    For Christmas I was given a chocolate bar with 1500 calories.

    I kid you not!

    The card is credit card sized.

    I guess I should start sharing then?

    Give me the brand name please, I could use that as weight gainer for lifting. I want to buy a few, do they have other flavors?

    hmm. 20,920 m^2/s^2 = 2.32E-13 c^2 (energy per unit mass)

    That's a Yorkie. I dunno if they do them in the US. They might do one with nuts in too.

    :bugeye: It's a 300 g candy bar!!! :eek:

    :rofl: The slogan on it is hysterical..."it's not a pint, but it's better than socks." :rofl: I think I'd stick it in someone's Christmas stocking just for that slogan. :rofl:

    Yep, start sharing. :biggrin: :approve:

    That Yorkie campaign is not so new. It has been around for a while. I saw this quite a bit when going after that damned Twix clue in Pron.

    GB has some great advertising slogans. They seem to be able to get away with more tongue-in-cheek type stuff.

    I quite understand the thrill about getting to chew on a fat, juicy bar like that. Enjoy!

    Oh, no, they're quite right, it's not for girls...or boys...that's far too serious of a candy bar for mere children. It's definitely something only a grown woman could handle. :biggrin:

    No sweat. Once I watched Dr. Phil right after I just bought 5 of those energy bars. You know the ones that are 300 calories each. The topic was about anorexia. This girl had anorexia and while I was downing those bars, all five of them, it occurred to me from what she was saying, that I had just ate in 20 minutes what she would have eaten in a month. How about those big hershey bars? Gotta' be a 1000 or so. I've chuncked a few of those too.:!!)

    Edit: Alright, don't want to sound like a pig. I'm a big believer in calories in balanced by effort out (I had just finished exercising before those bars). Simple equation really.
