twirls just don't get the publicity they deserve.
Haven't seen those in years. Pink and white, with nuts in? Retro. Those were okay, but in something else (ideally a Double Decker) it really comes alive.
i had a huge argument about gender and confectionary with a couple of my friends a few years ago (it has stuck with me). they argued that double decker was a feminine chocolate baras opposed to mars bar (masculine) and twirl (gender neutral). the crux of their argument was that it had orange and purple wrapping. idiots.
1. It really fills you up
2. It's stodgy
3. It's named after a bus.
It was ace
he'd get a mars or a snickers for him, ALWAYS a flake for my mum.
it's more gay than anything
my favourite colours purple and Im as rampantly heterosexual as they come
HAS to be frustrated
said that purple was the colour of sexual frustration (and orange was the colour of mental instability) fucked if i can remember who though
Or O Wilde?
i dunnowhat i would definitely put there. maybe a dairy milk?
they sell them near me it's great <3
Have no idea why everyone hates it.
and everyone is scared of being under a weird spell
quite rightly, too.
I bet if it was called 'Norwich Delight' you lot literally wouldn't be able to stop shoving it in your fat mouths.
Seems fairly uncomplicated and simple of the surface. Store them in a fridge though and they become awesome- you can even remove the bottom layer of biscuit if you fancy having a chomp.
If they were called BASTARD CHUNKS, all you bastards would love them as much as I do
All that feckin' liqourice, though.
I thought it was kind of the same.
not the layered ones, the one-coloured cubes of pure sugar.
Supposedly sponsor of the 'lympics, but bloody hard to find anywhere. Wasn't like this the first time round.
it's in every bloody shop, man.
You must live in the best city in the world.
Probably my favourite. Try it again sometime kids.
whenever i see one in a newsagents i buy one
Needless to say they were gone by about the 2nd week of January.
Back from the day when I wouldn't use products from any other team's sponsor. Including an abusive phone call to a Dagenham Motors branch.
took one look at and went "...nah".
I'd be turning my nose up at Mars and Snickers. They're the shittest choccy bar.
Never gave them a second thought, always went straight for the Mars bar.
they are brilliant. Double Deckers on the other hand are garbage. Garbage.
OH FUCK YES!
Not so much underrated as outwardly hated. I love 'em.
With celebrations being the most overrated
after enduring so many years of shit, normal KitKats (or ShitKats).
on so many levels.
normal KitKats being shit was the elephant in the room of so many childhood packed lunches.
what kind of dork had kitkats in their packed lunch?
well, not after I made the '5th May 1992' stand.
Not the jammyu ones, but the plain ones :(
(until the jammy ones came out)
always prefferred 'Gold' bars
is a million times better than feeling like you're eating someone's little finger.
a chunky's too big. They've taken a mediocre, inoffensive chocolate brand and Americanised it into a crunchy turd.
for me its the best.
especially 85% cocoa
i just CAN'T eat anything under 93%.
my work here is done.
and massive bottle of coke and some spaghetti
A taste and texture sensation
BRING BACK FUSE
in favour of 8 varieties of caramel. Also seem to be panned by everyone I know. Thorntons do little bags of cappucino chocolate which I will treat myself to whilst thinking back to a more innocent, caffeinated childhood.
You know, with the liquorice inside. Even the cheap shitty ones you buy at petrol stations are excellent.
ignored in Celebrations boxes by idiots everywhere, but so good.
Also: Crunchies are kind of underrated yeah? At least by grown ups.
If you hate them I hate you
Are these still about? I remember they started adding Guarana to them and advertising them as an energy snack. I also have a vague recollection of reading about how stupendously unhealthy they were. They contain about 3 time more sugars/calories/bad stuff than say, Mars Bars and all that lot.
Whatever the case was, eating one was like having a fucking massive line of speed. Proper jittery legs and arms. Great stuff.
Pretty shit chocolate bar, but I love them due to the fact that they used a Sharon Jones track on their ad (Got a Thing on My Mind, if I remember rightly).
By shit I just mean generic and boring. I'd still eat it if you offered me one.
So underrated the bastards ceased manufacture of them.
Very good, but seem to be unloved. Although I do baulk at paying a dollar for them, despite it just being an inevitable effect of inflation.
Carmelo is also really nice but for some reason they have decided to target the female market alone with it's packaging and ads. Silly people, I still buy it though because I am a big man and pink wrappers do not bother me.
The humble Drifter bar
