    Thats what we need...Extreme cooling :)

    Anyone fancy trying a deep freeze :p and if freezing your choco bar improves lastability?

    Yes, just plain yes. These taste so good when used as straws. I can't comment on using tea but do it with orange squash which is awesome.

    Squash > Tea ... stops degrading molecular stability :|

    No drink goes better with a biccy (chocolate or not) than a good cup of tea.

    i'm thinking frozen butterfinger crisp.


    oh wait, you lads don't get those on the right side do you?


    and forget the tea - try it with a nice cup of properly brewed, sweetened, and creamed coffee. (none of that sissy french press or nasty perculatored junk - Bunn pots or hand poured through a melitta cup filter please - 1 oz by volume medium grind per 16 oz water. )

    Hmm, do Cadbury's still make the "Spira"? It was basically a chocolate tube with open ends & 6 ribs in a spiral pattern.

    They were just a chocolate-coated flake tbh. Pretty good. :D

    They could work quite well though.

    I would very much like to see my abs by the end of summer. This thread has put that endeavour in serious jeopardy.

    No, that was the "Twirl". The Spira had pretty thick (2-3mm?) sidewalls.

    To answer my own question, the Spira is long gone. I just found an online petition asking for it to come back.

    Ahh... I remember I used to mix up Spira and Twirl. They are variations on the same awesome theme though. :p

    Have a go with Tim Tams. There is a thing called (I think) a Tim Tam Explosion which apparently Kylie loves. I was introduced to it by a teacher at school but you bite off the opposite corners from a Tim Tam (which is like a Penguin bar with a softer middle) then suck up warm tea until some come out the top, then stuff it all in your mouth and munch it.

    If it very yummy, but be careful with the temperature of the tea - too hot and it all explodes on the way to your mouth/burns you

    Flake - almost failure. Falls apart and barely makes a straw. Lasted all of 3 seconds.

    Overall, not very good.

    Crunchie - Takes a LOT of scucking to get it up. I found, breaking it into 1/4ths or so made it easier. The honeycombe is awesome when full of tea.
