Tell us what type of chocolate you like to eat and why?
This group does not have any discussions yet.
My school didn't allow us to take sweets to school, probably because they had their own tuck shop (£££) one day I sneaked in a bag of sweets and very naughtily tucked into them during lesson, inevitably my teacher caught me eating the sweets, she was a lovely lady and her only punishment was to make us share our sweets with the whole class, with a big smile on her face she said, right young lady, start sharing, but my smile was much bigger than hers when i produced a large bad of sherbet pips. I'll never forget my teacher laughing as i handed out one "pip" to each child and I'll never forget our kind teacher with the unusual name of Mrs Law-Law.
The sweets I hated were. Fry's chocolate cream, Dolly mixtures, Aniseed balls, Winter warmers, and who remembers IMPS (YUCKY!!) Turkish delight, Liquorice all sorts, (Sorry Bertie) but I didn't mind the ones with the little "beads on" The little coconut covered mushrooms, cumfy cushions, Liquorice wood (what was that all about?) Black Jacks (I think I have a Liquorice hate thing going on!) Orange Smarties, Flying saucers, Fruit gums (to hard) Sugar mice, Spangles, Milk bottles, and Rainbow drops.
I was talking with a mate of mine earlier, and mentioned orange Yo-Yos - round choccy bars of about 2" diameter, with an orange wrapper. They came also in a mint flavour with a green wrapper, and one other -would it be vanilla -with a red wrapper.
"Oh yeah!" came the reply, They were nice!"
Did anyone else, like me, try to straighten out the wrapper into a neat square? Own up!
Were Yo-Yos a kind of round biscuit? I liked Wagon wheels also snowballs. I was given some Lindt chocolates for Christmas round chocolate balls soft on the inside, really nice! I did something much more silly than trying to straighten out the wrappers of sweets, I really shouldn't admit this but I use to take the yellow cellophane wrapper carefully off a Lucozade bottle and watch TV through it.
Hi Crafter, Yes Yo-yos were round, rather like penguins but orange or mint. You're not the only one who watched TV through Lucozade wrappers - it was always sunny, but everyone had a jaundiced view....
Anyone else call the slip of paper in a chocolate box telling you which shape was which flavour "the instructions"?
Anyone else dastardly who swapped over the wrappers in Quality Street so nobody would eat the orange creams as they were in disguise?
Chocolate: Lidl do a 74% plain chocolate. It's excellent, not as bitter as Bournville, and at 79p, very reasonable.
