Christmas Chocolate
 
Not a huge chocolate eater but as Meow mentioned earlier you just have to have a chocolate orange, still need to get that :) we always get After Eights as well. Do you get Quality Street or something else? what's your favourite festive chocolate indulgence?

Park and Shop have tins of Quality Street in, the missus just got us one. Christmas is not the same without them.

Quality Street for sure, way more fun than Celebrations.

I prefer Cadbury's chocolate so Roses wins hands down for me.

The quality street here are crap- where are the orange ones?

I used to like Quality Street, but the chocolate just tastes cheap these days. For me, the aforementioned Terry's Chocolate Orange (preferably dark chocolate, althought the honeycomb one is nice too) and I fancy a box of Chocolate Brazils. Anyone see any?

My brother usually sends me the nicest American chocolates (a million times better than that Hershey crap) - See's Candies. Their Nuts & Chews are divine.
