I started reading an article about posh chocolate being recession proof and came across this paragraph:
As a child I never ventured much beyond a Yorkie bar or a Kit Kat. I thought a Turkish Delight was the height of sophistication. My mother would come home with a slab of Dairy Milk or Fruit and Nut and we'd all go into paroxysms of joy. I think of these days with horror.
Shame on you Lucy Cavendish, who is writing in www.telegraph.co.uk Can't give you the exact link because for some reason I can't copy and paste anything into this blog at the moment.
This is just snobbery of the most blatant kind. I know there's a huge difference in taste between Dairy Milk and 70% cocoa solids expensive one plantation chocolate, but that's all it is - a matter of taste. Ultimately it's what the individual prefers. Yes I love very expensive chocolate - but in general cannot afford it - though Lidl and Aldi do some bars which are relatively cheap. But in my opinion snobbery should not come into it - each to their own taste.
