      This is one of my favourites. It’s the Mars Bar. It must be about the most filling, sweet, gooey sweet on the market and people can’t get enough of it.

      The Mars advertisements on British TV were famous: “A Mars a day helps you work, rest and play.” Of course, they stopped that quite some time ago and things were left for years until someone decided that they should revive it and give it a new slogan which

      is um…I forget, but it’s quite unforgettable.

      That’s the trouble with advertising. It can take over from the object it is advertising. We all knew the slogan in the old days, but it wasn’t the reason why we bought Mars Bars. We bought them because we enjoyed them. That’s the reason why I still buy them. They are the sort of sweet to take with you when you expect to find yourself miles from anywhere and needing something that will give you energy and flavour. It is the sort of sweet that you can chill in the fridge for a hot summer’s day in slices for friends to consume with a guilty smile. It can be used to provide energy for a team of people, such is the amount of sugar in it. It wouldn’t be described as a health food, it must be admitted. That is probably why the European Union in its infinite wisdom,

      tried to ban Mars Bars, along with bananas that were too straight or too bent.

      You need to decide for yourself what the reason you buy one type of confection over another may be. For me, it’s a simple matter of buying things I enjoy the taste of. I don’t buy them because they are healthy. Of course they aren’t. They are fundamentally sugar, as anyone with an iota of intelligence knows. This one has a coating of

      thick, milk chocolate and a gooey, caramel inside. It’s just what you need at certain times and it is a delight that it still exists, even if the health police tell us that it wouldn’t be allowed now if it had just been invented (by whom, I do not know). If they don’t like it, then it certainly has my vote, for one! I love it, like millions of other people. Long may it continue to be made.
