Costco Anthon Berg Liquor-Filled Dark Chocolates Review

Costco is carrying these liquor-filled chocolates for the Christmas and holiday season!

Today I’m reviewing the Costco Anthon Berg Selection of Liquor-Filled Dark Chocolates. These are only available at Costco for a short time during the holiday season.

Last year I reviewed the Costco Baileys Original Irish Cream Chocolates. My favorite chocolates to buy from Costco for Christmas are the Lindt Lindor Chocolates.

Location in Store

You can find these liquor-filled chocolates in the aisle with all the Christmas chocolates and cookies. The item number is 293701.

Taste

The chocolates seem to be full of the actual liquor. You can taste the alcohol and feel it in your mouth. The stems of the bottles are solid dark chocolate, but the bodies are hollow and contain a good amount of liquor. The chocolate seems to be the same for all of the different liquors, but it’s hard to determine how good the chocolate is as the alcohol flavor is strong.

Jim Bean – Chocolate is pretty good. Smooth. You can definitely taste the Jim Bean. I’m not a bourbon drinker, so I didn’t like it, but I can see how people who like bourbon would. 
Galliano – I liked this one. The hint of vanilla goes well with the chocolate. 
Sobieski – Strong vodka flavor. Personally chocolate and vodka seem like an odd pairing to me.

The Famous Grouse – Strong whisky flavor. Similar to the Jim Bean one. 
Cointreau – Not as strong an orange flavor as I was hoping for, but still a good combination.
Canadian Club – Strong whisky flavor. Similar to the Jim Bean and Famous Grouse chocolates.
Remy Martin – Strong cognac flavor. I’m personally not a cognac fan, but it seemed to pair well with the chocolate.
Drambuie – Spicy with a strong herbal flavor. I’d never had Drambuie before, but I’m guessing that’s what it tastes like! It seemed to go fairly well with the chocolate.

The Conitreau and the Galliano were my personal favorites as I felt the flavor of the liquor complemented the chocolate well.

I think all of the combinations except for the vodka make sense and I can see how people who like the liquors would love the chocolates. Everything seems to be very good quality, from the packaging to the chocolate to the liquors themselves.

Cost

I paid $22.99 Canadian for the box of 64 liquor-filled chocolates. The box comes with eight of each of the eight flavors of chocolates. The back of the package says the assortment may vary, but this seems hard to believe given how nicely packaged they are. I would be surprised if other boxes contained different numbers of the different kinds.

Convenience

Each liquor-filled chocolate is individually packaged and they come neatly arranged in the convenient box.

Instructions for eating the chocolates.

The best before date is a year from the date we purchased them, I recommend storing them in a cool. dry, place so they don’t melt.

Two chocolates contains 140 calories, seven grams of fat, 17 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, 16 grams of sugar, less than one gram of protein and zero milligrams of sodium. That’s pretty much the amount of calories, fat and sugar I’d expect to see in two chocolates.

Overall

Give it a try!

People’s opinions on these will vary mostly based on whether they like boozy desserts and these specific liquors. For the right person, I could see these being a 9 or a 10 for taste.

Are these something you would buy for the holiday season? Why or why not?

  1. I used to get these every year at Costco Mississauga.
    But then moved to Montreal. Although we have Costco s here, not verything is the same! I have been hunting all over Costco for these here but nothing…am so disappointed.

  2. I received this for a gift 4 days ago and I’m down to under 10 chocolates left. Overall I found the chocolate and the alcohol combinations to be very good in terms of balance. Keep in mind I’m not an everyday consumer of liqueur or any alcohol for that matter daily,but I certainly enjoy a hearty drink or a strong imported beer for sure. For the price I might even buy a couple for gifts or stocking stuffers. The grade I would give this is a solid 8.5 and I would recommend it for a gift.

    • Only place I have seen them is Amazon and they are way more expensive. Disappointed that I can’t find these at any of the 3 Costco’s I go to.
