Haigh’s Chocolates

Haigh’s Chocolates

A long time favourite of Virginia’s and now also a favourite of mine, we thought Haigh’s could have its own page.  Recently Virginia got a little booklet that listed all the chocolates in the Haigh’s Loose Chocolates range with a little picture of them.  We thought it might be a fun idea to, over time, try one of all of them and cross them off in the booklet starting July 2017.  Then we thought why not create this page.  One further reason to do this is that we have a couple of favourites at Haigh’s and usually get one of them when visiting.  Not too long ago when Virginia was in one of the stores a guy came in and ordered 12 dark raspberry caramel’s.  Virginia remarked that they must be good and he said that they were the best.  She bought a couple and we tried them and they are now in our favourites list.  They probably wouldn’t have been one that we would have tried otherwise though and that is the second reason we thought we should try one of all of them.

We are rating the chocolates out of 3 with 1 being our absolute favourites,  2 being ones we’d potentially have again and 3 being ones that aren’t really to our tastes (but all Haigh’s chocolates are awesome).

So we’ve started to have a couple of chocolates where our tastes differ.  First off it was only 1 point different with the Dark Turkish Delight and the Yalumba Antique Tawny Fig Liqueur. Then I gave the Dark Champagne Truffle a 1 and Virginia gave it a 3.  Just to reiterate though that 3 doesn’t mean we don’t like it just that it isn’t to our taste or we’d prefer something else.  All Haigh’s is awesome 🙂

    1. Remember….number 3 just means “not to our tastes”. It doesn’t mean they aren’t still fantastic!

  1. They all look so good. This is becoming a very mouthwatering blog. Off to the fridge to find a chocolate. Sadly it won’t be a Haig’s. Think I might need to revisit the milk rum and raisin fudge to see why it got a three.
