1) Dairy Milk Tiffin

After being off the shelves for years, Tiffin made its comeback in 2016. Hallelujah!

2) Cadbury Coconut Boost

The core centre made up of dessicated coconut combined with a normal Boost bar was just too good - why on EARTH was this masterpiece ever taken out of circulation?!

3) Mars Delight

That caramel and chocolate cream filling mixed with that wafer, was a pure delight. Sadly, we despite people's efforts, this Mars chocolate bar won't be returning anytime soon.

4) Cadbury Marble

Milk and white chocolate AND praline in one bar? Yup. Cadbury's really are one of the best at coming up with new recipes.

6) Time Out

The Time Out was very slyly taken off the shelves - basically a chocolate wafer, but SO MUCH MORE. Thankfully, they still exist in shops as a single wafer.

7) Cadbury Snow Flake

The geniuses at Cadbury decided to merge their white Dream chocolate with the standard flake to create utter perfection in this little bar. But why, oh why, did they stop making them?!

11) Cadbury Fuse

12) Terry's Pyramint

Basically, a pyramid version of an After Eight but with a slightly sloppier middle. We miss these!

13) KitKat Senses

We can't for the life of us think why these went extinct. But they've been refashioned in a selection box, so that's something at least.

14) Milkybar Choo

We're hoping this one will make a comeback. The strange combination of white chocolate and fudge worked surprisingly perfectly.

15) Cadbury Taz Bar

When Taz became extinct, this chocolate bar was revolutionised as a Freddo bar with caramel. But we miss that devil.

16) Twix Top

This was the highlight of our school packed lunches... Anyone else?!

17) Cadbury Snaps

They're like Pringles - but chocolate. And just like our favourite snack, you couldn't ever just have one Snap!

18) Rowntree's Secret

Withdrawn due to low sales volumes, the marshmallow centre wrapped in thick chocolate was a real treat back in the day.

19) Cadbury Wispa Mint

We've all had a Wispa, haven't we? But the mint version had an extra edge to it that was just simply divine. Sigh.

The mighty chew.

Forget Maltesers, this really was a lighter way to enjoy chocolate.

Office parties will never be the same again, with Clyde amounting to a whopping 45cm and serving around 24 people. Who could possibly stomach that much cake? OH WAIT...US!

But what about the price?
