I can’t resist chocolate hedgehogs during the Christmas season. When I was looking through the Costco Christmas aisle I noticed the CHOCXO Mini Hedgehogs and I had to pick them up to review and also enjoy!

Other chocolates I love from Costco are the Costco Kirkland Signature Macadamia Nut Clusters, Other chocolates I love from Costco are the Costco Toblerone, Costco Merci Chocolates, Costco Sanders Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels and the Costco Truffettes De France Chocolate Truffles.

Delicious chocolate hedgehogs that are the perfect bite-size!

Taste

These aren’t quite as good as the ones you get at Purdys Chocolatier but they’re still really delicious. They just taste like a cheaper version and not as premium quality as the ones from the chocolatier, still really good through.

There’s a sweet, delicious milk chocolate on the outside of the hedgehogs and a thick, solid, creamy hazelnut praline on the inside of the chocolate.

They’re kind of similar to seashell chocolates but better in my opinion! I love having these with a cup of coffee or tea and just letting them melt in my mouth.

Cost

I paid $19.99 Canadian for the CHOCXO Mini Hedgehogs that includes four boxes with 20 pieces each! That’s 80 hedgehogs for $19.99. Definitely a really good price. I kept a box for myself and can give some to my family.

Convenience

These come in a package of four boxes, each box is individually sealed. The best before date is about nine months from the date I purchased the chocolates. Because they come in a pack of four boxes these make a wonderful gift to give family or friends.

The hedgehogs are certified gluten-free.

Unfortunately, when you remove the plastic wrap the top is a flap top so the chocolates don’t have a full sealed top once you open them. The mini size is perfect, not too big and not too small, just the right size for a chocolate.

Calories

We already know these aren’t a healthy superfood but these are SO good for my soul. Four pieces is 220 calories, 15 grams of fat, 30 mg of sodium, 20 grams of carbohydrates, 18 grams of sugar and three grams of protein. I feel satisfied with just one.
