Elmer's Quality Chocolate Love Birds

I passed up this candy once during the 50% off Valentine's Day candy sale at Walgreen's. But, when I went back and they were in the 70% off area, I couldn't resist buying them. I do realize it is almost 10 days after Valentine's Day, so I'll do two reviews today instead of one.

I have to admit I'm not a serious candy know-it-all and had never heard of Elmer's Quality Chocolate. I wasn't quite sure what I was getting when buying these...but at 70% off, who cares? However, from a little research on the web, I found that Elmer's has a very nice website and even a page that shows what chocolate was inside this heart.

In the picture below you can see the 3 different chocolates in this heart:

The rectangle with light strips was a VERY PLEASANT and surprising Orange Cream. Elmer's describes it as, "Sumptuous orange crème center enrobed by luxurious dark chocolate". I agree with that description because this one was fantastic. We thought it tasted like a tangy orange sherbet. YUM!

The round chocolate was a milk chocolate caramel. This is a soft caramel and it had a maple sort of buttery flavor to it. The milk chocolate had a lot of sugar because it gave a nice burn in the throat. It was very sweet. Elmer's describes it as, "Soft, buttery caramel coated by a rich milk chocolate shell". Not a bad caramel, but I'm not a fan of soft or runny caramel.

The last chocolate was a rectangle milk chocolate fudge. I thought this one reminded me of German Chocolate Cake for some reason. It seemed very cocoa-y in flavor but was definitely a fudge texture. Elmer's describes it as, "Rich chocolate fudge drenched in creamy milk chocolate".

Overall, this was a decent box of chocolate that I would have paid full price for had I know about Elmer's, the 150 year old candy company from Louisiana. And honestly, the graphic on the front of the box is so good, I could have bought it just for that.
