    Wonderball!

    There is not nearly enough chocolate in the world which has toys inside.

    Nestle Wonder Ball! Sometimes it's nice to have a surprise, and it was always fun collecting things as a kid:d

    A tough choice... I think I'm going to vote for Marble just because it's more unique. A Wonder Ball, as far as I remember of it, was a lot like a Kinder egg and (as far as I'm aware) you can still get your hands on them, whereas I don't think there's anything much like Marble still being sold.

    Marble! Such a tasty chocolate, given it's Cadburys who can be surprised? I don't remember the wonderball but I know Nestle rarely steps up to the Cadbury mark..

    Yes, they won that round, but they lost a later round and so are no longer in the competition (they are in the list of 'round losers' in the first post). And even if they were still in the competition, in this round you're supposed to be voting for Wonder Ball or Marble, not anything else.

    NESTLE WONDER BALL WINS!



    The Wonder Ball is actually a terribly-fated beastie.

    It began life as the Magic Ball, and was essentially a ball of Nestle chocolate with a Disney toy inside - AWESOME! Then, some kids started EATING the toys, and Nestle was sued. Nestle was forced to either alter the Magic Ball or face swift justice. So, they changed it to the WONDERBALL (which is actually the original name - though "Magic Wonder Ball" sounds a bit too much) and replaced the toys with fruit sweet shapes. Even with popular licences behind it (I mean, check it out! An ARMAGEDDON wonderball?) - even Spongebob versions bombed - it couldn't keep any sales going, and Nestle axed it.

    Believe it or not the Kinder Surprise is still contraband in several countries - they are illegal to sell in the USA for the very reason that children love to eat toys, apparently.

    Kids are crap.

    NEXT SET HAS COMMENCED! TIME FOR YOUR WINNERS TO BATTLE ONCE MORE!

    CADBURY WISPA BITE fights CADBURY SNAPS!






    Cadbury versus Cadbury in this civil war of chocolate! Aeration or Wafer-thinness? Which technique of making your chocolate that little bit lighter is best? Which one floats all the way up to the heavens for you?

    ...I know, tenuous, tenuous linking there.

    Tough.

    I'm going to go for snaps, because they're essentially chocolate Pringles, and world is a better place with their existence.

    It's got to be Snaps for me. They're my favourite thing in the competition and the only reason I'd rather Amicelli win is because there are versions of Snaps available, but of course I'd love the original to return.
