The coffee ones are horrible. Remember that Revels ad?

Would probably go for the Montelimar as i have no idea what it is.

They all sound pretty horrible in truth.

I don't know if that assortment's available to us across the pond! I could totally do a Clapton and eat 'em all (Ginger Sling aside, maybe) but they'd surely be ruinous to my health (diabetic).

Coffee Dessert for me!

What's the difference between "cream" and "crème" anyways?

''Créme'' is cream in French.

Sure, but what made them use the French spelling? Why is "Cherry Cream" good enough but not "Tangerine Cream"?

(Kinda want to add "...and marmalade skies" after that!)

Maybe to make it sound a bit more posh/sophisticated? I don´t know.

I copied and pasted the words from a lyrics site. I didn't check the actual spelling of cream/creme. Is it accurate?

I wonder which other chocolates were in a Good News box. It would be nice to think of George working out ways to squeeze them into his lyrics.

Well, he made up some of the names himself, didn't he? "Cocoanut Fudge" and maybe some others.

This is all I can find. It's a bit small, but Savoy Truffle and creme tangerine are definitely there. I think it's spelt 'montelimart' too.

@Pineapple Records, your sig corrected a misheard lyric of mine, and actually I prefer the version I misheard to the real one:

"A ginger sling with a pineapple whore" - to me that just reeks with symbolism, more so than "pineapple heart."

xposted to misheard lyrics

Half of what I say is meaningless...

I feel good in a special way, I'm in love and it's a sunny day

Hi Matt,

 

Yeah, your misheard lyric sounds more appropriate for a rock star!

A ginger sling with a pineapple heart,

a coffee dessert, yes you know it's good news...

I had no idea the song was about bonbons, I always figured George was just listing some of his favourite sweets/desserts. I have to say though: it takes a special kind of talent to write a song about food. 

What is it with George and food anyway? Apparently, he didn't eat all that much, yet he has a reputation for being obsessed with food.

The song was written about Eric Clapton's sweet tooth and a recent (at that time) trip to the dentist for extensive work. A cheeky warning to EC, was the line "You'll have to have them all pulled out after the Savoy Truffle ".

Right - my favorite term that Eric and George used was "husband-in-law".

According to Paul, love is to share -- George and Eric just took that a bit more literal than most people...a-hard-days-night-george-10
