Yesterday’s PC holiday treat of the day was more chocolate! President’s Choice Chocolate Fruit Fancies in fact.
Wow, these are perhaps the coolest looking chocolates I have ever seen! They do make me think I should be playing pool with them more than eating them but that did not stop us from trying these gleaming candies. Belgian chocolate, chocolate ganache and fruit puree made with all natural flavours and colours… too bad this treat is only available for a short period of time.
Nobody loves the combination of fruit and chocolate more than I do so I was excited to try each of the different flavours. The blue one was bilberry, a flavour that was new to me that was very powerful and fabulous, definitely my favourite. I gave it five out of five wooden spoons.
The mango was delicious, subtle and tropical, not too strong. I gave it four and a half out of five wooden spoons. Overall, my husband gave everything four and a half wooden spoons except for the apricot, he thought that one was perfect. You could really taste the apricot and it went perfectly with the hazelnuts in a white chocolate shell.
For me the two that were a little disappointing that I gave three and a half wooden spoons out of five were the kiwi and strawberry. The kiwi seem non-existence to me and the strawberry was not as strong as I would have liked. Also, when I sliced them open the did not seem quite as full of fruit filling as the photo on the box would indicate.
Still, I am so impressed. The price for the quality of this PC product is amazing. You get a 200 g box of 25 chocolates for only $8! What I love about this gift is it is so original. This is the perfect gift for the non-traditional hard-to-buy-for friend or family member. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed these chocolates and even though some of the flavours did not sing as much as others, I love the concept of this product so much I give it five out of five wooden spoons.
Why a perfect rating? This may not be THE treat for everyone but for that challenging person with a unique foodie perspective and personality, this will bring them much joy for under $10.
