Chocolate filled sprouts.

I'm presuming these aren't real Brussels Sprouts filled with chocolate. That would be just too gross.

My OH saw, and photographed, these in the supermarket today.

Obviously, not everyone as otherwise they wouldn't be left over from Christmas time.

On the other hand, assuming it is good chocolate, why not? People who don't like the veg might eat the chocolate version.

@fitheach
if they're like the snowmen then they are really mediocre. it still doesn't make sense in terms of marketing at all tho

@duckfs
My OH didn't buy them as we don't really eat chocolate. So, I don't know if they are any good or not.

Does the same company make chocolate snowmen?

I can kinda see the logic of the idea, as sprouts are very much associated as a veg to go with turkey. We already have chocolate Santas and reindeers. Maybe Lindt have these trademarked.

@fitheach
I'm only guessing off the packaging, the generic snowmen are packaged the same. how much were they?

@duckfs
The price was on the shelf, and that wasn't included in the photo.

I did an online search and lots of retailers are selling chocolate sprouts. For example, Iceland have 75g net for normal price £1, now reduced to 50p.

@fitheach
it seems to be pretty decent value then, thanks!
