Since I became a member of Dooyoo it has not only been an extremely enjoyable experience writing my reviews. In addition it has highlighted to me just how much chocolate I actually consume. I was looking at my previous reviews and I have written several on the scrummy subject of chocolate. I have to say in my defence however that I do get given a lot of the chocolate stuff from patients. I tend to collect the packaging however and store it at home until I decide to write a review on the items in question. So just to continue with my trend heres another one. The product this time is Thorntons Classics Chocolates.
These chocolates come wonderfully packaged in a super blue coloured box. The Thorntons logo is sported in a contrasting gold colour on the top with the wording "Classics". It also states that these are a collection of timeless favourite from the Thorntons range which comprise of Milk, White and Dark varieties. The reverse of the packaging contains information on product ingredients, nutritional information and a picture of each chocolate with its name and contents. The chocolates are displayed inside the box on a brown chocolate tray as with most other chocolate boxes.
I believe that this particular product is a smaller version of a larger box of Classics also available to buy at Thorntons. It is a 100g box which contains eight different chocolates from the range. I have tried each and every one of these and although I am not as keen on white and dark chocs as a general rule and normally stick to my favourite milk variety I have to say that I found it difficult to find fault with any of these. The chocolates in this box are made from West African cocoa beans, which apparently are primarily Forastero and Trinitario varieties.
The selection available is as follows.
Strawberry Velvet: This has a soft centre which is infused with the lovely flavour of summer strawberries. Delicious and one of my favourites.
Chocolate Dream: Lovely smooth chocolate outer which has an even more chocolately gooey soft centre.
Butter Fudge: This is exceptionally creamy fudge which is made with butter and milk. Which is lavishly covered in thick chocolate.
Coconut Paradise: A velvety coat of chocolate draped over tender coconut sprinkled with nuggets of sweet coconut.
Creamy Coffee: This was my least favourite of the box however it wasn't terrible however I am not a lover of coffee. It has a double cream soft centre laced with aromatic roasted coffee.
Lemon Parfait: Zingy soft and luscious lemon centre covered in chocolate.
Hazelnut Praline: My favourite of the bunch chocolate draped around a smooth hazelnut praline.
Layered Chocolate Classic: Triple layer of milk, white and dark chocolate. Lovely melts in the mouth.
I appreciate that some people find the Thorntons range quite rich and a bit of an acquired taste however I would suggest before wasting money on a huge box why not try a 100g mini version like this one to make sure that you like them as they are not the cheapest. I love these and will certainly be hinting to my hubby for some more in the future. Delicious and highly recommended. As these were a gift unfortunately I am unaware of the cost.
