  • Used to like Violet Crumble. Now don't because of the teeth-rubbing issue. Eeek. Makes me shiver to think about it.

    Plethora, you can; they just don't appear when you edit a comment unless, after you submit the edited comment, you refresh the page. :)

  • I actually prefer violet crumble to crunchie, because crunchie has that thicker, chewier stuff at the edges, and that's what gets stuck in my teeth. Whereas violet crumble is, well, crumblier.

  • I can confirm that Violet Crumble gets stuck in your teeth VERY easily.

  • Someone's half-eaten Crunchie.

    Honeycomb is the stuff in Crunchies. It's yellower, denser and gets stuck in your teeth more easily. IMHO.

  • What wikipedia calls sponge toffee is called honeycomb here, but that's the stuff that is in Crunchies and Violet Crumbles (yum, btw) which is not the same as what's in Maltesers.

    Edit: Cross section of a Malteser.

  • wikipedia calls it sponge toffee although it is commonly called honeycomb in UK.

  • Honeycomb? Isn't it malt? Hence the name maltesers?

    August 17, 2008

  • Nothing to do with with Maltese, although they do sell them there. More like malt-teasers.

  • A kind of sweet (US candy) in the form of a sphere of confectioners' honeycomb coated in chocolate
