    If they were cost effective and useful people would buy them, is your answer.
    Once more, they are not just for ice and snow, they're for better control and braking in COLD temperatures.
    I've always driven absolute bangers and I've never had 1 accident in 15 years.

    Anecdotal sure, but I think you've got to be a bit of a shit driver if you need special stabilizers for the odd week.

    I've got to drive to London from Leeds tonight so now I've said this I look forward to ending up in a hedge on the A1.

    How many accidents on U.K. roads are caused because the temperature range of the tyres was 2 degrees out of the optimum, rather than just being shit drivers/distracted/recklessness/negligence etc

    Iím all for winter tyres in places that need them, but the U.K. generally isnít that place. Fuck changing tyres over, storing all year round, rebalancing every time etc when I can just drive a little slower when the weather dictates

    Look everyone, just put on snow tyres and install a slow cooker in your boot, Ecosse says it's good for you and who are you to disagree. And while you're at it start eating 90% chocolate too.

    I was given a 100% cocoa advent calendar at Christmas. Pretty grim to be honest

    100% cocoa really isn't great for eating as a general rule.

    I've been a Hotel Chocolat tasting club member for about 10 years and I only really tend to use that stuff for cooking with unless it's been conched for some comical amount of time.

    Thatís the one I got, Hotel Chocolat



    Just nasty in all honesty. Had to cut it with a malteser to make it edible which Iím sure isnít how they intended it to be eaten. Surely someone there realises no one really enjoys eating pure, dry, savoury cocoa

    100% is for amateurs.

    I roast and grind raw cocoa beans onto my chocolate.

    125%.
