Hmmm..

Was it a Terry's Chocolate orange? no, nothing like that

Were the chocolates constructed to resemble a familiar shape / structure / picture or similar? no - you will be very familiar with the idea even if you've never bought one

Snickers, Bountys, Kitkats, Twix, topics, Double Deckers ??

The sum = number of items or financial cost?

Snickers, Bountys, Kitkats, Twix, topics, Double Deckers ?? 'they' could comprise any or all of these

The sum = number of items or financial cost? no to all

The sum:

= the number of people that partook?
= the number of parts that the shape was made from?
= something directly related to the foodstuff?
= something directly related to the structure?

Do we need to establish more about the chocolate bars?
More about the structure?

Blooper alert

As well as the 'structure' there is a further something to find out about the chocolate bars

Do we need to find out exactly what the featured structure is?

Are the size of the choc bars relevant?
Is there anything different from the bars from those normally found on the shop shelves?

Is the structure is a:
star / tree / sled / reindeer ?

Is it an elaborate shape or a simple shape?

star / tree / sled / reindeer ? I've seen them in the shape of a stocking as you suggested earlier, and they may well be in the other forms here

Is it an elaborate shape or a simple shape? the ones I saw were very simple, but there is a name for all of these 'structures' and they've been around since we were kids:)

I sold a lot of interesting stuff in November and early December. I sold quite a few DVD's and books. I sold an antique wooden tray with a painting of a wildlfe scene to a dealer in Japan (where it was originally made about a century ago). I sold some chess books to a chap in Brazil and a pair of silver tongs to a man in Portugal, to name a few :-)

I vaguely remember these things from childhood but I cannot recall a specific name for them.
Is the name essential to the plot?

Hi Lynne! Happy New Year :)

are these selection boxes?
are you referring to the fact that the whole thing costs a lot more than the individual parts added up?

the specific name is not essential, but it is helpful to at least describe what is meant here, so that we can go further. If you can give a description then that would be fine

Hi Hannah! - good to see you :-)

Well Hannah calls them selection boxes. I recall that the choc bars are attached to a piece of card with some thin twine and then covered in some protective netting. The card is in the form of a seasonal shape such as a Christmas stocking?

Either that or the choc bars are simply stuffed into some netting?
