The Mixed Chocolate Selection from Rococo is, in my opinion, the collection that best represents the brand itself. The packaging is lush, precious and instantly recognisable. The smell is delicious and the 20 hand-made chocolates almost look too good to eat.
Retailing at £25.00, the selection, in a pretty box with a dove design, offers dark, milk and white chocolate filled with intriguing and sensual flavours. Some have cheeky names such as Venus Nipples: a coffee truffle covered in white chocolate and topped with a chocolate coffee bean.
The eclectic array of chocolates includes Rose and Violet Creams in Dark Chocolate, Dark Chocolate-Coated Stem Ginger, Pink Champagne and Dark Chilli Chocolate Truffles, Almond Marzipans, Lemon Praline, Orange with Mango and Passion Fruit Jelly ganache in Milk Chocolate and last but not least Rose, Raspberry and Lychee Ganache in Dark Chocolate.
There is a common theme running throughout the selection: all Rococo’s chocolates are bold.
