"Ferrero Rocher - nutty, chocolatey rich little balls of heaven"

INTRODUCTION

These luxurious chocolates are a must for any dinner party or important occasion! I bought a box to share with friends at christmas and I became completely addicted to the fabulous taste of Ferrero Rocher. But if you need some indulgence there's nothing to stop you buying this product even if it isn't a special occasion.

PACKAGING


The packaging is of a very high quality, the thick plastic lid is embossed with a divine diamond pattern, yet underneath are a sea of golden globes. Your eyes are fed with a feast of gold - I love what I see!

The honeycomb golden tray is dazzling, and really gives you a sense of luxury.
Each of the chocolates are hand packaged and are covered in a wonderful golden foil in a brown/gold paper basket topped off with a oval sticker saying Ferrero Rocher. The time taken over the wrapping and the quality of the appearance of this product set Ferrero Rocher apart from other brands in the market.
In this box, you get 24 chocolates, on the side of the golden tray is embossed "Ferrero Rocher" which is classy and makes for a very attractive box.

APPEARANCE, TASTE AND TEXTURE


After you've unwrapped the chocolate, you are hit with a lovely aroma of roasted hazelnuts - truly sublime! It would take a person with the self control of a saint not to devour that chocolate in one go when being hit with that smell.

The chocolate praline sphere is embedded with roasted hazelnuts and when you take a bite you crunch through so many layers. Milk chocolate surface embedded with chopped roasted hazelnuts, Wafer shell, Hazelnut truffle cream and finally a whole Hazelnut make up the many layers of this product, each one with different textures and aromas.
The taste is scrumptious, each one is sweet but you get the lovely taste of hazelnuts at the same time - truly yummy. The differently layers contrast with each other and the crunchy wafer and nuts go together perfectly with the smooth praline centre.

PRICE


Since this is a top quality product they are quite pricey and are around £7 for a box of around 24, however if it's a special occasion then I'd definately advise you to splash out. They are worth it!

OPINIONS AND CRITICISMS


Apart from being overly pricey, these chocolates are nearly perfect products, however there are a few more problems with this product for example it is hard to open the plastic lid initially as it is sealed so much with tape.
There is is also a lot of packaging on this product - it takes so long to unwrap and eat them and this can get really annoying!
They can also sometimes be a little too indulgent and a little too rich at times. However they are extremely addictive!

CONCLUSION

This is without a doubt the best chocolate I have ever tasted and I don't know anyone who doesn't like Ferrero Rocher. However these are expensive. I would not reccomend buying these apart from a special occasion, if you just want chocolate I would get something cheaper, because this product can be overpriced.
