James

James Chocolates is a British company started by James Hutchins in 1995. Here's a list of all the James products we've reviewed on Chocablog:

James Chocolates Tasting Boxes

Salted Caramel and Chilli themed chocolate tasting boxes.

James Salted Caramel Honeycomb

Honeycomb balls with milk chocolate and salted caramel.

James Chocolate Christmas Pudding Truffle

Christmas pudding shaped truffle from James Chocolate

James Chocolates Firecracker Egg

A 70% cocoa dark chocolate egg, but it’s James Firecracker chocolate, and therefore home to chilli, pepper, spice, and of course popping candy.

James Chocolates Caramel & Vanilla Easter Egg

This is the first of a handful of eggs I received from James Chocolates. It’s one of their 60g eggs, which means two things – it’s not going to last you a week, and it won’t cost an absolute fortune. …

James Strawberry & Champagne Truffles

James Chocolates’ second offering for lovers who love chocolate comes in the form of these Strawberry & Marc de Champagne liqueur truffles, although in fairness they aren’t in any way Valentine themed other than by virtue of the fact they’re …

James Raspberry Hearts

In case you weren’t aware (in which case there’s a good chance you’re male and possibly single) Valentines Day will soon be upon us once again, and chocolate manufacturers all over the world have been getting the heart shaped moulds …

James Chocolate Bars

James Chocolates were at the Speciality & Fine Food fair at Olympia earlier this year, and owner James Hutchins himself gave me four little slabs to try out. Firecracker Dark chocolate laced with pepper and spices. Strong, peppery taste to begin …

James Caramel & Vanilla Discs

Time for another offering from James Chocolates, and this time we have some rather interesting looking caramel chocolate discs with vanilla and sea salt. The thing that intrigued me most though, was that ‘Great Taste Gold’ award logo on the package. …

James Raspberry Truffles

Time for something else from James. This time we have some dark chocolate raspberry truffles. Sounds good. The first thing I noticed about these is that the colour is a little odd. Because they’re dark chocolate, dusted in pink raspberry powder, …

James Dark Chocolate Cupcake Egg

I’ve reviewed a few James Chocolates products before and had mixed experiences. More often than not, they’re beautifully presented original designs, but the actual chocolate has left something to be desired. I usually find James products in the “expensive chocolate section” …

James Dark Chocolate Fish

This 94g chocolate fish was a Christmas present. Not the kind of thing I’d usually buy for myself, even for review purposes. It’s clearly designed as a gift – a novelty item – rather than a quality chocolate product. It …

James Handmade Chocolate Piglets

I’ve only encountered James Chocolates once before – when their Hot & Spicy Ginger & Chilli Chocs went down rather well with my friends. Like those, I found these cute little (tiny) piglets in John Lewis. As you’d expect from – …

James Hot & Spicy Ginger & Chilli Chocolates

Here we have another John Lewis special. One of those things that comes in a pretty box but invariably ends up not being worth the money. But in this case, the box was particularly pretty and I’m a fan of …
