I drop shipped these “Award Winning” hazlenut chocolates to my mom when she was in the hospital. About a month later I was able to visit her. In person, the rectangular chocolates are more like fudge squares, and they had a fudgie consistency. I thought the flavor was kind of bland. My mom–who loves chocolate–only ate two candies out of one of the boxes and left the rest.
Several months earlier I had also sent an Empress Gift Box, Assorted Gem Gift Box, 11.5-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 2), and my mom had said she liked those. (She also ate them, so I never got to try them myself.) I think the Gem candies were more like normal chocolate and might be a better choice if you are looking for chocolates to send over Amazon. I had taken the chance on the Hazlenut Truffles because the Gems had gone over well.
I’m giving the Hazlenut Truffles two stars, because I love the idea of several small boxes of chocolates in a bundle, where you can order nice candy and give a box to as many as three people for a reasonable price. (The Empress Chocolate prices seem to fluctuate between ~$14 and ~$25.) I thought the presentation was decent, but the hazlenut candies themselves just weren’t that good.
I bought a few boxes of the hazelnut chocolates earlier this week to give out to my family and friends for Christmas, and ended up opening a box myself to sample one piece myself (I’m a chocoholic). It was delicious, and me and my husband ended up eating the entire box that night! These chocolates are better than those of comparable companies and are lighter on the pocket.
