I think that Roses has a slightly superior caramel barrel, but Quality Street has the purple hazelnut in caramel one. They both have far too many toffees.

I’m quite partial to a Bounty in a Celebrations tin. It’s a nice counterbalance to the slight sickliness of a Mars.

Fuck it meant to put “I’m a catholic / Jan 6” option

Christmas is peak “I do not care for this, but I am not going to try to ruin anyone’s enjoyment of it because I am not That Guy, so stop trying to involve me please” for me, Clives.


You should set up an amnesty box to collect all the unwanted Bounty bars - you’d have enough to last you through to February.

I remember going to church on Christmas morning and being encouraged to bring one toy along to show the rest of the congregation. It was a weird compromise: “you can bring your toy!” “but you’re not allowed to properly play with it!” “but you should show everyone what you’ve got!” “but let’s not forget the real meaning of Christmas!”
