Zottor, Mitzi Blue: Milk chocolate & pork crackling nougat - 2

J's comment > what a rip off (I paid for this one). This chocolate bar had a small centre of the pork crackling and the rest was just plain milk chocolate. Don't know if it's just me, but the packaging and advertising of this bar screamed 'bacon bits everywhere in this chocolate bar - buy me!'. I believe this is called 'false advertising'.
