Tatty Teddy Luxury Chocolate Collection Review
It's Valentine's Day soon and that, invariably, means CHOCOLATES!
There's nothing quite like being given a big kiss, then an even bigger hug followed by a box of chocolates from the person you love most in the whole world.
Well actually there is - it's being given a box of these lovely Tatty Teddy Luxury Chocolates; there's a blue version for boys and a pink version for us girls, the contents of both is exactly the same.
I've been paying attention to all the different boxes of chocolates on sale in Tesco (as that's where I tend to shop) and there are all the usual suspects to choose from - Milk Tray, Thorntons, Lindt et al.
They're all undeniably tasty, I know because I've tried them, but they've got one important ingredient missing - ROMANCE.
My heart melted the moment I saw this Tatty Teddy Luxury Chocolate Collection box; the little black-eyed, blue-nosed teddy peeking through a clutched bunch of roses is impossible not to love; there really is no comparison between this one and the others.
Inside, the obligatory black tissue paper is stuck together with a blue 'Me To You' sticker and the little booklet that tells which each flavour is has a smaller version of the box picture printed on the front, just in case you missed how cute it was the first time.
There are 15 chocolates in a box; each box costs £4.99 and is available from selected Tesco, Sainsbury's and Morrisons stores along with other quality independent shops.
There are nine different flavours: Almond & Marzipan, Chewy Toffee, Hazelnut Truffle, Strawberry Parfait, Golden Caramel (this one has the 'Me To You' logo on the top), Orange Cream, Chocolate Truffle, Coffee Mousse and Nougat.
There are two of most flavours and the Hazelnut and Chocolate Truffles are coated with white chocolate.
Each chocolate is wonderful (this was a tough review, I mean really you have no idea what a hardship it was to do), there is a nice mix of dark, white and milk chocolates and all the usual favourite centres. Not only that, and it pains me to say it, yes, I can even recommend the Coffee Mousse flavour and I usually give the coffee ones away to someone else!
No you won't find a double layer in this Tatty Teddy Luxury Chocolate Collection and, yes, there are only 15 chocolates but there's something about that, combined with the complete and utter CUTENESS of the box, which is what makes it feel so special.
The chocolates are long gone from the Tatty Teddy Luxury Chocolate Collection that I was sent but I still have the box, I just can't bring myself to throw it away!
I hope you're lucky enough to get a box of your own for Valentine's Day.
