Triple Chocolate Love

It's been awhile, I know. I've been out in the wilderness, foraging. Ok, perhaps that's not true since I live in Brooklyn, but I saw a commercial tonight that couldn't be ignored.

The product itself looks delicious as hell: Triple Chocolate M&Ms, a combination of dark, milk, and white chocolate. If these photos are to be believed, then woaaaah, I might have to revert back to my bad habit of ice cream and M&Ms for dinner.

Despite the wondrous idea of a layered chocolate confection, I have a slight beef with the commercials. Sexualized talking chocolate is just weird. Yeah, they're poking fun at the genre, but I'm a tad freaked out nonetheless. Maybe I'm just prude.

Or maybe these really should turn us on... if you've had 'em, report back!

Thanks for posting this commercial.
It really bugs me because of how sexist it is. Having only one female character, and making her all about sex, is sexist. I hate the male characters lusting after her, and I hate her stilettos. The last time I checked, none of my female colleagues were wearing stilettos. I can tell that men created this. Yuck.
