Advantages: Variety of sweets
Disadvantages: Cheap tasting
The Revels are a a chocolate coated selection of assorted centered confectionery. Not one of the best known chocolate snack packs, but a popular one for many down the years.
These sweets are made by MARS and have been about for as long as I remember.
The line up of sweets has been altered over the years, but there remains a diverse selection of sweets in each pack.
The current selection is orange creme, coffee creme, toffee, raisins , Galaxy Counters, and Maltesers.
This year Revels have started an advertising campaign, where one flavour will be evicted from the bags to be replaced with a special limited edition flavour. Coffee flavour is the favourite to get the heave-ho.
I am of the opinion that the flavours can become mixed up between the sweets in the bag. They remain a popular item of confectionery, but appear a bit cheap and dated to me.
The standard size bag is 35g and retails for about 40 pence, but they are also available in a range of larger size bags.
Summary: A decent alternative chocolate snack
