Is bosting good or bad? I haven't tasted any Godiva choc. Just thinking of presents.

I always smile when I see companies boasting "We only use the finest ingredients" I am waiting for the day when someone writes "We use a load of cheap, nasty-tasting cack in our products but charge you the earth for them"


 


I am sure Godiva are wonderful however.

Old but spicey!

I bought a box of Godiva chocs from the airport on my way back from Canada. There were 16 in the box but it was a different box. Mine were called Truffes (no there was no 'l' it was definitely double 'f') they were in a square box and the chocs were arranged in 4 rows of 4. Although two were coffee flavour the rest were gorgeous. There were creams such as pear and apricot as well as a nice coconut one.


The only problem I had was identifying them as several looked the same and the key was not much help. I would have prefered it if the key matched the placement of the chocs for ease of identification.

The bars are overpriced at 3.50 each they aren't all that great for the little bars.. We have godiva stores in our malls.

if i also remember right they were ranked here pretty low as far as quality. compared to better end chocolates it was mainly name popularity. They also sell godiva here in our airport forgot about that one..
