How do I say this? Well, I got a promotion and I've got to go to Canada! CANADA!!! I'm still letting it sink in. Once the t's are crossed and the i's are dotted, I'll be on my way to Toronto to start, hopefully, the next phase of my life. Maybe I'll have more luck with women there? Hmm...

Anyway, I do believe they have internet out there, so I will be back, but I expect I'm going to be very busy for a while. So, for the time being I'm going incommunicado, but I will return. Hopefully, with stories of chocolate from Canada.

Bloody Canada...

And yet the Cadbury's let Forrest Mars borrow their chocolate for what would become the Mars bar. What the hell happened after that? Did he water it down or something?

Galaxy used to taste, er, shall we say uniquely milky, but these days it's pretty vile.

I have only been to London once and that was the Christmas before I was 10. My mum and I went for a long weekend. We didn't go anywhere near any chocolate shops but I had a wonderful time.

When I think of London at Xmas, I can still feel the horror of the last Xmas Eve I was up there, which was many moons ago. It was utter hell. I thought you couldn't get any more people in London, but I was wrong. I attempted one tube journey and have never experienced such a crush in my whole life; it was terrifying! I vowed after that that I would never go to London again and would definitely never go there at Xmas!!!

We have a shop here that's dedicated to American imports. I bet they do these. I avoid the place like the plague.

I must admit that there are better pralines out there, although I think the centre is similar to Nutella, is it not?

You're definitely on the button with Ferrero Rondnoir. Dark, mysterious and yummy, just like me!

There are some mint chocolates out there made with milk chocolate. Personally, I don't like that mix and prefer mint and dark.

London is a horrific place! People everywhere! On the street, in the shops, on the buses, on the underground! It's insane. I avoid the place wherever possible.

What is it about Ferrero Rocher that you don't like, Rainbow?

I could have pointed you to places where your fiver would have been better spent.

It's possible I've had these, but I can't remember. I remember the coconut one, though.

I think I'll be giving Paul A. Young's shop a miss, unless you bought something that's good.
