Thought Vomit #112: ft. Biscuits

I had an argument a few weeks back, one that actually made me fizz with actual, proper, real indignant rage. It was about the Rocky Chocolate Bar. And it IS a chocolate BAR, not a biscuit. And that’s what irked me.

My friend insists it’s a chocolate biscuit, and I KNOW FOR A FACT it’s a chocolate bar. If it is individually wrapped, and totally coated in chocolate, it’s a bar, not a biscuit. It’s the same reason a Twix is NOT a biscuit.


And anyone who disagrees with me is wrong. Plain wrong. Wronger than a wrong ‘un dipped in wrong.

Now, if it was wrapped in cheap tin foil, then I would happily concede it’s a biscuit, but the moment you wrap that same thing in a proper tear-able package, it’s become a bar.

These are the facts, and they are not in dispute. Except by my friend, who is an idiot.
