This is an apt one for the forum, nice set of tools for the car. Seems such a strange idea now, why make chocolate tools? But nobody questioned it back then, we just enjoyed them.

A lot of cheap Chinese companies just take these and chrome plate them then sell them off as quality tools!

If I'm honest I'm struggling to recall these :headscratch: That doesn't mean I didn't eat them at some point :D

Most chocolate is still good :cool:
Don't you even dare think about opening your sunroof :twak:

Ooh I can taste them now, solid chocolate, our local corner shop used to sell them, like the tools though it's also sadly long gone.
