Advantages Great taste, Great selection, Makes a lovely gift
~ THE CHOCOLATES ~
My boyfriend's auntie bought me and my boyfriend a large box of chocolates to share as an Easter gift. We were expecting a small egg, how-ever she spent a bit more and handed us a huge box from Thornton’s. The box is called the classic collection and has a total of 42 chocolates which contains classic favourites including Caramel, Fudge, Fruit & Nut centres covered in milk, dark and white chocolate. I can’t find these on the Thornton’s website so I’m not 100% how much they are, however I imagine they are around £9.99 or just under for the box of these. You can purchase these chocolates in a smaller sized box for around £6.50 and also a larger box for £11.99. You can also choose to have these gift-wrapped if you wish. The chocolates are available to buy both online and in store.
~ PACKAGING ~
~ APPEARANCE/SMELL ~
The tray of chocolates made my mouth water as soon as I saw them. There is a nice range of different shaped chocolates each with a different coating of milk, dark or white chocolate on them. Some of the chocolates are wrapped in individual foil wrappers which are orange and red in colour. There is also a large piece of chocolate towards the bottom of the tray which has Thornton’s etched onto the front of it. As there are so many chocolates all you can smell is a strong chocolate smell. You can smell any of the centre’s that may be in the chocolates such as the caramel, nuts or fruit centres. These do smell a little sickly, but only because there are a lot of chocolates in the box.
~ THE LEAFLET ~
The small leaflet which comes in with the box of chocolates has a picture of 13 different chocolates which are all included in the box. The leaflet shows you the chocolate as a whole and then in half and has a description of each chocolate underneath the picture so you can choose the chocolate you wish to have. The pictures on the paper were very clear so you had no problems trying to work out which chocolate was which.
~ TASTE TEST ~
The overall look of all the chocolates look very appealing and they all look as good as each other. I wasn’t really sure which one to go for first but I would taste all of them eventually so I guess it didn’t really matter which one I went for first.
