To celebrate the end of Lent, the passing of abstinence and the return of gastronomic excess to the table, AnOther invited the team and contributors to nominate their favourite sweet, the one they've been dreaming of for the past forty days and nights, the one they can't resist at the newsagent counter...

Strawberry Bonbons nominated by fashion editor Ellie Grace Cumming... "They remind me of the being at school and going to the school shop at break time with my friends, we would all get a different 50p bag of sweets and swap."

Raspberry and Blackberry Jellies nominated by commissioning editor Laura Bradley... "They're the pick 'n' mix classic – soft jellies with a coating of sugar bobbles. There's something really satisfying about the way the bobbles fall off whilst chewing."

Kinder Schoko-Bons nominated by deputy fashion editor Nell Kalonji... "Try them and you'll know why. And I love the fact that they make out they are actually good for you, with all the calcium..."

Cola Cubes nominated by Thea Charlesworth

Cola Cubes nominated by photographic producer Thea Charlesworth... "They taste nothing like cola, are solid sugar and last forever with that chewy inside."

Reese's Peanut Butter Cups nominated by photo editor Zoe Maughan.. "I take each bite like it is my last, and I eat all three in the pack in a row with not one breath in-between.  Pure indulgence and satisfaction. The chocolate is a perfect thickness, and the peanut butter is excitingly sugary and generous. They're so dirty, but so good."

Refreshers nominated by deputy editor Laura Allsop... "Delicious pastel-hued discs, I could eat a whole pack in one sugar-high-inducing go. Just not the green ones."

Nerds nomianted by fashion editor Agata Belcen. "I like food you can play with."

Salted liquorice nominated by Ananda Pellarin

Salted liquorice nominated by AnOther columnist Ananda Pellerin... "Not always a popular choice, but loved in the Nordic countries where they take their sweets seriously. I like the challenge of the astringent-like flavour, especially in the extra hard variety. You have to work for this stuff. Tough love."

"Salted liqourice – Not always a popular choice, but loved in the Nordic countries where they take their sweets seriously."

Cadbury's Mini-Eggs nominated by AnOther columnist Natasha Fraser-Cavassoni... "I love their size, shape and speckled sugar coated shell."

Prestat Sea Salt Caramel Truffles nominated by editorial assistant Tish Wrigley... "Totally decadent, these are the only chocolates for which I can override my natural inclination for gluttony, and savour just one at a time."

Peanut Butter M&Ms nominated by fashion coordinator Mhairi Graham... "Partly because of their exclusivity in the UK, or perhaps just because they taste so good."

Parma Violets nominated by Emma Sutton

Parma Violets nominated by marketing director Emma Sutton... "They are so pretty and floral, yet super tasty and more-ish."

Sherbert Dib Dabs nominated by AnOther writer Isabella Burley... "I would have one every day after school and come home with sherbet all over my uniform!"

Fizzy Strawberry Laces nominated by editorial assistant Daisy Woodward... "They're sweet and sour in equal measure and fun to eat as they can be enjoyed in a variety of ways: rolled up into a snail shape, for example – my personal favourite. Or, for the romantic at heart, shared á la Lady and the Tramp."
