    A question of idle curiosity: but what is the "Yorkie" product being advertised on the billboards inside most Premiership grounds, and why is there a slash through the silhouette of a woman inside the letter "O"?

    Also curious about the taste of Pukka Pies, if you have an opinion. :)

    Yorkie is a chocolate bar, something like the new fat Kit-Kat.
    Pukka Pie..Idunno...Pukka is Ozzie for 'the real thing.' and they do like their meat pies down there. Sounds too much like 'Puke-a' to me.

    Best advertising gimmick of the millenium, thus far

    So there's a chocolate bar kinda like a Kit Kat, which is advertised as "not for girls!"?

    What's so rugged and manly about it? Do they have TV commercials? How do they go?

    Thanks for the indulgence.

    Some of the adverts are just too good though. I agree, one of the best marketing schemes ever!

    Is it just plain chocolate or is there any kind of filling?

    It's a solid, manly, block of milk chocolate.

    I heard some one involved in the marketing of Yorkie's speaking on the radio and they explained the ad campaign. It's because there are tons of chocolates out there aimed at women and none at men so they thought they'd get their own back.

    It's great!

    They even did a limited edition in pink ;)
