These Godiva dome-shaped chocolates from Costco pack plenty of crunch!
Today I’m reviewing the Costco Godiva Chocolate Domes! These are one of the last holiday items I’ll be reviewing. I haven’t tried them before, so decided I needed to add them to my current chocolate collection.
Other chocolates from Costco for the holiday season include the Costco Godiva Masterpieces Chocolates, Costco Kirkland Signature Macadamia Clusters, Costco Truffettes De France Chocolate Truffles, Costco Merci European Chocolates and the Costco Kirkland Signature Peppermint Bark.
Location in Store
You can find the Godiva Chocolate Domes in the Christmas treat aisle, near all the other chocolates. The item number is 1490904.
The first thing I noticed with both of these chocolates is the texture. They’re very crunchy! They remind me of Ferrero Rocher chocolates in a way and the hazelnut one actually tastes very similar to the basic Ferrero Roche chocolate. There are two flavors, dark chocolate and milk chocolate crispy hazelnut.
They’re actually even more crunchy than Ferrero Rocher due to the solid, crispy cores the Godiva Domes have. The Dark Chocolate Double Chocolate chocolate delivers what it promises – it’s very chocolatey. It tastes like a mix of dark and milk chocolate.
As I mentioned above, the Milk Chocolate Crispy Hazelnut chocolate reminds me of a Ferrero Rocher chocolate with extra crunch, but there are a lot of other chocolates out there with this classic flavor combination. If you’ve had hedgehog chocolate before or even Nutella, you’ll have a pretty good idea of how these chocolates taste.
I think the most unique aspect of these chocolates is the texture. If you’re craving good quality chocolate with lots of crunch and you’re getting tired of buying Ferraro Rocher chocolates, you should definitely give these a try, though they’re not that different. Personally I prefer smooth chocolates, so I don’t think I’d buy them again.
I paid $15.99 Canadian for the 443-gram box of chocolates. Not exactly cheap but also not totally overpriced.
The best before date is almost seven months from the date I purchased the chocolates. Each chocolate comes individually wrapped. I recommend storing them in a cool dry plan.
I like a bit of variety when I buy chocolates, I love the boxes that have 20 different flavors so I wish this big box had more than just two flavors of chocolates. Although, if these were served to guests I doubt anyone could resist trying one!
Definitely not a healthy cookie! One cookie is 140 calories, six grams of fat, 18 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, 10 grams of sugar, three grams of protein and 45 mg of sodium. I’m not loving that the ingredients has sugar as the first ingredient listed and vegetable oil as well.
The Godiva Chocolate Domes contain wheat, sugar, hazelnuts, dairy and egg yolk. They have typical unhealthy ingredients you’d expect to find in a chocolate!
Give it a try!
These aren’t my favorite chocolates that Costco carries for the holiday season, but I still enjoyed them!
If you’ve tried these, what did you think of them?
