Brookside Chocolate Reviews
Brookside Chocolates have been around for a number of years but the product is currently engaged in an advertising campaign extolling the virtues of its chocolate-covered fruit snacks.
Although there are a number of flavors offered, the overall product line has a similar presentation. The bags have similar designs, and the individual snacks are similarly manufactured.
It may be worth mentioning that snacks such as “blueberry” or “acai” do not actually contain those berries in the center, but rather flavored fruit blends. There is also a somewhat high amount of sugar, which may be of some concern for those who are seeking out fruit snacks.
For those who aren’t concerned with the sugar content, Brookside Chocolates do not disappoint. Virtually every offering has amassed high ratings online, typically in the 4.5-star range.
The texture is perhaps surprising to those who may be expecting a berry wrapped in chocolate. The fruit blend is more akin to a gummy worm.
One product which closely resembles Brookside Chocolates is Kirland Dark Chocolate Super Fruits. These are sold in similar bags which contain chocolate covered fruit centers.
Brookside Chocolates are delicious gummy-like fruit flavored pieces wrapped in rather sugary dark chocolate. They are widely available and can be sampled in small sizes before investing in larger quantities.
