** for people who need to count carbohydrate as part of their regime, the following indicative values, based on theoretical results, have been provided by the manufacturer of the chocolate and may be used as a guide. We cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies that may result from the manufacturer’s data. We cannot calculate any additional carbohydrate resulting from the flavourings that we use because they will vary slightly from product to product, but the addition per chocolate is very small.
