Chocolate. The secret to good mental health

Chocolate. The secret to good mental health

 

Imagine going 40 whole days without chocolate. Not a Bounty, not a Mars Bar, not a fun-sized Milky Way (and everybody knows they barely count as chocolate), not even a single chocolate button. That’s the impressive feat of self-denial that designer, Nic Hearnshaw and Design Director, Nic Shuttleworth have pulled off. In a rash moment, both decided to test their combined Credit union willpower for Lent to see if they could go for a full 40 days without chocolate. Apparently, the side effects were the worst part. Nic S reports having felt ‘ill’ and ’slightly mad’ for the entire 40 days. In fact, the whole experience nearly sent them both a bit fruit and nut. Thankfully, Easter’s upon us and they’re already planning a return to sanity with a chocolate binge of epic proportions, starting with this Thornton’s Easter Egg.
