What have you had so far?
Its chocolate. Its tasty. Stop being boring everyone. Embrace it.
Wasn't that festive really
try shoot for something icier like 'mint cake'.
because it's not christmas....
then again.... if you count Terry's Chocolate oranges
1 Chocolate Orange
Please update the thread when you've had more.
it was in the reduced section of Sainsburys, it only cost me 55p
I got a massive box of liquorice allsorts from the reduced section the other day for £1.34. The box was tattered but it doesn't matter.
(Didn't mean to this that)
...back in June. I miss living with the editor of sweets.
I love balls.
Some stuff didn't have the proper packaging because it was like soooooo ahead of time and stuff.
I can't believe you left that house voluntarily.
now I live with the editor of sweets, and we have Mint Aero Christmas trees yay :D
God bless us every one!
All the best things come out again.
I urge you to try Cadbury Snowbites.
where can i get them (tonight)?
please describe them to me.
and its like a ball of hard cadbury chocolate and then like a shell like minstrels....BUT there is a white sugarry sweet dust on them. They're nice. You'll go right through the bag in about 10 mintes.
i'm nearly sold. let me just make sure, the chocolate is purely of the dairy milk variety right? they havent tried to mess with it in any way?
i'm also unsure about the hard shell.
like if you peeled the shell off, could be sucking on a dairy milk ball. Its like those tasters but the shell is a hard shell and it has sugar dusting on it. Its buff and they're like 99p a big bag at the moment (they ramp them up to £1.99 when it gets closer to crimbo...Thats right. Crimbo)
You had these before. At your flat. When you had people over? We all ate them...
I did say yours.
And those cadbury heads you made me buy.
I bought some more at Halloween. I pretended they were for the children. They massively weren't.
They were so nice!
i thought those were halloween chocs?
the ones not in the foil weren't halloween ones.
You ate loads. You fuck.
this isnt so bad, as it means i get to eat them for the first time all over again. exciting.
They didn't look very nice. Too white.
is it made out of chocolate? if yes, consume.
except all too often that sort of thing is made from (yuk) Kinnerton, not chocolate. Sounds like in this case it was Dairy Milk but little balls like that often aren't.
It wasn't Halloween, meths! That was not a costume i had on. that was my 'going out dancing' frock.
oh actually, on sdecond thoughts, I think these wee balls may ahve been halloween branded. Hmm. Imposter chocolates.
The caramel ones were Halloween
The white powdery ones were Christmas. I remember because I had an argument with Me re: eating Christmas Chocolate in October.
We did have an argument over this and I was totally right. Chocolate is chocolate at the end of the day regardless of its packaging.
I look forward to being excited in November about this. You're just lucky it was your Birthday or we wouldn't have even been in the Christmas aisle.
I'm ban requesting everone in this thread apart from me
These are good.
I want chocolate.
IT'S NOT FRIDAY MEOWINGTON, NOR IS IT DECEMBER
people are prattling on about festivals next summer on here so a christmas thread is perfectly acceptable
There is already a thread on the music board about what festivals people are attending next summer.
not chocolate consumption.
I've got a ticket, I've got a chalet, who's playing? I don't know but I got an early bird ticket. It's nonsense
but I plan my chocolate consumption.
I am craving mince pies something awful. I might just buy some anyway even though it's ridiculous early to be getting all jolly about such stuff.
Cracking. The local Co Op has had them in for a few weeks now. 2 for 1. Couldn't resist. Probably last years stock though.
Quite chunky, quite tasty.
Also I had a Galaxy present...its like a square of chocolate and half is galaxy caramel chocolate and the other is normal chocolate. Its good.
I need to know
whats their RRP?
i made it last longer as it had a bigger surface area but the tree was gone in just a few bites.
you are in for a treat
some celebrations were half price the other day in sainsburys. they were still 5 quid tho, so i didnt get them.
where we can post to alert other DiSers about bargain chocolate in their locality.
much like recommended albums of 2011 but recommended chocolate of xmas 2011. We can recommend stuff and rate stuff and we'd be much better than those low life music board posters.
did anyone try a SCREAM egg at Halloween? (like a creme egg but with green goo in the yolky bit instead of yellow.) I couldn't bring myself to do it but I'm annoyed at myself now for missing my chance.
it tasted like a creme egg, you missed out on nothing
This is sad news..
No green bit in mine like Balonz reported at the time.
Maybe a slight tinge but no more.
There's still a billion of them in our local Spar.
Lovely stuff. Only had Ferrero Rocher so far on the christmas front. I did not feel like the ambassador was spoiling me.
I wasn't blown over by them.
Galaxy Chocolate Santa Balls
Cadbury's Reindeer Jizz Surprise
Nestle Only Fools And Horses re-run special bar
Hershey's Mr Hanky The Christmas Poo (think they just put a different wrapper on)
Fucking love christmas chocolate me
I think I have had one of these before but it was white chocolate and it had melted. Is that right?
but it was slightly salty too.
I quite liked that about it though.
they wern't festive, but fuck it.
I like the reeces peanut butter cups
I hate you all.
Used to have my step-mum running these in for me.
See also - the cadbury equivilent.
Which ones better? do celebrations still have them awesome galaxy truffles?
They got rid of them.
Twix, Milkyway, Galaxy, Galaxy Carmel, Mars, Snickers, Malteasers (although there were only a few in my last box), errrrr think thats about it.
Or Mars. Mars bars are the worst.
What are we getting excited about here? The loss of the truffle?
WELL. Let me tell you something. I DIDN'T EVEN LIKE IT.
utter, utter madness.
Why did no one tell me it was that easy?!!
RIP our friendship
I've never had one of those, and don't really like twix (it's never your first choice, is it?) but mini twix sounds amazing
Or Galaxy Caramel...maybe.
I meant they're better YOU SHITBIN.
Did one of you say you were the minister of chocolate? Make some calls.
This would be my perfect box of novelty miniature chocolates.
Hang on, I need to consult the full list to compile my dream box.
you can have all of mine.
its up there with Twirls and Starbars.
its primarily honeycomb. i dont even like honeycomb.
I like crunchies. Send them my way.
you heard me.
Cannot believe you gave me one. Outrageous.
Give me some credit. Christ.
the crunchie on the other hand...
I love a crunchie. it's good dipped into hot sugary tea.
Did I tell you I probably need to get root canal done soon?
I thought we were gonna be the chololate pals....then it all equated to a wet fart with this statement. For shame.
Would rather have something savoury.
tho i went here the other day and the selection of chocolate was amazing:
lots it going to be bought for christmas methinks...
I dunno if I could justify spending £40 on advent calendars though (one for me and one for bf)
image hanging that on your front door!
and I like what I see.
(missing out the otffee one obviously) in the time it has taken this thread to unfold. and I think I'm going ot be sick.
The Lidl knock-off version, in case you were wondering
We got given two tins of celebrations and a box of thorntons chocolates.
I had 15 celebrations before 10am
But still can't eat!
When I feel better I'm going to try and put on all the weight I've lost in one day.
a popping candy chocolate orange and a big toblerone.
but I think I'm going to make some chocolate and pistachio truffles later, and eat them all
