Advantages: Taste and Variety.
Disadvantages: Hard to find your favourite.
Revels are very good as they contain a number of old favourites all in one bag, satisfying all of your taste buds.
A bag of revels is about the same as a normal chocolate bar but as they contain more pieces they tend to take longer to eat, making them seem better value for money. However, they aren't as filling so you will always feel hungry afterwards, making them seem like they are a bad deal.
The packaging is very eye catching but is also easy to open so you won't spend hours trying to get to the chocolate inside.
The packs contain lots of different chocolates including:
Raisins covered in milk chocolate: Tasty and very strong but the chocolate layer is very thin so it is more of a raisin.
Toffee: The toffee is very hard, making it hard to eat. It doesn't taste of much and is very disappointing, as they aren't creamy and take along time to eat as they need a lot of chewing.
Chocolate Disc: Very nice and creamy that melt in your mouth.
Maltesers: Very nice, but can be quite crunchy at times.
Orange: This is very nice but the fondant is very sweet and sometimes overpowers the chocolate. Again, the chocolate is disappointing as it is very thin.
Coffee: Very strong tasting and it overpowers the thin layer of chocolate.
Inside, you get about 15 random sweets, it is very hard to discover which one is which, so it means that you could get stuck with a couple that you don't like while searching for your favourites. However, you seem to get more of the Maltesers, and not much of any of the other sweets whcih ruins the experience.
The smell is very nice but isn't too overpowering, it makes you want to pop them all into your mouth, where they belong.
Overall, a good bag of sweets with lots of variety but it is very hard to find out which sweet is which, so you will get stuck with ones that you don't like. They are better for people on a diet as they only have 168 calories but also last along time.
Summary: A great bag full of variety.
