I found these fine looking chocolates in Thornton’s, but you’d be hard pushed to tell from the packaging. Despite being made by them, the name and brand only appears in the small print on the back of the pack.
The chocolate consists of a milk chocolate cup, filled with a raspberry mousse and topped with a strawberry jelly. They are quite sweet to look at, but are more of an impulse buy than a proper gift, but they would work as a stocking filler too.
The chocolate is of a good quality, and there is a good amount of it proportional to the filling. The centre of the chocolate is rather sweet and zingy and the chocolate helps mellow this. There is a lot of flavour from the red fruits, and the raspberries are sharp, but the strawberry section adds the sweetness. They are easy to munch through, and are quite fresh on the palette rather than being rich. I have to say I was disappointed that I only picked up three chocolates, which is always a good sign.
If you find yourself searching out the selection boxes for the fruit creams, and you have a sweet tooth I’d suggest giving these a try, I really enjoyed them! They are perfect with a Sunday afternoon coffee indulging in front of the TV.
