Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Mars "New Sweet!" Revels Confirmed sighting: Mars "New Sweet!" Revels
Posted: 17:28 Mon 19-Jul-2004. Location: Morrisons, Sheffield. Nutritional unusualness: Milk chocolate contains vegetable fats in addition to cocoa butter.
"charl" reports: whilst in Morrisons looking for Banoffeeade, I noticed these overly excitably packaged Revels. The new flavour is very mysterious until you turn the packet over and see the fifth greatest ingredient is now raisins. Boring! When will this raisin invasion end? As a side note, the caramels now seem to be harder than diamonds. An in-packet chemical reaction with the raisins, or something more sinister?

...Cheers for this "charl", though - without wanting to get into Milton Jones "Russian Roulette" gag territory - what are the flavours now? The usual ones (Malteser, orange, coffee, peanut, caramel, Minstrel), plus raisin? Or has one of the originals been mysteriously "disappeared"? In other chocolatey cheer: The Grocer has reported that Cadbury will be facing off against Nestle's Christmas contenders with a Roses Luxury Collection of milk, white and dark chocolates (4.99) and a "new range of boxed bite-sized offerings" Flake Moments (3.99) - while, in the shorter term, they hope to take on the constantly moving target offered by Nestle's Kit Kat in September with a 39p Dairy Milk Wafer bar of their own.

Comment: i thought the raisins were just an addition, but come to think of it, i don't recall seeing any peanuts. oh, now i'm confused...

Comment: I've just had a pack and can confirm that they have nicked the peanuts,and they were my favourite.

Comment: So are there any horrible ones left in Revels now? Is coffee still in there? If peanut and coffee are both gone, the idea of Revels Russian Roulette is dead, which would be a sad cultural loss on one hand, but might make me buy Revels on the other.

Comment: Also, if it's so funny and great to deliberately put shit sweets that everyone hates into the packet, why not go the whole hog and make every 10th raisin one a mouse poo or something? Maybe you could do limited editions where one in every 10,000 packets had a chocolate-coated cyanide capsule in it, and your next of kin got a holiday to Disneyland?

Comment: Look you lot, why does everyone go on about the foulness of the coffee revels? They're by far my favourite. I wish you could buy them separately. But peanut are my second favourite! The caramel are rubbish and I'd be happy to lose them. Grr..

Comment: Yes, there was definelty a coconut one, they was lovely and I got very excited when I saw a new sweet had been added thinking they may have brought the Coconut one back BUT NO, they added a disgusting raisen AND took out the PEANUTS. Terrible, I probably wont ever buy a packet again as I never liked the coffee & orange anyway!

Comment: Of course, you young people with your transistors might find the idea of raisin Revels all very new and modern, but those of us who recall the start of the last decade hold in our minds, if not our hands, the blue packets of Fruit and Nut Revels which thrived for one summer before being dropped by Mars on the grounds that they were a bit rubbish, actually. Don't even get me started on what may or may not have been in them... perhaps we are being softened up to make ready for their return?

They should have done away with coffee ones -euurghh!

Comment: revels need a little more variety. I suggest a raspberry ruffle type center, possibly a truffle, bring back the peanut and the coconut fillings, and possibly add another little delight - a good old fashioned fudge. these would sell for sure.

Comment: Where are the peanuts?? They compliment all the other REVELS! You get a load of orange and coffee all soft and very very sweet and nothing to contrast!! Who thought that rasins were a better idea! Maybe, just maybe it's a little bit cheaper for Masterfoods to use rasins than think of a new idea. Peaunts are not expensive. "Peaunts" Thats where the expression comes from!

What does the panel say?

Comment: Coffee one certainly there since the late Seventies, making it the sweet that you were always cautious when being offered - play safe and go for the obvious malteser/minstrel ones, or play for big prize of orange/peanut and risk inadvertent coffee?

A friend is convinced that only perverts and strange people who talk to her on trains buy bags of Revels, and there's something in that. Why don't they just take the coffee one out? Why do McDonalds keep putting gerkhins in their burgers - do they just like making British people get sauce and onions on their fingers when fishing it out?

Comment: Yeah "jb", I like them all. I was thinking of new ones last night actually. Maybe some classics like Peanut butter, biscuit, Mint toffee or White chocolate. Then some more "adventurous" flavours like Lemon curd, Dark chocolate&Chilli or butterscotch.

Maybe that's just me wanting to screw with well respected flavours though. I've wanted to see new Fruit Pastille flavours for a long time.

Comment: The only problem with mint is that the mint flavoured one would impose its flavour on all the others. Still I like the sound of the peanut butter one. And why shouldn't we mess about with well respected flavours?

Cherry, Passionfruit or Watermelon Fruit Pastilles would be awesome.

