Of course, no festival could be safe from the Perpetually Indignant. From the so-called National Obesity Forum (U.K. branch), we are told the following:
Super-sized Eater eggs are a risk to health because of the extraordinary amount of sugar they contain, [these fucking busybodies] have warned.
Over-indulging youngsters could do ‘real’ damage, they say, if they consumer an entire egg in one day – all too likely at Easter.
Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Crunchie Ultimate Easter Egg contains a whopping 330g of sugar. This is the equivalent of 17 days’ worth of sugar, based on the NHS recommendation for children aged four to six to consume no more than 19g in a day.
It makes me want to go out and buy six dozen of these bad boys, and hand them out to random kids at our local playgrounds. I wonder if World Market has them in stock…
