We have already eaten a tin of roses blush and the kids have a selection box in their sack.

But which chocolates do you absolutely always have to have at Christmas time? I am hoping someone gets us a tub of heroes smile

After eights. Now about breakfast....

Ferrero rocher here!

After eight mints. It's not Christmas without them.

Chocolate orange!

No chocolates for me as I dislike the stuff!

But cheese, chutney, nuts and twigglets are a must have at Christmas.

Also Boxing Day must contain a turkey, cranberry and stuffing sandwich!

Quality Street, chocolate oranges, and mint matchmakers.

We always had Quality Street growing up. But we finished a box last week blush and they weren't as nice as I think they should be! So watching with interest to see what everyone else thinks too. Pretty sure my boys would choose Celebrations but I'm not a fan.

After Eights, Ferrero Rocher, Toffifee, Quality Street, liqueurs, chocolates with cherries in brandy from M&S, Elizabeth Shaw mints...

We eat a lot of crap chocolate at Christmas fgrin

Ferrero rocher and some heroes or celebrations

I've eaten the thortons snowdog snowman shapes I bought for the girls stockings... although had to make sure they taste ok and now thinking the lollipop would be better for them anyway!!!

Ferraro Rocher at home and quality street or roses at work. Always seems to be a tin on the go in the office!

MorrisZapp Sun 15-Dec-13 09:01:02

Bendicks mints

Ooh ferrero rocher. Yum. I am not a fan of celebrations. Got to have a chocolate orange obviously. And seeing as I'm pregnant I think I have the best excuse to sample all the chocolates this year!

I found some cherry brandy chocolate liqueurs in Poundland - I'm going to put them in DM's stocking. They really were redolent of Xmas past. But I'm wondering if they'll be horrid now?

Used to be quality street up until last year when it seems to have changed.

Used to get thorntons coins but local shop shut.

Now Terry's choc orange, Lindt and lindor.

We always treat ourselves at Christmas - we have a tub of celebrations or heroes to share with the kiddies and then after they're in bed we tuck into a selection box from Hotel Chocolat!!! Pure indulgence and only at Christmas!! grin

Can't believe no one has mentioned toblerone. Particularly the white one.

spottydottystripes Sun 15-Dec-13 10:20:01

As a kid, always After Eights - I haven't bought them since I started boycotting Nestlé, but I do miss them.

Still chocolate orange though - I still get a wrapped-up one from my aunty grin

Has to be Quality Street giant tin (currently selling for £3,99 in Aldi), After Eights and a little posher, Rococo because the packaging is so gorgeous. The Violet, cinnamon and rose flavours are always in my stocking.

I always make Chocolate covered dates because Thorntons no longer sell them and my Grandparents always had them.

DH has Toblerone. He makes it last weeks therefore making New Year a torture for us greedier folks. His other choice is Australian liquorice which I am not so keen on. He wants a Nigella-style liquorice box.

Anton Berg liqueurs , Costco used to sell them in a 64 piece box, we had one each ( including DCs, teens). They have stopped selling them and I am gutted.

After Eights
Matchmakers.

I went into Hotel Chocolat last week and everything always looks so beautiful and delicious, but so expensive that I never buy anything.
