Fruity Jelly, Luxury Liquorice, Delicious Dark Chocolate and Moreish Marzipan


Gelco assorted fruit jellies, sweet and sour mix at TAOS Gifts
A perfect mix of sweet and sour

Customer satisfaction is very important to us here at TAOS Gifts, so when I was asked to sample the latest delights write about the latest confectionary in stock I jumped for joy at the chance. I take my work very seriously so this time I made sure I was alone in the office.

The first sample I chose from the box was a red fruity liquorice stick with fondant filling,  from the Assorted Fruit Jellies and Sour Sticks pack.

The sharp sherbet was the first thing to hit my taste buds, making my mouth water, followed by very satisfying chewy and fruity flavoured sweet, it was so tasty I just had to have another from the pack.. and another…and another. Very tangy and tasty.

After such a tangy experience I thought I’d try the Fruity Jellies from the same pack, they are deliciously juicy and sweet, some flavours are chewier than others and the soft ones calmed my tingling taste buds.

Gelco Sour Jellies and Liquorice Fondant Sticks are  a great combination for anyone with a sweet tooth, a big thumbs up here for the mix of  tasty Italian Sweets.

Being a huge Liquorice fan I was keen to sample the Saint Valentines Liquorice (again)

Heaven in a Tin

There has been some debate in the office over which is best, the Saint Valentines Soft Finnish Liquorice Sticks or the Saint Valentines Hard Traditional Gourmet Liquorice.

Putting aside the fact that I am a lifelong liquorice lover and I thoroughly enjoyed each and every sample, I would say only buy the soft Liquorice sticks, they are delicious, if you like liquorice you will love these!

The Hard Liquorice is very rich, chewy, just the right texture, but I don’t think you’ll like it so don’t buy any, because I’m planning on buying all of the remaining stock.

Honestly? It’s the very best Liquorice I’ve ever tasted!

Saint Valentines Traditional Gourmet Liquorice is presented in a stylish tin that contains a mixture of  filled liquorice shapes (cutz), twists and stic in flavours such as chocolate, apple, strawberry, banana and tutti frutti.

A tasty and perfect Christmas Gift for any Liquorice fan!

I was deliciously satisfied after my long, sweet testing break, so I saved the other contents until later.

It took a few hours before the Marzipan finally broke my willpower, with its bright packaging and zesty promises I just couldn’t resist. I chose the Lemon Long Stick of Niederegger Marzipan covered in smooth milk chocolate.

With six bite size pieces of rich Zesty Lemon  Marzipan covered with melt in the mouth milk chocolate they are perfect small gifts or indulgent treats. Bursting with so much fruity flavour I’m certain it must count as one of your 5-a-day!

Dark Chocolate Guylian Belgian Chocolate at TAOS Gifts
Delicious, Rich Dark Guylian Belgian Chocolate

After Liquorice, my next favourite thing is dark chocolate, so for me it made sense to save this bar until last.

Sadly it was the end of the working day and I was forced to share it with my partner.

As I love Guylian Dark Belgian Chocolate I thought I’d ask him for his honest review.

Dark, Rich, Guylian, Quality, Mmmm,

Was the general review, but as soon as he said it was too rich to eat a whole bar, I kindly offered to help. Well, after all it is my job and it’s not fair to delegate.
As I knew it would be, smooth very rich with 72% Cocoa, delicious and immensely satisfying.

Very Highly recommended!
