Chocolates were not the same as pictured or description -
on April 10, 2014
The box is different from the one that is pictured. It doesn't have "KIRKLAND" on the box. Instead it shows "Truffettes de France". However it is labeled "Product of Canada".
Tried 2 - The chocolate has a waxy or shortening taste or rather tasteless, which you do not want from chocolates. The pieces are very firm and a little gritty.Leaving bits of fatty stuff in your mouth instead of melting away.
It is early spring and we get about 20 degrees about now and I found that these chocolates seemed like they melted and then chilled again, a bit clumpy; leading me to believe that they were being stored improperly.
After getting these, I went and read the reviews. It seems like some people got the real thing and some people got these little lumps of shortening, barely dusted in cocoa that resemble something you would leave in the loo rather than eat.
Very disappointed, I called Amazon customer service explained what was sent and they refunded me in full and I threw out the chocolates. Amazon said they would initiate a bin check to see what is happening.
I would not recommend this to anyone at this time. Try buying locally or try another chocolate or seller. I wish I hadn't eaten the two I did. I can't help but think they looked more like........
