SALTY Ritz crackers are great, especially with cheese. But encased in chocolate?

Surprisingly good, it turns out. Cadbury has launched a pair of snack sized bars, each sandwiching four chunks of creamy classic Dairy Milk between mini biscuits.

There’s the predictably great LU sweet biscuits and the more out-there savoury Ritz version. We loved them both  - and they’ve got a great response online from celebs like Ellie Goulding, Billie Faiers, Peaches Geldof and Ollie Locke.

In honour of the Dairy Milk/Ritz mash-up, here are some foods which work well with chocolate...and some that don’t.

The Winners

The cereal’s pretty ‘meh’ on its own, but cover the golden flakes in chocolate and they are real winners.

Healthy snacks supercharged with a chocolate coating.

Soft fruit

Bananas, strawberries, cherries. Just Yes.

The line of great chocolate covered biscuits is a long one: the Hobnob, the digestive, even the Rich Tea. Has there been a bad chocolate biscuit?

Better yet, marshmallow AND biscuit covered in chocolate. Teacake, we salute you.

The Losers

There may be some exceptions here, but certainly the chocolate sprout, onion, garlic and carrot are aberrations.

It has been established that chocolate and salt work, but bacon? Really?

If these ever get passed round at a party I’m at, ‘I’m on a diet’, k?
