“This chocolate just went past me at 120 mph!! I think it was a Ferrari Rocher”

"Ferrari Rocher” is a jocular combination of Ferrari (an Italian luxury sports car) and Ferrero Rocher (a chocolate and hazelnut confectionery). “On the motorway, a chocolate zoomed past. It was a Ferrari Rocher” was posted on Twitter on January 20, 2011. “A chocolate has just passed me at 100mph. It was obviously a Ferrari Rocher” was posted on Twitter on February 17, 2011.

“What do you call a chocolate going 100mph.....Ferrari-Rocher! Courtesy of Mr Tim Vine @RealTimVine” was posted on Twitter on May 14, 2012. The joke probably originated with—or at least was popularized by—English comedian Tim Vine.

The Tim Vine Chat Show Radio 4, 6.30pm Another comedic high-wire act from the wizard of the one-liner. Tim Vine, right, starts with a splattering of egg jokes: “My lawn is chickenproof. It’s impeccable”; “I can’t find my eggs; you probably mislaid them.” If such banter reduces you to a hysterical puddle, there is more, lots more: “When I was out driving I was overtaken by a chocolate at 100mph. It was Ferrari Rocher.”
