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>

Remake?
26 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

Unless this a remake, the original (I think in b/w and from the late 1960's), then this is a bonus on the DVD of Ripping yarns.

The original story is about someone accidentally falling into a vat of the chocolate mixture, but instead of the stuff being thrown away it is made into chocolate bars and sold much to the disgust of many. However the new taste proves a hit and the trend is continued with other people being killed off and added to the stuff.

I think it is from the late 1960's but it could be wrong, and it might be early 1970's, but it is quite dated in appearance, picture, sound and general acting - unless they're being ironic in style...
