Advantages: good chocolates, perfect for sharing
Disadvantages: truffle has been taken out
Celebration sweets used to be one of the best boxes in the market. They used to contain bounty, mars, milky way, galaxy, galaxy caramel, snickers, malteser and truffle. In recent months, Mars have decided to swap the truffle sweet with a twix. These are just not the same and it has not cheapened the whole selection of chocolates. The truffle was the best one in the box, the one that tasted like a proper quality chocolate and it has now been replaced with a cheap tasting biscuit sweet.
Since this decision, I now do not feel like celebrating if I get given these sweets whereas before, I would be really pleased with a present of these!
Celebrations used to be my first choice if I had to choose a box or tin of sweets but now I would always choose something else over these as I feel they are just not what they used to be.
When Mars decided to take out the topic sweet, that was a good decision as they were always the ones that were left at the end but taking out the truffle was a really bad decision in my opinion.
The chocolates in this selection are fine to put out when people come round or at a special occasion. They are still perfect to put out at a party or for Christmas. They can come in handy tins and/ or plastic boxes at Christmas time to save packaging and money!
I recommend these chocolates for people who want to put something out for when people come round. The wrappers are brightly coloured so they look attractive when they are in a bowl out on the table. The only problem is that when all the best sweets have gone, the colours in the bowl seem to dull a bit. They do still look good but just not as good. The malteser sweets are in a red wrapper so they stand out the most, then it is the milky way as they are in a blue wrapper. Now, with the twix in the selection, this wrapper also helps the collection stand out. The snickers and galaxy sweets have fairly dull colour wrappers so do not stand out as much.
It is £4.00 for a 420g box of celebrations in Tesco and sometimes they are on offer, 2 boxes for £6.00.
Summary: they shouldn't have taken our truffle but still good for sharing
