My all time favourite treat is a Tunnocks caramel wafer biscuit! Oh the lovely chocolate and chewy sensation of the wafer inside -heavenly!

Kit Kat - preferably four finger - can't be beaten. (...although I do Like a Tunnock's too.)

Chocolate coated Brazil's, crisp mint chocolate, raspberry cupcakes made by my friend and, because it's Christmas (!!!) meltis fruits.

Cadbury's Milk Wholenut Chocolate.

Fruit and nut chocolate.

I'm afraid it has to be Toblerone. I only just found out recently that the way to snap off the triangles is to push them towards the stack, not try to pull one off. Works much better!

A can of caffeine free, sugar free, carb free coke. Oh and a fat free low carb vanilla yogurt. Sad aren’t I.

Crunchie bars but, my goodness, are they bad for your teeth!

Once a year at Christmas we order hand made chocolates and they are divine.

Pistachio ice cream

Nougat glacé as a pudding, nougat as a sweet.

Whitewavemark2 Fri 13-Nov-20 16:06:07

Ooh nougat! And chocolate marzipan!

Gwenisgreat1 Fri 13-Nov-20 16:08:11

Chocolate in any form!!

Chocolate raisins! Mmmm.

Auntieflo Fri 13-Nov-20 16:28:49

A Coffee Walnut Whip, if I can find one.

Is wine classed as a sweet treat? Failing that a Frys Turkish Delight. (yes, I sang that as I was typing) grin

I am with you LadyStardust. I am not keen on sweet things.

LadyStardust Fri 13-Nov-20 16:37:17

dragonfly46 I was going to say I much prefer cheese but didn't want the thread to go off topic! Oh cheese and wine. Heaven!

ayse Fri 13-Nov-20 16:37:56

Chocolate or cheesecake

Beauregard Fri 13-Nov-20 16:40:59

Lindor truffles, chocolate nuts, dark chocolate nougat.

Allegretto Fri 13-Nov-20 16:41:52

Peanut butter ice cream!

Syrup tart. Runner up lemon meringue pie. Dh doesn’t eat anything sweet, not worth making for one (I would pig myself) so I always choose if on menu.

The other thing we are both longing for is lardy cake from local family bakery. Not had any since February cos of self isolating. Sob!

shysal Fri 13-Nov-20 16:51:12

Tunnock's tea cake, Star Bar or a home made pavlova. The list could be long!

Grannmarie Fri 13-Nov-20 16:54:53

The " purple ones" from Quality Street.
I love chocolate and nuts...
