Fruit fans helpted the Strawberry Delight and Orange Creme round out the top five with 22% and 21% of the vote respectively.

The Strawberry Dream was fourth on 20%. Brazilian Darkness was the least popular Roses treat, with just 10% of chocolate eaters saying it was their favourite.


YouGov also revealed the nation’s favourite Cadbury Heroes and Celebrations.

The most popular Celebration was the Malteasers Teaser with 39%, followed by Galaxy on 29% and Galaxy Caramel on 27%.

The Mars Celebration came in last with just 15%.

‘As Christmas draws in families and workplaces will soon be stocking up on tubs of selection chocolates, followed shortly thereafter by bickering over the best treats contained within,’ said YouGov.

‘A lucky few will experience a perfect harmony of preferences, finding that the chocolates they like the most are hated by everyone they’re sharing them with.

‘But in far more cases an unseemly scrabble for the best chocolates will take place, leaving the weaker members of the group to scavenge through a sad-looking tub of mini-Bountys.’

    Chelsea have consigned Jose Mourinho to history... now the rest could follow suit

    There was a nagging feeling the first time Roman Abramovich sacked Jose Mourinho that Chelsea had made a huge mistake. A Blues statement released upon his departure in 2007 claimed “we had reached a point where the relationship between the club and Jose had broken down” but many fans said goodbye with a heavy heart to a man who had delivered unprecedented success. Back-to-back Premier League titles - including Chelsea’s first for 50 years - cemented Mourinho’s status as one of the finest managers of the era and his return to Stamford Bridge in the away dug-out saw Inter Milan knock his former club out of the Champions League.

    Russia will launch its Soyuz rocket again, just days after a catastrophic failure that forced the astronauts on board into a crashing landing. The next mission will not include any people and instead carry a military satellite into space, according to the Interfax news agency, which cited a source in the space agency. Rocket launches have been suspended since Russian cosmonaut Alexei Ovchinin and American astronaut Nick Hague had to abort their mission and perform an emergency landing after the Soyuz that was supposed to carry them to the International Space Station failed.

    ASML's bullish outlook pulls computer chip stocks higher

    Semiconductor industry bellwether ASML Holding NV's better-than-expected third quarter results and bullish outlook gave sector stocks a boost on Wednesday after fears of slackening demand had dragged them down in recent months. ASML, one of the largest suppliers to Samsung, Intel and TSMC, said demand from both memory and logic computer chip makers remains strong and it expects a record 2018 followed by further growth in 2019. The shares rose 6.7 percent to 165.30 euros, doubling their year to date gains and erasing much of an 18 percent slide they had suffered since July on fears of a slowdown in demand for memory chips.

    Cheech and Chong star tries to travel to Canada for cannabis legalisation day 'but can't find passport'

    Canada’s most famous stoner, comedian and actor Tommy Chong, is unsure if he can make it back home for the day cannabis is legalised because he has lost his passport. The 80-year-old, who starred in the famous reefer comedy Up In Smoke in 1972 and now lives in California, was supposed to appear at an event in British Columbia on Wednesday but discovered while packing that he has mislaid his travel documents. Chong became one of the most well-known marijuana advocates along with his comedy partner, Cheech Marin, during the heydey of the stoner era in the 1970s.
