Chocolate rage hits commuters

Fancy risking the wrath of chocolate-deprived women, stumbling to work desperate for a fix to restore the orgasmic feeling that comes with consumption of the cocoa bean?

Metro distributors faced potential assaults from stiletto-wielding, handbag-waving women when the newspaper teamed up with Yorkie to give away an advertising wraparound and free chocolate bar at mainline train and Underground stations – the catch was, the giveaway was only for men.

It was all part of Yorkie’s “It’s not for girls” positioning, and it doubtless provided plenty of opportunities for blokes to try out chat up lines like “Fancy a nibble” and “Look at the size of my bricks” on envious lady commuters.

The Diary eagerly awaits the first report of a “chocolate rage” injury.
