Advantages: Tasty, big variety, nice box, attractive presentation, distinctive and interesting tastes
Disadvantages: Best for people who prefer milk chocolate as the majority is milk chocolate
I received a box of these as a gift, it was a pink box with hearts on containing 359 grams of chocolate. The box is well presented in a lovely pink colour with hearts on and a photo of some of the chocolates, the box is quite big because mine were on a single layer which makes it look quite impressive.
Inside there are 29 chocolates in 11 varieties, two of the chocolates are covered in foil and they each have a unique appearance which gives the box of chocolates a special feel and just looks lovely. On the front of the box it says 'A selection of creamy truffles, light mousses and smooth pralines in milk, white and dark chocolate' the majority of the chocolates are milk which is great for me because milk chocolate is my favourite out of the three. The chocolates included in this box are as follows...
Vanilla Velvet: this is a round, white chocolate with dark chocolate drizzled on top filled with a light and creamy vanilla truffle centre, it tasted creamy to me and the vanilla wasn't too strong, the outside of this was crisp and the dark chocolate took away some of the milkiness which was nice because I find that white chocolate can be a bit sickly sometimes.
Amaretto Truffle: this is a milk chocolate with crunchy amaretto biscuit pieces in the outer shell and filled with an amaretto liqueur centre, I usually don't like liqueur chocolates but it wasn't too strong and didn't overpower the milk chocolate.
Cafe Latte: this is one of my favourites! It has a strong cappuccino taste to it and the outer shell is white chocolate with a dusting of coffee on top, it is filled with a light filling which tastes like cappuccino to me, it is a strong taste but isn't overpowering because of the white chocolate which adds sweetness and creaminess and goes well with the filling.
Dual Layered Praline: this is another of my favourites, it has a small layer of a white chocolate praline and the rest is a hazelnut and milk chocolate praline which tastes very nutty, this is coated in a milk chocolate shell with a drizzle of dark chocolate on top.
Orange Truffle: this chocolate was wrapped in shiny red foil and is heart shaped, I wasn't expecting much of this, I was expecting an orange cream taste which I don't really like but actually it was a thick milk chocolate shell with a soft milk chocolate and tangy orange truffle centre, the orange flavour is tangy and noticeable but doesn't take away from the milk chocolate.
Crunchy Praline: this has a dark chocolate outer shell and is filled with hazelnut praline with crunchy little bits of hazelnut, there is a slight salty taste which gives a nice blend of salty and sweet in the praline.
Caramel Divine: this has a milk chocolate shell with a drizzle of white chocolate and the centre is a delicious caramel truffle, not a liquid caramel but a rich truffle which tastes strongly of caramel but with a thick and creamy texture.
Caramel Meltaway: this is a milk chocolate outer shell with a creamy caramel centre with crunchy bits. The smoothness and the crunchiness go really well together, the chocolate is a curved raindrop shape with ripples on top.
Marc De Champagne Truffle: this is a thick dark chocolate shell with a champagne flavoured truffle inside, it is creamy and rich but the champagne isn't overpowering, it is quite soft but still noticeable and an interesting flavour, the shell is topped with a drizzle of milk chocolate.
Triple Chocolate Mousse: this is a light and fluffy milk chocolate mousse coated in a thick layer of milk chocolate and topped with flakes of white chocolate, a very chocolatey taste but not boring because of the different components.
Thortons Signature: there is only one of these in the box, it's a quite large plain milk chocolate with the word 'Thortons' on the front, it is just pure Thorntons milk chocolate, delicious!
All in all, I would definitely recommend this box of chocolates to give as a gift or to treat yourself, there is a great variety to choose from and they're all very tasty. I have seen some fantastic prices on this particular box in Home Bargains and Tesco lately.
