Mars Revels - OK if you like all 6
Member Name: Carrington
Advantages: You get a variety of sweets
Disadvantages: It seems that no one likes all 6 sweets
Mars Revels are a novel product. There are 6 different chocolate coated treats inside: coffee, orange, chocolate, raisin, caramel and maltesers. I really like them all except the maltesers but I have detailed my hate for thes in a seperate review for maltesers.
The coffee and orange chocolates are soft and very sweet, perhaps too sweet. I do enjoy them though but if they were sold as confectionary in their own right I can't imagine they would be too popular due to being so sickly.
The caramel is quite nice but I do find it slightly brittle and hard. It has a rich, intense flavour and the taste reminds me of a chocolate eclair.
The disc shaped, milk chocolates are just plain milk chocolate but I have to say they are my favourite Revel. I really like the taste of this chocolate and these are very tasty.
The milk chocolate raisins are exactly that. The milk chocolate compliments the dried fruit and they are a real treat.
Overall, I like the idea of having a mix of different sweets but I don't think that all the different sweets fit together very well. They got rid of the chocolate peanuts which happened to be my favourite so I probably won't buy these in the near future.
They are OK though but I haven't ever met anyone who likes all 6 sweets!
Summary: OK but very sickly - Not my favourite confectionary
