Order if you are a fan of stale. old. tasteless chocolate.
on February 14, 2016
If one is a connoisseur of stale chocolate with almonds that are so hard and dry that they might have originated from the pyramids at the time of King Tut, then by all means buy this basket. Preferably for someone you detest, since it is a complete disappointment. I had long thought that Godiva was an excellent maker of chocolates. With this box of chocolates- the chocolates in places having turned white from fat bloom- announcing that it is indeed old, I have received an education that I have been misinformed. Indeed, the chocolates in this box are somewhat less acceptable than the pathetic chocolate dime stores used to sell and can still be found lurking on grocery store shelves around this time of year.. Additionally, the box only has candy on the top. The candy bars have been taped together in the most annoying way. Under the layer of taped candy bars on the top the box, the box is is filled with a kind of tan paper confetti. We unfortunately ordered some for Valentine's Day. This pathetic, stale box of candy certainly resulted in Valentine's Day being memorable for us. But not in a good way.
