Do you remember either of these two chocolate products?
Attention, universe. I seem to have uncovered two conspiracies.
Two CHOCOLATE-BASED conspiracies.
You see, some people like to reminisce about their childhood or their young lover whom they kissed behind the sports shed at recess. Not me. I reminisce about chocolate. Delicious, delectable chocolate bars that have disappeared from the shelves and are no longer available to me.
And recently, those trips down Chocolate Memory Lane have lead me to uncover two Government-level (I assume) conspiracies.
Chocoholics: Prepare yourselves.
A few weeks ago my tastedbuds and I were having a reminisce about a chocolate bar called the Take 5. It is right on the edge of my memory, almost completely forgotten about, like the smell of plasticine or how to do maths. I remember the wrapper, blue like a Time Out bar. I remember it had two fingers in a packet (I swear it wasn’t the Time Out bar). And was sort of crispy on the inside, like five Maltesers in a row.
So I Googled it. And here is the conspiracy part:
Even Google doesn’t remember it.
I found two measly forums with chocolate reminiscers like myself. Both forums had vague recollections of the Take 5 similar to mine, of a blue wrapper and two fingers of chocolate with five Malteser-like bumps on each. But neither had proof. Each of them insisted, as I do, that it was NOT the American Hershey Take 5 bar (which comes up on Google), which has a red wrapper and peanuts in it. Sounds delicious, but no dice. I’m adamant about my vague recollection, and childhood friends I have spoken to distantly remember it too. Like plasticine, and maths.
