Nice box of Chocolates
on December 6, 2012
This box contains a package inside with it's separate bow just like pictured. The Brown box is about 8.5 inches high and contains 80 Ghirardelli squares. The packaging is a little confusing because the outside brown package states the weight is 18.76 oz but the cellophane package inside states 30 oz ( a 2nd label on the bottom of the cellophane package). That is correct for 80 squares, it's 30 oz of premium chocolate squares.
Ghirardelli makes great chocolate and this should be a wonderful appreciation gift for chocolate lovers. When I took the chocolates out of the cellophane package and placed them back in the box they barely fit. This is what an appreciation gift should be like, folks are often taken back when there is tons of packing material inside instead of treats. The cylinder comes in a box that's slightly larger but Amazon placed it in an even larger box with proper packing material and none of my little squares arrived broken.
It's not a Holiday theme but the presentation is nice with an attractive finish on the sturdy cardboard box, a nice Ghirardelli logo and a golden outline of the SF skyline below. The front and back of the cylindrical package are the same and the cylinder is flattened on each side with full Ghirardelli lettering down the sides.
It contains dark, milk and creme filled squares, the same squares available in stores but a generous holiday portion and mix.
