#3 The Strawberry centred Chocolate in the box of Quality Street
OK, I’m not too sure how much I can write about this one. I love Quality Street chocolates or any chocolate like it (except for the hard toffee ones, those always get left for last!). I know there is a HUGE choice, including fudge (If you have never had fudge or don’t like it, I feel kinda sorry for you 🙂 but only a little as that means more YUMMY fudge for those of us who can’t get enough of it!) but my personal favourite has to be the strawberry.
I love anything strawberry, including lipice – but I can only find cherry which is not quite the same. If we do get some Quality Street chocolates (which normally happens around Christmas – does anyone know why that is?!) I always take out the strawberry ones and hide them. (I’m not very good at sharing things like that 🙂 ) Then eat them slowly and sneakily…
With the strawberry centred chocolate, it’s all about the centre, of course. The soft, melt-in-your-mouth icing type stuff (I don’t know if that’s what it really is and I don’t really care :D), sickly sweet with only a hint of strawberry and right in the middle the sticky syrupy strawberry liquid whose flavour is so strong, it smacks you right between the eyes.
I do love all chocolate and could probably eat an entire box of the stuff without pause within an hour! But the strawberry Quality Street ones are different. You don’t gobble those down. Rather you have to sample and savour them like you would a fine wine, or something you have never tried before. In the time it would take me to eat that aforementioned box of chocolates, I could relish one strawberry-filled scrummy Quality Street chocolate!
To all the chocolate lovers out there, have a very chocolatey day 🙂
