    Congratulations to the Bounty Bar on summiting Everest without supplementary oxygen.

    I was impressed that it managed to reach the top without being eaten, but then again, eating a Bounty with an oxygen mask in place may be problematic.

    I confidently predict a whole new raft of Everest confectionary-sponsored expeditions over the next few years...

    If you want to be testing, Jon, go and resurrect the 'This is a Test Thread' thread.

    Best place for it as far as I'm concerned.

    I never could stand Bounty Bars and should they all take it upon themselves to go on a mass migration to the summit of Everest I, for one, will be cheering

    Noooooo! Bounty Bars are yummy. At least the blue ones are, don't like the red ones as much.

    I doubt they would be more than tooth extractors at 8000m...

    ... or maybe an excellent snow anchor for a slot belay

    Then again, seeing as there are two separate little bars inside the packet, maybe not

    I would have thought you would break several teeth attempting to eat a frozen Bounty bar, More Everest trash.

    We should of course also state for fairness that other chocolate bars are available in country for other further future chocolaty ascents.

    Is it still actually up there then, or not? I suppose that it is could still be and be just so frozen solid that no one can eat it really!

    Metric Kate is frequently right but is totally wrong about Bounty bars. The red ones are much nicer than the blue ones.</blockquote>
