Leonidas Fresh Belgian Chocolates with a Giveaway

Photobucket

Attention all chocolate lovers!    
Do you want to taste some delicious premium chocolate? 
Just keep reading...

Today we're featuring Leonidas Belgian Chocolates on Moana Saves.  Leonidas is is a world-renowned maker of chocolate. While preparing for this review I read the following on the Leonidas website:


"When a recent survey asked 20,000 Belgians what they thought about different brands, Leonidas was the outright winner in the chocolate category. In fact, 1 in every 3 top quality Belgian chocolates sold comes from Leonidas - and 55% of Belgians say that we are the most highly-rated chocolate maker in the country. Not bad, in the most chocolate-obsessed country in the world."

PhotobucketAnswer me this: What better way is there to end your day than to bring good friends and an abundance of really good chocolate together? When the people over at Leonidas sent me chocolate for review I just had to invite the other Moana Saves bloggers over for a girls' chocolate party. Our chocolate tasting test of choice was a sampling using our 5 senses. 
  • Smell: Does the chocolate have a fruity or spicy smell? Yes, chocolate really does have different scents, especially the fresh rich dark chocolates that I smelled.
  • Sight: The bar should be flawless with luster (higher gloss indicates freshness). When broken, the brake should not collapse in splinters and crumbles. I broke one of the Napolitains for this test and it was definitely a clean brake compared to store bought bars (whose names shall not be mentioned). 
  • Touch: Cocoa butter melts at 94°F; it should melt at body temperature. The higher the quantity of cocoa butter the better the quality of chocolate and the lower the melting temperature. My verdict: I could hardly get these sweets in my mouth quick enough to avoid sticky chocolatey fingers. 
  • Taste: My favorite part! A+ to Leonidas! My favorite in the Napolitain assorted pack was the Feuilletine (milk chocolate with crispy biscuit pieces) and the Nibs (dark chocolate with fragments of cocoa beans). In the general assortment there was such a variety I can't say which was my favorite but the most memorably unique chocolate was the small pink heart pictured above (top right) with it's delicious fruit filling (I think it was cherry?). 
SHOP: Purchase any chocolate of your choice at the Leonidas website. For a limited time Moana Saves readers can receive a $12 discount on the purchase of the Napolitains sampler box by using the code "moanasaves" or clicking THIS LINK that automatically applies the $12 discount.  Just in time for Easter or Mother's Day!
