Advantages: Absolutely delicious
Disadvantages: you cannot binge on them because they are quite rich. Sometimes I want quantity over quality!
Marks and Spencer has really pulled something special out of the hat with these chocolates. They are an M&S take on ferrero rocher but in typical M&S style, they aren't just ferror rocher, they are M&S ferrero rocher. In other words, just that little bit better (ok I know you don't think ferrero rocher can be improved upon - I was just as naive before I tried these beauties!) I cannot quite explain just how heavenly they are - you really must try them. They are about £2.50 for a 200g box and so so worth it! Go on, treat yourself! Not convinced? Read on and I will wax lyrical some more about their deliciousness! I just thought I would do a summary initially so anyone who is a chocoholic does not have to waste time reading the whole thing and can just run down to M&S for some wholesome chocolatey goodness!!!
They have a hazelnut and chocolate truffle centre covered in a thin crisps flaky crunchy biscuity type thing and then coated in really good quality chocolate and hazelnuts. Just like a ferrero rocher but with little lines of white chocolate on the outside - just to make them look pretty and to add that little something extra. They probably have less nuts and more chocolate than ferrero rocher but that might just be my imagination.
Nutritional blurb that you probably don't want to know:
Per chocolate (seriously!)
4.6 grams of fat
0.5 grams of fibre
1.1 grams of protein
Ok, I hear what you are thinking, so nutritionally they probably aren't all that, but really, honestly, they taste so good. And even me (a proper pig) cannot eat more than 3 or 4 without feeling sick so they do last a while. At least two days!
FINAL WARNING!!! In case the indirect hints about the hazelnuts I should just explain THIS PRODUCT MAY CONTAIN NUTS!
Summary: Excellent delicious little chocolate treats!
