Credit Crunchie

I really love Crunchie.

I remembered this when I ate one yesterday.

Chocolate is fantastic in its own right. One could argue that chocolate combined with any foodstuff is potentially 50% fantastic. Chocolate and orange, chocolate and toffee, chocolate and caramel, chocolate and coffee, chocolate and mint, chocolate and lamb, chocolate and nut, chocolate and et cetera. Chocolate and honeycomb is a great combination in exactly the same way that porridge and lamb probably isn't.

Honeycomb in particular reminds me of a bygone age. When my Dad worked for the brewery and used to visit Fry's Chocolate Factory every once in a while. Because among the best things about Fry's (and there were many, given its Chocolate Factory Status) was the fact that you could buy bags of broken honeycomb there. And my Dad never let us down.

Anyway, like I said, I had a Crunchie yesterday and it tasted good. I couldn't remember the last time I'd had a Crunchie prior to yesterday, and although I have no intention of keeping some sort of chocolate diary, I rationalised that I should always endeavour to remember My Last Crunchie. Not, I hasten to add, the last Crunchie I'll ever eat, but rather the tableau of my most recent Crunchie eating. It's something that we should all recall.

I think, for a limited period, that Cadbury should rename Crunchie as Credit Crunchie. And maybe knock 5p off the price.
