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.

French Broad Aphrodisiac Collection

On first look, I thought this box of truffles I received from French Broad Chocolates was just another simple, handmade affair...

Asda ‘The Collection’

I’m always a little wary when supermarkets send their own brand chocolate samples, so when Asda asked if we could review their latest “The Collection” (imaginative name) chocolates in time for Valentines Day, I can’t say I was looking forward to them...

Paul A. Young Valentine’s Selection

Time for more Valentine’s chocolates, this time from the always awesome Paul A. Young. As you’d expect from Paul, everything looks amazing, so I just thought I’d show you lots of pretty pictures.

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 …

Chococo Valentine’s Gift Set

Here’s a bit of Valentine’s fun from Chococo. A 125g dark chocolate heart with white chocolate cherubs and little sugar hearts and a selection of 16 fresh chocolates. Let’s start with the heart. You can pick from other varieties of chocolate …

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 …

Nestlé KitKat Raspberry & Passion Fruit

How KitKat’s became so popular in Japan is a mystery to me. This simple little snack was originally created in Yorkshire by Rowntree’s in the 1930s, and for a long time didn’t do anything particularly interesting. For as long as I …

Ferrara Milk Chocolate Strawberry Ball

I must not be a Valentine’s Day person; I very nearly didn’t get to any chocolates for the holiday this year. Then when I finally pick something up, it is nothing comparable to the all-out Hotel Chocolat offerings that have …

Hotel Chocolat Magnificent Heart

Another heart-shaped Hotel Chocolat product for Valentines, and this time it’s a 70% cocoa dark chocolate creation studded with fruit and nuts. Before we continue with this, I feel I ought to pout this particular item into perspective. Yes, it’s THAT big. …

Hotel Chocolat Chilli & Nibs Sweethearts

This deep red box contains four rows of seven chocolate hearts, each engraved with what would appear to be the, or possibly one of, Hotel Chocolat’s Valentines motif (of which more later, but on a much grander scale). This is the …

Laura Secord Sex And The City Collection

I thought I should get into Valentine’s Day mode to see what the local stores had to offer for amorous Canadians. The majority of it was the usual stuff, just repackaged into heart-shaped boxes, but something did catch my eye …

Chococo Love Box

I love Chococo. They manage to strike the perfect balance between ‘hand made’ and ‘luxury gift’, and this attractive little box is the perfect illustration of that. This is their medium sized ‘Love Box’ (stop giggling at the back!) which …

Hotel Chocolat Gorgeous Heart – Fruity Affair

“Gorgeous Heart – Fruity Affair” is a silly name for a silly chocolate. Brilliantly silly, that is. A successor to last year’s ‘Heart Strings‘, this giant 650 gram heart comes in very similar packaging, laced up down the middle and …

Chocolate Heart Face-Off: Hotel Chocolat vs Thorntons

This year, Hotel Chocolat and Thorntons sent us similarly sized boxes of chocolate hearts, so rather than do two reviews, I thought it would be fun to put them head to head and see who comes out on top – …

Thorntons Lovebirds

Well Christmas is over and done with, and the next vaguely-chocolatey-holiday is just around the corner. Yes, handily squeezed in just before Easter comes St Valentine’s day. This 170g offering from Thorntons is, frankly, part of their old school ‘cheap and …

Galler ‘Oh! Les Coeurs’

When it comes to presentation, there are a couple of ways to say ‘posh’. Galler have chosen the simplicity of a strong, simple orange box with a simple branded paper wrap for this collection. So what are “Les Coeurs”? I wanted …

Cocopia Raspberry Caramel Bombe

Here we have a Valentine’s offering from Tesco’s “artisan” brand Cocopia. Milk chocolate hearts with a raspberry flavoured caramel centre, decorated with freeze dried raspberries. Of course, the first thing you’ll notice is the rather smart box they come in. It’s …

Ghirardelli Pink Heart

Another pink Valentine’s Day offering here, in a nice soft, silver pink. My disappointment in it, though, was at finding only seven squares inside. The heart isn’t very big, but I was expecting more like ten. This explains the awkward …

Hotel Chocolat Heart Strings

The final Valentine’s offering from Hotel Chocolat this year, and I’ve saved the best… well, the biggest at least… for last. I had no idea what was in this giant, pink, 700g box, and I deliberately avoided looking at the description …

Hotel Chocolat Pretty In Pink Goody Bag

Taking a step up from the Caramel Sweethearts, we have this Valentine’s offering from Hotel Chocolat. A pink “goody bag” packed with chocolatey delights. In no particular order, we have: “Selection of the Season” Chocolates This small tray contains six heart shaped, …

Hotel Chocolat Caramel Sweethearts

Well Valentine’s Day is coming up again and that can only mean more weird and wonderful creations from Hotel Chocolat! I’m starting with the simplest of the three sample products they’ve sent us this year. Caramel Sweethearts are “two-bite” pieces of …

Hotel Chocolat Love Selection Peepster Box

While Dom was busy blindfolding himself and playing games with Hotel Chocolat’s Secrets and Desires box, I was nibbling my way through this – the Love Selection. A seasonal selection of Hotel Chocolat’s slabs which included two Love Slabs (one …

Hotel Chocolat Secrets & Desires

We’ve mentioned many times before just how important packaging is. Whether simple or extravagant, it can make or break a product. Hotel Chocolat have always been experts at packaging, and this is no exception. In fact, the packaging for the product …
