A new study has found that almost half of adults lie to their partners about having an obsession with chocolate. 

Researchers at the British Heart Foundation (BHF) also found that it is harder for people to give up chocolate than it is to give up alcohol, caffeine and sex.

The study results revealed that the average person eats roughly three chocolate bars each week and that people have even hidden wrappers to disguise that they've indulged in chocolate. 

The "Outnumbered" panel discussed the researchers' findings about chocolate.  

Melissa Francis remarked that she's disturbed by the idea of hiding chocolate consumption.

"Am I the only one who that's disturbed by the idea of hiding your chocolate habit from your partner?" Francis questioned. "I mean are they really judging you on how many calories you're eating on your chocolate intake? Are you kidding me? That's terrible!"
