Galaxy A Gift For You

Ok, so the Christmas products have been gracing our shelves for quite some time now and I think its about time that the Christmas reviews start to pop up here on Lot-O-Choc. The first one I have for you is from the guys at Mars who have created this new product, Galaxy Gift For You. This consists of a square present shaped chocolate, half pure solid Galaxy, the other half, Galaxy Caramel!

Galaxy A Gift For You

There's so many novelty chocolate products that come out around the festive season, so its nice to see that Mars have decided to bring something new to the table in this offering. The gift snaps into 2 halves easily, so would be perfect for sharing on a Christmassy night with your loved one, and excitingly enough I actually found it quite hard to tell which half was caramel and which half was solid chocolate before biting into it, leaving it a bit of a surprise for the receiver!

Now obviously the chocolate isn't for the connoisseur, with a relatively low cocoa content it is mainly sugar and carries the usual creamy sweet Galaxy flavours that is so often tasted in commercial chocolate, the caramel however seemed thicker and more luxurious than I've encountered in other Galaxy Caramel products and was pleased to see that when bitten into didn't run all over the place and cause a mess!

If you're looking for a chocolate product that will please the masses this will definitely brighten most sugar lovers faces on Christmas morning; the sweet distinct Galaxy flavour will certainly appeal to children and everyone out there with a sweet tooth. Whether for a present before Christmas, a snack on Christmas Eve or a delightful stocking filler I'm sure a lot of people will find time for this Galaxy Gift For You this Christmas.

Appearance - 8.2/10 - Looks really really pretty, I love festive novelty chocolate like this so I can't really complain!
Price - 8.4/10 - These are priced at around 69p, a perfect stocking filler price!
Overall - 7.3/10 - A lovely chocolate way to celebrate the festive season!


Virtually everywhere, you'll see these Galaxy Gift For You chocolates in supermarkets, newsagents etc.

Anyone who loves commercial chocolate, so most of the population! A great stocking filler idea.

  1. I agree, it was sweet. I like the look and shape of it though, something pretty about it.
