“ Brand: Gourmet Chocolate Pizza Company „
I was thrilled to find out that I had won a competition with prezzybox.com, a 7 inch chocolate pizza........well, the images of this pizza that sprung into my head first of all, were, slightly bizarre, however, after looking up exactly what a chocolate pizza was I got rather excited to receive this item.
Now, I did wait about 3 weeks for this delivery, but, as I am not a paying customee and had won this as a prize, I may not have been there top priority, so would advise you check whichever site you purchase this from as to the standard delivery times and would not take this as their norm.
The normal RRP from prezzybox is £12.95 for the 7 inch version, they also have 10 inch version available, and a father day version.
Here is a brief description from their website:
Crafted from the highest quality Belgian Chocolate, the Chocolate pizza is a mouthwatering indulgence for the chocoholic who, bored of traditional chocolate bars, likes something a little different.
Delivered in a realistic take away box, the Chocolate Pizza is available in 7" and 10" versions and like the traditional pizza is cut into 8 slices - perfect for sharing.
The chocolate pizza is available in 4 yummy variations: Namely:
Honeycomb and Marshmallow
Jelly Bean Jumble
Shelf life of each item is 6 months, except for the Honeycomb and Marshmallow which has a shelf life of 1 month only.
I had opted to have the heavenly honeycomb, which is described as follows:
*Pizza Base: Belgian milk chocolate
*Pizza Toppings: Milk and white chocolate coated honeycomb balls,
vanilla fudge, and finished off with milk chocolate curls
*Suitable for a vegetarian diet
So, how was it I hear you all cry, well, firstly, the presentation. It was delivered in a brown box, and originally did not know what it was, so I excitedly opened the brown box, inside, I was greeted with a pizza style box with the wording the gourmet chocolate pizza company on the top. This is a conventional pizza style box, so i lifted the lid to reveal a thick red packaging paper, surrounded and folded over the pizza. Once that was folded out the way, the pizza sits in a clear plastic case, with a cellophane lid covering it making it air tight. It did look really good, and I think it makes a novel gift to have one of these delivered instead of the usual flowers or chocolates perhaps?
Next, the taste test. As I opened the pack, I could see the pizza was divided into 8 equal pizzas slices, perfect for sharing....but, this is chocolate, and Kosma doesn't share chocolate. I picked up my first slice, this is approximately 1.5 cm thick, I bite in, and have a lovely smooth milk chocolate taking over my tast buds, a second bite reveals some of the vanilla fudge, lovely texture to this, and still, surrounded by the lovely belgian milk chocolate, a third bite, and as well as the belgian milk chocolate I have a white chocolate malteser, the milk chocolate shavings on top also provide a slightly different texture to the pizza, even though it is same chocolate, it does seem to melt in your mouth, and is so smooth, it is of a good quality. There is not an abundance of maltesers and vanilla fudge, you will find a malteser on each slice, and a piece of fudge seems to be every other slice, so perhaps a little more maltesers or fudge may be good, but then may not look as pleasing to the eye if too many were on it. After enjoying my 3rd slice however, I do feel I should leave it and continue with it another night, best not to gorge on it all in one night.
This is such a novel idea, the way it is packaged and delivered, I think it is an excellent gift. At £12.95 it is not something I would buy for myself, but as a gift is a contender for a few people. Not the cheapest chocolate, but then, the quality of it is not the cheapest either.
Only problem is, who is going to buy me the other 3 varieties to test out? Ahem....birthday soon people :o) ha ha.
