Who doesn’t like chocolate? OK probably some people, but I’m going to guess that if you’re reading this review then you’re someone that does.
I love all kinds of chocolate and with Easter coming up, everything’s going egg shaped, but in a very good way!
We’re so lucky here in the UK as we have some of the best chocolate in the world. I know of (and have heard stories of) quite a few people who live abroad asking for care packages of Cadburys chocolate as they simply can’t get it wherever they are in the world. Well, those people (and if you just enjoy chocolate) are going to LOVE this subscription box.
Jolly Goods specialise in subscription boxes of British chocolate and they ship anywhere in the world. Yep, anywhere in the world, with prices starting from as little as £7.99.
I was sent an Easter-themed box, the Cadburys Eggstravaganza Medium Box. This contained a Cadburys Creme Egg Easter egg, two Creme Eggs, two Twirl bars, two small boxes of Mini Eggs and a little chick. I like all of these chocolates so I loved this box.
The box itself is very Best of British with the Union Flag proudly hiding the goods inside.
Everything was really well packaged and the box it all came in was sturdy and packed full of tissue paper and foam bits to protect the chocolatey cargo. As you can see from the photo below, there was no way anything was going to get damaged in transit.
This attention to detail and the packaging made unwrapping everything much more fun too, as I didn’t instantly know what was inside.
The Twirl bars and mini eggs were wrapped in foil – I’m guessing to protect them from warmer temperatures – while the bigger Easter egg was kept safe in some bubble wrap.
After unpacking the box, everything was in perfect condition – no melted chocolate here – and the little chick was a cute additional touch.
I’ve got to admit that between my husband and I (and our very sweet tooth) the chocolate didn’t last so long!
If you’ve never had Mini Eggs before these are great – sugar coated small chocolate eggs which crunch then melt in your mouth. The Twirl bars are a chocolate lover’s dream as they are so velvety and satisfying while the fondant centre Creme Eggs are super sweet and so moreish. Oh and what is it that makes chocolate taste so good when it’s in the form of an Easter egg? I don’t know, but the chocolate egg was so good.
I’ve got to say I loved this box and the idea behind it. I’m sure there are so many people who would love to receive one of these in the post as a gift, and that’s not including any ex-pats who struggle to get their British chocolate fix while in sunnier climates.
The only negatives I would have to say about this box is that I think at £12.99 it’s a bit expensive for what you get. For that kind of price I would maybe expect a bit more in the box or for it to include some handmade, artisan chocolate for something a bit more special.
