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!!!

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?

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!

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

Aw man that Galaxy Truffle was incredible!

This is my ranking:

1) Malteasers
2) Galaxy Caramel
3) Galaxy
4) Bounty
5) Mars
6) Snickers
7) Twix
8) Milky Way

In my family I usually end up with all the Bountys though as nobody else likes them

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