    What do Athlete’s and chocolate have in common? Lots actually! Here are just a few of the chocolaty connections:

    The pride of Yorkshire, triathlon Olympians Alistair and Johnny Brownlee have grown up with chocolate as their gold medals. At age 11 and 12 the awards they received for completing long marathons was quite often chocolate! The prizes handed out in those days were Cadbury cream eggs instead of gold medals. They have come a long way since there but their chocolate cravings remain.

Swimmer and Gold medalist, Nathan Adrian is just one of the athletes who indorses the US ‘got chocolate milk’ campaign.
