It was Plato or possibly Forrest Gump who observed that life is like a box of chocolates - you don't know what you're going to get. But in this case, you do: the best boxed chocolates bar none. Inside these colourful, ribbon-tied cartons you'll discover bright-red spheres filled with raspberry and rose, chequered cinnamon and sesame pralines, pastel pink pyramids, and salted-caramel cubes with splashes of gold. Dig in without fear - we've done the testing for you.
