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

Galaxy chocolate AND cookies?!? You’d think that if you combine two of my favourite things, Galaxy chocolate AND cookies, you’d end up with a bar of chocolate that I like twice as much. Unfortunately, the addition of tiny pieces of crunchy cookie-flavoured biscuit adds nothing; if anything, they spoil a perfectly good bar of Galaxy. […]

Another of my childhood memories successfully eaten! When I was young, the Animal Bar was a great treat. I think my parents bought me these because it was cheaper than a Dairy Milk. It was more fun too, because each bar had some random animals on it. In the past I used to rub the […]

Cadbury Buttons – Compulsory food for the under 5s. Cadbury Buttons have been around for years. I remember eating them when I was a youngster, over 30 years ago. It only occurred to me recently that they are just splats of melted Dairy Milk chocolate. I know this seems blatantly obvious to an onlooker but […]

A normal shaped Aero, but dark. Aero is usually ok, and this is ok too. But it is just more of the same. More of the old Aero tried and tested formula of bubbly chocolate in a chocolate covering. Out of all the Aeros, my favourite is Aero Orange. Next on the favourite list is […]

Its a spooky hollow pumpkin! I’m assuming this is called a Smarties Pumpkin; although it is obviously shaped like a pumpkin, it doesn’t say pumpkin anywhere on the description. (Like Green Aero, which doesn’t actually say “mint” on it.) Inside the wrapper, you’ll be pleased to learn that the chocolate is ALSO embossed in a […]

Galaxy chocolate AND a Galaxy Caramel… COMBINED?!? Count me in! The Galaxy Gift For You (yes, it really is called that,) is a comparatively big square of chocolate, shaped like a present. I noticed that the image on the packaging shows the chocolate bar the wrong way up. The loops on the bow are facing […]

It’s like a Kinder but with no toy. This isn’t a normal Eat The Treat item as it isn’t available as a single item in a shop. However I decided to include it as a special item, because it was presented to me by my work colleague, Ashleigh. It is a great snack, but so […]

Cadburys does great chocolate. The Twirl is a gorgeous mix of Cadburys milk chocolate and, well, air. It really is just airated milk chocolate, like a flake in a coat in effect. I do also like chocolate where you get two bars; it always feels as though you get more for your money and in […]

A feast-full of peanuts, caramel and raisins. The Picnic chocolate bat contains nuts, raisins and caramel. These are not items usually associated with traditional outdoor picnics which, I suppose, is a good thing. If the Picnic bar contained actual picnic items, your chocolate bar would be crammed full of bread, salad and cheese. Although I’m […]

It’s a wiggly chocolatey world of fun. The Curly Wurly is a childhood favourite of mine. When I was young, they were 10p and huge. The chocolate strands, (were they the “Curly” part or the “Wurly” part? I never was sure,) used to be quite random. You would get sections that were a little sparse […]

Chunky AND tasty. I always assume Caramel things will have runny caramel in them because, to me, caramel should be a liquid. But the Chunky Kit Kat Caramel is another of those bars that defys (my) logic. It tastes VERY nice and VERY caramelly, but it is a solid caramel with not a hint of […]

My eggy nemesis returns for round 2. I reviewed a Creme Egg a few months back. I didn’t like it because it attacked me. I haven’t liked Creme Eggs since, in my youth, I ate 3 in quick succession and was sick. Not just sick, but SICK. Sick on such a grand scale that the […]

Aero Green, in spherical form. FINALLY, the Aero team have seem the error of their ways and added the word “Mint” to the Aero Green packaging. (In case you are not familiar with this, the green Aeros don’t actually say “Mint” on them, but people just refer to them as mint because you associate green […]

It’s just Dairy Milk chocolate… They are very nice! You get quite a few in a pack, but I didn’t look to see if you get the equivalent weight as a Dairy Milk bar. I hope you do. It’d be a bit of a con if it cost the same but weighed less, just because […]

Ooooosh! This is great! I wasn’t a fan of the original Mars bar, unless it was sliced up into bite-sized pieces. But this, THIS is a whole new experience that I genuinely like! It is so chocolately, it can be excused for having no “crunch” to it. It isn’t just chocolate, it is TRIPLE CHOCOLATE! […]

Maltesers are like little bubbles of cruchyness. Whenever I take a photo of the treat I’m eating, I always follow a few rules. Firstly, the photo has to show the treat open in my hand. Secondly, the photo has to be taken at an artistic, slightly tilted angle. Finally, the treat has to be slightly […]

Mars’s signature bar. I’m not keen on Mars bars. Well, not in their default “chocolate bar” state. They are too similar to Milky Ways, another chocolate bar I don’t particularly like. I like chocolate and I like caramel, so technically I like 66% of the ingredients, but I prefer bars that have some form of […]

Small, insignificant rolls of nothing. Imagine spending some money on a bar of chocolate, hoping it will fill that midmorning gap, but being left hungry as if you hadn’t eaten anything. That is the disappointing way that Milky Way Ameo left me. I’m still hungry, and 40p worse off! I’m sure all the posh ingredients […]
