Disadvantages: Expensive, too much wrapping, too rich at times
These timeless luxurious chocolates are a must for any dinner party or important occasion! I was compelled to buy a box since they were on special offer at Sainsbury's and I needed a little indulgence.
The packaging is of a very high quality, the thick plastic lid is embossed with a divine diamond pattern, yet underneath are a sea of golden globes. Your eyes are fed with a feast of gold - I love what I see!
The honeycomb golden plastic tray is really sparkly and dazzling, it just oozes luxury! Each of the chocolates are hand packaged and are covered in a wonderful golden foil in a brown/gold paper basket topped off with a oval sticker proudly boasting "FERRERO ROCHER." And rightly!
In this box, you get 24 chocolates, on the side of the golden tray is embossed "Ferrero Rocher" which is extremely classy.
~~~APPEARANCE, TASTE AND TEXTURE~~~
After you've unrevealed the chocolate, you are hit with a lovely aroma of roasted hazelnuts - truly wonderful!
The chocolate sphere is embedded with roasted hazelnuts and when you take a bite you crunch through so many layers, the order from outside in are as follows:
-Milk chocolate surface embedded with chopped roasted hazelnuts
-Whole Hazelnut (the core)
The structure reminds of an edible planet, you feel like a God as your are being treated with utter luxury.
The taste is scrumptious, it is sickly sweet but you get the lovely undertones of hazelnuts - truly delicious. The differently layers complement each other obtaining an indulgent gorgeous textures and tastes!
The nutty flavor is sublime and this is truly the best chocolate on the market!
Since this is a top quality product they are quite pricey and are around £7 for a box of 24, I got my box for £3 so it was a real bargain!
~~~OPINIONS AND CRITICISMS~~~
Despite being quite pricey, these chocolates are nearly perfect products, however there are a few snags.
Firstly there is a lot of packaging so this is not good for the environment and it takes so long to unwrap and eat them!
Secondly, they can be sometimes too sweet and indulgent and a little too rich at times. They are extremely addictive to say the least!
Finally, it is hard to open the plastic lid initially as it is sealed so much with tape.
This is without a doubt the best chocolate I have ever tasted and wouldn't have any reservations in trying it - nut allergy permitting!
The product will entice you serenading on the shelf and you are rewarded with a certificate of quality ensuring the packaging is flawless and perfect!
Summary: A must for chocolate lovers!
