3.0 out of 5 stars Good Chocolate not a good presentation, December 4, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ghirardelli Chocolate Deluxe Holiday Tower (Grocery)
Ghirardelli Chocolate is awesome, but you are not getting much for the price. Also, not a good presentation. The boxes are cheap thin cardboard ... the type where one piece folds into the entire box. This is the type of cardboard that is about as thick as a hardpack of cigarettes. Frankly it would look sort of embarrassing if given where a 40 - 60 dollar gift would be appropriate, but not if a 10 - 20 dollar gift would be appropriate.
We have given and received stuff like this in the past, some had such high quality attractive cardboard boxes that we didn't want to throw them away. A budget limited friend saw some and grabbed them to decorate shelves in her apartment.
You can get gift packages like that for about 10 bucks a pound with high quality sweets and chocolates.

OK if you have tons of money to waste, and want to honor either Amazon or Ghiradelli with a pretty big profit margin.
I'll still give it 3 stars because Ghirardelli does make excellent chocolate, but I can find the bars and squares in local stores. I can buy the cocoa mix (also excellent) in bulk. It shouldn't be That! expensive per pound with such a poor presentation.

I should also add that this is NOT 4 lbs of chocolate. I don't have a small scale and didn't add the individual package weights but it's about 2.5 lbs including the packs of cocoa mix.
