Delicious, European Chocolates from Merci - #Review & #Giveaway

I have a humongous sweet tooth and chocolate is one of my very favorite sweets but I can be pretty picky when it comes to finding the right chocolate to excite my palate.  I was recently contacted by Merci Chocolates, the finest assortment of European Chocolates and I jumped at the opportunity to try them out for myself.  I was more than pleasantly surprised by the rich, flavorful pieces and I have to admit, I only shared a couple of them with Josh and Ashton.

More Information on Merci
According to their website, "There is no better way of expressing heartfelt gratitude than with a gift that speaks for itself: merci Finest Assortment of European Chocolates."
"The delicious selection of rich European chocolates made from the finest ingredients available, provide indulgence and variety.  With flavors like Cream Truffle, Hazelnut-Almond, Praline-Creme and Dark Cream, merci will delight the palate."

"The idea for merci was born in 1965, when it began to win over people's hearts as the first individually wrapped gift-giving chocolate in Germany.  Nowadays, people in over 70 countries of the world - from Poland to Singapore, from Sweden to Slovenia - give merci as a gift."
This delicious box of merci European Chocolates included:

  • Milk Chocolate - Solid milk chocolate at it's smooth, creamy European best
  • Coffee and Cream - Rich, coffee flavored dark chocolate, atop a white chocolate base
  • Hazelnut-Almond - Delicate pieces of hazelnuts and almonds in smooth milk chocolate
  • Hazelnut Cream - Milk Chocolate filled with a smooth, creamy hazelnut cream
  • Dark Cream - Smooth, rich melt-in-your-mouth dark chocolate
  • Dark Mousse - Fluffy chocolate mousse wrapped in rich dark chocolate
  • Praline-Creme - Luscious milk chocolate with a smooth chocolate praline center

My Review
The wonderful people at merci sent me a box of their delicious chocolates to review and I have to say, these are incredible!  They come in a small, gift-sized box of 20 scrumptious chocolates are perfect to give this holiday season and the taste is just phenomenal!  With 7 different flavors to choose from, there is really something for everyone.  I thoroughly enjoyed the Hazelnut-Almond and Milk Chocolate and quickly ran out within just a few days.  These amazing chocolates are also very affordable so you can pick up one for everyone of your friends and family without breaking the budget.  I very highly recommend these chocolates to anyone looking to pick up something for someone that is hard to shop for or someone that just really enjoys chocolate.  This is a gift, I guarantee, that won't go to waste or be returned!  Best of all, you can find them at most stores near you!   After trying out these wonderful chocolates for myself I have decided to give a box to my parents and grandparents as a Thank You for all of their love and support over the years.
Shopaholic Rating: 5 out of 5 Shopping Bags - Delicious, Rich, European merci Chocolates are a gift you will be thanked over and over again for!  These are also the perfect last minute gift!
