You Can Now Buy A Massive Tin Of Lindor Chocolates

Friends, Romans, chocoholics, lend me your ears, for I bring you good news: you can now buy a massive tin of Lindor!

Yes, supermarkets across the country are flogging a huge selection box of the festive treats for just £15, so you better move quickly if you want to get your grubby little hands on them.

The exciting news was shared on the popular Facebook page Money Saver Online, which posted a snap of the 400g tin - boasting a plethora of chocolaty goodness, including Milk, White, Extra Dark, Milk & White, Hazelnut, and Salted Caramel - to its page this week.

A description of the selection box reads: "Share the bliss with Lindt Lindor chocolate truffles Assorted Tin, with six blissful varieties included there's a flavour for everyone - from classic Milk, White and Extra Dark truffles, or the irresistible Hazelnut, Milk & White, or the new Salted Caramel.

"Since 1845, Lindt Master Chocolatiers have been combining expertise and the finest ingredients to produce the perfectly round chocolate shell filled with an irresistibly smooth melting centre.

"The Lindor Assorted Tin is the perfect chocolate selection to make sharing this Christmas truly special."

The tins are available at Sainsbury's, Wilko and Tesco, though it's sold out online with them.

Now, if you're worried about munching your way through the tin well before the festive period, we have some good news for you: chocolate is good for you, apparently.

According to a recent study, eating milk chocolate for your first meal of the day can provide some unexpected side effects - such as helping your body burn fat.

Researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, US, gave 100 grams of milk chocolate to 19 post-menopausal women within one hour of waking up and then again one hour before they went to sleep for two weeks.

You'd probably expect that a couple of weeks of that diet would soon see the pounds beginning to to pile on, but that's not actually what happened.

Instead, results found the chocolate intake made no difference in the participants' weight and actually aided weight loss.

The study suggested that eating chocolate in the morning can actually help burn fat and reduce glucose levels in the blood.

To get technical about it, the reason behind this may be down to the chemicals in cocoa, which chocolate is made out of. Called flavanols, they supposedly increase fat oxidation.

Eating the chocolate at night, meanwhile, helped the test's subjects to regulate sleeping patterns and alter metabolism.

During the trial, participants weren't restricted on what else they ate alongside their milk chocolate diet.

Frank A.J.L. Scheer, a neuroscientist with the division of sleep and circadian disorders, said: "Having chocolate in the morning or the evening/night results in differential effects on hunger and appetite, substrate oxidation, fasting glucose, microbiota (composition and function), and sleep and temperature rhythms."

He added: "Our findings highlight that not only 'what' but also 'when' we eat can impact physiological mechanisms involved in the regulation of body weight.

"Our volunteers did not gain weight despite increasing caloric intake."

That's me sold.
