I haven’t always been a big fan of sweets, and chocolate in particular never held much allure until recently. Those commercials where the actress takes a bite of a cocoa-confection and gets just a liiiittle too excited still repulse me…
“All you need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”
but I think that’s more the absurdity of the message they’re trying to push: candy is life changing [read: all women are sad sacks with chocolate fetishes].
I’m not exactly a bra burning feminist, but this ad genre really grosses me out: Annoying Choco-Promotion; as if high heels, runs in our stockings and big dogs(?) are life’s biggest stressors.
Someone getting that much pleasure out of a piece of candy makes me feel like their life (and stomach) must be pretty empty, and that is a super bummer.
Forget the tiny squares of chocolate, I want a giant square of these dense, fudge-like brownies.
