When you have a box of chocolates which ones do you give away?

I will always give away the strawberry creams - though I love fresh strawberries. I'm not keen on any other creams either tho' since they are in chocolate I can force myself ;o) I get to keep the fudge, caramel, truffle, turkish delight and anything with nuts in!

WHAT!? Are you people crazy? Give away your chocolates? That's just nuts! No, I am just kidding. I leave the caramel ones in the box. They stick to my teeth. Everything else is MINE! ALL MINE!

I keep telling myself I wont eat the caramels to save my teeth but, well, they taste good ... and they last longer!

True, true. I love the taste of caramel. And, I do sometimes put one in my mouth and just let it dissolve. Ahhhh, the layers of chocolate melting away on my tongue. Then the caramel just sitting there, melting ever so slowly, leaving the sugary goodness on my taste buds. Ok, you've convinced me. I don't have to CHEW the caramel ones. And, now, the whole box is mine!*heehee*

ha! that reminds me of the story of the vicar visiting an old lady and helping himself from a bowl of peanuts whilst she was in the kitchen making tea. He says he hopes she doesn't mind and she replies - 'no problem, I cant manage the nuts with these dentures so I just suck the chocolate off!!'

I always give away the coffee and turkish delight chocolates. I like all the others, including the strawberry, orange and cherry cream ones, although I know a lot of people don't like these.

OK I'll swap your turkish delight for my strawberry creams! You can have the cherry ones too.

I give then all away except the ones with nuts, caramel, and toffee. There are a couple of the maple flavored creams that I will keep for myself, but as for the rest, they either get eaten by someone else of go in the trash...lol

Yes, I like the contrast in texture too.

Even though I love all fresh fruit, I wont eat any of the chocolates with the fruit filling. That is just wrong, trying to combine fruit and chocolate! LOL I love the ones with chocolate sprinkles that come in the See's candy box. Those are the ultimate.

I think most box of chocolates require a unique taste. And I don't have it, lol. They all taste really weird to me, like fake flavors or chocolate. I don't know, it's weird. The green ones gross me out and the strawberry is kind of off to me. It's annoying that you have to make a imprint in one just to see what's in them, lol.

I keep all bit the ones with nuts and the chewy ones. I think nuts and chocolate don't mix and i don't like the chewy ones sticking to my teeth

I give them all away. Cocoa allergy. Haven't found myself with chocolate since Sainsburys managed to give me a choc orange as a substitute for a loaf of bread .... They loved me at work the next day ...

I honestly don't care what other people take just as long as they ask me first. I just don't like the chewy ones, they hurt my teeth.

Chocolate - Very yummy. And at times good for you.
I too will give away most of the cream ones. I don't care for the strawberry or the lemon cream kind. And I give away the ones with pecans. But other then that I love the rest.

there must be people out there who like the cream ones ... or maybe they're cheaper to make so manufacturers pad the box out with them??

Hi Usually , I will eat all the nut filled , or caramel ones. Some creams are okay and I will pick at them sometimes. Usually , the fruit filled ones get passed down . I think everyone keeps the good ones esp the nuts and fudge . Yum

If they've been in the fridge so the cream is fairly solid, I just pick the chocolate off and bin the centres.
