Blogmas Day 15: Which Christmas Sweet Tin

Hey everyone, one great thing about Christmas time is the sweet tins that come into the stores. The question is, which one do you like best and why. I am going to list the contants of the two most traditional ones in this post;-


I used to have these as a child as my Dad's favorite was the coffee one but when the coffee one was taken out my parents switched to Quality Streets.

  • Brazilian Darkness - A chewy toffee square with pieces of brazil nuts, coated in dark chocolate. I love this as it is different from the rest of the sweets in the tin and  there is not a bar like it on a regular shelf. Something special for Christmas. 
  • Cadbury Dairy Milk - One  square of Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate divided into two squares 
  • Golden Barrel - Milk chocolate in the shape of half a barrel, filled with caramel.
  • Caramel Velvet - Cadbury Caramel piece, with added truffle inside.
  • Caramel - Cadbury Caramel Toffee piece, Hard toffee in cased in Cadbury Dairy milk Chocolate.
  • Country Fudge - Rectangular fudge piece, coated in milk chocolate.
  • Hazel in Caramel - Crescent-shaped milk chocolate with hazelnut plant engraving on top, filled with caramel and a hazelnut 
  • Hazel Whirl - Dome-shaped milk chocolate, patterned with spiral twirl, with hazelnut in centre.
  • Strawberry Dream - Square-shaped milk chocolate with strawberry seed engravings on top, filled with strawberry-flavoured cream fondant .
  • Tangy Orange Creme - Square-shaped milk chocolate with orange engraving on top, filled with orange-flavoured creme fondant .
  • Coffee Escape - New for Christmas 2013, Cadbury have re-released the soft coffee centred chocolate. Go on Dad you know you want to!!!
  • Signature Truffle - New for Christmas 2013, this is a truffle encased in milk chocolate. Finally a tin with a truffle in ... bad decision by mars to remove it from theirs!!

Quality Streets

This is a good family all rounder, I have a few favorites in this one

  • Milk Chocolate Hazelnut with caramel.
  • Chocolate Noisette Pate (Hazelnut Triangle). This is creamy and smooth. I love praline and this is just the same.
  • Chocolate Toffee Finger .
  • Toffee Penny.
  • Vanilla Fudge. Simple yet satisfying. 
  • Strawberry Delight.
  • Coconut Eclair. Like bounty but not so sweet.
  • Caramel Swirl.
  • Milk Choc Block.
  • Orange Crunch .
  • Orange Creme.
  • Toffee Deluxe.
