Oh yak yak, too much sugar!! I think white chocolate is definately my least favourite type of chocolate, if you even class it as a chocolate which some people don't since it actually doesn't contain the cocoa bean! I quite like white chocolate in truffle and filled chocolate form but just solid white chocolate and I always find it too sweet. This was no exception, actually it was worse than that, it was so sweet it felt like it was burning my mouth slowly; I always find with white chocolate as well the texture seems so much more waxy, it just doesn't give me the same warm feeling that milk chocolate gives me or the lucious complexity of dark chocolate.
I haven't actually found a Thornton's chocolate I've fell in love with, I just always feel that they're too sugary, both the filled chocolates and the normal chocolates, come on Thornton's give me something to change my mind!!
Taste -4/10 - Mouth melting from over load of sugar, throat burning, not nice!
Texture 6/10 - Slightly creamy but always feel that white chocolate has a strange waxy feel.
Apperance - 8/10 - The snowman is cute and for novelty appeal the apperance of this is probably the best.
Price - 7/10 - This was another sales purchase at only £1.50 I think it was, I believe this is a fair price for it but there's no way I would pay regular price.
Overall - 5/10 - Although good on apperance and sales price the taste just let it down too much for me to consider giving it over half marks, I have yet to find a white chocolate that wows me!
