I remember my mum savouring the opening of her Christmas box of chocolates, always the same dark chocolates that we knew she loved. She removed the cellophane and inhaled their scent, hmmm lovely! She always loved the anticipation of what was to come. Back then, in the sixties, there wasn't the same variety of chocolates available that we now have. The main ones Milk Tray, Black Magic, Dairy Box were the ones I remember. Later came 'After Eight', very popular as an alternative and a particular favourite of mine. My Father still buys me a box every year, now in his nineties he really is a creature of habit. I doubt that I'll change him now, but for myself I really have moved on and I really enjoy sampling all the wonderful chocolates that BasketsGalore chooses for their Chocolate Gift Baskets.
You all know by now that we never sell anything that we don't love ourselves and so we regularly hold taste testing events in the office. Well last week, being the end of the month, there were a few boxes of Lindt Chocolates kindly donated by management for the staff & their families to enjoy! Normally we all try to resist eating chocolate, but temptation was too much and we all succumbed. The Swiss Luxury Selection, came under our scrutiny and my favourite was Coeur de L'Orange as was Victoria's Mum's, Lynne and Victoria both liked Caramelita, her Dad liked Amande Croquante, yes Victoria volunteered her family for taste testing too. Jonny liked Macchiato- 'a star shaped sensation' and couldn't remember what ones his girlfriend liked which poses the question, 'did she get any?' Although this particular batch of Lindt Luxury Selection, has now gone, the new Lindt Master Chocolatier Collection, ' a range of exquisite luxury chocolate gifts', has just been ordered for our Christmas Gift Baskets and Hampers.
