The packaging was well presented, robust and letter-box friendly, and I was impressed that all the chocolates were intact and in place when I opened up the box, which consisted of a range of luxury milk, white and dark chocolates, including truffles, pralines and buttons; The chocolates looked beautiful...some were real works of art and they smelt amazing.
Our favourite chocolate over all (as a family) was the Ecuador 70% dark chocolate buttons, which had a delicious balance between an intense bitter cocoa hit and a subtle sweetness. My favourite was the dark chocolate brandy truffle and Mr O's chocolate of choice was the milk chocolate almond praline. My only criticism of this collection was that I would have preferred far more emphasis placed on high quality dark chocolates (and I would have been happy with no white chocolates at all, as I don't consider white chocolate to be real chocolate!).
While I love the thought of a box of quality chocolates popping through my letter box every month or two, the price would put me off somewhat. However a years membership would make a lovely gift, which I'm sure would be appreciated by most people.
I received a free introductory box of chocolates to review from Cocoa Boutique. I was not required to write a positive review and the views expressed are genuinely those of myself and my family.
