General / Revels
« on: November 07, 2004, 04:52:18 pm »

Anyone else played the raining revels game at ?

Quite good fun I thought although the controls are a bit sensitive.

Anyone brave enough to post their highest score here?


(just made this topic sticky as I'm about to mail a news item including it)

More features on the way, but just to keep you happy take a look at the

our database of chocbars).

Any comments please reply to this topic.

FAQ / About forum rankings
« on: September 28, 2004, 09:59:04 am »
You'll notice you have two forum rank meters underneath your username when you post items to the forum.

The first (made of chocolate blocks) indicates the percentage of
products within the review that you have voted for (you have to keep
voting for new products to maintain your chocolate mad status).

The second (made of stars) indicates how many postings you've made to
the forum or if you are a moderator of the forum (up to 3 stars for
more postings, 4 stars for a moderator). Moderators of the forum are
selected by chocadmin at my discression <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0">

UPDATE: Ok the new forum only shows your number of postings rank, your chocolate rank is displayed in the top-right of review web pages other than the forum at the moment.

Eating Methods / This forum
« on: September 23, 2004, 01:08:16 pm »

OK well I had to add a forum on this. I know there are so many of you
out there who have to eat your twix a layer at a time, or deep-fry your
mars bars.

Post your habits or ideas in this forum - just as long as they're 'clean' and legal.



FAQ / Where did the old forum go?
« on: September 23, 2004, 12:58:54 am »
The old forum system was getting rather full and was a bit clunky. It you want to view postings in the old system click here.

Note you can't put new postings in the old forum any more.

If you spot something in the old system that you'd like copied into the
new forum either copy and paste it yourself or send us an e-mail with
the details of the posting you'd like copied.

FAQ / Bar of mousse and drizzled chocolate?
« on: September 19, 2004, 08:56:49 pm »
Called Secret a bar often referred to using Shredded wheat to describe what it looked like. First made by Rowntree (now owned by Nestle) in the late 80s (confirmation needed).
From post of user 'WillieWonka':
Production of Secret bars stopped about 1996. Complicated process to make them -chocolate "shredded wheat" bar with a fondant centre. Plant was scrapped / sold off when production stopped (not a big seller) so no chance of them coming back. Too sweet and sickly for me anyway. A bit like a giant Walnut Whip with no walnut, lots of fondant centre and not much chocolate. Having said that I love Walnut Whips.

FAQ / Melts in your Mouth
« on: September 19, 2004, 08:50:16 pm »
There is always discussion about which product had the slogan 'Melts in your mouth not in your hand'.

The general consensus is that this is either M&M's or Minstrels
(depending on which side of the atlantic you're from).

Given that at the time Mars had a near monopoly on bagged, round
chocolate sweets (owning minstrels, m&m's, and maltesers) it could
have been applied to more than one product at one time or another.
