Revels - the best kind of lucky dip!
Member Name: abyznw
Advantages: Variety, good quality chocolate
Disadvantages: Not so great if you don't like them all
Re-living my childhood this weekend I bought myself a pack of Revels (on offer at £1 for a 100g bag at the moment at Mr Ts!)
They are a mixed bag of small chocolates that include Maltesers, chocolate coated orange fondant, choc covered raisins, chocolate covered coffee fondant, choc covered toffee, and chocolate covered...well, chocolate!
For me they are a dream - I love all of the flavours and love anything that involves chocolate, but if you are not a fan of all of them then these really aren't as fun! My boyfriend hates the coffee ones, and while the raisin / chocolate revels are easy to identify, it's often hard to tell which ones are orange, toffee or coffee! I would say one negative is that the toffee is sometimes a bit too hard, and always makes me worry I'm about to lose a tooth!!
What I think is the best thing about Revels is the variety - one mouthful is crunchy chocolate malteser, the next chewy toffee or citrus-y fondant, so you don't get bored tasting the same flavour all the time.
The new 100g bags are also really handy for taking to the cinema - the bags are soft plastic (so not loads of noisy rustling to annoy your neighbours, and it comes with a sticky pad to re-seal (...a bit redundant for me as there's never any left!)
All in all a great confectionary item, recommended to anyone who wants a bit of variety in their chocolate!
Summary: A good treat
