Terry's Chocolate Neapolitans.
This is probably my most sadly missed sweet. These just summed up Christmas for me as a child in the 70s and 80s. I loved the variety of flavours and unwrapping the little bite sized pieces of chocolate and basically everything about them. Every year, without fail, my parents bought me a box, until one fateful year...they were no longer available...I can still remember the disappointment. (Stares whistfully into space, a single tear welling in his eye)
"Neapolitans were solid, oblong chocolates of assorted flavours, indidually wrapped in foiled paper. Neapolitans were manufactured by Terry's in York, Yorkshire. They were particularly popular around Christmas time in England. They were packaged in a cardboard box.
The flavours were:
Blue - Milk Chocolate
Red - Plain Chocolate
Brown - Mocha (coffee flavoured plain chocolate)
Yellow - Cafe Au Lait (coffee flavoured milk chocolate)
Orange - Orange Chocolate
Green - Mint
Since September 2005, the chocolates were no longer produced, due to the closure of the Terry's factory."
Neapolitans were my first introduction to dark chocolate and the start of a lifelong love for coffee and coffee flavoured chocolate.
