A Definitive Ranking Of The 8 Most Commonly Bought Christmas Chocolates

A Definitive Ranking Of The 8 Most Commonly Bought Christmas Chocolates

We're a stone's throw away from Christmas now, which means that the country has already started munching on the boxes of chocolates their mother warned not to open until the big day.

But sure the excitement is simply too much. Therefore we thought it perfect time to finally rank what this festive period has to offer. You can of course form your own opinion of how these should rank but that opinion will be wrong.

8. Lemons

Complete and utter crap. Unless you're a grandmother you have no right in buying these. Sure half them aren't even chocolate. A waste of time.


7. Snowballs

They're far from great but for some reason they will always end up being in the house. They're the sort of thing that you'll reach for in desperation when everything else chocolate based has been eaten.


6. Milk Tray

Pretty damn boring but when you buy them for someone else it makes you look like a posh and thoughtful bastard.


5. Quality Street

Overrated and undersized. The green triangle is 'meh' at best and I don't care who I offend with that statement.


4. Heroes

There's nothing wrong with Heroes per se, but there's nothing exciting either. They're like that lad you went out with for a while before realising he was nothing more than friend material.


3. Roses

'OMG how can you not have Roses no.1!?' Feck off. Exclusivity does not necessarily mean quality. Just because they have certain chocolates - like the swirly hazelnut one - that you can't find elsewhere does not make them the best.

There is simply too much wastage in a tin of Roses to consider them for top spot.


2. Ferrero Rocher

If this were a pound-for-pound taste ranking then these would be the winner. They are perfect in every way. The only problem is that you can eat far too many of them in a short period and then be put off them for days . Their own downfall is their lack of variety.


1. Celebrations

Lookit, we can act all perfect and yap about tins of Roses and Quality Street but deep down, when we're really honest with ourselves, we know that Celebrations are best.

They may not be the fanciest. They may not offer much in the way of originality. But by God Almighty are they a good box of chocolates. The Malteser, the Snickers ... the two types of Galaxy ... get me some now!
