100-year-old eats 30 bars of chocolate a week!

It is often said that eating too much of chocolate is bad, but for Peggy Griffiths, it certainly seems to have worked out well.

Griffiths has turned 100 and is still scoffing thirty bars of chocolate a week.

Peggy, of Abbotsham, Devon, England, has munched her way through an estimated 70,000 Cadbury's Dairy Milk bars that would weigh four tons.

She owned her own sweet shop in the 1930s - until it closed down after she ate all of the profits.

"When I was young I could buy a bar of chocolate with my pocket money. It only cost tuppence and tasted exactly like it does now," the Sun quoted Peggy, as saying.

Her daughter Eileen Osborne said: "When mum was a little girl, her mother told her that sweets were bad for you but chocolate was good. She absolutely loves it. She's a chocoholic and her diet agrees with her."
