Disneyland Paris - Micky & Minnie Cameo Chocolates [by @NLi10]

My sister recently went on a trip to Disneyland Paris and generously brought back this large tin of cameo style character chocolates.

They came in a lovely matt black presentation tin, but it seems a bit thin to store anything of much practical use in. The design is a fantastic one showing the castle and the fireworks in silver and it's clearly designed to be a perfect gift for looking after the pets, or not being taken with the rest of the family.

The chocolates are a similarly well thought out affair - they are milk, dark and white in three layers and are very impressive to look at. Flavourwise they aren't amazing. They aren't quite as bad as advent calendar chocolates, but they are very European in flavour. With Belgium and its wonderful chocolatiers behind this selection you'd have hoped that they wanted to create a product that people came to Disney just to obtain (like the Tigger backpacks in the 90s) but this is just an average chocolate, fantastically designed in a really nice tin.

I love the idea of layered chocolate, with the dark, milk and white. M&S used to do a fab bar like this - but I haven't seen it for ages.

They are nice enough, and people who prefer milder chocs may love them (esp kids). I do love strong choc though.
