Uch. gross things. Why do they always put more of them in then any other type? It's the element of suprise that I find the hardest, they creep up on you whilst you are engrossed in a film, disguised as a malteser/toffee/coffee ball then all hell breaks loose when you bite into them, they destroy the taste of everything else as anything after them is just tainted with that vile orange taste.

I've even tried guessing by sniffing them individually but they all smell alike on the outside. What am i to do?

Keep them and send them to me- those and the coffee ones are my faves!

Oh I lurve Revels - all the better now they've removed the peanut ones !

they should be banned,, replaced with toffee ones
(did you think of this after reading the jelly babies thread? )

coffee and orange are the work of the devil. you should be able to pick and mix your own bag.

YABU they are the only ones I like

totally agree with FoghornLeghorn - I hate all nuts so could never eat revels for fear of striking unlucky and getting the dreaded nut one.

You could switch to maltesers?

Coffe is the worst, and then orange

I love the ornage ones it is the coffee I hate.

toffee are rubbish, I like the orange ones the best. Followed by coffee.

Lauriefairycake Fri 18-Apr-08 17:45:29

I love 'em too

DH won't even buy Revels as he's scared of the coffee ones grin

hifi Fri 18-Apr-08 17:46:43

constan, you are not normal grin

Revels are just generally wrong. The coffee ones are foul, the orange ones are so sweet you can feel your teeth melting, the ones that look like Minstrels aren't Minstrels, therefore naff. The toffees are too chewy and the Malteser ones are always stale. I agree with StealthPolarBear, Dairy Milk wins every time.

YABU - they're the ones that are sent from heaven and because they're not gluten-free, I can't have them. <stamps feet>. I miss orange revels sad

I hate the orange and coffee ones. Gross.

I take a tiny bite into them and when I discover they are the yukky ones I give them to dh. He's getting fed up with this deal though. Especially when I've half chewed them.

I am with constancereader on this one. I love the orange and coffee ones and find the toffee ones revolting. However I do have a 95% success rate in identifying various flavours by the shape prior to eating them so usually manage to hoik out the toffee ones. A highly useless talent I know but hey ho! grin

now they've ditched the peanut ones, I like them all.

All of them I tell ye!!!!

(lapin - I got my dongle today grin)

Heathcliffscathy Fri 18-Apr-08 18:16:01

orange ones are what you buy revels for!!!

SheWillBeLoved Fri 18-Apr-08 18:18:13

Any sort of fruit or coffee chocolate makes me want to projectile vomit all over the eejit that invented the things. Complete waste of chocolate!
