Guylian Temptations Chocolates

guylian seahorse temptations chocolatesNow, I know this isn’t a premium brand but it is probably the chocolate a lot of people associate with Christmas.  Guylian who make the praline filled chocolate shells have created a new product called Temptations for the Christmas market.

Now, I realise that these are marketed as a premium gift but for regular readers of this blog, you’ll know the quality of the chocolate does not put it into the “top notch” category.  Still, that doesn’t mean that with respect to their peers they aren’t great.

Individually wrapped, these are kinda fun.  You get the typical chocolate seahorse shape in three flavours; original praline, dark praline, and milk truffle.   These are not sophisticated and while I must admit I am neither a praline fan, nor a fan of this somewhat oily, very sweet chocolate, this is going to be the perfect gift for someone in your life I’m sure.  For me, it coats the inside of my mouth in oil and the extreme sweetness means I needed a cup of coffee to clear my palette but I know at the very least two friends who would rather these than Paul A Young chocolates.  Odd but true (I am working on them).

This isn’t great quality but it is fun and it is easily purchasable and they do have mass market appeal.  While it would be lovely to only have high quality chocolate available everywhere, there are far too many people who would prefer a box of these so don’t disappoint them 😉 But for yourself grab a Hotel Chocolat fruit and nut wreath… I know I sound obsessed but it really made an impression on me!

***FREEBIE FRIDAY*** I’m giving away a small box of these chocolates to someone who comments on this blog or comments on this facebook post!

***YAY*** lapsapchung wins the chocolates!!

    These look gorgeous – more “grown up” than the seashells. I’ve never thought there was anything really Christmassy about chocolate seashells, andat this timeof year we want Christmassy stuff!

    These are always yummy and never fail to impress! (Although having said that I last bought them over 2 years ago – three trips or so to Hotel Chocolat is the limits of my yearly chocolate budget!)

  45. Ayala says:

    I hope i win these…I should be on a diet but I figure that free chocolate means free calories…right?? ;O)

  46. barbeque123 says:

    sumptious, devine, forever mine

  47. flyingdutchman says:

    Chocolates can be enjoyed as part of a balanced diet. Just don’t eat the whole box in one sitting! (cardboard isn’t that tasty ;))

  48. JaneyD says:

    Ohh these are delicious and would be a nice treat for the family on xmas day

  49. Domi says:

    Oh! So yummy.

  50. chrissie4 says:

  51. pukkapad says:

    Yum – Love Guylian! x

  52. kemo_2002 says:

    love these chocs:) xxx

  53. velladabest1 says:

    enter me plesae!

  54. Bonosfly says:

    What a great idea! Having to go to the effort of taking off the wrapper will use up more calories therefore eating a whole box of those would be more healthy than eating a whole box of the regular ones. Do I sound convincing? 🙂

    Hmmmm these look good, I am such a chocoholic!
