Hmm is it Double Cream, or Yorkie that you like so much? Or just any Nestle (cooking) chocolate?

Now, now Kevvosa, don't be so disparaging of ALL Nestle products. I mean, it's not as if Cadbury can take the moral high ground over the quality of their chocolate.


Besides, I like Scotbloc [mmmmmmmmm, greasy]

I do like a lot of Nestle products (their white chocolate is one of the
best) and Double Cream is good also...but when it comes to things like
Toffee Crisp, it tastes awful.

Actually today I had a Yorkie Raisin & biscuit, I hadnt had one for
ages so thought I'd try it. It was horrible - the chocolate has changed
and tasted very cheap and nasty.

Yorkie chocolate really is the bottom of the barrel in chocolate stakes.  Toffee crisp - well.......

Actually got round to eating a Seville orange KitKat.  A little bit sickly, but I was impressed by the topping, which really did taste of Seville oranges.  I much prefer the toffee one.

I think they must use Chivers shredless 'Old English' marmalade for it!

Quite possibly. It doesn't go though does it.

Yes Lou Lou, the Skuas are a nasty bunch of seabirds, distant relatives of Gulls they are pirates of the sea, chasing other birds ragged until the victim is so exhausted and nervous it  regugitates it's stomach contents, which the Skua gobbles up - 'free dinner'.  This one is the smallest of the species that appear in this neck of the woods.
