similiar to minstrels, maltesers etc?

But how would you know which was which? What if you thought you were getting something nice with nuts in and it turned out to be Turkish Delight?

Have you really thought this through?

Nooooooo! They are made tastier by the luxury of being in a box and taste even better in one of those big, single layer 50s style ones.

Element of surprise? Who cares, its chocolate FFS! grin

Element of surprise? If I want excitement I'll go to Alton Towers! wink

YANBU. Best thing thorntons ever did, box chocs in bags.

but nutty ones would brush against the lush orange cream ones and taint them shock

I think its a fab idea

thorn tons bags of chocs are great

Bleurgh to Dairy Box and the Milk Tray. You can buy them how you like - I won't be hving any!!

Have you considered contacting Cadburys/Rowntrees/Nestle to request this?

At the very least they may send you some freebies for showing an interest grin

They do them in the Cadbury outlets as 'misshapes' I got a bag and then was thoroughly upset that they were about 70% Turkish delight... <sickening behaviour on behalf of Cadbury> I've had more mixed bags though and once got one that was mainly the purple ones. grin

My idea is to put slightly thicker chocolate on Maltesers, and market them to nibblers.

SoleSource Fri 02-Nov-12 20:14:40

I don't like tnem much either but is a good idea for small quantites.

Cadbury shop at the lowry do them in the miss shapes bags, they are a bit battered but yummy.

Didn't they use to make a chocolate bar which was about 6 or 8 milk tray chocolates stuck together?

Or did I dream that?

TeentheBean Fri 02-Nov-12 20:21:24

Oh yes, Tess, Frys used to do it, I've just asked my bff Google and it was Frys Five Centres

I bought some today from a Cadbury outlet shop.

£2.99 for a big bagful. I think that if they're not in a box then the calories don't count, if I'm not mistaken.

Does anyone remember a a bar of choc called 'Two and Two' or something like that? Each square had 2 fillings -like choc and orange fondant or coffee and cream etc God, I LOVED them! Wish I could have one now!

I wouldn't mind the element of surprise in a bag of chocs - I like revels!

SoleSource Fri 02-Nov-12 20:25:33

Where was the shop? CakeExpectations

TessCowDirect Fri 02-Nov-12 20:28:19

this was the one

Look at the price!

ariadneoliver Fri 02-Nov-12 20:29:32

Tess they were first made in 1947 but discontinued in 1981

TeentheBean Fri 02-Nov-12 20:31:49

I stand corrected Tess, google misled me!! There was also a Milk Tray bar as you described.

TeentheBean Fri 02-Nov-12 20:33:07

4p, 4p? What could you get for 4p now? A crisp? A coco pop?

TessCowDirect Fri 02-Nov-12 20:33:29

Thanks smile

I didn't realise the fudge bar was so old either.

i dont know if its just me but cadburys chocolate does not taste half as good as it used to.
