9th November: Thorntons Chocolate Liqueur
Happy Friday all!! To greet the weekend I have a post for you that is a little different to our traditional chocolate reviews! Indeed today I bring you my thoughts on a chocolate liqueur. This 70cl bottle was sent to me by my pals at Thorntons, and it came billed as 'chocolate flavoured cream liqueur made with Vodka at 17% alcohol'. I'm not much a drinker myself (I especially avoid spirits!), but I do like the odd social one or two :-)
In order to give this Thorntons offering a credible run on the ChocolateMission rating system I dusted down the scoring charts I used on my previous ChocolateMission hot chocolate project that I did a few years back. As you will see below the criteria now accommodates for 'drinkability' aka how pleasurable/easy it is to consume.
Overall would I recommend it!? Hmmm I dunno it depends what floats your boat. If your a Bailey's drinker seeking alternatives it would be worthy of a look at. If you do treat yourself to a bottle I urge you to act sensibly :-) You will realise rather quickly that it is all to easy to get down you :-) It certainly has Christmas potential!!
