What are the chocolates that are left in your household?

Toffees are usually left to last and soft centered are the first to go.

Talking of which, had to resort to eating cooking chocolate last night as ran out of normal stuff.  

The worst chocolate i ever tasted was sex chocolate they put out for breakfast,   It had to be tried just to see how it compares to nuttela

We should set up a swap shop - cremes are thelast to go in this house.

Except for coffee cremes mmm

We still have an unopened box of After Eights.  The MIlk Tray went first followed by Dairy Milk.  Strawberry, orange and coffee creams are the last in each box.

I'll take the coconut and nougat off your hands!  

We hve some stuff from Hotel Chocolat, but it only arrived last weekend.

I don't like the soft-centred chocs, I prefer nuts (especially brazil nuts and almonds), or ginger.

Toffees are the first to go, followed by caramel, coconut, nougat or hazelnut type ones. Any soft centres tend to end up in the bin.

Someone bought us some Thornton's chocolates. They were all quite horrible. Are they the next high street name to go down the swanny?

Any chocolate we were given was "re-gifted" - we're not chocolate people...we did have some that we were left with - our son ate some of that and I chucked the rest out.

They were reportedly in trouble a couple of years ago, and closed quite a few shops.  I agree on the quality of the chocs - not very nice at all.

I've still got a chocolate mountain! I love chocolate, so everyone buys it for me. But my approach to chocolate is little and often I'll have a bit every day, but not loads and loads of it. So I've still got - two boxes of Black Magic, a large box of Thorntons (not my favourites, but I'll still eat them!), half a tub of Celebrations, half a box of Just Brazils, and about eight Terry's chocolate oranges.

In terms of which chocolates get left until last, I'll go for the soft centres first (strawberry creams!), then pralines/caramels. Hard toffees get left until last.

Any Bountys going spare, send them this way!

Orange cremes, strawberry cremes, peppermint cremes. 

All go outside, along with any other undesirables.

The magpies and squirrels love chocolate.

The combination of the words "chocolates" and "left" does not compute 

17/01/2013 at 12:44

if they are not there to start off with it makes it easier to not eat them

That's why I eat them all - so that there are none left to eat. Do you like my logic?

Those Seashell Chocolates are a bit rotten. They don't even taste like normal Chocolate. Nasty.

17/01/2013 at 13:54

I don't like chocolate, I give it away.

17/01/2013 at 13:58

It'll be hard work, but I'm willing to take any offending chocolate off your hands moomoo

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.
