I bought this as Christmas gift for someone who really like Reeses products. I thought the box, although clearly brown in the picture would be a decent way to present the sweets.
Basically you are paying for £9 for 5 chocolate bars in a brown box. The box is for packaging only, its not for presentation, and could never be used as such as mine had the address and postage labels stuck directly to it. I also had to rip the box to get the sellotape off to check the contents.
Our local sweet shop has each of these products for either £0.79 or £0.99 depending on the product. So there is £5 worth of sweets here maximum (retail price, trade of course would be lower still). Additionally, the postage charge was £2.29, the actual postage cost on the label was £1.40.
I feel cheated as I've paid £11.28 for a rubbish box and sweets that would have cost £5 locally. Very tempted to return the product and ask for a refund, but its a Christmas present, I'll see if I can find something better locally before I decide. I would not use this supplier again on principle.
