Cadbury's Roses Tins

Many a discussion has been had about what used to be in a tin of Cadbury's Roses. Where have all the classic ones gone and can anyone actually work out what they used to be? Sometimes it's easy to confuse them with Quality Street's selection. I used to love eating these because I was greedy and a little bit on the porky side, but now I have to control myself (this will be my first Christmas after losing weight) but I have got to say that it's not that easy when they are reduced to the price of £5 per tin. They are also great to use the tin for storing cakes etc after they have all gone. Thank you Cadbury's for all your efforts.

    According to an article on the internet, there WAS a pineapple creme but only for a short time and only in Australia.

    I thought I was imagining it but the tins really were bigger back in the day. I'd kill for that 2.2kg tin in the pic lol. I'm sure you could fit a modern day tin inside a tin from the 1980s.

    There was certainly a pineapple cream in the 70's 80's I remember them well, best ones by far. The quality of Roses was far better back then!

    there used to be a lemon cream and the tins were much bigger. I'm sure we had about 20 lemon creams left from one tin!

    There was never a pineapple flavour cream. What I do remember from the 70's and 80's tins were miniature dairy milk and bournville and a rather nasty coconut choc in a green wrapper

    Tesco's sell Roses in a tin, I bought one at the weekend :-) The bournvilles are in Heroes and it seems these only come in boxes now, not tins. I was over the moon when the coffee creams were phased out, as they were the closest thing to eating poo in my opinion! I wish they would get rid of the other creams as well-I'm sure Cadbury's did for a while.

    They were far better, more varitety not just truffles. If you want truffles you'd buy them. flavours included strawaberry, orange and coffee creams, their delicious caramels which are not the same now, the chocolate log witha sort of truffle centre, the hazlenut whirl and hazlenut in caramel. I no longer buy them as they don't offer a good slection Sue

    What's all this about Roses without the tin? I just wouldn't buy them! I there some forum i can go on to vent my disgust at this idea? Someone said they used to have pineapple ones; i can 100% say that this is not the case. My dad always got Roses at Christmas throughout the 70's and 80's and they never had pineapple flavour creams. I do remember the coffee ones and i quite liked them. Do they still have Bournville miniatures?

    Don't tell me the roses tins are off the market? We still get them here every Christmas, no shortage at all. I love the fruit fondants!
