After eights
Coffee cremes
Cadburys heroes
York fruits (in bulk...)
Given up on roses and quality street, by the time I've taken out all the nut ones it's not worth bothering!

Tin of quality street (delighted that they've done a full sized tin this year rather than the silly half sized tubs)
orange and mint matchmakers
chocolate raisins.

Quality street and Celebrations for everyone to share. Ferrero Rocher just for me, and After Eights for Xmas afternoon.

DanicaJones Mon 07-Nov-16 12:51:17

Yes, the QS tin looks nice. I've got a Christmas tin that i empty sweets into so don't need it. The dc like ferrero rocher so I'll get then a little box each. Oh i forgot cherry liqueurs for me

So far for us all to share - bendicks mint chocs, lindt Lindor truffles and guylian pralines. Will get the children a selection box each as well as a choc santa for their stocking. Only just finishing the easter chocolate 🐰

A nice box from my local posh choc shop. I'd like some Hotel Chocolat Pink Champagne Truffles too. And a Lindt Teddy Bear!

DD has all the usual Christmas classics (QS tin, mint Matchmakers, Ferrero Richer, Choc Orange etc) in her 'sweets bag' which forms part of her gifts. I usually end up stealing asking her nicely for a few segments of Choc Orange or a FR or two.

For 'the house' I buy Lindor, a Hotel Chocolat sleekster and chocolate coffee beans. DH always buys me a Hotel Chocolat H box of my very own too. Mmmmm Christmas chocolate fgrin

We don't usually buy any! Tbh I'm not a fan of having bowls of stuff lying around, I hate the feeling of being so bloated from the constant eating.
We get a little pack of the christmas presents to hang on the tree, and we usually share a chocolate orange at some point. But we never bulk buy anything. <end boring, joy killing post>

We buy
Quality Street
Celebrations
Sugared Almonds
Mint Matchsticks
Turkish delight(the lemon and rose one's)and usually a mixture of any other sweets and chocolates I know my DH and our 5DC would like.

My mother is the same, dusk. Reckons Christmas is not an excuse to have rubbish in the house. She doesn't do tins of biscuits, sweets, cakes, desserts, fizzy drinks etc...
My dad, on the other hand, is a total chocoholic. If it wasn't for her he'd go crazy in the sweet aisles! I once found a suitcase of Xmas goodies under the bed in their box room...

NextInLine Wed 09-Nov-16 14:28:23

Quality street, roses and celebration tins
After eights
Terry chocolate oranges ( a few of these)
Ferrero Roche for Boxing Day (SIL's fave)
I had some lovely amaretto chocolate stick things last year which I'll have to find again.

Then the usual selection boxes/tubes of sweets/thornntons santa for the dc

I started this thread as I've been doing Slimming World since Easter, but I shall be having Christmas Week off it. Can't wait to tuck in! cakechocolate

flapjackfairy Wed 09-Nov-16 15:29:11

My children all get choc coins, choc santas and snowmen , choc orange and sugar mice in their stockings !!
They are all grown ups!

Similarly joy killing here dusk - we're a pretty healthy family and try not to overdo the sugar so it's always seemed odd to me that people bulk buy the sweet stuff over Christmas. I just don't think I'd enjoy it as much if it was constantly available (and I definitely can't trust myself).

Box of After Eights. It is mandatory. I used to buy Terry's chocolate oranges, but I've heard the flavour has nosedived >:-/
