Fivebuoys Frye creme five flavours. No longer made?
They sell peppermint , orange,plain,strawberry, raspberry , you can make a huge one.

They used to sell a dark chocolate toffe crisp bar , cannot remember the name of it? Any suggestions.

Morrison's has reintroduced kinder milk slices after thirty odd years. From norway.

Don't mention current stuff. What have they removed from the shelf? 

Blitz. Texas chew.

I think that's taking the "may contain nuts" warning a step too far. No matter.

Am I correct in thinking that there used to be a coconut Revel lurking in the 'King of All Sweets' range? And why hasn't anyone posted an image yet of some European confectionary called Shitto or Vagmuff as is usually de rigueur round here?

Oh, and Lanky Larry.

Fullers (from Kilmarnock) mad a truffle bar which came in two bars like a bounty in a turkish delight coloured wrapper. It was the best chocolate bar ever made! They also did other bars including marzipan and coconut.It was always the truffle bar that ran out in the few shops that stocked them. They went out of business in the early 1970's.

Neapolitans (chocolate)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigationJump to search
Neapolitans are individually wrapped square/rectangular pieces of chocolate in assorted flavours. They have been produced in several different flavours and by numerous confectionery companies. They have been served by hotels and coffee shops (often with a cup of coffee) and when used for promotional purposes may feature packaging with personalised branding.

Terry’s Neapolitans
Terry's of York, England, first produced Neapolitans in 1899.[1] The company was sold to Kraft Foods in 1993 and Terry's Neapolitans were discontinued in 2005 when their York factory was closed.[2] The flavours were:[3]

Milk Chocolate (Blue)
Plain Chocolate (Red)
Mocha (coffee flavoured plain chocolate) (Brown)
Cafe Au Lait (coffee flavoured milk chocolate) (Turquoise)
Orange Milk Chocolate (Orange)
Orange Plain Chocolate (Pink)
Terry's also produced a selection of mint-flavoured neapolitans and cream-filled neapolitans. They would occasionally be sold in alternative packaging such as jars.[citation needed]

Similar boxed mixed assortments currently in production include Marks and Spencer's Neapolitans and Lindt Napolitains.

Report elisjohn June 4, 2020 4:37 PM BST

Cafe Au Lait (coffee flavoured milk chocolate) (Turquoise)
Orange Milk Chocolate (Orange)
