    Yes, we have chocolate oranges. White chocolate ones, milk chocolate ones, and dark chocolate ones. I send one (dark chocolate) to a family member every year from Santa. It's just that I've not ever tried one. Can't quite get my head around the combination.

    Did taste a white chocolate and orange one, once and didn't care for it, but I don't like white chocolate, so it wasn't a fair test.

    Roses are the chocolate roses, yes? Chocolate shaped like a rose, wrapped in red foil? That's what we have here anyway.

    I don't know what a whotsit is though, Josh?

    Roses are selection of hard and soft centered chocolate.

    I hate white chocolate but love chocolate orange very yummy. I am tending to go for a darker chocolate of late rather than milk chocolate.

    Ok, well our christmas cupboard is looking beeeautifully yummy at the moment - all in tact too!! So far we have a popping candy chocolate orange, a normal chocolate orange, tin of roses, tin of celebrations, 2 boxes of match makers (orange and mint) and 2 boxes of yummy M&S biscuits! Oh, and i have 2 really delicious cakes in the freezer - although its Isabelle's 3rd birthday in a couple of weeks so we might have them when the family comes in for that!

    So you don't have roses made from chocolate then, rather filled chocolate that you call roses?

    Have a look here Tink. This should give you an idea of what Roses chocolates are.

    Oh! Pretty! They look really sweet though? I mean the filling? Yeah, I know. It's candy it's supposed to be sweet! LOL. I don't much care for achingly sweet things though. They hurt my teeth (always have, even as a kid).

    I like dark chocolate, and dark chocolate with salt. Yepper, weirdo that's me! :D

    Funny you should say that, I was at a clients on Sunday photographing their little girl. She told me that they have been burgled twice, the first time they took all the Harbo sweets, the second time they ran off with two cherry bakewells. These burgleries must be occuring all over the place by the sounds of it
