The nation now faces a tricky couple of weeks of post-Christmas blues, until the mid-January launch of Cadbury’s Cream Eggs.
With the average person having eaten 400 bars of chocolate per day over the last 10 days, the first few days of January can be really tough.
Local man, Peter Thape is staying positive and has constructed a calendar that counts down the days until the eggs adorn the counter of his mini-mart once again.
‘I have to have something that will help me through today,’ said Thape.
‘Hope is all we have,’ added Thape.
