As we mentioned in a previous review of Marich, Marich Premium Chocolates is a company we found in Hollister, California; however, we wouldn’t be doing a review of a company unless you were able to purchase their products online. Marich has a huge collection of chocolate, chocolate fruits, chocolate nuts, caramels and toffee, as well as jelly beans and other sweets. We are going to break up our review of Marich into two separate reviews, allowing us to give you a more in-depth look at a few of the products they offer. This review will focus on their chocolate almonds, chocolate caramel, chocolate covered strawberries and blueberries. To learn more about Marich, be sure and check out their web-site for more information on their line of products.
The first chocolate covered goodie we tried out was their Chocolate Toffee Caramel, and as you can see from the picture below, it actually looks less sinful and heavy than you would imagine. The tiny ball of caramel is gently wrapped in a layer of milk chocolate, making this chocolate toffee caramel a bit of a sweet treat. The texture, however, is a bit chewy, but very inviting and addictive. Our testers loved the combination of caramel and chocolate, which is probably why we would recommend this to our toffee caramel lovers out there. Next, we tried our hand at their Chocolate Strawberries, which were an absolute crowd pleaser. What we loved most about this snack was how large the strawberries were, and the fact that they still tasted like fresh strawberries—which can sometimes be difficult when you purchase a lesser chocolate. Marich decided to use dark chocolate as the coating, a fantastic idea by the way, and lead our tasters to easily recommend this for anyone just looking for an awesome chocolate and strawberry combination. Sticking with that classical trend, we continued our review with their Milk Chocolate Almonds. Obviously you can’t go wrong with milk chocolate covered almonds, so we’ll keep this one short and just say that it’s another success in Marich’s line of gourmet chocolate goodies. Lastly, we tried out one of the more interesting products in their line, but our testers thought that their Chocolate Blueberries might’ve been the best thing they tried out all day. It isn’t too often that chocolate companies will offer you something as inventive as a milk chocolate covered blueberry, but after demolishing this whole bag, our judges think other companies should do it more often. The natural and sweet flavor that comes from the blueberries goes perfect with the milk chocolate coating, and is just another reason why you should try practically anything that Marich has to offer. If you think we’re wrong about anything in this review, let us know in the comments section below. Overall (4.5 out of 5).
The pros are that they have a huge line of chocolate goodness to choose from, everything taste like it should—and better, the texture of all the chocolates we tried out were good and you can order everything from their online store.
The cons are that you have to wait a couple of agonizing days for your gourmet chocolate to arrive, and it’s still chocolate after all.
