airship modestly declares with a (Turkish) delight, that he has undoubtedly and single-handedly resolved the case of any missing hazelnuts (and possibly the hazelnut entrepreneurs) (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/7926633.stm)... :ok:

The blame should fall squarely on Cadbury's tablet, unless some it also deserves to fall triangularly on Toblerone (conveniently based in Switzerland, I might add)...

Or are my deductions based on all too-Flakey evidence?

I think you missed some quotes in the title ... that stuff Cadbury makes doesn't really deserve the title "chocolate". Not enough actual cocoa in there. :uhoh:

But it tastes soooooooooooo good. It has to be the best chocolate in the world, and it has to be from Birmingham. Cadbury's chocolate made outside the UK tastes nothing like the original. I want some now!!! and I can't:{:{

I would be surprised if there weren't more than Five Boys interested - possibly even a Double Decker load!

I'll bet they even like chocolate on Mars!

By February 2002, Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi and Belgium's KBC Bank had lent 22.8m euros ($29.6m; 20.3m) to the Turkish hazelnut supplier Baskan Gida...
...This left Baskan Gida as "a worthless shell", the court heard, although it is hard to tell if the lawyers involved have spotted the pun.
As a result, the banks only got about 2m euros of their money back.

Looks like they got the full-cream treatment (deservedly or not) though...

Needless to say, these banks are probably already benefitting from the recent largesse of UK taxpayers by now (for this and other completely unrelated bad loans 'ever since the froth' was siphoned off into bankers' bonuses) and the UK taxpayer's only recourse today is to consult their dentist. :}

Whatever, I don't pretend to have all the answers. It's truly mysterious. Perhaps there's a lady or 2 involved? That may be it. We all know that ladies can be extremely manipulative. Perhaps it's time to bring out a Milk Tray or 2?!
