Mobile phones quell sweet tooth: The food industry in Britain is blaming cell phone use for declining chocolate sales.

Simon Mowbray from the trade magazine The Grocer told The Sunday Telegraph chocolate sales have fallen from $3.9 billion to $3.7 billion because youngsters are spending more money on mobile phones than on candy.

"Children are walking into news agents, and instead of buying a Mars bar they are scrabbling together enough change to buy a �5 ($7.20) top-up card so they can keep using their mobiles," lamented Mowbray. (Wired news)
