Dark Mint Thins from Charbonnel et Walker



Chocolate, chocolate, every where,
Ginger sticks, bitter mints and violet creams,
Chocolate, chocolate, every where,
Too many to choose from, they even come in my dreams!

Well, that is my first attempt at poetry and I think it may well be my last attempt as well. My poem writing skills may not be good, but the message I am trying to get across in those four lines holds good. Charbonnel et Walker, who have been established since 1875, have been making hand-made chocolates according to traditional recipes. Their range of chocolates is amazing and they have something for every occasion. Ginger truffles, maple brazils, sugared almonds, vintage fine chocolates, rum fourre - you name it and they have it in their collection; after all they are one of Britain’s earliest chocolatiers.



The Thins Collection from Charbonnel et Walker, like all their other offerings, are hand-made. The packaging is exquisite. The box has a luxurious look and with the red satin ribbon it is perfect for gifting as well. When I held the 'Dark Chocolate Mint Thins' box in my hands, I felt like I was holding a treasure box. And treasure it was, that the box held within itself - chocolate treasure. Thin discs of dark chocolate infused with a subtle taste of mint - luxurious and silky. Melt in the mouth, irresistible dark chocolate with perfect balance of mint. Both myself and Mr.H enjoyed these. It scored well on presentation, quality, texture and flavour. The only wee bit issue was that some of the thins were broken. The chocolate thins are slightly fragile and even though the packaging is sturdy and there is double protection, it did not save some of them from breaking. Other than that these yummy mint thins get full marks from us.

Charbonnel et Walker - Raspberry Marc de Champagne Truffles

Both myself and Mr.H are chocoholics, he more so than me. So, when I receive yummy treats to trial and then share my views with you all, I get excited to say the least. Last week the lovely team at Charbonnel et Walker sent us a sample of the latest addition to their best-selling truffle range - the brand new Raspberry Marc de Champagne Truffles. I have had the opportunity to try some of their other truffles earlier(Sea Salt Banana Caramel Truffles and Marc de Champagne Truffle Heart) and both myself and Mr.H had enjoyed them a lot, so I was expecting these to be equally delicious and mistaken I was not.



The Raspberry Marc de Champagne Truffles feature the irresistible yummy flavour of Marc de Champagne and Raspberry nestled inside a delicious dark chocolate shell. The truffles are lightly finished with a raspberry pink icing sugar. What a treat to the senses! Just looking at them made me happy :) I love dark chocolate and the combination of it with Marc de Champagne and Raspberry was absolutely divine. Totally moreish. Mr. H who favours milk chocolates over dark ones absolutely loved these! He said these are the best dark chocolates he has ever tasted. The balance of flavours was absolutely perfect.



Just like their other offerings, these new truffles from Charbonnel et Walker are handmade using the finest ingredients and placed individually into paper cups. The truffles come well presented in a round truffle box which is a deep raspberry pink in colour. Not just the chocolates, I love the packaging of Charbonnel et Walker goodies as well. I still have the Marc de Champagne Truffle Heart box, which I now use to store my craft bits and bobs :)


The Raspberry Marc de Champagne Truffles retail at £12.95 for 110g. You can shop online at www.charbonnel.co.uk or pick them up in-store as well. I think these truffles are perfect for summer parties and will make wonderful gifts for family and friends.

Sea Salt Banana Caramel Truffles from Charbonnel et Walker

Somebody once said - "Chocolate is the best when it melts so creamy and soft in your mouth that it slides down your throat." I totally agree with that. Chocolate is one of the best treats and a day without chocolate is like a day without sunshine. At home we enjoy our chocolates and at any point of time, there will be an assortment of treats to choose from. Earlier in the month, I had reviewed the Charbonnel et Walker Marc de Champagne Truffle Heart.  With a mix of white and milk chocolate and natural Strawberry flavouring, those truffles were delicious luxurious treats.

Charbonnel et Walker recently introduced a brand new addition to their best-selling truffle range - The Sea Salt Banana Caramel Truffles. Just the name sounds so indulgent and inviting, isn't it?



The Sea Salt Banana Caramel Truffles are made of delicious milk chocolate shells which enclose an irresistible blend of sweet liquid banana caramel infused with the finest sea salt. Yummy! The truffles are delicately dusted with icing sugar. Seriously, these are so tasty and moreish that you can't stop yourself from indulging. Everything is balanced and perfect. Like the jingle for some old advertisement goes - No one can eat just one :)


The truffles are handmade and placed in individual paper cups. They are presented in a round box with a bright yellow colour similar to ripe bananas. The Sea Salt Banana Caramel Truffles retail at £12.50 for 125g and can be purchased online at www.charbonnel.co.uk

Marc de Champagne Truffle Heart from Charbonnel et Walker

Valentine's day is a day filled with romantic gestures, love, happiness and wonderful treats/gifts. One of the most loved and romantic gifts for Valentines Day is undoubtedly chocolates. Like Charles M.Schulz said - "All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.” Chocolates have always been associated with love and romance and when it comes packed in a heart-shaped box, that makes it all the more attractive and exciting.


As a couple, myself and Mr.H really do not need a special day to celebrate togetherness, but if we really want to make it extra special then there is no better way to say it then with a box of luxury chocolates. And Charbonnel et Walker perfectly fits the bill. Charbonnel et Walker are one of Britain’s earliest chocolatiers. They were founded way back in 1875 and all their chocolates are hand-made according to traditional recipes. We tried out the Pink Marc de Champagne Truffle which comes in a beautiful heart-shaped box.


The pink chocolate truffles with a milk chocolate, butter and Marc de Champagne centre are finished with a light dusting of icing sugar. The truffles come beautifully packed in a gold-embossed heart-shaped box. I loved the colour of the box and the chocolates. With a mix of white chocolate, milk chocolate and natural Strawberry flavouring, these truffles are no ordinary truffles. One bite and you know how luxurious these are. The truffles contain Marc de Champagne and White Rum and are treats that need to be savoured not devoured. The flavour and fragrance are both delicious. The product and the packaging both exude luxury and high quality. These truffles from Charbonnel et Walker are sure to delight any recipient.  Perfect for Valentine's day.


Charbonnel et Walker also have loads of other Valentine's chocolate selection like the Truffle Kisses, Fine Dark Chocolate Selection, Mini Champagne & Truffle Set and Red Velvet Boite Rouge Box among others.
