jumped at the chance to review chocolate; I mean who wouldn’t, especially when
it was such a big box of Continental Thorntons to get stuck into and another
equally appealing looking box of truffles.
I was keen to see how the personalised aspect of their range worked.
Having just moved house naturally I went for new home
wording, but these would be fabulous boxes to thank teachers at this time of
year (only two weeks till the end of term eeek, how did that come round so
quick!). The Alphabet
Truffles were my favourite, so very moreish and good value at £15 for 22
I am a fan of chocolate but I tend to have a few and
because Thorntons are so rich I am happy to finish after a couple I truly
savour. But I could have happily eaten
the whole box of truffles in one sitting; it took all my willpower to offer the
box around the room after our meal. I
decided to be nice and share them with my children, hubbie, my mum and brother
(even if it was a little reluctantly!).
By the time my poor dad had done the dishes we had wolfed down the
lion’s share of the chocolate it really was that good. On reflection perhaps I should have reviewed
them on my own in the middle of the night when everyone was sleeping ha!
The personalisation was easy to read as the icing message
is done very well. I missed a trick
with the truffles though I had not noticed you can also add hearts, smiley
faces or stars, so when I come to order next time I will be making the most of
those icons too to finish off my message nicely.
The epic box of Continental chocolates came with free
gift-wrap that made it look like an expensive gift. The box was filled to the brim with a wonderful assortment of
delicious chocolates. My order came
quickly and I was very pleased with my experience of the personalised
gifts from Thorntons. I am not a
huge fan of edible models of chocolate, so sticking to smaller bite sized
chocolates and still getting the personalised element for me is a welcome bonus!
