Ok, so the biscuit thread made me think of this, but... What's your favourite chocolate bar?

Bonus points: What's the difference between a chocolate bar and a biscuit :confused:


The winner is...

The Kit Kat of course :ok:

Followed closely by
dark Toblerone

Got to be Cadbury's dairy milk..chunky bar.
Worst, Fruit and nut bit like garibaldi bisciuts!!
Definitely no American chocolate..greasy
No foreign rubbish as they said we couldn't call ours proper choccie under EU regs..How dare they.

My favourite chocolate bar has to be a biscuit boost, despite the name you have to agree that it's not a biccie. But judging by the crumbs on my shirt I have to say that a smarties cookie from [email protected] would come close if given a choice.

Bournville Dark Chocolate black as sin, slightly bitter,yummy, milk chocolate belongs on the breast feeding thread.
One does admit to occasionaly nibbling on a Kit Kat with a cup of tea , more of a chocky biscuit yer Kit Kat is though IMHO anyway.
:rolleyes:

Can't decide between Chokitos or Cherry Ripes.
Can't get them in the UK unless I go to specialist Oz Tucker importers.

Flavour of the week is Lindt white chocolate with coconut bits in.
I'd choose cheese over chocolate though if they were having a duel.

The original Wispa bar before Cadburys did a cost reduction on the cholcolate they used.

onthebumline
12th May 2004, 12:30
The new bar from Mars called delight.

Apparantely gram for gram the most unhealthy chocolate bar available in the world..........possibly even in the Milky Way!!!!

Lindtt Easter Bunnies seem to be pretty moreish too.

Can women really be addicted to cocolate?

Chocolate - one of my favorite subjects!!!


And yes it is certainly possible for women (and men) to be addicted to chocolate - apparently it gives the same boost as sex :O


Am I addicted? Well that would be telling

12th May 2004, 13:16
A chocolate bar is like a nude women. There are no bad ones!!!

Not in my opinion.:}

Maya Gold dark chocolate, gopt to be one of the best things to come in a wrapper.

12th May 2004, 22:49
Bournville - does no-one still like dark chocolate?

spud's on the job
12th May 2004, 23:19
does anyone else still call snickers a 'Marathon' and also do you still call it Nessles rather than Neslay, maybe Im just too nostalgic

my vote however goes for a Double Decker - served at room temperature otherwise the Nougat (pronounced nugget down my street) breaks yer teeth

josephshankes

To answer your question, yes I do. Where I live there is not a lot of choice!:O

gotta be cadburys' "star bar" :ok:

reynoldsno1
13th May 2004, 00:32
Whittaker's Almond Gold or Hazelnut bar ... only available in NZ though....

Definitely no American chocolate..greasy
Always found most American chocolate anything but - the cocoa content is far higher then UK chocolate (as is the above). In fact, I believe there was some problem a few years ago with Cadbury's not meeting the EU standards for a confection to be described as "chocolate" due to the high fat/low cocoa content?

13th May 2004, 00:55
Eating: anything dark, the darker the better.

Cooking: Abuelita. Hard Mexican chocolate, with cacao nibs and a touch of cinnamon. Boil some in your coffee some time!

As a pool toy: BABY RUTH !!!!!

Cadbury's (?) Lunch Bar

Love the peanuts....

MadsDad
23rd May 2004, 10:29
Large bar of Cadbury's dairy milk.

Not for any particular preference, just because it's currently in the fridge (or at least until I get there). :E

You're all wrong, the correct answer is: FLAKE !

Picnic Picnic Picnic (I only said it three times to meet the requirement for at least 15 characters so I would not waste bandwidth and it would be a worthwhile answer !!!!!)

Personally I thought it was a valid question and a forthright, valid and essentially accurate response which added to the debate and was succinct while informative (and bandwidth efficient).

But I am happy to be contradicted - and by no means upset by the rejection of initial reply (well perhaps a 'tad' petulant), namely ......

Flake straight from the 'fridge and .... Mint Aero (mini) the same ... I can't eat a whole range of bars cos of the biscuits/bits/add-ins but ... these two are deeeeeeevine! hehehe

I don't often eat chocolate - in fact it is at least a year since I ate a flake and I can't remember when I last tried mint aero .. hmmmmmm ::making note on shopping list:: :ok:

All time favourite has to be the Curly Whirly, Pretty sure it was about two feet long the last time I bought one:ok:

I see British-made chocolate will have to be marketed under a different name in the EU, sometime this year? I think it has to be called "family chocolate" as opposed to "milk chocolate"?

panda-k-bear
23rd May 2004, 22:34
Thank you EU for another load of old tosh!

Me, I'm a big fan of Picnics and Drifters (yummy).

But my all time fave has to be the big bars of Cadbury's Dairy Milk with the bits of shortcake biscuit in it.

Tarek Nor
6th Aug 2004, 04:24
Has to be Fry's Chocolate cream :cool:

Otherwise it's Galaxy or Bourneville. :cool:

All straight from the fridge. :ok:


EU and US chocolate - I don't think so :yuk:

My favourite is the good old Yorkie bar, hotly pursued by a FLake.

