It looks like this deal will go ahead which is good for shareholders based on stock value. Whether this is the best deal for Thorntons chocolate lovers remains to be seen. In all likelihood this year won't see any changes as larger companies have locked in Christmas 2015 already, but it is 2016 which remains a tasty mystery. I look forward to the future and hope it is for the best for the children of West Africa as well as the British consumer.
Described as one of the most chemically perfect of foods, chocolate contains an interesting mix of ingredients which make you predisposed to like it. Caffeine, antioxidants and proteins are all present in addition to chemicals such as Serotonin which purportedly recreate the feelings of being in love.
