Nestlé Dairy Box
Nestlé’s Dairy Box has always struck me as a very middle of the road box of chocolates, never really tempting and hence it’s a little unsurprising that up to now I’d never actually reviewed them up until now. Nestlé’s answer to Cadbury’s Milk Tray, this is a 200g box consisted solely of milk chocolates with various fillings.
There are ten varieties of chocolates, with the box containing two of each type. Three of them are almond which is a little boring, and there is also a hazelnut chocolate and a praline chocolate (with chopped almonds in), so half your box contains nuts. The other half is also a little unremarkable – caramel, two fruits (orange and raspberry) and two truffles.
The chocolates themselves actually look quite nice, though clearly they’re all made identically in a factory. The Caramel Creme was quite nice, I was expecting runny caramel but it was instead almost a thick truffle with a caramel taste. The others were nice, but as someone who’s been spoiled by great chocolate over the years I found them to just be a little plain.
For the price though (just £1.99 for the box) this is a great deal, and would make an inexpensive gift or something for a night in with a loved one, just don’t expect anything you haven’t had before.
