My daughter is crazy about Ferrero Rocher, so I often buy her a package for special occasions as a part of a gift basket. I know that many people consider this chocolate candy heavenly. As for me, I just rate it okay. It's a little too lacking in substance for me. It's so light, that you almost feel like you don't get enough true chocolate taste. It's a bit like trying to enjoy cotton candy. You take a bite, but it just disintegrates.
It has a creamy chocolate filling, surrounded by a whole hazelnut, and a crispy wafer with chopped hazelnuts and milk chocolate. The candy is wrapped in gold foil, and the pack I got for my daughter also has a crinkle candy paper like you would find in boxed chocolates. It definitely is an upscale chocolate candy look.
A lot of people think it's terrific, but it just doesn't satisfy my chocolate craving, and I LOVE chocolate. I just need something that I can really sink my teeth into, and enjoy the flavor. With these, I feel like I barely taste them, and then they're gone. I know that many of you will disagree. It all comes down to personal preference.
The candies make a pretty presentation in a gift basket. They look so fancy and elegant. Ferrero is an Italian company that makes various hazelnut and other candies.
