Wrong! But that is of course the answer I hoped you would give (as it's the answer I and most of the other entrants gave in a recent pub quiz).

Hazelnuts are of course the best nuts to accompany chocolate, so that's why they'd be the obvious choice.

So I will guess the next best nut for chocolate - almonds?

It's something musical, but I can't remember what. I remember it as Every Green Bus Drives Fast....ah! was it the lines on a musical thing...can't remember the name. The five lines on which musical notes are written?

Yes, that's it, isn't it ono? With the 'spaces' being F-A-C-E?

Yes indeed, they are the notes that the lines cross through on the stave, in the treble clef. The notes in the spaces conveniently form the word FACE.

I used to know one for the bass clef too but I can't remember what it was. I'm sure it wasn't one of the boring ones that changes the treble clef one around like 'Every Good Boy Deserves Fun Always'. I had an odd feeling it involved Father Christmas but that makes no sense to me now.
