To ask why coffee revels exist? No one likes them

And the number you get in a packet is totally disproportionate to the nice tasty revels.

The same goes for the raisins, horrible little dried up pieces of should'vebeenmadeintowine, that should never ever have replaced the peanuts - but at least you can spot those from the shape and avoid them.

After a rage inducing packet that was 60% coffee AIBU to want to fill a spaceship with all the coffee revels in the world and fire it somewhere into the atmosphere?

The coffee revels are the reason I gave up buying revels.

I really like them. I'll swap you for the horrible orange ones.

I totally agree coffee Revels are an abomination.

YABU. Coffee is the best flavour, the raisins are foul though.

Coffee ones are ok, so are the raisin ones. You can launch orange into orbit for me!

Oh I love coffee revels , I think they stopped doing them for a while.
It's hard to find any coffee sweets anymore.
I with you about nasty sticky raisins however

I love the coffee ones and the orange ones and would be more than willing to take them off your hands smile

It's like playing Russian roulette.... Is it coffee or orangeshock

BarbarianMum Thu 14-Apr-16 10:37:17

YABU I'll have them. Just post them to me c/o Mumsnet Not as good as the toffee ones but much nicer than the orange (haven't eaten Revels in years, do they still do orange ones?).

scarednoob Thu 14-Apr-16 10:37:42

Omg the orange ones are the best ones!!

I buy revels despite the coffee and raisin outrages because part of me feels that if I don't eat 2/5 then I am not eating as much chocolate. of course then I just buy a bigger packet hmm

AbelMancwitch Thu 14-Apr-16 10:37:44

I think they are there as a reminder to make you appreciate the tasty ones more? Or something...

YABVU. They are my favourite. My DH is the same as you though, can't stand them.

I didn't actually realise the peanut ones have been replaced with raisins though - that is a travesty.

AnotherEffingOrangeRevel Thu 14-Apr-16 10:38:13

The real fucker is that coffee and orange (perfection and work of the devil respectively) are the two which are completely indistinguishable from one another on the outside. A cruel, cruel trick.

The Charlatans had a lyric,"life's a bag of Revels, I'm looking for the orange one."

Boogers Thu 14-Apr-16 10:40:33

YABU, coffee Revels are the best ones! smile

There's a hierarchy of Revels: coffee, orange, peanut and then the rest, though it's been years since I had any so I don't know what's in the bag now.

I blame Calvinism.

AnyFucker Thu 14-Apr-16 10:41:34

I like the coffee and the orange ones

I don't like the raisins and the maltesers

kelper Thu 14-Apr-16 10:42:42

I always find theres more maltesers than anything else, I'm not a huge fan of then, but i love the coffee and orange ones ;)

weirdsister Thu 14-Apr-16 10:42:43

I used to love the coconut ones. And the strawberry ones.

Fevertree Thu 14-Apr-16 10:42:46

Love love love coffee revels smile orange and raisin are awful though!

movingonup2015 Thu 14-Apr-16 10:42:55

sorry but I adore the coffee ones, bitterly disappointed when there are only 2 in a pack :-(

MissHooliesCardigan Thu 14-Apr-16 10:43:12

I've just got back into buying Revels recently and haven't found a single coffee one - I assumed they'd been abolished. I haven't come across any coconut ones either sad
