I love chocolate limes!

As for Quality Street, I can tell how popular a tin of sweets is by the amount donated to the hospice. This year (although donations were down considerably), we got nothing but Quality Street. I swear people only buy them to give them away. We never get Celebrations or Heroes.

If I had to eat something from it, it would be the fudge. Reluctantly. They're just not good.

I'm a bit of a sucker for toffee, so it's the Toffee Finger, then the Toffee penny and the Purple One. In that order.

I'd rather have a kebab though.

Dark chocolate with a hint of orange is OK.

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

I used to make all sorts of stuff with chocolate, you just to use the right quantites and it all comes good. Chocolate filled with strawberry cream is a great combo. there is a Milka bar that is pretty decent, but the greek equivalent is just delightful.
Bits of lemon jelly on chocolate cakes can work too.
And let us not forget cherries.

Both Quality Street and Roses are shit. And I should know, I've eaten enough of them.

The Purple One is the only one worth having.

My all-time favourite is long-gone, no doubt for health and safety reasons. It was like a chocolate covered, non-minty Mint Cracknell, with delicate crystalised candy structure inside which, once bitten into turned into little pointy shards. Whilst it was tasty it did have to be eaten with care, as each of these shards had a reasonable propensity to lacerate the inside of your mouth, and of course the more you chewed the more of the little blighters there were. I have memories of my brother and me proudly displaying bloodied tongues and gums to the relatives at Christmas.

Happy days.

Fruit and chocolate should NEVER go together.

NEVER.


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.


Listen to Kaspar at this point.

These alone contradict you, especially the dark variety...

What is actually in this mysterious but popular purple one. I haven't had Quality Street since I was a nipper.

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



I think it was Lenin who said "trust the toffee-based Quality Street implicitly, but eliminate the tooth-rotting soft centres entirely".
So no, I won't be joining you on your quest to establish a quasi-bourgeois hegemony.
