“ Brand: Asda / Type: Milk „
When it comes to buying myself a box of chocolates I find it a real treat and a bit of a luxury so usually I don't! However noticing lately that Asda have started doing very reasonable priced boxes of chocolates for a pound a box I have decided that, that is a very reasonable price and an indulgence I can afford!
I love milk chocolate and I love Brazils so I decided that I should try them against paying out far more for a box of 'Just Brazils'!
The box is a pinkish/reddish colour and inside the brazils comes in a pink metallic, foil bag. On the front of the box there is a photograph of one of the brazils on there and I am told that they are Asda Milk Chocolate Brazils and that they contain no artificial colours, flavours or hydrogenated fat. On the back of the box other information listed includes ingredients and allergy advice being given, there is a full nutritional chart listed and the weight of the chocolates are given (which in this case is 160g and this is the only size I have seen them available to purchase in) and contact details are given for Asda. The box opens to the side and is secure and I do like the fact they come in a sealed bag for freshness too.
What you get is about a dozen (I wasn't so sad to count them lol) oval shaped chocolates. The chocolate is reasonably thick, glossy and obviously milk. Inside there is a whole brazil in each which is of course nutty and thick and it tastes fresh with its skin still on. The nut was great and I love whole nuts and I love the crunchiness these possessed however the chocolate just didn't really taste all that much really. Sure I could detect it was chocolate but it wasn't milky really or creamy and didn't taste thick and or...... rich, it simply tasted light and a bit cheap really.
The only thing good about these was the nuts! Nothing wrong with them but the chocolate flaked off the nut with a bite and was simply a wee bit boring to me sadly! Not the best of cheap chocolates these but not awful...nothing special though sadly!
