Save the Polly Waffle

Sometimes a news item comes across ye radar screene that has little to do with the general thrust of this blog.  And such was the case today.  I learned, to my utter dismay, that an Australian chocolate bar with the delicious name of  "Polly Waffle" is about to be given the axe by the Nestle chocolate company.

Really.  How dare they?  Just in time for the holidays, and Polly gets a pink slip.  So heartless. Honestly, corporate HQ, what were you thinking?

Polly Waffle has been around for 62 years, way longer than yours truly.  Surely it's not age discrimination?  In any case, the name is so... catchy!  There is even a Facebook group to save the Polly Waffle.


Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I'm compiling my next post about the top ten things I still haven't adjusted to one year after my departure from Paris.  Stay tuned.

Looking forward to your list, as well. I have to confess that I'd never heard of that candy bar before!

As another Polly I'm glad you brought this to the world's attention!

I'm looking forward to the post with your list. Should be fun to read.

How about a list of the 10 places that you are longing to visit/re-visit on your next trip to Paris.

As interesting as the post about the Polly Waffle was, I can't wait to see your post about your top ten.

OH no! Polly waffles are just too yummy! Here from France I hadn't heard about that! I'm back in Australia soon for a holiday, so I might have to check if they're still around and if so, stock up on them. Cannot believe they'd get rid of it!

Please keep pollywaffles, they are unique in the world. Surely Nestle can sort this out with some clever marketing.
