Advantages: A selection of chocolates in one bag.
Disadvantages: They chasnged the peanut ones for raisins.
Here I go again talking about food, the particular food this time being Mars Revels. Revels come in an orange and brown striped bag and contain a selection of different centered chocolates. The flavours included are orange fondant cream, coffee fondant cream, malteser, raisin, chewy toffee and a chocolate disc. The raisin one is my least favourite and I used to much prefer it when it used to be peanut ones rather than the raisin. Most people tend to dislike the coffee one but it is actually one of my favourites. If you are going to get real pleasure from a bag of revel`s it has to be a big bag because the average 35g bag can be very disappointing as you often only get one of your favourites and lots of the also ran's.
I often search through a bag trying to identify my favourites but also sometimes just eat them as they come. When I was young I used to prefer the plain chocolate discs, these are like a minstrel chocolate but without the crispy shell. I used to eat all the others first and keep all the chocolate discs to the end (those days are behind me now though. A 35g bag of revels contains 168 calories 23.8g of carbohydrate and 7.3g of fat so they are a very fattening treat. The small 35g bag is usually priced between 40 and 45p but as I said earlier better to go with the bigger bags. I usually buy the 175g share size bag which comes with a sticky rectangular label to re-seal should you not finish them in one sitting (I usually do though) and it usually contains a very even selection of the various flavours. These particular bag`s vary in price quite dramatically I have seen them as low as £1.29 but as high as £1.89 with the norm being around £1.60 these bags contain between 70 and 80 chocolates so are pretty decent value for money in my opinion.
Summary: Ditch the raisins and this could be the perfect chocolate treat.
