Do you fancy a Yorkie?

yorkie_bar_quot_not_for_girls

Only in England could you get away with this witty, self-deprecating, modest ad slogan. And is it true? Are there any girls out there who like Yorkie chocolate? I don’t and I’m yet to meet a girl who does. I do know men who enjoy its density. (Is this saying something?) And, is it just a coincidence that girls don’t like it or is it because we get it in our heads that we’re not supposed to and then can’t enjoy it once purchased? Damn you Yorkie and your mind games.

    Yorkies are grand, I recall an advert you’d find interesting featuring an American guy systematically slagging off everything about Britain for the duration, and that went down pretty well I recall. UPDATE: check it out here:

    , I quite like it now but at the time it made me mad and confused that we were being insulted as a nation and lapping it up.
