These chocolates are really nothing that original under the wrapper. That's not to say that I wouldn't recommend them, or that they're not tasty. In fact the chocolate is very smooth and the size is pretty much the perfect bite. The disappointment comes from a common problem I find with foil wrapped chocolate. Inside the foil there is no chocolate character, just a lifeless, paddle looking, finger of chocolate.

Outside you get some of the most creative foil characters I've ever seen in Christmas chocolates. The snow men are in fact snow women, the soldiers are cute, and there's this strange blond character wearing a red with yellow stars robe. It's a cast of characters that baffled and entertained me.

I just can't get over the fact that they don't even bother to shape the chocolate in some kind of entertaining manner I've seen some really detailed chocolate molds in my life, and I think it would improve the novelty factor of this treat greatly. Even better is if the characters changed when you unwrapped them. Anybody interested in marketing an X rated Christmas chocolate might want to look into this.
