Help! Chocolate mountain!

Too many chocolates have soya lecithin in them!
I have five useless boxes of chocolates here, one started and four unstarted.

Can't bring myself to give them to anyone, because I don't like to pass on rubbish. (But if anyone wants to volunteer to relieve me of one, let me know).

Even Green and Blacks organic ones have the dreaded soya-based emulsifier. I must write to them and complain. Funny how they don't mention the dreaded soya gunk when they describe how they make it.

More on what's wrong with soya in future posts. Watch this space...

On Friday I was having lunch with a friend from nursery school who is now a reporter for Chemistry World. We were talking, amongst other things, about modern science, and about my theories (more on this in my blog soon). So I mentioned the Soya problem, and he said he'd do some research into it and see if he could find out more...the magazine's online at http://www.rsc.org/chemistryworld/
if you're interested.

Thanks for reminding me: I must deliver them to five of my remaining lovers today (if there are five men I still love: i'll have to see).


Happy Valentine's Day to all my readers!
