What Really Grinds My Gears - 3

You know what really grinds my gears - the new Mars bar.

Has anyone else seen the advertisement for the new Mars Caramel? Doesn't the Mars Original have caramel? I mean really, what was that gooey brown stuff that tasted like and had the same sticky consistency as caramel? If the new Mars bar has caramel but the original didn't - then what the hell were we eating before?

Wouldn't the advertisement be better off describing the new Mars bar as "exactly like the original - but with the word caramel now listed on the wrapper" ??

See, now people aren't going to eat the original for fear of the unknown substance AND we sure as hell aren't going to try the NEW-oh-so-great Mars Caramel for the same reason.

What's next? The new Chocolate-Covered Mars bar?
