Advantages: A great collection of sweets to suit everyone
Disadvantages: Not a lot in box
We recently had a friend stay overnight with us and in return for our hosting, she brought us some little gifts, one of which was this box of Thornton's moments, which my husband and I managed to eat entirely between us within the space of a week! Although I am a fan of Thornton's chocolate, this is not a box of sweets that I had ever tried before.
A 250g box of these Thornton's moments costs around the £4 mark in the likes of the supermarkets. On the front of the box, it states that this box offers 'a selection of favourite centres smothered in milk chocolate'. It also indicates at the bottom of the box that these are perfect to 'share' which my husband and I gladly did! This must be a slightly updated box however from the picture at the front of the screen, as it now contains a 'strawberry dream' chocolate as well.
Within this box, there is at assortment of 7 flavoured chocolates, including this new strawberry addition. Each chocolate is wrapped individually in coloured foil. The range of chocolates includes, creamy fudge, orange crisp, chocolate truffle, soft caramel, double chocolate croquant, crunchy praline and the new strawberry dream.
When you open up the paper, you will see that each sweet is literally a bite, a yummy bite, but rather small. I am not usually a fan of fudge, however I make the exception with thornton's as even the creamy fudge sweet is quite delicious. I really didn't mind which of these sweets that I chose when I was handed the box by my husband, however, I would say that the new strawberry dream is probably my favourite. I think there is a great range within this box and there should be something for everyone to choose from happily. I wouldn't say that there is a lot of sweets in the box, and it didn't take my husband or me long to get through them, partly because they were yummy but also because the box wasn;t exactly full to the brim!!
All in all, Thornton's is a well known and respected name in the world of chocolate, and this box does not disappoint. Each chocolate is delicious, and unless you are particularly fussy I would go so far as to say that you will probably like them all. The addition of the strawberry dream adds to this collection. My only slight complaint is that there aren't that many sweets in the box and the sweets are quite small, but then again I didn't pay for them!
