April 13, 2007
So I bought some Mars Planets, the new Mars snack the other day. They’re like Revels, except there’s only three different types: chocolate-coated nougaht, chocolate-caramel, and chocolate-coated honeycomb (obstensibly like Malteasers, but made from a chewier, moister honeycomb, like the occasional weird Malteaser you’d get where it was sticky and chewy instead of crunchy as it hadn’t be mixed enough or something).
The point being, of course, that each individually represents one element of a Mars bar, so you eat all three together and get the same taste… but hang on! There’s no honeycomb in Mars bars! Where has this interloper came from, and why is it in the pack?! Presumably the concept of ‘three’ being the ‘magic number’ holds a lot of sway with Mars.
Collolorary: There should be Mars-with-honeycomb pieces bar! That’d be awesome.
