For Mothers Day earlier this month, my two boys (with a little help from their Dad) decided to treat me to some Thorntons chocolates. I have long been a fan of Thorntons chocolates, although find some of their more well-known collections, such as the Continentals, a little uninspiring. Thankfully, I had dropped enough hints about liking the Dessert Gallery to find this small but perfectly formed box under the wrapping paper. The Dessert Gallery, like many of Thorntons special collections, doesn't come cheap, priced at £7.50 for a 210g box. This might sound like a big box but, be warned, it only contains 16 small but perfectly formed little chocolates. There is ... Read the complete review

Part of my recent order at Thorntons.co.uk was this box of luxury chocolates. At £7.50 for a box of 16 they are an expensive indulgence, but as they were included as part of a 3 for 2 promotion and I had eyed them up in store I had to buy a box to see what they were like. As I have now 'sampled' the majority of the chocolates in the box I feel qualified to be able to review the contents and give my thoughts on the selection given. The box itself has been attractively designed and has an Art Deco look to it; Thorntons don't skimp on the quality and the packaging inside and out has a premium look and feel to it. Removing the outer plastic wrapper ... Read the complete review

The name "Dessert Gallery" kind of gives away the contents of this box of chocolates from Thorntons. Each chocolate is a miniature version of a dessert, apparently the favourites of Barry Colenso, the Thorntons Master Chocolatier. THE CHOCOLATES - Summer Fruit Pudding - Raspberry cream topped with a layer of real strawberry jelly, all in a milk chocolate cup. - Toffee Mousse - A dark chocolate cup the filled with treacle toffee sauce, topped with a few tiny pieces of Thorntons special toffee. - Crème Brulee - A rich, creamy filling topped with golden Demerara sugar, in a milk chocolate cup. - ...

I was lucky enough to receive a box of Thorntons Dessert Gallery chocolates as a gift. And what a lovely gift it was too! The packaging itself is quite plain and simple in design. The box is predominantly white and there is a little transparent window in lid that allowed me to take a cheeky little peek at a few of the gorgeous looking chocolate dessert treats inside that were tantalizing my taste buds. On opening the box, it was quite difficult to choose what to taste first! They all looked so delicious! The 215g box contains 8 different flavours to choose from, all of which there are 2 of, therefore making a total of 16 chocolates. Also inside the box is a ... Read the complete review
