Disadvantages: Easy to make yourself feel sick!
Ok.. I am a chocoaholic and here are my top 10! (updated for 2013!)
1: Thornton's Viennese Truffles
My absolute favourite. These are a milk chocolate truffle with a light whipped vanilla centre inside a chocolate shell with a dusting of sugar on the outside. They are soft in the centre and really need to be savoured for the full truffle experience. Very recommended.
Occasionally, if I see a box of Maltesers on offer, I will buy a box to keep in the fridge. For me, these are the perfect snacking chocolate (as you can eat as many or as few as you like once the box is open).
3: Animal Bars
These remind me of when I was younger. I love how they have characters on them and still have a little puzzle inside the wrapper. The chocolate is made by Nestle, so it has a different taste to Cadburys or Mars chocolate- another reason I like to buy Animal Bars once in a while.
4: Creme Eggs
Seasonal favourites-- These used to only be on sale between December and April but now it is quite easy to locate a creme egg if you really fancy eating one "off season'. I prefer the normal sized creme eggs to the smaller creme egg mini's as there is more fondant- to - chocolate in the standard creme eggs.
5: Milka Happy Cows Alpine Bars
This is a Milka Chocolate bar that is alpine milk chocolate with patches of white chocolate on the top to give the bar a cow print look. The squares are larger than on the standard Milka bars- but this usually means it is too easy to eat a whole bar in one sitting.
6: Milka normal milk chocolate bars
Milka Alpine chocolate is just lush. I love how it has that Swiss/ Continental chocolate taste (ie no Vegetable oil- and lots of cocoa butter used to make it instead).
7: Galaxy Ripple
An old favourite. Mars' equivalent of Cadbury's dipped flake. I prefer a Galaxy Ripple to a flake bar nowadays, but find the ever increasing chocolate prices a slight put off as one Ripple can set you back 79p in a corner shop!
8: Malteser Teasers from Celebrations
These are only in Celebrations- it is an oval shaped sweet and inside it are small ovals of honeycomb- this is a different experience to an actual Malteser but you still get the malty taste sensation.
9: Galaxy Truffles from Celebrations
These used to be sold as an easter treat in a creme egg sized egg which had two halves. Unfortunately Mars have taken this off sale as a product you can buy in its own right- this used to be ok as the Galaxy truffles were included in the Celebrations tubs for a while. Alas, these have now been replaced by Twix.
10: Galaxy Caramel
I used to moan that Galaxy Caramel could not be bought in large bars or multipacks, then Mars brought out the large bars of Galaxy chocolate with Caramel in it and, yes, I went a bit crazy as our local Co-op had it on offer at £1 a bar and have now sickened myself. So I have learned to be careful what I wish for in future!!
Summary: Just my top 10 !
