Top non-apology action!

“It was a mistake to amplify this debate with thoughtless responses,” Bahlsen said in a statement on Wednesday. “I apologise for that. Nothing could be further from my mind than to downplay national socialism or its consequences.”

Her apology really takes the prize and is hard to process.

Did the Nazis use slave labour to make Choco Leibniz? Is this why I feel so guilty when I eat some?

A good biscuit. Hard to hold, mansard-like chocolate, not an entry-level biscuit, so you know if you eat it you're part of the elite. You have to rest it on your flattened palm or on your belly like an otter. A status symbol, I can hold multiple ones, a party trick, and it is whole minutes before I am smeared in chocolate.

Not for much longer, I'm hoping.  I'm hoping this little capitalist gets to find out what happens when the market doesn't love you any more.

Boycotted them for years because, although I work several jobs, I don't have money for frivolities like biscuits. 

Not that I mind, mind.  The biscuit bit on them is horrible, the dullest biscuit anyone could make, even if they were a small child and only had flour, water and sugar at their disposal.  And the chocolate bit, the palatable bit, is chocolate.   Wow. 

That's it, a shitty half-arsed biscuit topped with a small slab of unmitigated chocolate, what's not to boycott?

Which German companies operating today that were also operating during the war DON'T have links to the Nazis?

Dr Oetker has a bronze statue of a major Nazi in their headquarters. You think they'd have taken it down, but no.

They were called Choco Lebensraum back them. The German workers had Hugo Boss uniforms but the forced labour had to wear Boss Orange.

I’m going to be more ambiguous in the way I eat it as I am on the fence about this whole issue.

I'm afraid Pig Newtons and all subsidiary brands were #Cancelled with the fall of known Mr. CK. Needless to say, his statue has been removed from the lobby.

The true crime is that it's not even a fucking biscuit! It's a bit of chocolate wearing a biscuit merkin.

Typical guardian dredging up the past to be outraged about.
I don't think this robust Verena Bahlsen really cares that much,she can buy and bribe her way out of trouble with those delicious biscuits.
