I am not a nutty person. Well.. I am nuts but the edible sort aren't really my thing. I can enjoy them up to a certain point and then my throat begins to feel funny. Luckily, I don't have to much of a problem with almonds (They are not technically nuts, I know!) and hazelnuts which is what these Thomas J. Fudge's Mouthwatering Milk Chocolate Florentines are made from. Winner!
I picked up the very suave looking box in Tesco for £2.69. The milk chocolate coated Florentines contain cranberries, sultanas, mixed peel, hazelnuts as well as the signature almonds.
Inside contained 8 Florentines which were presented in a plastic tray within a cute cardboard outer.
The Florentines smelt amazing - Chocolatey with sweet caramel tones! They had some serious crunch to them thanks to being jam packed with almonds. Taste wise, the mixed peel really shone through with plenty of nuttiness coming from the almonds and hazelnuts. They were pleasantly sweet with a pop of tartness from the cranberries although I have to admit, they were few and far between. A generous layer of smooth creamy chocolate coated one side of the super chewy and sticky almond mixture. There was also a slight saltiness which created the perfect balance of flavours.
Overall, these Florentines were pretty darn fabulous! It is a shame that there aren't more than 8 in a box as they certainly didn't stick around for long! A few more cranberries and I'd be giving these top marks.. Its a 4.5 out of 5 from me!
