The coffee ones are horrible. Remember that Revels ad?

Would probably go for the Montelimar as i have no idea what it is.

They all sound pretty horrible in truth.

I don't know if that assortment's available to us across the pond! I could totally do a Clapton and eat 'em all (Ginger Sling aside, maybe) but they'd surely be ruinous to my health (diabetic).

Coffee Dessert for me!

What's the difference between "cream" and "crème" anyways?

''Créme'' is cream in French.

Sure, but what made them use the French spelling? Why is "Cherry Cream" good enough but not "Tangerine Cream"?

(Kinda want to add "…and marmalade skies" after that!)

Maybe to make it sound a bit more posh/sophisticated? I don´t know.

I copied and pasted the words from a lyrics site. I didn't check the actual spelling of cream/creme. Is it accurate?

I wonder which other chocolates were in a Good News box. It would be nice to think of George working out ways to squeeze them into his lyrics.

Well, he made up some of the names himself, didn't he? "Cocoanut Fudge" and maybe some others.

This is all I can find. It's a bit small, but Savoy Truffle and creme tangerine are definitely there. I think it's spelt 'montelimart' too.
