We're all familiar with fruit-enrobed chocolates, and they come in various qualities. You might expect a selection titled 'Take Away' to be at the lower end of this list, but Montezuma's Chocolate Fruits is classed as an 'adult treat' made with their award winning house blends.
There is no questioning the quality of the dark and white chocolate coating, but whether you like this cup of chocs really depends on what kind of fruit you like.
For me, it was a disappointment. While I loved the white freeze-dried strawberries, crystallised ginger is a big non no for me. Ginger is very strong, can be over powering, and is therefore best enjoyed in small doses or used as a spice in cakes and cuisine. It is an acquired taste, and I think Montezuma would have been better off picking something more universally loved.
The third fruit was also an unusual choice. Instead of going for a much-loved chocolate orange, they decided to use the peel instead. Clumped together in tiny nuggets, this might have worked if covered in milk or white chocolate, but the dark chocolate provides no break from the bitterness.
Montezuma decided to be different from the usual offerings available, which is good on one level, but also risky. For me, it did not work, and I would have preferred a more conventional fruit selection.
