If you look at your chocolate history, you'll notice that, in the past, the big chocolate makers of the day didn't compete much against each other. They usually made their own version of things. I suppose you could argue that a Mackintosh's Golden Cup was a bit like a Cadbury's Caramel, but the chocolate and toffee were distinctly different.

I'm surprised Kraft haven't got around to it!

Bounty + caramel + cherries = Cabana, doesn't it?

I'm just being sarcastic. I feel that unfussy people shop at Thornton's and that they're unfussy with the people they employ. The one near me, the girl behind the counter had her tongue down this guy's throat whilst I was looking around! I'm not sure that was in her contract!

Well, they've taken the crispy centre from Mars Planets and discontinued it, put it together with the soft centre and are calling the result Twix Mix.

It's a shame you don't have a Hotel Chocolat near you because they're ethically sound. I'm not sure about Thornton's; they may get their cocoa from West Africa and that could bring up a child slavery problem. Rainbow, have you ever looked at The Chocolate Trading Company? They do stuff by The Grenada Chocolate Company and many more. The only companies they do that I'm not ethically sure of are Lindt and Charbonnel Et Walker. Have a look.

I would put some jam into the middle of a Wagon Wheel. What's that you say? That thin line is jam! Well, I never...

Cadbury probably didn't want to get into that market. They were mates with Rowntree back in their Quaker days and weren't into the whole competition thing like that. Now that Kraft have them, you may get your wish at some point.

I'm of the opinion that the average Joe in the street has no idea what proper chocolate tastes like and instead is addicted to sugary sweetness. Thornton's cater for these people and, from what I've seen, employ them too!

Well, I can't say I'm surprised. Won't stop people shelling out for it, though. Has Mars Planets been discontinued?

I suppose CDM is OKish in a nostalgic way. I just can't bring myself to buy any due to the Kraft connection and what they've done to the industry.
