Monday Coffee Break, confectionery testing time, yummy!

Cherry liqueur, milk chocolate coated cherry
Buy me now, I'm delicious

It’s hard work, but someone has to do it, today I am testing confectionery for TAOS Gifts.

I have before me a line up of goodies on my desk, so which to choose first?

Tough one!

The Marzipan Fruits look mouth-wateringly yummy, but the Cherries in Liqueur screamed “Eat Me!” 😯

So, visual appeal, yes, beautifully wrapped in gold foil with the shape of the chocolate teasing me through its wrapper.

The chocolate melts in the mouth, but I was impatient and had to chew, and wow!

The Liqueur melts dreamily into your mouth with the chocolate, followed by a whole cherry that was enveloped in this little piece of chocolate heaven!

Going back to the sweet line up on my desk, I pick up a Peachy marzipan fruit shape. It looks just like a mini peach, and tastes fabulously fruity!

Next was the Cherry marzipan fruit, my sweet tooth is totally satisfied with these little fruity shapes. 8)

Not only do they taste as good as they look, I think they’d be brilliant for decorating home-made cakes as well as serving on a dish at parties or using as party bag fillers or wedding favours.

I have no packaging for the chocolate sticks, just a list giving me clues as to what they might be… and well, they’re chocolate sticks so I’m fine with that! 😀

The first one smells orangey, I don’t like orange creme chocolates so I panic a little 😕  but decide to brave it anyway (things I do in the name of work)

I bite into it and it’s like orange Jaffa gorgeousness, it’s zesty too and…

I think I’ll hide these from my children.

Jawbreakers novelty candy for children

No such luck!

I was rudely interrupted during my extended and rather moreish coffee break by my teenage Son and Daughter, I reluctantly share…

“Mmm, not sure what they are, but they’re quite nice, they taste like Jaffa cakes” my Teenage Daughter says as she munches her way through an orange chocolate stick.

Funny faces all round as my teenage Son melodramatically bites into a chocolate Lemon stick, just as tangy and zesty as the delicious orange we all agree, Son, no longer pulling crazy faces asks “can I have another please”

I remind my offspring I’m still at work and squirrel away my project until they leave the office. 😳

TAOS gifts have plenty of fun novelty sweets for the children so you can enjoy the more luxury products in peace, mine love the Character Candy novelties.

It’s getting tough to choose from my pile of goodies now, so lucky dip time….

Liquorice has always been a favourite of mine, especially the really hard liquorice, I’ve got two big chunks here, one hard and one soft.

Equally as delicious, I’d like some more to test please boss if you’re reading this. 😆

I close my eyes and pick another delicious sample from the collection, and bite into an instant kick of ginger, wonderful!

To my delight the next few sticks are the same, dark delicious chocolate with the unmistakable tang of fresh ginger.

Time for another coffee break I think, this is hard work! 😛


Love hearts traditional candy at TAOS gifts
Lots of traditional old favourites as well as luxury chocolate

My work here is done, I now have just two delicious chunks of chocolate before me, nice and nutty, just the way I like it.

Bitter dark chocolate with a distinct nutty flavour as soon as you pop one in your mouth, a mouth-watering crunch as you bite into the rich, crunchy Walnut centre.


I’ll be back!  8)
