Advantages: Good quality chocolate, beautifully presented.
Disadvantages: May be too strong tasting for some people.
I received these chocolates for my birthday, but the pink version!
I hadn't really heard of the makers before, but guessed from the packaging that I was in for a treat.
Packaging; A wonderful thick cardboard circular box that was coloured a dreamy pearlescent pink.The box Is suitable to keep for afterwards to store things in, I currently have mine as a sort of ornament - but I have a bit of a think for packaging.
Inside you are greated with seven luxury chocolates all sat in their own little crimped casing - all look good enough to eat, and perfectly spherical.
The chocs in this case were dusted in a beautiful pink powder - giving them a really girly look (can you see a theme running through my reviews?).
Taste; Having had other champagne truffles from well known chocolatiers, these took my breath away a little - tasting rather strong (not suitable for little people I would say).
The chocolate was delicious however, and the 'Marc de Champagne' truffle centre.. although strong... tasted so silky.
As the chocolates were quickly snaffled up by members of family, the box became a nice little keepsake from the present and feels such good quality.
The present was well appreciated and I'm sure another candy lover with a taste for the finer things would equally agree.
I am not sure on price as I received it as a gift but I am sure it is reasonable for what you are receiving -
Would definitely eat these again, but most certainly a luxury as even eating one feels naughty. Best to save for a rainy day when you need a lift - and a little kick of champagne. Or would be fab at dinner parties as something to hand around with the drinks!
Summary: Gorgeous chocolates encased in a beautiful box.
