Sorry to disagree with other reviewers. Got the sweets 11 days after ordering, not a huge problem but much slower than other items from Amazon. Looked forward to trying one after lunch but both my husband, a choc ginger "connoisseur" (which means he has eaten a few in his day) and I found them very disappointing. The ginger is barely discernible and the choc is of poor quality but there again, I'm a dark chocolate fanatic and have tried far too much in my time. I thought this chocolate was cheap and nasty. Choc gingers are not always easy to find and we usually buy ours from a nearby town. I hoped ordering on-line would save on the usual journey but I certainly wouldn't buy this brand again. They weren't expensive but in a sense will be as they'll be thrown out as inedible.
