Life is like a packet of revels,.. you never know what you're gonna get.

Advantages: Novelty factor
Disadvantages: Some really yucky flavours!!
A really clever product, and advertising campaign to go with it. Revels is like lucky dip chocolate, you get a bag of little round chocolate balls with no indication of what flavour is in the centre. It could be solid chocolate, caramel, nut, maltester or coffee.
Really why these chocolates are so popular is novelty factor, its all the the game of what one you're going to get. Maybe Forrest Gump should have said 'Life is like a packet of Revels..'
A brave advertising campaign that shows two men having a Revel off, basically telling the world some of the flavours are horrible. A clever advert that seems to have paid off.
It's true, not everyone likes all flavours, personally I'd be happy with a malteser or a caramel but would screw my face up if I got coffee or nut. Great game for the playground, and I guess it's makes your sweets last longer, if you're a little more cautious eating them!
Summary: A sweet more popular for novelty than taste.
