To dunk or not to dunk - Cadbury's Flake

Advantages: Crumbliest Flakiest Chocolate

Disadvantages: Crumbliest Flakiest Chocolate (see below)

Do they still have the adverts for these on the telly where you are meant to, by some Freudian slip of your imagination, visualise that some lady about to bite into one of these is about to give a guy a .... 

Right start again! 

MMM what a lovely finger of crumbly chocolateliness, but you can't easily dunk them. 

You need to be able to dunk stuff like this. I don't care how sophisticated and *ahem* sexy, the adverts are supposed to look, I want to dunk my flake. 

So, you ask, why are they not so easy to dunk? 

well it depends on how you want to eat it. 

Flakes being the "...crumbliest, flakiest chocolate..." that "... tastes like chocolate never tasted before..." tends to be crumbly and flaky! Right, so if you are doing that thing where you keep half the wrapper, wrapped halfway down the flake so as not to get melted chocolate all over your fingers, when you come to dunk, all the little crumbles and flakes that are in the wrapper are going to drop into your tea, the minute you dip. 

This spoils the whole flake experience, because when you finish a flake, you do the same thing with it that you do with a packet of crisps, that is, you tip the crumbs from the packet, or in a Flake's case the tube of a wrapper you have left, into your mouth. 

Now if they have already gone into year tea, not only does this spoil your flake experience, it also spoils to some degree your cuppa. 

So to dunk or not to dunk, that is the dilemma.

Summary: A tasty snack that is over all too soon
