Feeling a little hungry the on Sunday I decided to pop to my local co op just up the road and get something to feed my hunger. I decided on these after I saw an offer for a combination of four bags from Revels, Maltesers, White Maltesers and Minstrels. This offer was four bags for £1.25 which I thought was very reasonable and works out as just over 30p per bag.
Revels are also available in a bigger bag like the others in this offer, You can get a 175g bag of Revels for £1.49 which is pretty reasonable aswell. And this bag comes with a resealable top as part of the packaging.
You can buy either size from supermarkets and most bigger newsagents and in most snack machines in places like train stations, schools and leisure centres. And you can also buy these in tubs around the size of the large bags and these are common in cinemas.
The bag is cleary laid out with each of the six different little chocolates on the front that Revel's comprise of. Chocolate Buttons, Caramel, Coffee, Orange, Raisins and Maltesers. Below is my chocolate by chocolate run down of Revels.
First we Have the Chocolate buttons, These are small saucer shaped chocolates that have a creamy milk chocolate hard coating with smooth delicious chocolate cream inside.
Next up out of the bag is the Caramel. These are of similar shape to the raisin revels. Delicious milk chocolate with a great caramel flavour that melts in the mouth. One of my favourite from these Revels.
I am not a fan of Coffee but strangely I like Coffee cake and Coffee flavoured chocolates. These Revels are little balls which have a nice milk chocolate and coffee mix. I'm sure Coffee drinkers will love them.
Fourth Up we have the Orange variety. Orange and chocolate is a difficult mix to get right and this is up there with Terry's chocolate orange as one of the only orange chocolates that work. A nice mix.
Next up we have something that You will all know the combination of crunchy malt biscuit and delicious milk chocolate that are known as Maltesers
And these add a great deal to the overall package.
And finally we have Raisin. This is one of my favourite raisin and chocolate mixes and when it's done right these are great little chocolates that many people will love.

Summary: Great revels.
