CHUPA CHUPS
I asked you about Chupa Chup lollies previously. I found there web site (www.chupachups.com) and they say it contains 60 calories per 12g sucker but contains no fat. Is this really possible if its ingredience is cocoa butter and cocoa butter?

Dear Chupa
Cocoa powder contains 22g of fat per 100g, which is derived from cocoa butter, so I can't understand why these manufacturers insist that their product does not contain any fat! Can't you try making your own lollies by freezing fruit juice or skim milk plus artificial sweetener and flavourings like vanilla?
