Costco usually carries a couple of giftable chocolate options around the holidays. These Galerie Au Chocolate Assorted Chocolates are one of those options this year. You get nine triangular boxes in one big triangular package, which is definitely eye-catching. Are these little boxes of chocolates the perfect small gifts, or should you find something else to give to the important people in your life?
Costco carries a lot of different chocolates during the holiday season, like the Anthon Berg Liquor-Filled Chocolates, Utah Truffles, Hawaiian Sun Chocolate Covered Macadamia Nuts, Gudrun Fine Belgian Chocolates, Kirkland Signature Belgian Luxury Chocolates, Lindt Lindor Assorted Chocolates, Kirkland Signature Macadamia Clusters and the Truffettes De France Chocolate Truffles.
Location in Store
The Galerie Au Chocolate Assorted Chocolates are located in the Christmas seasonal aisle at Costco, the item number is 1740312.
Each box comes with three different kinds of chocolate in the shape of a Christmas tree. There’s dark chocolate, white chocolate and milk chocolate.
The dark chocolate isn’t too bitter and doesn’t have the flavor of true dark chocolate. It’s sweeter than most dark chocolate but not overly sweet.
The white chocolate tastes a bit cheap to me. It has a bit of a waxy texture that lingers in your mouth.
The milk chocolate tastes similar to the chocolates you’d get in an advent calendar. Not like a high-quality milk chocolate.
Overall these are not the greatest quality chocolates and I wouldn’t buy them again. They’re not bad but if you’re looking for a luxury, higher-quality chocolate to gift these aren’t it.
The cost of the Galerie Au Chocolate Assorted Chocolates is $24.99 Canadian. There are nine mini boxes of chocolates inside the larger box. Each small box weighs 80 grams and contains 8 chocolates. That’s a total of 72 chocolates.
There are three dark chocolates, three milk chocolate and three white chocolate in each box. All the chocolates are shaped like a Christmas tree and are individually wrappped so you can easily share these.
These are great for gifting to daycare staff, teachers, garbage truck drivers, mail people, etc. They’re nut-free which is a bonus, The best-before date listed on the chocolates is about six months from when I purchased them and they’re made in Canada.
One box contains 440 calories, 28 grams of fat, 45 grams of carbohydrates, three grams of fibre, 40 grams of sugar, five grams of protein and 45 milligrams of sodium. I wouldn’t eat an entire box in one sitting though, one or two is enough for me at a time.
The chocolates are Belgian chocolate and the ingredients list is pretty typical for plain chocolates like this. They contain milk and soy and may contain almonds, pecans, pistachios and hazelnuts.
Give it a try!
These aren’t amazing chocolates or anything special but they’re tasty enough and a convenient gift idea.
