“ Brand: Asda / Type: Truffle „
I adore chocolate and rather often buy a mega large bar of branded chocolate when I'm out and about so when I saw these priced at £1.00 a box and I was about to buy one bar of large chocolate for 59p I decided I must try them. I'd actually had a hard day so was looking forward to sitting down in front of the television to munch on these later that evening in my pj's!
Light brown oblong box and the top of the box is perforated so has a flip top lid to it once opened. On the top of the box I'm told they are Asda Belgian Chocolate, Flaked Capping Truffles and that they contain no artificial colours, flavours or hydrogenated fats and that they are suitable for Vegetarians and there is a picture of the truffles on there too. Other information on the rest of the box includes ingredients and allergy advice (Contains: Milk and soya and make contain traces of nuts and/or seeds), storage advice is given, the weight of the box is stated which is 135g, the best before date is clearly stamped on and contact details for Asda are given. Nice enough, plain and simple box but it does look a bit economy so personally I wouldn't opt to buy these as a gift for someone.
Open up the box and I got 15 roundish brown chocolates covered in white flakes of what is white chocolate. They had a nice chocolaty and coffee smell to them and looked rather pretty however as I munched through them I didn't half get covered in white flaky bits which was a pain!
Taste wise I really did enjoy these.... to start with. I have a habit of eating an entire box of something as I'm a greedy piglet and the first few chocolates I ate were great however I didn't half feel sick by the end of the box and actually did make myself sick. My own fault that though to be fair!
What you get is rich and moist truffles. Teeth sink into the rich milk chocolate and the white flakes melt in the mouth. The texture of these is really fluffy and meltable and really does taste good quality with a hint of creamy coffee to them. For me though these truffles were just a bit messy to deal with and add to that very, very sweet indeed.
All In All?:
Good chocolates just try not eat a whole box in one sitting if you can help it! They are sweet and rich but to me I thought they were a lovely little buy and had I of been offered one by someone else I wouldn't have guessed they cost a mere £1.00 a box at all. If you like sweet and soft milky, creamy and coffee chocolate go for these if not then simply try something else from the range eh lol.
