Thorntons Classic Collection
Advantages: Yummy, lots of variety
I recently had a birthday and was lucky enough to receive not one, not two, but three boxes of Thorntons Classic Collection chocolates. My friends must know me very well and know that I love a box of chocolates so I was very happy with my presents and of course with the Thorntons box as in my opinion they make a really lovely box of chocolates.
The beauty about this box of chocolates is that you have a little something of everything in it to suit everyone's taste although I don't share my chocolates!! The box comes with two identical layers of chocolates which is nice as if you have your favourite out of the top layer you know there is another one waiting for you on the bottom layer!! The chocolates are individually presented in a plastic tray and then the box itself is cardboard and the top just slides off from the bottom of the box so they are easy to get in and out of. I like the fact that you can put the top back on as this keeps them fresh and out of harms way although its likely I will eat them all before they have a chance to go bad! There are two chocolates that are in wrappers, the soft caramel in the red wrapper and the orange zest in the orange wrapper but apart from that all the chocolates are unwrapped, ready to eat!
On the front of the box the chocolates are described as, "A delicious collection of Thorntons classic favourites including Caramel, Fudge, Fruit and Nut centres covered in milk, dark and white chocolate. All the chocolate is wonderful and creamy and very tasty.
To quote an article I read, "Thorntons is a UK chocolate company established by Joseph William Thornton in 1911. Thorntons today is a £180 million turnover company with 360 shops and cafes and 230 franchises together with internet, mail order and commercial services. Since the takeover of Cadburys by US company Kraft, Thorntons is now the largest independent chocolate and confectionery company in the United Kingdom. It is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE Fledgling Index."
Thorntons are probably my favourite high street chocolate company as I find they always make a box of good quality chocolates which taste great and always want you coming back for more.
I will now go on to list a few of my favourites from this box:
Strawberry velvet - A silky soft fondant of real strawberries folded with double cream covered in milk chocolate.
Orange Zest - A zingy centre combining delicate orange peel pieces and a luscious orange preserve smothered in dark chocolate.
Honeycomb crunch - Velvety milk chocolate bursting with crisp honeycomb and sugar-roasted hazelnut croquant.
Thankfully there is a chocolate guide included with this box as there is really only one I don't like, the Turkish Delight chocolate so its good to see what this looks like and be able to avoid it!!
All in all an amazingly delicious box of chocolates.
