I had to comment on this, just because it’s so perfect

OK, the pink packaging, the low calorie count, the weird sexual innuendo (it’s a finger!), the tagline (“Naughty, but not that naughty”), it even has mica in it that makes it sparkle?…it’s all very…well, you can read more about it everywhere (here at feministe, here at npr, and here on the feministing community blog) but it’s really unsettling.

This type of product concerns me because it opens my eyes to how “regular” candy bars are really “men’s” candy bars. Women need something different! Something healthier, and with more pink. Ugh!
