“ Brand: Morrisons / Type: Coins „
I got my sisters a bag of these chocolate coins from Morrisons yesterday because they had been dead good while we were shopping and I thought they deserved a treat. They are 79p a bag but you get quite a lot in the bag and that's about the same price as everywhere.
The quality of the chocolate was a lot better than I thought, the coins are made of solid milk chocolate and like other chocolate coins are covered in stuff gold foil to make them look like proper coins.
The chocolate is quite soft and that's good because some of the coins are quite big and that makes them easier for little children to bite in half or into pieces. When you put one of the coins into your mouth I bet you'll be surprised at how creamy and smooth the chocolate is, I don't like Morrisons own brand stuff much and wasn't expecting these chocolates to be as nice as they was.
I could obviously tell that the chocolate wasn't Cadburys or any of the big brands, but for own brand supermarket chocolate it's proper tasty. I think most of these gold chocolate coins all taste more or less the same and these are no worse than any of them. Actually I think they're deffo nicer than some my mum brought from Aldi last week because they had a weird powdery flavour and I didn't think they were very nice.
These ones melt nice in my mouth and have got a yummy rich flavour as they're melting, the texture and flavour is creamy and the taste of chocolate is mega strong.
Another thing worth mentioning is that they are easy to unwrap, the ones I told you about from Aldi needed an engineering degree to get into them but the 2 halves of foil comes away dead easy from these Morrisons ones and even my 2 year old sister could unwrap them herself with hardly any help!
Well, you know when Christmas is coming when you start seeing bags of Chocolate Gold Coins everywhere you go! When I was doing my top-up weekly shopping, I saw a bag of these in Morrisons, right next to the conveyor belt. They probably put them here for impulse buying and it certainly works with me! They only cost me 80p per bag, I could probably get them cheaper somewhere else, but if I didn't get them then, I would have forgotten!
The Morrisons Chocolate Gold Coins look like any other bag of chocolate gold coins (at the end of the day, how can they make them look any different? It just wouldn't be the same!)
The bag (which is that awful gold netting that you can never get into without scissors, like what they put oranges in!) has about 18-20 coins, in all different sizes (70grams worth). Each gold coin has lovely milk chocolate in. To get to the chocolate you just need to peel off the gold wrapper which is in 2 pieces, the top and the bottom. This is the tricky part, as little fingers can't open them so its up to us mums and dads to get them opened and give them to our children without eating them first! Thats the hardest bit ... having to give it away when opened!
It does state on the back of the label attached to the bag that the product contains soya and milk (it's milk chocolate!!!!) and that they were produced in a factory which uses nut and peanut ingredients, so this is NOT a good product to give to someone with nut allergies.
Even though I am 23, and have a 3yr old son, I still have a bag of these off my mum and dad every year in my stocking! And it is one of the first things I put in my son's stocking every year and will continue to do so as long as he wants them!
