Storyline

At his new job at Chumley's Chocolates, Ian Littleton accidentally knocks several workers into a mixing vat, the contents of which are then sent to market. When reviews of the company's new candy come back, they are overwhelmingly negative, except for the areas that received the 'special ingredient'. Ian soon finds himself assigned the task of obtaining more of the ingredient to satisfy the nation's sweet tooth. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Seemingly the only person in England that remembers this film!
5 September 2002 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I have fond memories of this film when it first came out. It has probably dated badly in the mean time. But is probably worth a watch for the nypho landlady, budding tips on how to perk up your chocolate making skills with a corpse or two and Wincey Willis?!
