Is it a day for International Men or an international day for men? One of these is good. One is evil.

Not quite - from a local government perspective it's supposed to be a chance to focus on (for example) things like men's higher rates of suicide and to champion appropriate support services, but it does generally become a bit of a Fathers4Justice-like circus.

Yorkies are probably banned in Sweden.

Eddie Hall likes them. Therefore, I'm basically as strong as him.

Nothing wrong with either. What do you regard proper chocolate?

I think we are less likely to know what your chocolate bars are. Boost has a weird filling which is quite undescribable with caramel. Very chewy.

Less your classic chocolate bars, but I tend to get the slabs of chocolate in breakable pieces. You can't go wrong with Lindt, both their milk and dark are lovely. Godiva also do very nice stuff. A sucker for anything praline. Someone bought me a Hotel Chocolat praline selection that was lush.

If I had to go with a more conventional bar, regular Kit-kat chunky or dark bounty, but they're far from a first preference.

Apples and oranges. Slabs of breakable chocolate are great and all, but you're hardly going to pack that down on the go when you're peckish. I buy (cheap) slabs of chocolate and pick at them at home, but not during the day.

Well you shouldn't, but I definitely do gobble the whole thing every now and then :blush:

Depends where you are when you're picking something up on the fly I guess, but as I tend to find myself in London fro a lot of social stuff you're never far from a decent sized shop which would have big enough confectionery section to have a decent slab selection, break off a few pieces and keep the rest to take home.

Chocolate isn't great for us and should be consumed in moderation, as such I think that when you do have some it should be of the best quality.

Well, yeah. I've been known to consume large quantities of chocolate in one go. I meant more that it wouldn't occur to me to get a bit of Lindt (or Sainsbury's) chocolate as a snack during work. I'd get a Wispa/Kitkat/Twix/etc and only eat the bigger slabs at home. Hence I consider them different enough that I wouldn't compare them.
