I was a little concerned about the fate of a chocolate wreath in the Christmas post but I need not have worried. It arrived well packaged in a cardboard box
surrounded by packaging beans. Recently, we had some parcels arrive with a large amount of packaging which didn't seem to be recyclable. However, the beans around the wreath are apparently compostable and so are currently residing in our compost bin!
The actual wreath was in a chic black and white box
with a white ribbon, now in the craft drawer!
The wreath itself, well, it was appreciated!
The chocolate is described as 50% milk chocolate so tasted much more "chocolatey" than most milk chocolate. The nuts were very small so I wasn't concerned about letting my almost five year old try some of the wreath.
The nuts and cookies also made a pleasant contrast to the smooth chocolate texture.
Everyone who tried the wreath was impressed. I had to hide part of it away for a family member who was away when it arrived!
The Christmas Wreath could be used as a special dessert after Christmas lunch.
- Well presented.
- Recyclable packaging.
- Attractive chunky wreath
- Wonderful, moreish taste.
- Appealing textures with smooth chocolate and crunchy nuts and cookies.
There is really only one and that is that at £21 this is really more than I would want to spend. However, if there is someone on your present list who is a chocolate lover and this is in budget then this is recommended!
Obviously, this isn't suitable for anyone with a nut allergy but the list of contents is clearly stated on the website and on the packaging so this isn't really a con.
We loved the taste of the Christmas Wreath.
