the world's largest chocolate fondue party

Mmmm, the house smells like chocolate. But I don't want to eat any (more).

That'll be because our party tonight was part of the Stop the Traffik World's Largest Fondue Party and I already ate more than my fair share of chocolate for one day!

We've eaten strawberries and kiwi fruit and banana and orange and marshmallows and liquorice and Chicos and biscotti all dipped in Fair Trade Chocolate fondue that did not involve the trafficking or exploitation of anyone in the course of its production. (Bother, I've just googled Chicos and realised they are made by Allens who are now owned by Nestle, the king of unfair trade practices. Guess I won't be buying them again)

In the end we had a great night with a nice number of people attending. We dipped our food and fed our faces until we began to feel slightly ill and then participated in the obligatory chocolate game until we felt most definitely unwell:

As much as we had a good time, I hope we also helped to make a difference for the 12,000 people caught up in slavery and traffiking as a result of the chocolate industry. If you want to know more about this issue, check out the Stop the Traffik website here for all sorts of facts and information.
