ok, so 8000 bars of choc made 2000L, lets say 1 bar is 60p thats 4800 for 2000 litres, which becomes 2.40 per litre. I'll keep paying 1/L for proper fuel ta. laugh

Yeah, but this is all made from waste chocolate, the stuff that the likes of Cadbury mess up and actually throw away.

So in effect, it costs nothing lol.
