THE verdict is in: Celebrations have the least variety of any choc box but are also the best value, alongside Quality Street.
And Quality Street’s green triangle, Celebrations' Galaxy Caramels, Heroes' Wispas and Roses' Truffles are the rarest item in each box.
The annual chocolate tubs investigation by Which? also found a concerning level of unpredictability in the nation's favourite choc boxes.
Mars' Celebrations have the least variety with only eight different chocolates, while Heroes are the pick for you if you like Eclairs and Fudges.
And in terms of value, it's Celebrations and Quality Street which come out on top.
A 650g box of the Mars selection costs just £4 at Tesco, an average of 62p per 100g.
That's an identical price per 100g to a 650g tub of Quality Street at the same supermarket.
The worst value is a 240g box of Celebrations at Tesco, which cost £3 – a pricey £1.25 per 100g.
Heroes and Roses are in between, both costing £1.04 per 100g for their smallest 290g varieties at Tesco (£3) and £1 per 100g for their massive 800g versions.
Which? recommends going for a 600g or 650g tub for the best value.
Nut lovers should go for Celebrations as Which? found an average of 12 Snickers per tub.
The Quality Street tubs tested had more pink fudges than any other variety, if that floats your boat.
And Heroes had more double deckers and creme eggs than any other chocolate, averaging eight of each.
We reported on the controversy around Quality Street's underrepresentation of green triangles, with just four appearing in some fans' boxes.
Heroes' advent calendar caused outrage yesterday when buyers found Creme Eggs behind the first door.
Our review of all the chocolate advent calendars is here, if you're late to the party.
