It’s a question we’ve all surely asked at one point or another, and that’s why we’ve thought long and hard to bring you the answers here…
If EFL Championship clubs were chocolates, what would they be?
Leeds Utd would be… a Yorkie
Looks the most solid option of the lot, but you just wonder if a chunk might be missing when you get to the last.
Swansea City would be… a Bounty
Pretty to look at from first glance but the jury’s out on whether it tastes good enough to keep you coming back for more by the end of the bar.
Preston North End would be… a Freddo
Cheap as chips, consistently underrated and completely inoffensive. Try as you might to resist, you find them surprisingly moreish.
West Brom would be… a Toblerone
Full of peaks and troughs from one minute to the next, but one of the classiest operators out there when things click into place.
QPR would be a… Kinder Egg
You don’t go in expecting much but it turns out they might just surprise you.
Nottingham Forest would be… a Dairy Milk
Been around forever and a day and not afraid to show off about it. Still pretty tasty when the mood suits, even if you wouldn’t reach for them first.
Bristol City would be… Quality Street
An assortment that can all too often verge from the sublime to the ridiculous. Frustratingly inconsistent, but the good stuff is up there with the best.
Charlton Athletic would be… a Curly Wurly
Starts off really nice but you just know things might just get a little chewy in the middle.
Sheffield Wednesday would be… a Kit Kat
An established brand always capable of snapping into bits at any moment. Seen better days, but, every now and then, you’re given a fleeting reminder of just how good it can be.
Blackburn Rovers would be… Roses
Filled with plenty of old favourites scattered across the box, but it’s all a bit 1990s.
Birmingham City would be… a Double Decker
Looks a bit of a mess on the inside but proves the doubters wrong by gluing together surprisingly well.
Fulham would be… a Twix
All the elements are in place for this to be a sure-fire winner. However, there’s a nagging feeling deep down that stops you from making it an automatic pick.
Cardiff City would be… a Marathon/Snickers
Attempted a bold re-branding strategy a while back, but everyone preferred the original.
Hull City would be… a Topic
Being honest, you’d kind of forgotten they existed. Still, it’s nice to still see them there from time to time. Doesn’t taste half bad on the odd occasion you give it a go.
Middlesbrough would be… a Drifter
Ever reliable as an option on the shelf, but somehow never quite gets your juices flowing. You worry it might be gathering dust for some time if it doesn’t up its game.
Millwall would be… a Lion bar
Rock hard with plenty of bite, it’s not the most fashionable pick, but one that’s more than capable of punching above its weight against more glamorous rivals.
Brentford would be… Green & Black’s
The connoisseur’s choice and the one you’d recommend to friends to show you have acquired taste. Ultimately, however, you’ll always fall back on the traditional giants.
Derby County would be… a Galaxy Cookie Crumble
To all intents and purposes this should really be a top tier contender, but far too capable of getting messy and dissolving into bits when pressed.
Wigan Athletic would be… a Mars
Best eaten straight away, as all too susceptible to melting down quickly when travelling.
Reading would be… a Milky Way
Tempting at times but offers no real substance. You suspect the best days could be behind them without some re-invention.
Luton Town would be… an Aero Mint
A little bit green and lightweight when put up against the big boys.
Barnsley would be… Rolos
You can’t help but warm to them, but a little bit too soft-centred to be completely satisfying.
Stoke City would be… Revels
The ideal package on first inspection, but when you bite in can leave an unpleasant taste in the mouth.
Huddersfield Town would be… a Flake
You really want it be better than it is, but you’re alive to the danger of its rapid disintegration under the slightest bit of pressure.
