I kept seeing the Whatchamacallit so thought it was time to review it. Is the name great or is it unbelievably stupid? Well I’m still not entirely sure! It’s quite true that people do frequently use ‘whatchamacallit’ as a noun. And Hershey’s decision to bring out a follow up bar (which has now gone to Chocolate Heaven with the other deceased bars like the Fuse and Champagne Crunchie) called the Thingamajig was equally clever/horrific. You can’t deny it’s catchy though. Because even when you forget the Whatchamacallit bar, you end up using the bar’s name trying to remember the bar’s name. It’s brilliant- like a beer called beer or a cheese called cheese…you just can’t forget it.

The Yorkie brand will surely go down as the most sexist in chocolate history. The slogan “not for girls” remains a complete mystery to me in a business sense too. You see, companies want to try and sell their products to as many people as they possibly can. Makes sense right? Well Nestle were obviously thinking outside of the box, and decided that the Yorkie brand was a great idea… when to me, immediately pissing off 50% of your potential custom seems at best strange and at worst seriously idiotic. Maybe they’ve realised this… because this limited edition Yorkie Honeycomb I bought didn’t have the famous Yorkie slogan on it anywhere.
