Okay, so this is contentious.
But new research has revealed that one particular chocolate came out tops in a survey of Ireland’s favourite picks from the Christmas sweet tin.
The Maltesers sweet from the Celebrations tin was the most popular treat.
Quality Street’s Strawberry Delight came in second, their Green Triangle placed third, and Celebrations’ Galaxy landed the fourth-place slot. Finishing the top five out was Heroes’ Dairy Milk.
The research, undertaken by Aldi, also shows that Celebrations is the nation’s favourite sweet tin. In second place was Heroes, and followed closely by Quality Street and Cadbury’s Selection Box which were joint for third.
Meanwhile, it was bad news for Roses lovers as the tin finished in last place.
A predictable 68% of people admitted to eating more sweets than usual in the lead-up to Christmas, while 43% also admitted to regularly eating sweets or desserts for breakfast during Christmas week.
Interestingly, 18% of people would rather sacrifice Christmas dinner than not be able to eat any treats over Christmas week.
