The money-saving expert’s suggestive tweet has sent social media into a spin

Martin Lewis has divided opinion with an X-rated poll asking his followers whether they ‘suck or swallow’ pieces of chocolate.

The money-saving expert put out his customary Friday poll, asking for users to identify their sex and how they usually consume sweet snacks.

The poll has led to a number of bemused responses, Lewis says, although he confesses to having “no idea why”, adding: “I’m just asking how you eat your chocolate! :)”

At the time of writing, the majority of males say they swallow, but the majority of females say they suck.

Responding to the tweet, one person wrote “terrible wording friend”, while others said the wording sounds “very wrong and suggestive”.

Some even asked whether his account had been hacked, although some think a junior could be in trouble for posting.
