French Chocolates by Post – Three Box Giveaway #16
“You have a parcel from France!” I heard CT shout. Rushing from the kitchen, I was excited to see it was a box of French chocolates, no less – ooh la la! This was the November offering from Club Chocolat Francais and I couldn’t wait to get my snout into it. I reviewed a similar box of these French Chocolates by Post a few months ago and you can find out more about the company behind the chocolates there. It looks as though they’ve listened to feedback as the flavours are rather more exciting than the last box I reviewed.
As before, a gorgeous aroma of chocolate and nuts wafted up from the box when I opened it, making the thought of having to take photographs before diving in, almost unbearable. Don’t look too closely at the picture or you might notice that the salted caramel got the better of me before the camera was out of its case. Again, there was a good mix of dark, milk and white chocolates. Although pralines prevailed (and that was all right by me), they were all quite different and there were a number of other interesting choices.
Dark chocolate salted caramel – the dark chocolate had a particularly rich aroma and it’s strong flavour together with the salt offset the sweetness of the caramel very nicely.
Lemon & coriander – this was particularly flavoursome, very lightly lemony ganache enrobed with dark chocolate and with a lovely aftertaste of coriander.
Pistachio praline – the pistachios really came to the fore in this milk chocolate and was probably one of the nicest pralines I’ve ever eaten.
Praline petal – unusual in appearance and delicious in taste, this consisted of a thin layer of praline enrobed with lots of milk chocolate.
Caramelised praline – caramelised nuts really made this praline stand out.
Other mixes, I wasn’t so sure about. I felt that in the case of passionfruit and coconut, the coconut overwhelmed the passionfruit. Conversely, the raspberry and pistachio was the other way around and the fruit overwhelmed the nut. However, all in all, I really enjoyed these and would be delighted to receive a box of 34 French chocolates in the post every month. If this appeals to you, then do take a look at the Club Chocolat Francais website, where you can sign up straightaway if you so desire.
