“ Brand: Tesco „
My mum ALWAYS buys me a box of Guylian seashells at Xmas, this year everyone had gone barmy on them though and there wasn't any in Tesco when she went to do the Xmas eve shopping so she got me a box of these own brand seashells and a bar of Guylian. I was happy enough though because eating the Guylian at the same time as these I can see they taste more or less the same.
The chocolates are smaller than the Guylian ones but that doesn't matter because it means you get more in a box! lol They look wicked and are shaped like all different seashells, they all taste the same but I think the different shapes makes the chocolates seem more interesting.
Each chocolatehas got a praline filling and is covered in chocolate that is marbled with milk and white chocolate, I'm glad the milk chocolate is the strongest because I'm not mad keen on white chocolate but the little bit of white that does come through is quite nice.
The praline filling is madly delish. It's mega sweet with a wicked nutty flavour, it dissolves in your mouth and is lush when you suck it instead of munching the whole chocolate up quick.
You get about 25 chocolates in the box but they're proper sickly after just a couple so you'll get a few days out of a box, I don't get sick on chocolate that often but I deffo felt queesy after overdoing these at Xmas.
The only difference with these and Guylian is these are a bit sweeter and hit the chocolate spot immediately. The over all taste and texture of them is about the same so deffo recommended by me!
Another thing is that the box they come in is nice,I think my mum was a bit embarressed giving me own brand chocolates but I didn't mind getting them as a present and would deffo buy them for someone else.
