Why you chose the hazelnut swirl

You can tell much about a person by the way they demolish a box of chocolates, a therapist says.

New Zealand therapist, counsellor and author of Chocolate Therapy Murray Langham can help people understand what makes them pick the nut praline over the Caramello; and release the guilt that weighs heavily on their minds for eating it.

He will be giving three workshops on July 14 (noon, 2.30pm and 6pm) at the Dunedin City Library as part of the 2009 Dunedin Cadbury Chocolate Carnival.

The carnival will open on Saturday, July 11 with the Cadbury Dairy Milk Gala Day at the Edgar Centre, with interactive entertainment and the "Freddo Show".

Cadbury events co-ordinator Lee-Anne Anderson said the festival was now in its ninth year and would include a chocolate cooking class, chocolate sculpting, chocolate painting, and the traditional Cadbury Jaffa Race, which would be held on July 17 on Baldwin St.

Last year, 30,000 Jaffas were rolled down the world's steepest street and $70,000 was raised for charity. This year's beneficiaries would be Parents Centre NZ Inc and The Malcam Charitable Trust, she said.

"Cadbury are thrilled to be involved in an event that celebrates the community.

"We want to help our partner organisations raise as much money as possible so they can continue to deliver the important programmes and courses that are so valuable for families and youth today."

The carnival will end on July 17 with the Larnach Castle Cadbury Winter Ball.
