Hungary's government wants to impose a 'chocolate tax'

The Hungarian government has submitted a bill to parliament which would create a special tax of between five percent and 20 percent on food and drink products which contain excessive levels of salt or sugar.

This tax is already known as the "chocolate tax" and the authorities hope it will make the nation healthier.
