Disadvantages: er, fat...
Let?s take a quick peek at my CV? hmmm, interesting. It would appear I have two main talents. 1) I can turn my tongue upside down, and 2) I can identify a Revel before I bite into it.
The first of these is a God given gift. The second the result of hard work, determination and practice. Come with me on a magical tour of a bag of Revels and I will endeavour to give you some pointers?
I did say, ooh, just a few days ago, that my chocolate bar of choice was a Galaxy Caramel. Well, Revels are up there too, but my buying choice will be determined by one thing: do I have company? If in the presence of someone who doesn?t know me very well I will opt for the safe Caramel, otherwise welcome to the Revel Eating Rules?
First things first, find yourself a bag of these little goodies. They come in tiddly one person sized ones, to huge whopping family/melee sized ones (125g of calories and fat). All have a lovely brown/beige/yellow stripe across them. Got them? Right. Mmmm, smell good don?t they? They're all coated in thick shiny choc.
Now, everyone knows that when you have a choice you eat the ones you like least first (unless you?re sharing with someone else, then reverse the order, naturally)
In Revels that means picking out the peanuts. Don?t get me wrong, I like peanuts, though I?d prefer them honey roasted to chocolate covered. This is where my gift kicks in. No randomness for me. The peanuts are usually slightly oval, so you can find them. Eaten all those?
Move onto the boring flat discs of plain choc. Very easy. Even a complete Revel Identifier beginning could spot these babies. Quite thick galaxy choc in button shapes.
Now it gets more tricky.
Maltesers have to come out next. But pretty much everything you?re left with is round. These ones though are bigger than the rest and weigh less cos of the biscuit middle, so you can munch away on those for a bit.
This is where my success rate fails m
e. I can?t distinguish between a coffee and orange cream. Ideally the coffee ones would have gone somewhere further down the list, but you don?t want to waste the orangeies? So my method of choice here it to bite each one in half, eat the coffee ones, and leave the half remnants of orange on the edge of the table (see why I do this in private?) It's not as messy as it sounds, honest, cos these aren't goopy creams, they're quite hard and really quite strong smelling.
Now all you?re left with is a pile of half eaten orange creams, and lots of hard little balls which should be chewy caramel. And I will allow you to alternate between these until you are all out of sweets, possibly even having one of each at the same time.
Now run along with your pocket money, and buy some and see if you can do it too. If you can then leave me a message and I?ll take it off my CV. Comments would also be welcome if you want to know more about my tongue, including queries as to how I can possibly be single with such a gift.
