Just an old sweetie...

The Courier & Advertiser (Dundee Edition) - - COMMENT -

AFife man is pay­ing a small for­tune to bring a vin­tage Mars Bar to his home after buy­ing it on­line.

Why any­one would want such an aged piece of food is, for the time be­ing, a mys­tery.

It may be for a col­lec­tion, an art in­stal­la­tion or just for the joy of eat­ing a near quar­ter-cen­tury-old choco­late bar. The fact he seem­ingly paid for the relic also tells a story. In to­day’s in­creas­ingly-dis­pos­able so­ci­ety, noth­ing – even an age­ing bar of choco­late – is truly worth­less.

There was cer­tainly a sweet taste to savour for this seller.
