Random queries no.4

One of a series of genuine search engine enquiries which successfully brought visitors to the Ministry.  Can I help?

Can you name the chocolate bar that a lorry driver featured in a television advertisement

I think you mean 'Yorkie', from Nestlé (boo, hiss). From 1976 until 1992, it was marketed as the truckers' choice of chocolate bar. Nowadays it's less specifically macho, though in 2002 the advertisers took the supposedly ironic angle that 'it's not for girls'.

My own view is that it tastes of vegetable fat.

It's good to see that Baby Milk Action is now the 5th and 6th results for searches for 'Nestle' :) .
