Ferrero Rocher’s ‘aspirational’ chocolate for working-class people has sparked controversy.

A woman claimed on Mumsnet that her mother-in-law said Ferrero Rocher chocolates are ‘aspirational’ for working-class people, sparking a heated debate.

Ferrero Rocher chocolates have sparked a heated debate after it was claimed that they are ‘aspirational’ for working-class people.

A woman claimed on Mumsnet that her mother-in-law made the remark while looking at Ferrero Rocher towers.

And it sparked a debate on the forum about which chocolates are working for the middle and upper classes.

“Therefore – lightheartedly – tell me which chocolates you view as typically middle class?” she wrote.

Hotel Chocolat, Green andamp; Black’s, and Lindt were dubbed’middle class’ by Mumsnet users, while Cadbury’s, After Eights, and Thorntons were dubbed ‘working class.’

Meanwhile, high-end labels like Charbonnel Et Walker and Prestat were regarded as belonging to the upper crust.

Mumsmet users disagreed with the mother-in-law’s assessment of Ferrero Rocher, claiming that they were only for the lower classes.

WC [working class]– Roses, Quality Street, Thornton’s, Black Magic, Heroes, Celebrations, Ferrero Rocher, After Eights, according to one Mumsnet user.

“Guylian,” says the character.

“Deffo Green andamp; Black [is middle class], as well,” one person added.

I’d say they were one of the first middle-class chocolates, paving the way for all the others?”

“I got some Guylian seahorse things for Christmas – I know, I used to think they were pretty classy, but they’re in all the cheapy shops now (so I’ve heard…) I tried them and they were way too sweet, and I’ve got a pretty sweet tooth,” said a third.

“I’m WC [working class]with WC tastes, love Galaxy Caramel, Fry’s Turkish Delight, or a Cadbury’s Creme Egg,” a fourth added.

Green and Blacks, Thorntons, and Lindt are among my favorite chocolates, so they could easily fit into the WC category.”
