Over Christmas no-one in my family even bothered opening the Thornton's selection box because we knew they'd be too sweet and we wouldn't enjoy them. I think they are definitely still in trouble though as a company because they only ever seem to have huge selection boxes on half price.

My Lindt gold reindeer was gone by boxing day, though.

Lindt do Ball shaped Chocolates with sweet Caramel stuff in the middle. They are amazing, you can actually taste how bad they are for you. Sugar and glorious Fat. I have no idea of the Calorie content of even just one of those but it must be horrendous. I had a box last Christmas and ate them until I felt poorly.

Sarah- I'll keep you in mind when my birthday comes around (in March).

We had a bar of Marmite chocolate at Christmas last year, finally got round to throwing it away at the beginning of November (after unsuccessfully trying to give it to some Trick or Treaters on Halloween)

Xine - yuck!!!
We tend to eat the decent chocolate first and and slowly munch through the rest. I don't do anything coffee or alcoholic. Oh, and chocolate for special diets is generally disgusting

After Eight mints do not last long at all but are quite sickly after a box worth.

It was horrendous. Imagine melting up a perfectly nice bar of chocolate and then stirring an OXO cube into it  The Marmite crackers are a bit yuck too, far too concentrated and salty taste.

I do like the Marmite cheese though, and the rice cakes are luvverly

The words "Marmite" and "Chocolate" together also do not compute!

Lindt is my fave, doesn't last five minutes. Hotel Chocolat is pretty lush too - I tend to get 3 different types (they're always on offer) and put one of each in a little dish. Stops me scoffing the lot that way

How did Thorntons manage to lose the plot.  When I was younger I am sure I thought of them as a posh choccie - these days they are the equivalent of cadburys only not so tasty.  In fact I think I perfect cadburys (although that might just be because I love the purple wrappers).

Caramel for me is #1 followed by anything nougat. Pralines and the toffees are always the last to go.

I brought in a box of celebration to work over christmas and at the end everyone left the milky ways behind

You can make crispy cakes with milky ways and mars bars. Yum, yum, yum!

Cadburys definately has to be the best?

I knew someone who took Cadbury's chocolate with him to relatives in the U.S.A because they loved it. He also took Walker's crisps with him for them. He used to hide it in his luggage like a Columbian drugs smuggler as he was worried about breaking some sort of customs law!!

Thorntons, the same gooey crap with the same chocolate coating and just a different swirl to make it look different, after the second one, I'm totally fed up with them

Yeah my amercian relatives go to a special shop to get their cadbury's fix  - costs about 5 times the price here.

17/01/2013 at 17:20

It costs less in the U.S?!!

17/01/2013 at 17:26

No - it cost 5 times in the US compared to the price we pay in the UK.  Guess I needed to expand that last sentance to avoid ambiguity

Chocolate always tasted different when I lived in Oz, apparently (although I could be talking bollocks) it has a higher melting point because of the climate and that's what affects the taste.

The best chocolate is Montezuma's 'Milk Chocolate: The Dark Side' with 54% cocoa.

I don't like After Eights, but I quite like the game where you have to put one on your forehead and then get it into your mouth using only your facial muscles.

Montezuma's is fab! And they do chocolate my little boy can gave - in a 2kg bag

Toffees get left in our house, tried the marmite chocolate - yuck.
My preference is any plain dark chocolate, not keen on flavours added. Thanks for the link to Montezuma's, there is one fairly close by, so may just call in to the shop in the next month or two, just to sample you understand.
