Thorntons Chocolate Selection

Thorntons is hailed as a slightly more upscale chocolate brand in UK, compared to Cadbury, possessing their own retail shop but yet garnering the same amount of mass market appeal. We were delighted to find this UK brand in Singapore. A box of Thorntons’ indulgently creamy truffles, light mousses and smooth pralines from the Premium collection combined with a range of classic favourites from the Classic collection covered in milk, dark and white chocolate.  There were a total 30 chocolate pieces, of 10 different flavours. And strangely, these turned up to be dirt cheap, unlikely most other UK imported snacks.

Vanilla Velvet – A delicate mousse with a hint of vanilla coated in white and dark chocolate
Caramel Divine – Deliciously soft and creamy caramel truffle in a double layer of milk chocolate, with ruffles of white chocolate
Cafe Latte – Roasted coffee and cream whipped into a light mousse, encased in white chocolate and sprinkled with ground coffee
Dual Layered Praline – A layer of white and milk praline, smothered in milk chocolate
Lemon Mousse – A light and zesty mousse made with lemon puree and double cream covered in milk chocolate
Honeycomb Crunch – Velvety milk chocolate bursting with crispy honeycomb and sugar-roasted hazelnut croquant
Orange Zest – A zingy centre combining delicate orange peel pieces and a luscious orange preserve smothered in dark chocolate
Chocolate Truffle – An indulgently smooth chocolate truffle with a hint of vanilla covered in milk chocolate
Special Toffee Truffle – Deliciously rich caramel truffle with our special toffee pieces sprinkled between two layers of dark chocolate
Creamy Fudge – Melt in the mouth light and creamy fudge smothered in milk chocolate

The honeycomb crunch was the winner in this series due the variation in texture arising from the introduction of crunchy honeycomb bits into the fillings. The lemon mousse and orange zest caught us by surprise. They were unexpectedly delicious and refreshing without any hint of artificial flavoured lemon or orange taste. The creamy fudge was the typical chewy sticky Scottish fudge which was coated in milk chocolate. The box of chocolates were so sinfully attractive and satisfying that we easily cleaned off the 10 different flavours at a go.

    • Yup, there are 30 pieces inside of 10 different flavours, and NTUC Fairprice sells it at $14.90.. In our opinion, it’s a good deal 🙂

    • Hi Alice, we bought it from the Fairprice at Eastpoint Shopping Centre at Simei. When we bought it, there were only 2 boxes left, not too sure if there’s still stock..
