You don't even know what you're missing!

Mark Brown has written a funny piece for today's Chicago Sun-Times. It seems that British candy makers will no longer make King-Sized/Supersized products. Mr. Brown sings the praises of his favourite sugary concoctions, and warns that only communists would think they're making the world a better place by reducing the size of candy bars.

Here's the home truth, Mr. Brown. These things you call candy bars are, in fact, rubbish. Some things are simply better above the 49th parallel. Chocolate bars are at the top of this list. If only you could sample a Coffee Crisp, an Aero, a Mirage Bar .. you would no longer feel the need for supersized anything. It's about the quality, not the quantity.

I won't even get into Laura Secord French Mint Chocolate Bars.

Excuse me for a moment while my eyes roll heaven-wards at the mere thought of these divine concoctions .. talk amongst yourselves .. okay

Excuse me for a moment further as I contemplate Bill O'Reilly bursting into spontaneous combustion at the thought of French Mint Chocolate named after the Canadian heroine who prevented an attack by those damned Yankees during the war of 1812.

It's gonna be a great day!
