    What is so fascinating about this earthworm?! Maybe in the future, they have a big one!


    An article in The Independent says that the earthworm, which was 40cm long and weighed 26g, was discovered in a vegetable patch by Paul Rees from Widnes whose stepson named it 'Dave.'

    I've recently tasted Toblerone chocolate bar. I like the triangular chunks of it.




    It may not be of interest to some people but the BBC reports on a storm of protest from lovers of the Toblerone chocolate bar after its makers, US-based Mondelez International, decided to space out its distinctive triangular chunks.

    Some good insights shared by http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/weird-news/youre-still-mourning-loss-toblerone-9256356

    People tend not to like change @Bubbly! But I'm not sure Toblerone would taste quite the same in any other shape.

    @mheredge No idea as I got a package as a gift from my sister's friend who lives in Switzerland. I tasted it for the first time and I like the bitter taste of it.

    They come in two flavours @Bubbly. I like both but prefer the dark chocolate ones. Don't you get them in Pakistan? They sell everywhere in Nepal and in India too, I think.

    @mheredge These products are available in the supermarket but I don't fancy chocolates so no motivation to especially go there for the chocolates.

    I rarely indulge in Toblerone myself @Bubbly. If I eat chocolate at all, it's maybe a bar of dark chocolate.