6th Aug 2004, 08:20
Surely we cannot all have missed the delights of Kinder Bueno???

And it's spin-off the "happy hippo"?

Cracking choccie.

Loving a bit of galaxy ripple as well but not necesarily (spelling?) in a warm candlelit bath surrounded by brown silk like on the ad.

Flakes never fail to delight. Like a good whore.

I have alot of favourite chocolates :p

Lindt, Kit Kat, Mars bars, Viking and many more :} Too many to name!

Above all, I think I like chocolate with nuts and fruit. Cadbury is VERY nice :E

Boss Raptor
6th Aug 2004, 14:40
Tesco Value Dark Chocolate 27p

Tesco Value Milk Chocolate 55p

Aldi's Fruit & Nut 52p

Aldi's Generic Wagon Wheels...cant remember but dont cost much

All excellent value and comparable to leading brands - 8 out of 10 skinflints who expressed a preference... :ok:

2nd Nov 2004, 06:39
Bendick's Bittermints. OK it's more mint than dark chocolate but it's decadent.

Dark chocolate Bounty.

Used to bring back a Cadbury's milk chocolate bar for the staff when I came back from England. Told them I could only bring back one bar and they would have to split it.

It weighed 1.2 kg.

It also educated them on the difference between English and Canadian Cadburys.

2nd Nov 2004, 06:50
Has to be the original Kit Kat - but the English version.

Perhaps it's just me, but the foil wrapped English ones taste better than the plastic wrapped ones we get around here.

Anyone else noticed that?

MadsDad
2nd Nov 2004, 08:36
ramsrc

The English ones are now plastic wrapped as well. Don't know if it makes a difference to the taste but one of the pleasures of eating a Kit-Kat was laying it flat on the table and carefully unwrapping the foil. Mustn't tear it or it will spoil the experience.

Prefer the big 'single stick' Kit-Kat anyway to tell the truth - except they've stopped puting them in the choccie machines at work.:{

tall and tasty

EU and US chocolate - I don't think so

I agree about the US chocolate - greasy tasteless rubbish, but EU chocolate ?? Belgian chocolate well deserves its rating as best in the world although I do have a personal love of Green and Blacks plain organic chockie

Gotta be Cherry Ripe.

Please someone tell me where I can get Cherry Ripe in the UK?!

Also like another Aussie choccie bar, mint cracknel strands covered in chocolate. Can't remember its name though.

(Found out its called Peppermint Crisp and someone selling it in London :ok: Cherry Ripes sold out though :( )

Onan the Clumsy
2nd Nov 2004, 13:16
The availability of UK stuff over here makes it difficult to answer when people ask what they want me to bring over, but the answer usually is KitKats and Whittard's English Breakfast tea.

Dark Toblerone is ok too, but you can get that over here.

2nd Nov 2004, 13:57
Has to be a box of Guylian Chocolate sea shells - Anyone who buys me those is my instant best friend (I am so shallow!):sad:

Any chocolate Bar manufactured by Harry London's Chocolate shop. If you've ever flown into CAK, you'll know the place I'm talking about. Their dark chocolate is excellent, and the milk chocolate melts in your mouth with no waxy texture or aftertaste. It's WONDERFUL!

Peppermint Crisp. Break the ends off and drink cold milk through it as if using a drinking straw. Lovely minty choccy flavour to the milk.

Black Cat peanut butter bar. Don't usually eat peanut butter but this one is great. Peanut butter and nougat covered in milk choc.

The best chocolate bar is the Galaxy what else.Second fave milka bar

2nd Nov 2004, 23:40
It's a shame that Caramac isn't classed as a chocolate bar. (Probably something to do with there not being any choclate in it I suppose. :rolleyes: )
If only there were giant caramac bars available and not just the thin whisps of a portion in the shops. :{
With chocolate in mind, I must agree with flybhx and the duty free giant size white toblerone. (with a large mug of tea.) :ok:

Plain Bounty .. has to be straight from the FREEZER !!

Jameson's Raspberry Ruffle bars are divine.

Fry's, of Chocolate Cream fame used to do one with five fruit flavoured creams under that loverly choccy.
Although I do rather like those Reese's cups (not the choccy, but the peanut butter centre).

Gulian Chocolate sea shells, mmm, must try Mrs Noise on those if they're good, she's a bit of a chocoholic.

TheNightOwl
5th Nov 2004, 03:34
Guylian Sea-shells are, undoubtedly, exceedingly decadent, but I'd kill for a large Yorkie bar again - I haven't seen one in years! Are they still available in the UK?

Kind regards,

TheNightOwl.:ok:

Standard Noise

Yep, the Yorkie is alive and well. Now advertised as not being for girls. I'm sure they must be breaking a law doing that, even though it's TIC.

While on an APC in Deci I tried one of the german Rhino bars.
Tasted like something brown that came out of a Rhino and was rock hard at 32 Centigrade!

The best has to be any Galaxy and Raisin and Biscuit Yorkie!
