OK, I’m glad I’m not the only one that had the same thought when I first saw the commercial yesterday. Ew. Reminded me of Mr. Hankey, The Christmas Poo, except nastier because Mr. Hankey just wanted to help me out, not fill me up.
I think I’ll pass on the “fudgems,” thanks.

Nice to know I’m not alone in thinking Fudgem was a Cubic Mr. Hankey.

I’m still a bit perplexed as to how fudge is a logical addition to pizza…

Priceless. You just can’t buy marketing schpeels like that anymore. Good to see Dominoes got themselves some before it ran out completely.

That commercial makes me laugh just about every time. His little legs rock.

The fact that we are talking about it means it has already worked.

These were recently released down here in Oz, but Dominoes didn’t bother making a mascot. They just called them Chocolate Fudge Brownies, advertised them dripping in chocolate sauce, and avoided as much connection with feces as possible. lol
