Botticelli Chocolatte

Name: Chocolatte
Brand: Botticelli
Place Purchased: London Drugs (Vancouver, BC)
Price: unknown
Size: 1.4 ounces
Calories per ounce: 164
Type: Chocolate

My husband brought this back from Canada for me. I know it was a while ago, but if you picture the candy blogger with piles of candy all over her house and office, well, you’re not far off from the truth. I was a little skittish about it because of my experience with the Botticelli Bites last summer. (I have other thoughts on that, but I’ll post about that separately sometime.)

The bar is milk chocolate sections filled with a buttery cream. The chocolate is creamy and smooth albeit a little too sweet to let the dairy or chocolate flavors really shine. The center is smooth, sweet and has a good flowing caramel texture but not really any flavor that I could figure (caramel, vanilla, chocolate?).

It’s a rather ordinary bar with no oomph. The sections divide quite nicely to make the bar look like boxed chocolates instead of a candy bar, so it definitely has an upscale feel but just doesn’t deliver any sensory satisfaction for me. I feel so bad about this post that I’ll try to do another one later, if only so I can have something more exciting to eat (good or bad).

  1. Since it’s called Chocolatte, maybe the cream was supposed to be coffee flavored?

    It might have been coffee flavored ... if so, it was pretty weak.

    I’m thinking they were using the latte part just to mean “something with milk.”

  4. About 9 years ago I purchased a box of the most luscious, most fantastic candy I have ever eaten. It was in a very attractive metal box. It was Hedgehogs(Truffles) from Botticelli CandyCompany in Canada. I got them at Sam’s Club and have never been able to find them since. Does anyone know if that Company still exists and still makes them. Please let me know a website where they can be purchased if they are still manufactured.

  5. Mary Ann Hodge asked about the Botticelli Candy Company in Canada.  I received a 1 pound tin of Botticelli Hedgehogs for Christmas.  The box had a web site, http://www.botticelli.ca, and a telephone number, 1 888 515 7117.  The chocolates are manufactured by Dynamic Chocolates in Delta, BC.  The postal code is V3M 6R9.

  8. My grandson gave me a box of your turtles for Christmas.  They were very delicious and I ate them all.  However, they had leaked all over the side of the box and it was difficult to get some of them out of their little spaces. 

    I just wanted you to know this in case others complain about their candy.  There is a number on the side of the box - 180913257.

    I would buy this candy again even though it was a bit of trouble to get to eat them.
