    Would have voted truffle but the feckers removed that one a few years back

    Edited to add, I voted Malteaser

    Stop, me too. It was by far the best one. :(

    This.

    The truffle was amazing. Don't know why they got rid. Probably cheaper to make some of the others.

    The answer now is the Malteaser.

    I'd happily leave Snickers and Bounty out.

    Hmmm the truffle...

    Same order for me! Except I usually don't eat any Bounty's. Truffle would have been top of the list though!

    Going against the trend here, voted Bounty. I love coconut and am fond of a bounty anyway so thats my winner.

    For a second I thought that was either a mistake or a mess vote haha :pac:

    I really like Bounty as well and as most people despise them I usually clean up with the leftovers :D

    Bounty FTW for me!

    Galaxy and Galaxy Caramel are the first I devour and bountys are left out in the cold :D I hate coconut

    My top 4 are locked in but the bottom 4 could change whenever I get to refresh my memory with a box of celebrations. Soon I hope!

    Btw there's a new one in the quality Street. Chocolate caramel brownie I think. Pretty nice.

    I used to think you and I would get on like a house on fire Jellybear but after putting Eclair first and now Galaxy last... Well I'm just not sure anymore. There's clearly something very wrong with you! ;)

    Hahaha, love it! Although there is a bonus if we ever sit down and share a tub of sweets, we'll both be happy we don't have the same favourites!!!

    Oooh that's a very good point. I retract my earlier post! :D

    Start off with Malteasers. Always my first choice.

    Galaxy and Galaxy Caramel are in joint second.

    The rest I like but don't discriminate against except for Mars. I don't mind them but they're always the last ones left.

    My favourite chocolate of all time from the boxes you get at Christmas was a Roses sweet from the early 90s. It had a blue foil wrapper and shell like design at the ends. It was chocolate with little nuts. It's on the far left of this picture. ****ing loved those!!!

    I always find that the sweets in celebrations taste better from the fridge but very few seem to bother & just eat them at room temperature. If we get a tub of these they always go in the fridge though to get that little extra bit of chew from the mars & snickers etc. Lovely with a nice mug of tea.
    Anyone else do this?

    Nuts about Caramel until they removed it

    Galaxy Caramel
    Ye I usually put chocolate in the fridge but never think to do it with celebrations.

    It's too bulky and the fridge is usually full at Christmas anyway.

    Not a massive chocolate fan however do prefer it cold and a bit crunchy from the fridge.

    I like my chocolate to be melty- I often leave my easter eggs by the radiator! :D

    Malteasers for me too here, seems like a runaway winner already!

    So apparently here’s what an average tin of celebrations contains.
