I have had these chocolates as gifts a few times now and they never disappoint. They taste amazing, so much so that I treated myself this time.

November 24, 2023 | Anonymous

I have written a review for your chocolates before and while your chocolates are always wonderful your packaging is dull and uninteresting., especially as I buy them for gifts. Perhaps an extra cost for gift packaging would be possible .

This was a birthday present which was delivered on time. The recipient said that the rose and violet creams were probably the best she has ever had. And she loves rose and violet creams!

Another family favourite which we have enjoyed annually over a 30 year period. Delicious moorish chocolate with delightful centres.

December 20, 2022 | M Fincham-Jacques

I buy these every Xmas without fail from this company for friends who are rose & violet fiends & they tell me these are by far the best on the market!

I was given a box of these chocolates by a friend. They were so delicious I bought them as a gift for a beloved God-mother...and a different content, ie kirsch cherry liqueur chocolates for my brother, who could not wait to open them, tasted a couple and said, they were 'sublime'.....a word he would not usually use...so sublime is in his view the taste of a special Friars chocolate!

While the filler is perfect, suddenly the rose on top has been diluted to a few sprinkles. Not the same thing at all. Really disappointed, especially as we have buying these chocolates for many years.

August 11, 2022 | Sue Campbell

Love these chocolates from the first time of purchase, never alter in taste and quality, particularly the rose and violet creams, our favourite.

A beautifully packaged box of dark chocolates with delicious rose and violet centres – wonderful for any special occasion or just to give yourself or a loved one a treat.

July 14, 2022 | Rosemary Rodwell

This was a replacement for a box containing only Violet Creams which was wrongly sent.
I still haven't had confirmation that Friars have received the box of Violet Creams which I returned to them.
I have bought from Friars for a number of years and previously their service has always been impeccable.
The replacement box of Rose & Violet Creams tastes as good as ever.

July 12, 2022 | Penny Longman

Excellent service with very quick delivery. Chocolates were for a gift so I haven't tasted them but certainly haven't had any complaints!

A lovely chocolate. Really thick shell filled with gorgeous creamy fondant.

April 29, 2022 | Monica Moore

These are the most authentic rose and violet creams I have found, they are exactly like those I had as a child. Exceptional product and definitely for you if you prefer a proper cream rather than a harder fondant.

March 24, 2021 | Amanda Lochrie

Nicely presented, very tasty chocolates. The sweetness of the fondant filling is offset by the slight bitterness of the dark chocolate.

The best violet & rose creams ever!! Have been buying from various places over the past 44 years (for my husband! who inherited the love of them from his mum) now I’ve found Friars they will always be from here / can’t believe it’s taken this long to know about Friars!!

March 16, 2021 | Karen Williams

This is the second box I have purchased for my mam. She said they were the best rose and violet creams she has ever tasted!

March 15, 2021 | Claire Almond

My wife loves them, thats good enough for me !!! The chocolate outer is generous and tastes good, maybe a little more distinction in the two flavours could be an improvement, anyway, keep the good work going, and do not forget to keep the cost reasonable.

The rose and violet creams are my sister's favourite chocolate. She is really enjoying them.Many years ago I stayed in Keswick and went to Friars chocolate shop and so I know the chocolates are really lovely. Thank you indeed.

January 2, 2021 | Vivienne Garnett

Beautiful product, they look and taste wonderful. My only gripe is that they should have been packaged with more protection. These were bought as a gift of course and they arrived by post in a simple box just taped over. No real damage done but the box was slightly dented and it was possible to see the contents through the gap where the lid of the box had been incorrectly folded under rather than slotted down correctly, like a pizza box. And no paper, bubble wrap or other padding was around them. Improve on that and it’s a five star review

December 31, 2020 | P W Prigmore

These were bought for a friend so I haven't sampled them myself. However, she says that they are delicious

We are always pleased with your excellent chocolate. It's a pity we could not collect them from Keswick. Let's hope it's not too long before we can.

Wonderful. One box for me and one as a present. I won't be going back to F & M any more.
Thank you.

December 14, 2020 | Anonymous

Wow - you can really tell these are hand made - the lovely rich dark chocolate is balanced beautifully with the sweet cream filling. Violet and Rose (along with Mint) are probably the oldest flavours we have from the original ingredients made since long ago. Each chocolate is just enough, you aren't left wanting more (until tomorrow!) Sometimes the traditional ones are the best.

Best ever rose &violet creams I’ve ever tasted. Honestly so delicious & flavours are just perfect. I’m over the moon they’re dairy free & I’ll most definitely be ordering more & soon. The violet cream consistency is softer than the rose cream & is more fluid but it doesn’t detract from the amazing flavour. Thickness and taste of the chocolate is also to perfection. Highly highly recommended & a very special gift to give.

These are my husband’s very favourite chocolates of all (and he does like chocolates), so much so that I inadvertently ordered 3 boxes this Christmas! I had hidden the first two away and when I couldn’t find them in my usual ‘hiding ‘place I ordered another one thinking I must NOT have ordered them earlier. He is delighted of course - but I’ll bet they still won’t last long! Thanks for your great service.
