Toffee Viennese

Toffee Viennese

Milk chocolate teacakes – These little teacakes were akin to chocolate coated marshmallows. For lovers of marshmallows, this would be an ideal treat as the bulk of the teacake was essentially marshmallows. In fact, even though you could see a biscuit-like layer forming the base of the teacake, you could barely detect its crunchiness. The marshmallows were simply too fluffy and thick. On the whole, the combination of milk chocolates and marshmallows made the entire teacake pretty sweet.

Chocolate cream caramel wafers – Alternating layers of chocolate cream caramel and wafers. The caramel was pretty starchy and stuck to our teeth. The wafer was also not crispy.

Fully coated milk chocolate digestives – This was our favourite within the assortment box. The digestive biscuits were crunchy, not too sweet, and exuded a wheat-like fragrance. Coupled with the milk chocolate, it was a delectable afternoon treat.

Viennese toffee – This was our favourite as well! It was made up of a layer of Scottish shortbread, which is buttery with a tinge of saltiness. Atop this crunchy layer was a layer of very soft caramel. The entire biscuit was then encased in milk chocolate. On the whole, the Viennese toffee was rather sweet and for those without a sweet tooth, this sweet treat might be a little too overwhelming.
