Twix Campaign Helps You Get the Girl

Twix and their ad agency (Nitro) have launched a website to go with their "Get the Girl" ad (below). The new website - www.twix.com - goes hand in hand with the commercial, where we meet out flirty yet stumbling hero. The site lets you pick the next moves, so you can see how the story turns out and whether he gets the girl. Sort of like a candy-rific Choose Your Own Adventure game.

National Chocolate Caramel Day - Who Knew?

National Chocolate Caramel Day is observed on March 19. It's a day to celebrate everything great about chocolate and caramel. While it may not be a holiday that you'll have off from work, it can be just as much fun as any other holiday. Use this day as an excuse to get your family and friends together to enjoy your favorite treats and have a ball celebrating.

1. Celebrated March 19th
2. Not a federal holiday
3. Not a holiday sanctioned by the U.S. Congress

So what if its a made up holiday, we think its a fine idea.

Rompibollo Chocolate Puts the Calorie Count on Each Piece

chocolate calories.jpgNow you can eat chocolate knowing exactly how much calories it has, if you're into that sort of thing.

"Rompibollo" is a chocolate board which can be divided in pieces of different dimensions. On the relief of each piece is the calorie count...Holy Buzz Kill Batman. On the other hand, the cool thing about this idea is that with the different dimensions, you can choose how many or how few calories you take in.

Man tries to buy M&Ms with pot; Fake Hershey's "Pot" Candy

When you gotta have your M&Ms, you gotta have your M&Ms...from the Chicago Tribune:

A New Zealand man who offered to pay with marijuana when he did not have enough money for a snack was caught by a police officer who overheard his unusual proposal, a news report said Tuesday.

Wade Churchward, 28, went to a service station on March 22 in the capital, Wellington, where he picked up two packets of M&M's candy and some potato chips, the Dominion Post newspaper reported.

But when he reached the cashier, he realized he didn't have enough money and instead offered a container with 0.042 ounces of marijuana and a pipe for smoking it, the report said.

Churchward failed to notice a patrol car outside and a police officer standing behind him in line -- who promptly arrested him.

Which brings us to an older story I stumbled upon in looking into the story above from ABC News - fake Hershey's candy with a definitive marijuana theme.

No surprise, Hershey is suing the California marijuana dealer who did this, for ripping off the company's name and using it to sell marijuana-laced knockoffs. Our favorite? Tough call, but we're going with Keef-Kat.

Chocolate Bar Calculator - So You Know How Many Candy Calories You're Eating

It is a calculator, cleverly disguised as a Hershey's-esque chocolate bar. It measures 2.5″ w x 4″ and costs $8.
