Attempting to eat one of each kind of treat…

Halloween chocolates are plentiful this year! Earlier this month I featured 2 Halloween related chocolates. Cadbury had released the Screme Egg, and Nestle had brought out the Smarties Pumpkin. The Screme egg was a limited edition Creme Egg but with a green yolk. The Smartie Pumpkin was a hollow pumpkin shell with 20ish mini smarties […]

The Quality Street Purple Bar? Weird! This is an odd one. In Quality Street, there are many types of individual chocolates. You get orange creams, caramel squares, things with nuts in, praline triangles…. Now imagine someone thought, “I know what would be a great idea for a bar of chocolate – if we stuck loads […]

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 […]

Poppets! Poppets Chewy Toffee are little Malteser-shaped balls of chocolate, with chewy toffee inside. Traditionally on here, I usually take a photo of the product at a jaunty angle with part of the product sticking out. This was quite hard to do with Maltesers but impossible to do with Poppets. With Maltesers I managed to […]

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 […]
