Newest Review: ... choc covered toffee, and chocolate covered...well, chocolate! For me they are a dream - I love all of the flavours and love anything t... more
Mix it up with Mars' Revels
Member Name: amazinglo
Advantages: A variety of flavours, low in calories
Disadvantages: Toffee to dry and hard, not very substantial
When it comes to chocolate I like a little variety...I love revels because they contain an assortment of different flavours (just like with a box of chocolates) but in a small bag with a small price tag to match.
Revels are available in most newsagents, corner shops and supermarkets and generally retail for about 45p for a small 35g packet (Tesco often have a deal for to packets for 70p), or £1.35 for a large 100g bag. The revels come in a small, distinctive plastic packet with orange, yellow and brown stripes and the large 'revels' logo.
To look at the chocolates are relatively indiscernible, but come in slightly different shapes, the milk chocolate one is the most obvious because it's much flatter than the other chocolates.
Milk chocolate: Disk shaped milk chocolate.
Coffee: A bitter-sweet coffee centre with a hard texture.
Orange: A very sweet, tangy orange centre with a hard texture.
Toffee: Very hard, rather dry toffee (best to suck on it for a while or it might break your teeth!)
Raisin: A milk chocolate covered raisin.
Malteser: You know what to expect here, guys...a regular Mars' Malteser (milk chocolate with a light honeycomb filling)
Nutritional Information (per 35g)
To be honest, one of the reasons I tend to buy these is because they're low in calories compared to most chocolates and help to curb my sweet cravings - for this reason they aren't very substantial so if you're hungry grab a snickers, instead! I enjoy all the flavours, except for the toffee (too dry and hard) .If you're not a fan of 'Roses' and 'Quality Street' coffee and orange flavours give these a miss as they orange and coffee flavours a similar sort of thing, too sweet and synthetic for some).
Summary: Perfect if you like variety.
