to think that Cadbury's Heroes are crap?

Especially when compared to their fabulous Celebrations competitors.

OH and I received several boxes of chocolates (all Heroes) for Christmas and whilst I am never ungrateful for chocolate I was disappointed to find that they've gone right down hill.

Eclairs (boring)
Creme egg Twists (bleurgh!)
Fudge (bleurgh!)
Dairy Milk (Good)
Caramel Dairy Milk (Good)
Twirl (Same as Dairy Milk)

YY - never been a fan of Heroes of Celebrations tbh - but DP loves them, so I don't have to bother eating them

Over wrapped over priced shite.

Heroes rock and Celebrations suck monkey balls.

All the 'big tin' selections are full of the most boring, cheap chocs. Definitely a case of quantity over quality.

YABU. Heroes are the best box of chocolate.

Please post them to me.

YANBU Quality Street; and they are!

Op, you are correct - Heroes are rubbish, Celebrations are fab

Jins Wed 02-Jan-13 13:10:02

Heroes have always been horrible. It's because they are Cadburys

nickelbabylyinginamanger Wed 02-Jan-13 13:10:27

I love them.

so nur.

nickelbabylyinginamanger Wed 02-Jan-13 13:11:03

Kins - that's exactly the reason i love them - Cadbury's is great (and am soooooooo glad Kraft didn't change the recipe!)

They no longer include Bourneville chocolate, and for that they reside on my shit list.

BrianCoxandTheTempleofDOOM Wed 02-Jan-13 13:18:25

YABU OP shock

Celebrations are the work of the devil (with the exception of Malteasers) and Heroes are the bestest.


nickelbabylyinginamanger Wed 02-Jan-13 13:19:49

Enjoy - that's what puts them on my favourites list.
just buy a bar of bourneville!

AKissIsNotAContract Wed 02-Jan-13 13:21:41

Heroes, celebrations, roses and quality street are all shit.

noblegiraffe Wed 02-Jan-13 13:23:24

They took the truffles out of Celebrations and they are now not worth buying.

Jins Wed 02-Jan-13 13:23:40

Kraft didn't change the recipe????

The soya is newish. I'm pretty sure that's what makes them taste vile. Although I have never been a cadburys fan. Always tasted cheap to me

BunFagFreddie Wed 02-Jan-13 13:25:22

Too many mars's, milky ways and twixes in celebrations. angry

They are still better than Heroes though.

blonderthanred Wed 02-Jan-13 13:29:55

I was disappointed to discover they no longer contain mini Time Outs.

Agree Fudge boring and Eclairs horrible and aghast to discover DH likes these. I thought I knew him.

nickelbabylyinginamanger Wed 02-Jan-13 13:32:02

I didn't think they did.

i'm sure they've used soya for a while.

pigletmania Wed 02-Jan-13 13:56:18

Yabvvvvu Heros all the way, Celebrations yuck

WhySoSirius Wed 02-Jan-13 14:38:16

True - Celebrations have gone downhill since they took at the truffles. And yes, too many Mars Bars (nobody prefers the Mars Bars!) but still better than Heroes

TalkShowsOnMute Wed 02-Jan-13 16:15:00


Same as the OP, I only like 50% of the contents of Heroes now. I used to love it when they previously had; 'nuts about caramel', dairy Whole Nut, Crunchie, Flake (did they have Flakes?) and Bourneville.

I wasn't fussed when they got rid of the Dreams though (bleurgh!).

GregBishopsBottomBitch Wed 02-Jan-13 16:20:22

I hate Celebrations, not enough malteasers and too many mars bars, ugh.
