    No, that's a marketing ploy.

    Go to IKEA and look for the Marabou chocolate bars, and/or the ones with hazelnuts or "daim" in them.

    Also, go to Cost Plus and get the Cloetta bars. They're chocolate covered wafers, sort of like KitKats, but a 1000 times better.

    Swedes have the chocolate down pat!

    I don't think you can go wrong with ANY Scandinavian bikini team. Or soccer team, as the World Cup showed us.

    Everybody has and knows how to use military rifles..

    Swiss have not been involved in any wars nor been invaded since about 1400.

    The Pope's bodyguards are Swiss. The Swiss Guard is considered the smallest army in the world.
