I never thought I would see that day when I extolled Quality Street over Roses but that day is here. 'Got a tin of these from a workmate at Xmas. Exteriorly the tin look ok. But just don't open it and keep thinking nothing has changed. It has. Sickly. Un-subtle flavours .. in fact most taste the same as each other ... the texture, the chocolates themselves are mere shadows of what used to be the best of the 'bulk choccies' ... now.. you must buy in following order and NEVER ... I repeat NEVER buy Roses.
If money is no object then Hotel Chocolat really IS what Thorntons used to be .. another casualty in the profits-over-quality business
Motto: If it aint broke .. don't remanufacture it
