[George]Harrison wrote the song as a tribute to his friend Eric Clapton's chocolate addiction, and indeed he derived the title and many of the lyrics from a box of Mackintosh's Good News chocolates. Supposedly all of the confectionery names used in the song are authentic, except cherry cream and coconut fudge. The chorus ("But you'll have to have them all pulled out after the savoy truffle") is a reference to the deterioration of one's teeth after eating too many sweets.
Anyway, I also mistakenly thought George was singing "Green tangerine . . ." and that inspired me to buy this dress at the Molly Mutt thrift. Doh. But I really like the emerald color and the flowy shape, so there's that.
The dress is by CAbi, and it's easy to wash and dry, and style. It's really huge on me, so I've been belting it. I've also worn it as a blouse under a full skirt. It's now officially my Green Tangerine dress, and apologies to George.
