It seems like one of the major ideas in the chocolate market at the moment is the personalisation of chocolate gifts; I remember as a young child the idea of Thornton's piping onto your chocolate plaques for you - to add that extra special personal touch, but things have advanced on from then and now from House of Dorchester you can send someone a message in chocolate bars!
The folks at HoD were nice enough to send me a nice Christmas surprise comprising of a message complete with little bars of chocolate wishing me a Merry Christmas; you have the option of choosing a message to spell out with 24 miniature bars of milk chocolate and can even choose different add in bars showing messages such as 'Merry Christmas', 'I Love You' & 'Happy Birthday' for example.
What I most liked about this idea is that each bar/letter, is individually wrapped that means that not only is this chocolate message great for sharing out between friends but you also don't have to worry about the other bars getting air in them once you open the package. You are free to come and nibble as you please!
The milk chocolate inside each of the bars is your standard creamy sweet milk chocolate that will please the majority of chocolate lovers this Christmas and isn't anything too strange or out there! I can just imagine many a folk cracking these out on Christmas Night to share between the family...or if you decide to keep these on until the New Year the bars are the perfect snack size if you're trying to eat healthier but don't want to stray too far off course!
Taste - 6.7/10 - Your usual sweet creamy milk chocolate, nothing particularly of real point of noting.
Texture - 6.7/10 - Creamy and melt in the mouth, plus good small bar sizes.
Appearance - 7.9/10 - Customisable and looks something a bit more personalised.
Price - 7.6/10 - For 24 mini bars of chocolate the cost is £9.99 + P&P, pretty good value I think.
Overall - 7.2/10 - A nice little touch to add to someones Christmas gift.
This is completely customisable so could be given to adults & children alike.
