    I don't know Yenrod, where are you expecting her to accomodate it?

    Personally I could eat one, if I wished, but I don't since they a) changed it to make it soft like any old chocolate as opposed to the jaw breaking trucker's bar and :angry: said it wasn't for girls. Telling half your target audience they aren't fit to eat your product is really stupid.

    You'd think that, but then Yorkies have been around since I were a lad and probably a lot longer than that.

    Agree with the above though, they are disgusting. Just brown coloured, highly sweetened, hydrogenated fat.

    I know, but it was only a few years ago they started this "not for girls" advertising, and I haven't had one since. I always had a Yorkie Easter Egg as a kid, because it came in a lorry shaped box, more interesting than most.

    There used to be a big advertising hoarding next to the railway line coming into York that said Welcome to York with the York bit like it had been torn off a Yorkie wrapper, because of course, they used tobe made here. Probably made abroad now. And not the same since they started to make then softer, and less jawbreaking.

    Was it actually marianne faithful who congressed with the mars bar, or did she trespass upon mick jagger with it? I never did get to the bottom of this.

    Never been a big fan of wagon wheels. In fact, I imagine they are what the real thing tastes like.

    That's true that is. They used to be the size of real wagon wheels, you could use them to replace one if it got broken. Now, they're just biscuits. Haven't had one for ages.

    Damn, guess what I want now!:sad:
     
  14. Everything's worse than it used to be. We must all be getting old.:sad:
