Never noticed the postage...cos I'm not allowed to buy them

Will add to post thanks!

Also just be on moneysavingexpert looking fir a free delivery code ..no joy....this was on sale yesterday for £10. They put the price back up yesterday afternoon. (so unfair) So I'm not buying on the priniciple that it was cheaper yesterday and I will only get fat if I eat all that chocolate. lol

It's a good deal, but beware:
Thorntons is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get...

mmmmm choccy shame the sell by date is feb 11 - even i dont think i cud eat 2kgms of their choccy in the time frame but hot hot hot all the same

Was posted yesterday when it was £10 and then expired when it went to £15.
There was a warning in that post that some may have Best Before date of end of Feb at the earliest if you were thinking of hanging onto them for a certain occasion etc.

Will it be like the Xmas hampers people were buying before Xmas, that were nothing like the description and had loads of toffees in.

You can eat chocolate way past the best before date.At least 3-6 months.Tempted now?

I've still got my last thorntons hamper to work through lol

Geddon, stuff your faces!

Might find not everything is short dated, but those made with cream really probably need to be swallowed down pretty quick, I'm sure four of us will manage no problem, it won't all be toffee. Last years one was a good mix something for everyone and plenty for those of us who eat anything ( well I don't really like Turkish delight)
Ordered yesterday but after the price had gone up

Dont forget topcashback and quidco

I think Thornton's chocolates are fairly average these days. I remember when they first became popular they were so much nicer than a normal box of chocs, but now, well, they are just chocolates, nothing special.

I went into Hotel Chocolat the other day and they were giving out samples. Now that is superb chocolate. Absolutely gorgeous. But it's not cheap :-(

This is a good price though so I am voting hot. Thanks OP.

It would take my wife and myself around 4 years (not a typo) to eat our way through this lot and so a sell by date of Feb 2011 makes it an absolute No-No for us.

Voted hot though as it seems like a real bargain if you happen to have shares in Weight Watchers and your Dentist.

BLOOOMIN MARVELOUS

they were pretty cheap the other day £26 boxes for £8.......i ordered loads, then had a reality check as we have loads of chocs and we rarely eat them

Ordered for the missus to distribute however she sees fit! HOT HOT!!

It seems a bit suspicious that the best before date is just before Valentine's Day. My (perhaps cynical) guess is that they're dated that way so that people won't be able to buy them cheap now and give them as Valentine's gifts -- unless they don't mind looking like cheapskates who give out of date chocolates as a gift.

oh god what have I done! 2 kilos of Chocolate xD

I think that's February 2011 rather than the 11th February

No - 2 kilos of chocolate and toffee. Or - more likely - toffee and chocolate.

Anyone who had dealings with Thorntons just before Christmas isn't going to trust them with this one, given that the toffee/chocolate mix is left entirely to them.

I stand corrected ^^

Dont care what the expiry is my hubby will be getting thorn tons choccies for valentines day, and I bet he won't even think to look at the date hehee
Actually 2kg won't turn out to be that much after a birthday and valenties day removed, then two starving kids and chocolate fiend husband and me, just hurry up and get them here
Hotel chocolate is good but not significantly better and as for the prices even reduced they make your eyes water

Good point, I didn't look at the Thornton's site as I'm trying to resist ordering. I stand corrected and won't be so cynical in future.

These are the Christmas chocs, flavours like mulled wine -

Is this still available as I can't seem to find it on the website?

Ohhh, why oh why did you post this?! Tempted to vote cold on behalf of my hips :P great deal!

Hot chocolate deal. Too much still in the house to even think about ordering.

Great, thats Valentines pressie now sorted

Agree with Bigsky, Thorntons is just average nowadays. Hotel Chocolat sells quality chocolate but it is more expensive - worth it in my opinion.

I'd go further than that.

Thorntons is now a very boring brand, with a boring range of mediocre chocolates. The quality of the chocolate is no better than any of the cheaper brands, and the Continental chocolates are little better than Cadburys Roses - which isn't saying much.

Hotel Chocolat are rather better, but at a price - time for a trip to Bruges. (_;)

sod it ...order it now
xxxx

Mse people are stating you get 5 boxes and they said at.£10 it was ok vfm.

Got mine today, I'm quite happy with the mix the dates are April and June so I'm quite happy

Got mine today - chocs only. Bearing in mind these were half price in many supermarkets before Christmas I feel this wasn't anywhere near as hot as the 368 degrees it reached - won't bother next time.

got my order today which is as follows ...............
1 x SPECIAL TOFFEE (525GMS - 1LB 2.5 OZ) - Best beofre 28th feb
2 x CHRISTMAS GOODIES (40G bags of each - 1 x choccy buttons, 1 x chocolate buttons, 1 x choccy raisins, 1 x vanilla fudge) and some christmas stickers - best beofre end feb 11
1 x WHITE CHOCOLATE SNOWMAN 150gms - best before 30th june 2011
2 x MILK CHOCOLATE SELECTION BOX (blue box) 225 gms - best beofre 31st march 2011
1 x CHOCOLATE SELECTION BOX (big red box) 456gms - best before 31st march

SO in all not a bad mix but i am sure u could pick them up for about the same in their shops now in the sale so overall i am pleased with what i have as i like them all
xxxxxxxxxxxxx
