November 14th: Artisan du Chocolat Gingerbread & Chocolate House
Indeed this Artisan du Chocolat Gingerbread & Chocolate House stood out the minute it came out the postage box. Having not seen it before I was instantly impressed with the quality of the packaging and presentation. The house was not built out of the flimsy cardboard material I expected - no this was a very purposely built, very well decorated house model that just oozed quality and class. Part of me felt terribly guilty disturbing the ribbon tied seal, though the prospect of the contents inside made me feel a lot more at ease once I had done so.
Overall I yet again have great pleasure saying what a tremendous product this was from Artisan du Chocolat. The quality of the total package from the decoration, chocolate and honeycomb, made this a product I can see appealing to both young and old. The quality of the Gingerbread & Chocolate House model made it stand apart from the majority of the Christmas products I have reviewed in the last few weeks, whilst the quality of the honeycomb was second to none. Being a dark chocolate fanboy I obviously adored the dark chocolate pieces, though the milk chocolate were not far off with their sweeter, creamier taste. If you are buying Artisan du Chocolat for your nearest and dearest this year I would feel very confident with your selection here if it is this that you eventually choose.
