Much underrated on these shores. Far superior to a Ferrero Rocher.
wouldn't compare them to other things though. theres room in my belly for all treats
I retract my OP, with shame.
Fucking UKIP EVERYWHERE!
"Boost was launched in 1985 as a tough coconut and caramel bar, coated in chocolate. It was then relaunched in a further two variants: a peanut version with peanut butter (yellow wrapper) and a biscuit version. The coconut version is no longer available. The peanut variant is now called a Starbar. Starbar originally existed before peanut Boost but was taken off the market and rebranded. Then they changed their mind and rebranded it as Starbar again. The biscuit version is now the standard Boost bar."
So the cops knew that internal affairs were setting them up?
I do not consider it to be a peanut butter based chocolate. I'm sorry but I don't.
strongly believes her creation to be a peanut-butter based chocolate
Off the top of my head - Initially popular in the mid-1970s, in the mid-1960s Starbar was invented by Linda Allison, and was promoted as the “munchiest bar ever”. It was later rebranded as Nudge and in the 1980s it briefly became “peanut Boost”, only to return to Starbar as popularity of the Boost bar waned. In the early 90s Cadburys decided to relaunch the Starbar as a result of a visit to Percy St Johns Primary School on Tyneside. During the visit a pupil designed a new label for the Starbar and Cadburys were so impressed that they used the new label and it is still in circulation today. Cadbury produced a limited edition ‘Pam Bar’ modelled on the Miller McCowan ‘Wham Bar’ as a prize to the pupil for helping with the relaunch but due to copyright infringements this never made it into the shops.

It's certainly mellowed with age though.
got too mellow?
These days it's the Bounty bar that plays hardball:
"In 2003, Mars registered the shape of the Bounty bar as a trademark in the European Union. This was appealed by Ludwig Schokolade, a German confectionery company. In 2009, the European Court of First Instance in Luxembourg upheld the appeal, stating "The allegedly distinctive characteristics, namely the rounded ends of the bar and the three arrows or chevrons on top of it, cannot be sufficiently distinguished from other shapes commonly used for chocolate bars"."

(that's a different picture than usual!)
Stick to dishing out the Werther's.
is a crime. Even the 24 ones.
And the FIRST thing to go through my head was "there's so such fun in toffifee" Hadn't even recalled seeing the advert in weeks. Good work Advertising!
Good work advertising!
was proven to be the "munchiest bar ever". Does it still hold this title?
1 is water
10 is original Starbar (Allison, in her hubris, used her own (peanut-butter based) invention as the maximum munchiness - we now know this to be incorrect).
You actually measure munchiness using the Allison Device (though these days it's usually done digitally)
Of course, the advent of Monster Munch - first recorded as a (contested) 11.2 - destroyed the credibility of the scale and the reputation of the Starbar overnight. Allison never recovered.
If so, no.
We all know that Linda Allison invented the Starbar in the mid-1960s and as a result became a regular on the 60s scene, hanging with Twiggy and the Beatles and Dylan (yes, I know you know, I'm just setting the scene). There were always vague rumours of her being involved with Ringo, Donovan, a few others, but I've found out that she was actually involved with...Ludwig Schokolade. I know! They were supposed to be rivals at the time so it was kept quiet. But wait, there's more.
We all think Allison disappeared from the public eye after the Monster Munch scandal, but she was actually around for a few years after that, experimenting with methods of increased munchiness (using controversial methods, some say) - she actually disappeared in 1985. Why? I have discovered that she had a child with Schokolade that year. We all know Schokolade was a violent and unpredictable man, so the child was kept secret from him. I can find no record of the child UNTIL the mid-90s when a child called Ludwiga Allison was enrolled Percy St Johns Primary School on Tyneside. I believe it was this child that designed the new logo for the Starbar (mentioned above). The resulting fame threatened the child's anonymity though and Ludwiga was no longer present at the school from the next term onwards.
BUT this child was clearly some kind of chocholate prodigy and it is my belief that she has been working (possibly against her mother's wishes) on developing an insanely munchy bar, so munchy that there are shadows here and there of US military interest in such a discovery.
I'm so close to tying all these ends together but we may be running out of time...
Up there with the Carol Smilee dishwasher tablets ones for me at the mo.
just the mere mention of "her" name gets Lucien's precum flowing.
