a finger of fudge
I was reminded today, that I noticed a woman coming out of the newsagent at the supermarket the other day, a middle aged, bespectacled, greyish haired woman in a blue anorak, eating what appeared to be a Cadbury's Fudge.
It struck me as strange that she would be eating a finger of Fudge. Incongruous, somehow. I didn't quite believe my eyes - a feat of observation considering my eyesight and the distance - clearly I can recognise chocolate bar wrappers from twenty paces - a talent!
Perhaps the incongruity is due to the ad campaign, now the only people I expect to see eating Fudge bars are conker-wielding schoolboys in shorts and round caps, circa 1952.
