Thorntons (5)      Boxed Chocolates (8)     


Thorntons, chocolate, classic collection


The Thorntons Classics 587g box is a collection of dark, milk, and white chocolate. There are two layers of 25 chocolates with praline, caramel, and fudge fillings.

They are not as good as the coverture brands, but of a higher quality than your standard cheap confectionaries. My main gripe about this collection is the balance of variety. For example, there are only four of my favourite creamy fudges, while my least favourite, the chunky caramel has eight. I think they should provide an equal amount of each type.

Chunky Caramel


Apart from that, I am pretty pleased with this boxed selection, which makes a good gift. The only reason I don't like the chunky caramel is because it is too solid and chewy. I prefer softer caramels like the purple foiled chocolate with a gooey filling.

Orange Cream


As well as the creamy fudge, the orange and strawberry creams are also very nice. These varieties come in most brands of this style, and can either be great or disastrous. The sing of orange pieces and sweet scent of strawberry fondant makes these a winner.

Hazelnut Heaven


Hazelnut heaven is more potent than most pralines. Inside the white chocolate shell hides a strong nutty flavour. The coffee cream equally provides a strong hit.

Turkish Delight


On the subtler side is honeycomb crisp and Turkish delight, which has a faint hint of rose.

Love Thorntons


One of the most fun chocolates is the triple treat, which is a layer of milk, white, and dark chocolate. I like to bite off each layer individually. The milk chocolate here, is the same mellow, but creamy recipe used in their solid segment, which unfortunately only features twice in the collection.

Fruit and Nutty


Last but not least is the fruit and nutty. The raisins in this give a pungent, almost red wine note. Very nice indeed.
