Briens.