Comment: There WAS a coconut REVEL many years ago. It was removed because some of the coconut flavour was transferred to the other ones in the packet. The Peanut REVEL was removed to avoid any risk of cross-contamination when the production line had to move to a site alongside other lines which are "Nut Free"

Comment: so the peanut revel was removed to allow people with nut allergies to eat chocolate. I am quite impressed by this. And those of you who miss the peanut revel can always just buy chocolate covered peanuts and throw them in the revels bags

Comment: While it is true that M&Ms were only launched in the UK in the mid 1980s it is also true that in the USA the aforementioned slogan was used for the M&Ms brand and has been used since 1954. Which is waaay before Minstrels appeared on the British market. Rationing was still on for Pete's sake.

Comment: not that the wikipedia is necessarily hugely reliable, but they claim that it was both M&Ms *and* Minstrels (formerly Treets)...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M&M's

"In the United Kingdom Peanut M&M's were known as Treets until 1990. Additionally, Toffee Treets were also available for some time. The chocolate versions were not introduced until the brand became M&M's. This was partly to do with the market dominance of the similar candy Nestlé Smarties which made competing under anything but a very high profile brand difficult, with the added risk of reducing sales of the existing Treets brand. Though Treets used the same "melt in your mouth not in your hand" slogan in the UK in the 1970s, this was transferred to Minstrels when the Treets brand was dropped."

Comment: I have a sad tail to tell,going fron Ipswich to Liverpool by coach on about a 9 and a half hour journey i found myself hungry so i went to one of the food vending machines when i stopped at Birmingham so i got myself a packet of revels ,i got back onto the coach to continue the rest of my journey reading my book and opened the packet and noticed the chocs seemed a little white and dusty but i thought that's OK ,i started eating them and i thought they tasted a little odd but i still put another in my gob o make sure but the next one tasted quit bad too then i put a little one in my mouth i hadn't seen a chocolate like that in the pack before and it really didn't taste very good i was expecting toffee so i took a swig of my drink and pulled out a minstrel style chot then i noticed it was only half a minstrel choc i turned it over both ways and noticed little teeth marks on both sides and that made me feel a little sick thinking what it could have been that had been tucking into the chocolates ,i inspected the packet and could see any chew marks.when i got home i told my sister what had happened and she said the same thing happened to her 2 years before.

Comment: Galaxy Counters had several different packets featuring not just a giraffe (Geoffrey Giraffe) but also Olly Owl, Percy Pelican, and Clive the Camel.

Anyone else remember them? There may've been another character too, like a stork or something, which was similar to the pelican, but maybe I just imagined that one!

Comment: I have just bought a couple of bags of Revels to assess this evening. I am leaning towards the raisins being a BAD idea but I am trying to keep an open mind. Indeed there were once coconut revels though my wife disbelieves me, so thanks for the confirmation (a million quid to me, hurra!). Also, there was for a short period Lemon flavoured revels (just like the orange ones only yellow and lemony). They were really rank. Also the chcoloate disks ARE NOT minstrels, they are a complete different confection.

Comment: Well how disapointing - revels have taken away the peanut and replaced with a raisin! At first I thought this to be for all those unfortunate people with a nut allegery but, No as in the ingrediants it says that revels still contain traces of Peanuts - so why oh why have they removed the Peanut??? rather that just adding a rasin??? Very very disapointed with Revels!!!!! Please PLEASE bring back the peanut.

Raisin revels are rubbish - bring back the peanut.

Comment: Most revels are now rubbish, compared to those on sale back in the late 1960's. In those days revels guzzlers had six wonderful flavours to choose from, which included Orange Cream, Coconut, Turkish Delight, (actually congealed cherry jam), Toffee, Peanut and Chocolate (the flat button). How times change.

Any guesses on what the new mystery flavour will be? I'm thinking it's going to be a cookie/biscuit one, lke Cadbury's Strollers used to have.

Comment: In the Revel Timeline, these are the flavours that Mars has taken out:

- Evicted coconut / replaced with coffee (early 1980s maybe?)

- Evicted peanut / replaced with raisin (mid 2000s)

(Funny how the two most recent replacements are also the two most loathed.) I can't remember the turkish delight ones, they must be before my time.

Enough with all the pandering to people with nut allergies - if they have any sense none of them have ever eaten Revels anyway. Bring back the nutty ones!!!

Which is a bugger when u hate coffee cos they look the same, I bite a little bit of choc off 2 check which it is 1st, then I used 2 give all the coffee ones 2 my mum when I lived at home haha, now they get resigned 2 the bin, new sweets will prob go the same way but never mind, will update once I have eaten.

Comment: Revels need a major relaunch in my opinion, possibly with every flavour either improved or changed. The quality of the individual sweets would not be acceptable if they were stand alone - they only get away with it since they are part of a selection of flavours.
