I'm more of a savoury girl really but when my mum pops in with some chocolate of some sort that she doesn't want I am not going to turn it down. The other night she popped in with a small bag of Revels which I hadn't ate in ages so I snatched them and popped them in the cupboard. Last night I had a slight sweet tooth and dug out the bag of revels to tuck into.
Revels come in a standard sized bag, same as a Maltesers or Mars Planets bag. Their bag is a bit more bright and colourful though with stripes of orange brown and yellow. Revels is written along the bag in bold white writing with a few pictures of these chocolate goodies too.
Revels are a satisfying sweety chocolate snack but with a difference - the difference being that each chocolate shape has a completely different filling. Ok so you could say these are just the same as Mars Planets but you are wrong as these come with the horrid coffee flavour which you try so hard to avoid!
One bag of these contains;
Each chocolate snack is a different shape and size depending on the filling but they are crafty as Orange and Coffee are shaped in balls exactly the same so you have no choice but to sink your teeth into them to decifer what flavours what!
You will either come across a 3D Disc shaped chocolate - very similar to minstrels - but these don't have the outer crispy shell instead it is just smooth solid chocolate that you can either bite your way through or allow the smooth chocolate to melt in your mouth.
The TWO balls - they are so similar in shape there is no telling from the outside what each contains so you have to bite into them, once you bite you will either come across;
A lovely fruity orange centre with a stunning pale orange colour to look at too. It's a soft centre and just melts in your mouth along with the chocolate.
The stinky, minging, yucky coffee centre which is soft to bite into just like Orange but guess what it tastes like Coffee! Eeewww! If you like coffee then you may like these but if you detest coffee like myself these are rancid and you will quite possibly spit them out like I do - they spoil the bag, but then it adds to the excitement and fun and games of eating a bag of these.
You then have the smaller balls containing toffee, a sweet and small toffee that begins slightly hard to bite into, not so hard that it will remove teeth or braces though. Once that initial bite and chew has weakened it's strength it soon turns into a tasty sweet chewable toffee, it's just too small though, I want more!
The squidgy unusual shaped one is the raisin, bite through the outer shell of smooth chocolate and you meet a plump and juicy raisin which mixes so well with the chocolate. Yum!
Or last but not least you could come across my favourite, Maltesars. Probably the largest and more defined balls in the bag filled with that crunchy, melt in your mouth honeycomb, delicious!
I can't believe I havn't ate these in so long, they are brilliant chocolates, nothing too rich or fancy, the chocolate is tasty and has just the right sweetness without making these a sickly sweet choc and the different fillings make them unusual and less boring compared to other chocolate snacks you can buy.
