The chocolate, called Slim-Choc, was marketed in the UK and due to the ads saying that it can help lose weight, the product instantly became popular. Soon the consumer watchdog announced about the scam and data gathered from people who bought the product showed that 78% of those who fell for it were women. However, there were also a lot of men who bought the product, considering that it might help cure them from impotence and hair loss. According to the manufacturer of the chocolate, Slim-Choc can help a person lose 20lb in 20 days, without the need to exercise or stay on a specific diet. The ads stated that Slim-Chop represented a "brand new revolutionary cure for the obese and overweight." It also said that the product was "the first and only chocolate that burns off fat and cellulite".

I think that alot of those diet pills and such on the market are scams. Everyone wants a quick fix and wants to loose weight without having to do any calorie counting and exercise. I can see how this Slim Choc would get alot of woman to buy it.
