My ears are very proud today. Why? Because the enigma wrapped in sportiness and green fur that is Green Ted (@Green_Tedward) has written a very special guest review for my blog. Thanks Tedward! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did:
“Green Ted Writes Down Some Thoughts About Colman’s Mustard Chocolate
I am not sure that just because we can do something it automatically follows that we should. To genetic modification of crops, wearing socks for more than one day at a time and attending One Direction concerts can be added mustard flavoured chocolate.
I ate this bar of chocolate and it was OK. At first I thought it looked a bit like ordinary plain chocolate and after careful examination I decided this was how it tasted too. I could definitely taste the chocolate, which is important for a chocolate bar, but there was precious little action in the mustard direction and there was absolutely no taste of Colmans at all.
I suspect this is a cunning marketing strategy devised to broaden the appeal of the product, but fundamentally misconceived. This would not go well on a ham sandwich or in a poultice although at a push it would be OK on sausages.
I enjoyed unwrapping the chocolate. The wrapper provided just the right amount of challenge without being difficult or beyond the skills of a small bear. The bar was a good size and despite the central heating kept a good neat snap that followed the lines in a satisfactory manner. As a result if you were a bear that a) shares chocolate and b) cares about whole numbers, it would be possible to share this chocolate using reasonably close to whole number ratios. In extremis, I think a small bear could use this chocolate bar as a raft if they were caught in a flood.
In summary, it is an OK chocolate bar but don’t put it on your sausages.
