I am a bit of a foodie, I enjoy cooking, eating and trying out all sorts of different foods so I was excited to get to sample some items from The Fine Harvest this week. I was very nice and shared it all with my husband though! The Fine Harvest sell a selection of foods including chocolate, spreads, oils, herb and spices each carefully selected. The founders Andy and Alina carefully choose ingredients and snacks that are natural and good for your body. They produce their own foods as well as stocking over brands they’ve examined and selected. I admit I have a bit of a sweet tooth so I was delighted to be sent some of their chocolate products to try. I was sent a Chrissy & Co. Belgium Chocolate Brazil Nuts Gift Box and a The Fine Harvest Luxury Handmade Chocolate Gift Box.

I decided to try the box of handmade chocolates first. The chocolates are presented in a simple cardboard box and it has some information on the back about how the chocolates are crafted. The box contained eight chocolate discs in four different flavours. Each one was a perfect and very thick circle. But they certainly weren’t usual, run of the mill flavours that you get in most boxes of chocolates. The four flavours are Milk Chocolate Tahini, Dark Chocolate Sea Salt, Milk Chocolate Kefir and Dark Chocolate Honey & Bee Pollen. I decided to go straight for the sea salt first. It was absolutely delicious. I think chocolate, especially a large chunk, can sometimes be a bit sickly but the sea salt really offset the sweetness with a sharp tang.  I think this was my favourite flavour in the box. Next I tried the honey and bee pollen. It had a lovely taste, the honey was very subtle though but still enjoyable. As they were quite a rich treat I decided to wait to try the other two flavours the next evening. (My husband on the other hand ate all four of his in a matter of minutes!) I thought the kefir was quite unusual tasting with the tart kefir making an interesting mix with the milk chocolate. Finally I tried the tahini flavour which again was lovely with the earthy tahini taste offsetting the sweet milk chocolate.

Overall these are a delicious little box of chocolates which I feel will make an ideal Christmas gift for a chocolate lover or a foodie in your life who loves to try new tastes and flavours. All the flavours are so unusual but delightful and they are made from high quality, all natural ingredients. Each one is handcrafted using the finest cocoa beans. These are so much more special than a mass produced box. Also if you are wanting to post them as a gift, they are able to fit through a letterbox.

Next we tasted the chocolate Brazil nuts. They came packaged in a patterned cardboard box which is biodegradable and recyclable. I think that’s fantastic as I’m actively trying to find more environmentally friendly products. Inside I was pleased to see the box was packed full of Brazil nuts. Each one was coated in a really thick layer of chocolate and again they are all natural with no added preservatives, flavourings or additives. Chocolate covered Brazil nuts are one of my favourite evening snacks and these are some of the best I’ve tried. They were the perfect mix of crunchy nut and silky, smooth chocolate. These did not hang around long, they were extremely moorish. Tasty, luxurious and beautifully packaged these would make a well appreciated Christmas gift this year.
