I thought the cracknel was the same shape as the yellow one that now is "toffee finger".

No, they were shorter and wider, and wrapped in blue.

it's been a long time since I've been offered any quality street but I remember that crisp yellow centre.

The tins made them such a distinctive brand in the 70s,the victorian/edwardian captain and lady design...now it's just some photos of the sweets on the sides I believe.

What manner of madness is this? Not a single vote for the orange or strawberry creams? They should be streets ahead by now.

This is where democracy gets you. Time for a soft centre dictatorship to be established. Who's with me?

It's a madder world than I thought if strawberry creams are getting more votes than the coconut one. I also like the mint blocks, a welcome new addition. I nearly lost two teeth to a mouthful of toffee pennies today though, one has to be careful.

Fruit and chocolate should NEVER go together.

A couple of observations:

1 - I doubt that a Strawberry Cream has ever been near anything that resembled a Strawberry.

2 - What about Frank Muir's finest moment?:

It's that combination of flavours - tart/citrus, and creaminess/cocoa-iness. Not right at all.

I mean, chocolate limes? Who ever thought of such a thing? Eeurghhh!!!!

Dried fruit like that is OK.

With the utmost respect that is complete bollocks.
There does not exist a combination in confectionary better than chocolate and orange. You should give it a go.

Dark chocolate with a hint of orange is OK.

Milk chocolate filled with a citrusy cream is vile. Chocolate-covered strawberries are an abomination.
