Friars Delectably Dark Chocolates - 24 Chocolates

Code: 5060402026126

We have tried to capture the deep rich essence of the cocoa beans by selecting chocolates with 60% to 72% cocoa solids, with the flavour of the chocolate dictating the strength of cocoa used.

An exquisite selection of our high cocoa delectably dark chocolates. Savour our richest, darkest, most decadent collection for the true dark chocolate devotee. Indulge in our Jamaican rum truffle sealed in 72% dark chocolate or our rich cherry truffle with a kirsch liqueur soaked cherry in the centre.

All of this in one box, a perfect gift or sneaky treat for yourself.

These are the second lot I have purchased. The centres are delicious and unique.
The combination of centres mix well together. Lovely dark chocolate and the fillings
are just right in taste and flavour. Not too sweet which I appreciate very much.
I detest sugar as an excessive additive when all you can detect is sweetness.
Friars are not the run-of-the-mill confectioners and produce a range of chocolates which
Are fabulous and scrumptious. Please keep up the good work of producing such great products.
Many Thanks.

Friars Dark Chocolates are about the best I have tasted. The centre's are different., and delicious, I would recommend them to anyone. Thank You.

April 29, 2022 | Doreen Russell

As always, your chocolates are delectable.
In passing, I noticed that although the goods were despatched by you on April 19th., they were not delivered until the 22nd. which appears a little odd.

Very nice chocolates, in fact excellent

December 8, 2021 | John Mason

I don’t particularly like dark chocolate but friars is so smooth and delicious that it makes milk chocolate look foolish. This set has some of my all time favourites in it. The only down side is that the photo had more of my favourites than the actual box. That’s a little misleading. I see now that the image has been updated but that’s happened a little too late for me as my favourite walnut topped vanilla cream was replaced with a hard caramel - a leave-till-last chocolate.
The Cherry Delux / cherry marzipan is Manna from heaven. I’d do anything for a box full or at least a taster pack of them. I’ve gone three stars because friars is the only place where I spend £30 for a box of chocs and I think that in that case it’s important to provide what you said you would. I still love friars for gifts for family and friends but I’m wary of the fact that I may get what’s available instead of what I ordered.

OK chocs but nothing special, sorry. the outer shell is a bit thick. was expecting a more higher end chocolate..

December 3, 2021 | Mike Dewhirst

One box eaten, yum, yum, second box saved for Christmas. Third box will be given as present. Thanks Friars, I love your Chocs.

The best dark chocolate ever

August 18, 2021 | A D Fox

Not as good as they used to be - the coffee one did not taste of coffee at all, just sweet and sickly. Toffee one seems to have appeared which was not a welcome addition and the cherry truffle was not as good as previously, so feel a bit let down.

The most delicious dark chocolate collection ever.
Well presented in the box, and excellent sales and delivery service.
Highly recommend.

These were bought as a gift for my husband, The presentation, variety and taste all excellent.

These were for my husband for Christmas. I can’t eat chocolate so I can’t taste them but he assured me they are delicious - better than other good quality chocolates he had from elsewhere.

Very pleased with the finished article, excellent range of fillings, chocolate looks top quality. These were for a gift, they were received with a massive smile. That says it all.

A regular indulgence of ours. These chocolates have the wonderful thick chocolate shell that Friars are known for but, what makes them so good is they have proper old fashioned centres instead of boring fashionable truffles! Trying to keep these as our Christmas treat

November 28, 2020 | Sandra Read

Full of flavour and tasty.

Delicious chocolates. Shame you have to damage the lovely box to get the sticky label off to open it.
Bought mail order but the packaging isn't really suitable. The chocs had turned over in the post and the outer box had lots of chocolate crumbs inside it.

June 11, 2020 | Anonymous

I bought the chocolates as a birthday present for a friend so have not tried them myself. However every time she has a chocolate she contacts me to say how delicious they are. By far superior than any chocolates she has had in her past. She says the chocolatier must be very skilful and professional. What more can I say but I shall get some for myself soon.

May 21, 2020 | Anonymous

I bought these for my Husband as a gift for Valentine's Day. He is a dark chocolate lover and said they were the best as the flavours were different plus some standard. I would certainly buy again. Thank you.

Absolutely divine, delicious and well made. The perfect gift for my other half who generously shared with me. Great value for something so very good!!!
