Terry's are best known for their chocolate orange segments, but they have also been producing a gift box collection since 1932. It is called All Gold Dark.

The collection consists of nine different types of chocolate, including Sumptuous Strawberry, Molten Gold, Inca Gold, Almond Jewel, Vanilla Gold Leaf, Hallmark, Cappuccino Radiance, Hazelnut Perfection, and Rich Orange.

Despite being described as dark, you won't find any hint of bitterness here. I never consider it a good sign when a chocolate product does not state the minimum amount of cocoa solids used, but by the taste of these chocolate is is very low indeed. Every one was saccharine sweet.

That is not to say that they were bad. Individually, most of these chocolate tasted quite nice, but have more than one or two and it completely kills your taste buds; you can't taste anything but sugar.

I think the chocolate that probably worked best here was the cappuccino, as the coffee hint offset some of the sweetness.

With its smooth fudge filling, the vanilla was also very enjoyable, and if you eat them first, the texture of the two gold caramels is lovely.

While the hazelnut praline lives up to the desired standards, the marzipan filling inside the almond chocolate is jus too much for something already laden with sugar.

The gooey strawberry fondant may have been sweet, but the real fruit pieces inside gave it that something extra that elevates it above other chocolates of its kind.

The hallmark is pretty unimpressive; it is a plain chocolate disk, but since the quality of the chocolate is not very high, there is nothing to hide its failings.

The only chocolate that I would say was truly terrible, however was the rich orange. Considering the brand is famed for their Terry's Chocolate orange, this was very disappointing. There was nothing rich about it, other than their nerve to give it that name. I couldn't taste any orange whatsoever.

Terry's All Gold Dark can be enjoyed one at a time, but two sweet to be considered proper dark chocolate.
