when I get a box of mixed chocolates I pick only one of the
chocolates to review. I find that it's too difficult to review
a whole box of chocolates because there are some chocolates
that are great, and some that are not so great. It's very rare
for me to get a boxed of mixed chocolates where each and every
one of them is equal. As it turns out, the folks at Beanermunky
have created just such a box.
The good thing for
me, and for Beanermunky is that not only are these equal, but
they're all really tasty as well. Honestly not every single
chocolate was my favourite, but the quality of each was equal.
The chocolate on every one was smooth and tasty, the fillings
were all well balanced with the chocolate, and they all looked
fantastic. The variation in fillings was actually nice as well,
some fillings were fairly creative, and some were traditional
classics. The most important thing is that each chocolate balanced
just right with their filling.
If I were offered
a full box of only one of these chocolates, I would probably
request the apple caramel chocolate. It was unique, tasty, and
it was one of the few times that I've really enjoyed apple and
caramel together in a candy. Most of the time candy companies
use fake apple with their caramel, but in this case it was real
apple and it was in perfect balance with the caramel. My least
favorite chocolates were all of the coffee chocolates, but not
because they were particularly bad, I'm just not a big fan of
coffee. I'm sure any coffee fan would have enjoyed these more
The great thing about
this variety is that it offers something for just about everybody.
Even the fruit chocolates that I don't normally like because
the fruit flavour is often overpowering were really good. You
could tell that there's great effort put into these chocolates
because of the use of real ingredients (and not just flavours),
as well as the attention to detail when it comes to balancing
these flavours with the chocolate.
