We've had chocolate reviews we've had fudge reviews now it's time for a treat that combines both and swirls it together to make an extremely creamy sweet treat. Yes we have the Double Chocolate Toffee Fudge Swirl from House of Dorchester; made up of swirls of creamy milk + white chocolate with pieces of crunchy toffee and fudge dotted throughout.
With products like this that sell themselves as big chunky pieces of chocolate I was really hoping that when I opened the bag they were contained in that the chunks offered wouldn't be misely little Scrooge offerings...and I am so glad to say that they were not! Inside the bag it contained good generous thick chunks of chocolate that looked so appetising and perfect for just munching away on or dunking in your cup of tea and letting the fudge and chocolate melt into one!
You definately have to have a sweet tooth to enjoy this product; although it wasn't overly sweet and did not cause any feelings of sickliness after eating it still probably wouldn't appeal to major dark chocolate lovers due to the addition of the sweetness of not only the fudge but the toffee and the white chocolate.
Despite the greater sweetness of this product the classic milky creamy flavours of both the milk and white chocolate were still allowed to make an appearance and there was no horrific burning feeling of sugar in the back of the throat! The fudge was soft, chewy, and melted in the mouth with wonderful vanilla notes whilst the toffee offered a good texture change providing a nice crunch.
If you're looking for something nice, sweet and chocolatey that's really going to satisfy your craving for something sweet your much better off buying this than a big bar of commercial chocolate, it's absolutely perfect for sharing out between your friends at a party or just for hoarding all to yourself on a cold night in with a warm mug of tea. Extremely satisfying and delicious for those of sweeter tooth!
Taste - 7.1/10 - Good blend of milk + white chocolate and loved the addition of fudge + toffee.
Texture - 7.3/10 - Lovely thick substantial pieces of chocolate.
Appearance - 6.5/10 - An average looking appearance, nothing particularly mind blowing but nice none the less.
Price - 7.2/10 - I only paid £2.99 for these at TK Maxx. Quite a bargain if you ask me.
Overall - 7/10 - A respectable sweet chocolatey treat.
