AIBU in thinking a Cadbury Twirl is not a hero?

I had a box of Cadbury chocolate given unto me. It contained Twirls, Fudges, Caramels, Eclairs, Twisteds, and Dairy Milks. The selection was called "Heroes". But they are NOT heroes! Firepersons are heroes. The Army are heroes. 4 x 4 drivers that rescue people in the snow are heroes, but chocolates?!
Imagine you've fallen down a cliff while trying to pick up a stray Homebase receipt near the edge. You're holding onto the cliff with one hand and using the other hand to use your phone. You ring 999. What do you ask for? Police, fire, coastguard, or a small half finger of fudge?!!
Is there anybody willing to start one of those petitions to call of Cadburys to change the name of their chocolate selections to "A Selection of Nearly Nice Chocolates"?!!!
I would do it myself but I'm more of an inspirational leader than a doer.

Chocolate has rescued me more times than I care to remember, its helped me through heartaches, periods, moods, hunger and more recently has saved me throwing a pan at dh when he was a fuckwit but then came in with a multipack of curly wurlys as a sorry.

All chocolate deserves the 'HERO' title in my humble opinion grin

But imagine you are feeling miserable and lonely? That box of chocs looks pretty damned heroic then, no?

Quality Street are better.

"Quality Street" should be renamed "Street". They're not quality.

I buy them for my dad because as far as I am concerned he is a hero.

YABU - chocolate is an amazing cure-all. I'm going home to sob into a bar of dairy milk after a shit week. Today, chocolate is my hero.

The twirls are the best, they are the hero of heroes.
