Christmas is traditionally a time of year for giving chocolate. And more importantly, eating it. So when a large shoe box packed full of chocolate arrived from The Chocstress, my first thought was “Best present ever!”… followed swiftly by “Oh God, I’m going to have to review all this!”

Naturally, I started with the biggest box… a big gift box containing over 3 million Maltesers. Or at least that’s the way it seems when you open it. It’s huge, and stuffed full of chocs.


If you’ve never had Maltesers, they’re little balls of malt flavoured honeycomb covered in milk chocolate. For those of you in the US, they’re apparently similar to Hershey’s Whoppers.

To be honest, I don’t often buy Maltesers. They’re always there in the shop, but they always seem just a little bit dull compared to the vast array of new and exciting chocolates on offer.

But when presented with a box this big, you can’t fail to be impressed. There’s just so MUCH. If you ask me, all chocolate should come in this size box as standard.

And having managed to scoff my way through the majority of the box single handedly, I found I quite like them. They’re chocolately, malty and crunchy. Just the way they should be.

And now I’m exceedingly fat.
