If you were making a list of holiday-themed alcoholic beverages, Baileys and hot chocolate or coffee has to be on there right after classic egg nog. These Turin Baileys Original Irish Cream Chocolates pack the flavor of the liqueur into a chocolate. That seems like an obviously good idea, but is it executed well?
Other boozy chocolates from Costco are the Kirkland Signature Liquor Collection Belgian Chocolates and the Anthon Berg Liquor-Filled Dark Chocolates.
If you like your chocolate sans alcohol my favorites from Costco are the Kirkland Signature Macadamia Clusters, Lindt Lindor Assorted Chocolates, Utah Truffles, Hawaiian Sun Chocolate Covered Macadamia Nuts and the Truffettes De France Chocolate Truffles.
Location in Store
The Baileys chocolates are only available at Christmas and they can be found in the seasonal Christmas aisle at Costco. The item number is 394866.
If you love Baileys Irish cream liquor and milk chocolate, you’re sure to love these. They’re basically milk chocolates filled with sweet Baileys Irish cream that’s a consistency similar to caramel.
The milk chocolate is delicious and the Irish cream filling tastes exactly like the Irish cream liquor. The chocolates are actually pretty boozy tasting. This booziness can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your taste preference.
I don’t love chocolate and liquor combined and I find the Irish cream kind of overpowers the chocolates. These go deliciously with coffee or are great for an after-dinner treat.
The cost of these has gone up, I paid $13.69 Canadian for the 600-gram container in 2020 and $15.99 Canadian for the same-size container in 2023.
Each chocolate is individually wrapped which I like because they’re easy to share with others then. These are great for adults to enjoy around Christmas but not for kids. The best-before date is about 6 months from the date I purchased these.
They’re a great gift for someone who loves Baileys or just to offer guests as an after-dinner or mid-morning coffee treat!
Four chocolates contain 180 calories, 11 grams of fat, 35 mg of sodium, 20 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, 16 grams of sugar and two grams of protein.
I can’t see myself eating four of these in one sitting, one or two is enough to satisfy my sweet-tooth!
There are a ton of unhealthy ingredients in these, lots of sugar, artificial flavor, alcohol and palm shortening to name a few. I would never expect a chocolate like this to be at all healthy or of any nutritional value.
The Baileys chocolates contain milk and soy and may contain almonds, pecans, hazelnuts, wheat and sulphites.
Give it a try!
They don’t exactly taste like premium, high quality, chocolatier status chocolates but they taste like a chocolate filled with Baileys liquor. My mom who enjoys Irish cream loves these.
