The popular Christmas treat has been the topic of debate on Twitter this week.

We're getting closer and closer to Christmas, which means various debates over festive traditions tend to rear their ugly heads.

Another named the orange chocolates as her top choice.

However Mandi seems to like them all...

For those not as unfussy, the revelation came that you can order a tin of chocolates from the brand with your prefered flavour!

Though many got stuck into the quintessentially British conversation, there were a just as many who'd sooner have a box of Roses or Celebrations...
