Eat The Treat
Attempting to eat one of each kind of treat…

I love Twix! I hate Peanut Butter! Twix, for me, is the perfect chocolate bar. Just the right amount of biscuit, caramel and chocolate and just the right size. I love them. It already got a 10 out of 10 on Eat The Treat, the UKs leading chocolate review site*, so I don’t understand why […]

Everyone loves Magical Trev….. er…. The Magical Milk from Lindt is a baton of goodness. I found this hiding in my local cheap shop, a shop I have described in an earlier post. They sell things that are either imported or near the end of their shelf life. This had been imported, but had the […]

Two fingers of de-lishness! Years ago there was Cadburys Caramel. It was a six segment bar of chocolate, produced by Cadburys and advertised by a rabbit. Each section contained a caramel filling. The people who make Galaxy, (that would be the people at Mars,) obviously wanted a piece of the caramel action and had to […]

Its big and its American. It can only be the Hersheys bar! This was a gift from a friend who goes by the name of GiddySausage on Twitter. I do know him in real life too, I don’t just accept chocolate from random strangers*. (*actually, I do.) Here in the UK, chocolate bars are quite […]

Olympic themed Dairy Milk Chocolate? The idea behind the Dairy Milk Postcard is that you can buy it and show your support to the UK Olympic and UK Paralympic teams. I opened the box and was greeted by….. a freepost postcard! I turned it over to find out what I had to do. The postcard […]

Final day of Kit Kat Chunky week. The Kit Kat Chunky Peanut Butter is an atrocity. WHY would ANYONE want to, first of all, eat peanut butter and secondly make a bar of chocolate with it? Anyone? I opened this, knowing I despise peanut butter. It didn’t disappoint. It tasted horrible. Admittedly, the first bite […]

Day 3 of the Kit Kat Chunkys… I find orange chocolate is quite hit and miss. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I can’t stand it. I can’t face eating a Terrys Chocolate Orange, but an Aero Orange presents me no problems. But the Kit Kat Chunky Orange is very nice. As with all the Chunkies, […]

A white chocolate Kit Kat? Before I opened it, I imagined the Kit Kat Chunky White Choc to be quite sickly. White chocolate is always lovely until you combine it with other things, at which point I stop liking it. This, however, is something special. I could eat this again and again. (Not the same […]

First off, for Chunky Kit Kat Week, is the Double Choc. The Kit Kat Chunky Double Choc, (bit of a mouthful in both literal and name terms,) is just a normal chunky Kit Kat with added chocolate filling on the inside, at the top. It is very nice and the chocolate paste made a nice […]

I should really have eaten these BEFORE Christmas… Cadbury Snow Bites are a bit like Chocolate M%M’s, or Minstrels, in that they are a chocolate centre with a crispy shell. But then, in a bizarre twist, they have a coating of REAL SNOW! No, no I’m just kidding. It isn’t snow, its icing sugar, but […]

One of your 5 a day? Maybe? The Dairy Milk Fruit and Nut is a bar of wholesome Dairy Milk, with semi-healthy things in it. I like raisins, especially when they are encased in chocolate. I sort of like nuts too, but it wasn’t until doing this Eat The Treat thing that I realised I […]

The Wispa Gold! Nice, and back for good! The Wispa Gold was originally launched in 1995, but discontinued. Then it was re-launched in 2009, but discontinued in 2010. But now it is BACK! Again! Hoorah!!!! I kept my Wispa Gold in the fridge for a few days before temptation kicked in. I finally buckled and […]

Oh, its a Christmas Elf! The Magical Elves chocolate bar is a seasonal treat in the shape of an Elf. Is it just an Elf version of a Freddo, I heart you ask… No, no it is far far beret than that. This bar also contains popping candy too! Shape-wise, it is quite Elfy, I […]

The Aero Christmas Tree. Stubby, chunky and green. Aero have again omitted the word “mint” from another Aero Green treat. It is, however, quite a nice thing to look at. Here, have a ganders! It has a milk chocolate outer coating, and a minty green centre, just like a normal Aero Green, but it is […]

It’s a massive star!!! Continuing the theme of “Chocolate you can’t hold”, Cadburys have released their Wishes bar. I think it originally came out a year or two ago, but this was the first time I had bought one. It IS nice, it’s just another odd shape for a chocolate. The Cadbury Wishes has normal […]

Imagine a yummy Dairy Milk filled with Turkish Delight type goo. If you’ve always fancied getting your hands on a bar of chocolate which combines both the best AND worst elements of treaty goodness, then look no further than the Dairy Milk Turkish. I presume that Cadburys had to restrict the name to Turkish, as […]

Freddo Frog! I like the idea of eating a chocolate frog, especially when he looks like this: I’m not sure why he is holding a mushroom between his legs, and I’m not sure I want to email Cadburys to ask. But look, he is! So I decided to eat him. I took a bite of […]

Another thing I haven’t seen since the 80s! I’ve always thought that the Frys Chocolate Cream was one of those posh chocolates. It stems from a belief I had when I was young. I had seen them in shops but was never allowed to have one. So 30 years later, when I saw them in […]
