Right guys and girls, Christmas believe it not is fast approaching, so it is about time I got on the case informing you all of the latest chocolate selection boxes and assortments gracing the UK marketplace this year. As you may recall, Elizabeth Shaw recently sent me a rather large gift hamper that contained many of their newest products. Within this, they included both 250.0g and 200.0g selection boxes of their Elizabeth Shaw Chocolate Crisp Collection. Quite why this assortment comes in these two such similar sizes I do not know, but I can inform you that they both contained the four flavours of Crisp Chocolates: Butterscotch, Caramel, Cocoa and Honeycomb.
Weight aside, to make a wider comparison of the two different boxes, I would say the flat 200.0g box is probably the better looking aesthetically and would probably be the more suited option if gifting or pulling out for a dinner party. Although containing fewer chocolates, I thought the presentation style was superior with the fold up top and inner tray certainly better in design and layout compared to the simple 'bucket' style of the 250.0g. Here are my thoughts on the chocolates:
Overall I've tried some pretty taste chocolates from these guys over the last few months but I'm afraid this isn't a selection box I can recommend you buy for the upcoming holidays. It never helps having such a lacklustre dark chocolate offering at the heart of two of the four pieces, though it was also many of the flavours that also disappointed me. Luckily enough I still have the Elizabeth Shaw Mint Collection to review in the next few weeks so I hope I can be a little more positive in my review of that. These Elizabeth Shaw Chocolate Crisp collections are probably best avoided though.
