I love a bit of chocolate, me. I often indulge my love of the delicious sweet, and I’m regularly spoiled for choice when carefully selecting which treat to go for. At this time of year, I look forward to (hopefully) receiving a selection box of choc bars that I can guzzle.
So I decided to find out what the favourite chocolate bars were amongst my friends.
The choices were limited to the sort of chocolate bars that you can buy in a sweet shop, or the confectionery counter of a newsagent. Boxes of chocolates – such as Milk Tray or Roses – wouldn’t count. Neither would chocolate cake or chocolate digestive biscuits.
Also, the choice would have to be actual chocolate – so the vote I received for Highland Toffee was also discounted. I allowed Caramac, though – because Caramac is great, and I make the rules.

Claire W – Picnic
Sara-Jane – Green & Black’s Ginger

Shaun C – Texan bar
Jazbo – Texan bar
Corrine – Galaxy
Urien – Wispa Gold
Lee T – Picnic
Steph C – Wispa Gold
Lisa P – Cadbury Fuse
Vanessa – Fry’s Turkish Delight
Me – Galaxy
The result? It’s a draw!
Both Wispa and Starbar received six votes each. Although I did count Wispa Gold in with the other Wispas…
Double Decker put in a brave fight to come third.
I tried a Starbar after this poll, just for research, you see. It was quite nice, but I didn’t like the nuts. For me, nuts shouldn’t be in chocolate. Peanuts should be served salted with a nice beer.
I’ll happily leave this poll as a draw, safe in the knowledge that the dreaded – and totally over-rated Crunchie – didn’t show it’s evil face.
