Thorntons Academy of Chocolate Gold Award Winners

A selection of three Academy of Chocolate award winning fresh chocolates, part of Thorntons' "Wonder Box".

Abanico Dark & Milk Assortment

Abanico Chocolat is a French chocolatier, with a shop in Paris. They were kind enough to send me a rather beautiful box of chocolates to review, which weighs in at 37 Euros. Of course, the first thing you’ll notice about …

Hotel Chocolat Eggs & Soldiers

It’s probably been 32 years since I last had eggs with soldiers, but this cute little Easter box from Hotel Chocolat still managed to catch my attention.

Delaviuda Bonbones

Two years ago, I looked at some milk chocolate truffles by Delaviuda, which I found to be pleasant eatables. Now I return with a box of dark chocolate dessert cups with a series of praline fillings. Like before, the box …

President’s Choice Swiss Praline Collection

I’m not a fan of the increased use of palm oil in chocolate, but sometimes it is more noticeable. In the case of this box, the chocolates feel greasy when you pick them up. Not a positive sign.

Neuhaus Valentine’s Selection

These two Valentine’s Day pieces came to me from Belgian chocolatier Neuhaus. First is a heart box filled with nineteen pralines. Its red siding gives a modern look to the box’s top pattern of a lace pattern of grey-on-white.

Pralus Barre Infernale Lait

An amazing ingot of milk chocolate with a thick praline filling.

Danucci Dark Chocolate Selection

Danucci is a company based in Co. Louth, Ireland who have a chocolatier by the name of Michelle Lowth. This little box contains five pieces – a Sea Salted Caramel (the shiny silver one), a Rustic Praline (the ridged one), Raspberry …

Hotel Chocolat Summer Goody Bag

Time for another Hotel Chocolat goody bag! I do love these things, despite the fact that they come in a little handbag and are probably not aimed at me. I think there’s something exciting about ripping open a bag full …

Galler Bouchées Pralinées

More from the Galler stable, this time in the shape of a more orthodox selection of milk chocolate pralines. Inside the long, thin tin you’ll find these. Perhaps it has something to do with the order in which I came to …

Rococo Chocolates Quail Eggs

Two days ago I bought a house. As you can see, it’s not a very big house, but with London property prices the way they are, it’s all I could afford. The house in question was purchased at the London …

Galler Bouchée Bars

As far as I can work out, these are being marketed as one of those little self indulgent treats for grownups, or as a lunchbox filler for kids, and before anyone asks, ‘Croc’ does not mean that I’ve been eating …

Thorntons Praline Melts

According to the press release that came with these, today – January 18th – is the most depressing day of the year. And that, apparently, is why Thorntons are giving away a million of them to people like you. Yes, …

Hotel Chocolat Sparkling Stars Pralines

This praline selection from Hotel Chocolat apparently has a Christmas theme to it. I’m not convinced the three snowflakes and two sprigs of holly on the box add up to the most festive theme in the world, but someone in …

Galler Langues de Chats

So, having established Jean Galler as a purveyor of fine quality chocolate and a man not afraid to experiment with unusual flavours and product design, I receive another sample box. (I have come to recognise the boxes, as I am …

Hotel Chocolat Sleekster Milk Oblivion

It’s been a while since we reviewed any Hotel Chocolat offerings, and I can’t even remember the last time I reviewed a proper box of chocolates from them. But this large (390g) box turned up on my doorstep last week …

Marabou ‘Aladdin’ Hjartan

Until recently I hadn’t been into an Ikea for quite some time, although apparently a trip to Ikea on a weekend is fast becoming a National Pastime. Well, whilst on a recent visit to source lighting, I had a nose …

Galaxy Amicelli

Hazelnut praline filled wafer sticks covered in Galaxy milk chocolate.

Venchi ‘Cuba’ Praline Cigar

Here’s something a little unusual, and certainly one up on the sweet cigarettes we used to have as kids. One hundred grams of dark and milk chocolate with a praline filling, made by Venchi (purveyors of inedible Absinthe chocolate). Certainly …

Lindt Pralinés Noirs

There’s only one thing better I like seeing than chocolates on special and in large quantities, like this: …is when I see this, something entirely new from Lindt. In this case it is a gorgeous looking box of Pralinés Noirs …

Cadbury Eight Moments

It is always too easy to mock and dismiss Cadbury chocolate as it’s been around forever, is always affordable, predictable, safe and reliable and has about as much personality and flavour thrills as a bathroom tile. Therefore, I wasn’t too excited …

Hotel Chocolat Christmas Peepster Box

I love Hotel Chocolat slabs. Not only are they delicious chunks of yumminess, but you also get enough to feed a small planet for approximately five years. Luckily, the mini slabs are equally delicious, but much more manageable. I doubt they …

Elysberg ‘Emoti’ Vodka Fig Pralines

No, it isn’t a typo, these really are vodka and fig pralines. Well, to be more accurate, they’re pralines that are filled with a fig-infused vodka. (I did say figs had suddenly appeared with surprising regularity, if you’ll pardon the …

Cadbury Dairy Milk Melts – Heavenly Praline

Back in May, I reviewed the “Deliciously Dark” variety of Dairy Milk Melts, so I thought it was time I to look at the rest of the range. As you can see, the format is exactly the same. Eight small bars …

Lacta Lov’it Waffle ‘n’ Praline

I recently spent a couple of days in Athens, and of course any trip abroad instantly turns into a chance to hunt for new and unusual bars to bring to your attention. After all, most of us holiday at some …

Isis Luxury Belgian Pralinoir

In contrast to my previous review of PureFlavour Raw chocolate, may I present Isis? This is a Belgian bar made by a company who have been making chocolate for eighty five years, and was bought from Waitrose. This bar is best …

Ritter Sport Praliné

As you may already know, I’m a huge fan of Ritter Sport. They make simple, great quality chocolate in decent sized bars. It’s unpretentious and delicious. This particular bar is interesting because it’s quite similar to the Guylian Sea Shells I …

Cadbury Flake Praline

Flake Praline is one of four new(ish) variations on Cadbury Flake – the others being Flake Dark, Flake Dipped and Snowflake. The wrapper describes this as “Crumbly milk chocolate Flake nestled in a rich hazelnut praline”. I beg to differ. I would …
