They then worked out the average of each chocolate inside.

Spokesman Lisa Barber said: “A box of chocolates on the sofa and a Christmas movie is a seasonal ­tradition but you might find yourself fighting over your favourites if there just aren’t enough of them to go around.

“There is a selection box for everyone, so make sure you get the one best suited to the tastes of your household.”
