*** Buyer Beware: Note that all negative reviews are from Amazon verified purchases. The positive reviews may be shills! ***

The "tower" is less than 1 foot and most of the stuff inside is paper straw filling. Imagine going out to the grocery store and getting a few random bags of low-quality chocolate and stuffing them inside a box along with straw. Hardly an item worth giving as a gift. Unfortunately, what you see in the picture is not what you get. I am not sure how other reviewers can give this 5 stars. I can only assume this is an item that's fulfilled locally and therefore quality varies.

The items inside are worth less than 1/4 the price of the box. The only decent chocolate inside are the Ghiradelli squares. The peanuts inside the peanut covered chocolates had gone bad.

Get something else. It's almost embarrassing to give this as a gift.

You've spoken, We've listened.

After eliminating all the shred, this gift tower has been enhanced with an increased quantity of chocolates.

Tower dimensions still stand at 6" x 6" x 13" High

This was supposed to be a present for our neighbors but unfortunately we decided not to give it to them because a very disappointing item. The pictures on Amazon are quite deceptive giving the impression that it's a large box or tower. But the actual tower is barely taller than a bottle of wine and contains chocolate for no more than a couple of people.

For $40, it's extremely overpriced. I'd look for something bigger if you want to give this as a family present.

This item had a minimal amount of candy and the rest was unedible filler. It's embarrassing when you are giving this as a gift to someone. The photography looks wonderful in the picture, but it makes you think your getting a decent amount of candy for the price. I could have spent the money elsewhere and received better quality and quantity.

I cannot accurately review this product seeing as how it was in transit so long that it was melted and solidified so many times that all of the items inside were in some interesting looking blobs.......will never order any products like this again...

I had chosen this gift for my wifes birthday.
I chose this mainly because of the assortment of chocolates displayed in the picture
However when the gift reached my wife, I was extremely disappointed.
The Boxes had one layer of chocolate,while the rest of the box is filled with thrash. Its a complete mockery of a gift.

Complete Waste of Money

After reading the reviews, and noticing that most if not all of the positive reviews were from the chocolate company, I was really doubting whether I'd made a good choice - I got this as a Christmas gift for my mom - and it just got here. There really isn't any filler except in the smallest two boxes, and that's minimal - the rest is chocolate. The tower isn't as big as it looks - the pictures are a bit decieving, but I wanted a treat, not enough chocolate to make someone turn inside out from the sugar high. Overall, I'm pleased with it, though I probably wouldn't get it again.

I sent two of these. Neither of the recipients had received the note that I had entered, so had no idea who had orginally sent them the gifts

Bought this for my mother for her birthday and I am embarrassed to give it to her. Very small and cheap looking. Should have cost no more than 10 dollars!

The product is smaller than I thought, but was packed with a decent amount of items. Nothing tasted stale and it all was pretty good.

HOWEVER

I got it for $15 just before the holidays as a lightning deal or daily deal or something. I would pay $15 again for this as a gift without thinking twice. I would think a little and still get it at $19.99 as an easy gift. BUT, as I write this it is $35, no way I would ever pay that for this. A little of reviews say there was little chocolate and a lot of paper filling, the makers responded saying for 2012 they changed that, I can confirm mine was all food itmes, no paper filling, and it is an acceptable amount for the $15-$20 range, and the boxes themselves are fairly nice the way it is packaged.

So I am happy with my purchase at the price I paid and would give it 5 stars. Priced as is now though, not worth it. But it gets 5 because I am reviewing my experience.

This was a Mothers' Day gift -- my mom said everything was delicious and didn't last long! Great for any chocolate lover.
