Chocolate You Buy at Christmas Only

Ask a Question

Personally I eat a lot of chocolate all year but special ones at Christmas are liquors, Benedick's Butternuts and/ or selection,and Elizabeth Shaw mint crisps....

My dad used to get me boxes of fruit flavour creams and chocolate ginger too....

What do you all get as a special treat?

I love Quality Street, Celebrations and Heroes. We have those every Christmas without fail. 😋

in jail they gave us after eights around christmas time. I thought they'd be be gross but they were actually pretty good.

Turns out that in-prison mint isn't as bad as I expected.

It’s all about the Ferrero Rochers for the festive period - Lindt Lindor balls are also another popular one, but nothing beats the ferreros

I usually buy Lindor and truffles around Christmas. There was a special chocolate pudding I had last year where there was a mini chocolate 3D village on the top

Sarahvwomble It was from Asda, I hope it'll be there this year. There were houses made from dark chocolate, a Christmas tree in the centre that was painted golden and icing sugar was sprinkled on top to make it look like the village was snowing

My husband loves Quality Street and HAS to buy a tub probably once a week from October until December and uses the excuse “it’s Christmas!” 🤦🏻‍♀️ I don’t understand the hype with them and get bored of them very quickly..

Used to adore them as a child but my tastes and ethics different now,think it's the charm or variety and pretty shiny wrappers!

My parents always bought orange and lemon slices at Christmas time.

Nowadays, it’s usually a tin of Celebrations.

Ooh Orange and Lemon slices! My favourite. I couldn’t find them in stock last Christmas, and then saw them on sale in The Range in April! But I think the ones I saw were made in China and/or looked cheap, so I didn’t bother.

You don’t seem to see them in the shops anymore do you Johnny? I think they used to be on sale at the greengrocers, next to the obligatory net bag of mixed nuts!

Sarahvwomble Thanks, the problem I think is that these Candy Cabin Orange and Lemon slices are very likely made in China. The Parrs ones are made in China, and the Bonds of London ones are also made in China. They just don't taste the same. Like eating a poor croissant compared to a good one made with French butter.

I note that Sunvale Orange and Lemon slices are made in Poland so they might be better quality, but if anyone knows where to get the top-notch 'real thing' please share! It'll make my Christmas!

The limited edition - which was first issued in 2019 - will hit the shelves of major supermarkets including Tesco, Co-op and Sainsbury’s at the end of September, but eagle-eyed fans have already spotted it available now on the Morrisons website.

Originally making the announcement on their Instagram page, Terry’s wrote: “The most eagerly awaited comeback since Take That got together again… We think our beloved Robbie Williams would like to know – the White Chocolate Orange is BACK. Tag him to tell him. While you’re at it, treat yourself to one for a job well done. Available from the end of the month from Tesco, Co-op, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons!”
