This past week saw World Chocolate Day come to pass, so what better time to tuck into your favourite treat?
And whether you’re the type of person to scoff it all in one bite or savour each mouthful, there are some chocolatey treats that are just impossible to eat normally.
Whether it’s licking off the chocolate first or separating it into bits to eat it, we’ve taken a look at the chocolate bars that people love to savour.
The usual way of eating this is to lick off the caramel and then eat the biscuit. Although caramel lovers might want to eat the biscuit first and save the best ‘til last, you will invariably end up in a sticky mess using this method.

It requires a gentle touch to peel away the biscuity layers one by one but it is worth it. Our minds were blown when it emerged few years ago that the filling is actually made from broken up bits of Kit Kat. Bonus points for finding a Kit Kat partly made of solid chocolate.

No-one eats these normally, and it seems that everyone has their own very firm ideas on the correct way to eat them. Slicing off the top and scooping out the delicious filling is obviously the best way, then you can savour the chocolate shell afterwards.
Legend has it that some people eat the chocolate first, then the fudge. As the only way to do this is to lick the chocolate off slowly it’s a show of real commitment – not to mention restraint!
Similar to Fudge bars except you’re allowed to bite a bit off and let the chocolate melt in your mouth before crunching the rest (according to the official chocolate eating rules).
Those bubbles are made for melting. Bite off the solid chocolate end and stick your tongue into the rest to get the full effect.
The same technique as an Aero but the outcome is on a whole different level. The melting honeycomb is delicious – but leaves an oddly sore feeling on the tongue.
A lunch box (or snap tin) staple for those of us who were sent to school with packed lunches, the best way to eat these is nibbling off the chocolate around the edges before eating the biscuit.
Similar to the above, except getting the chocolate off without the biscuit is much more of a challenge.
