Swiss Delice Prestige Chocolates Review

Last week on the blog I reviewed the Costco Matilde Vicenzi Traditional Italian Cookies, Costco Kirkland Signature Red Velvet Cheesecake, Costco Kirkland Signature Luxury Belgian Chocolates, Costco Kirkland Signature Nanaimo Bars and the Costco Kirkland Signature European Cookies.

I also posted a Youtube Video showing my Christmas 2022 Costco Haul!

Today I’m reviewing the Swiss Delice Prestige Chocolates that are available for Christmas from Costco! I’ve been looking for a decent box of chocolates to treat myself this holiday season and decided to give these ones a try.

The box contains 51 chocolates and costs $11.99 Canadian at Costco which is actually really reasonable for these chocolates from Switzerland.

The box comes wrapped in plastic. The best-before date listed on the chocolates is eight months from the date I purchased them and they should be stored in a cool and dry place.

Four chocolates contain 220 calories, 14 grams of fat, 21 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, 19 grams of sugar, two grams of protein and 20 milligrams of sodium. The first ingredient listed is sugar which isn’t surprising. These aren’t healthy and have zero nutritional benefits but they are quite tasty!

I actually tried all 12 flavours of chocolates in the box and I’m pleasantly surprised by how much I like these chocolates. I assumed they would taste pretty low quality and not be great. The Capri chocolate with toasted hazelnut and a bit of crunchiness was delicious. I also loved the Arabia with an enjoyable strong coffee flavor. The only chocolate I didn’t love in the box was the Circolo because I found it too sweet but I found the rest pretty tasty. I wouldn’t mind receiving a box of these and actually wouldn’t feel bad about gifting a box to someone else!

Cost: 9/10

Convenience: 10/10

Nutrition: 0/10

Taste: 8/10

  1. These are just meh. As others have pointed out in previous posts. Natalie should stick with only reviewing savoury. Please let someone else review candy and baked goods.

  2. Every country in the world has their “inferior” brand of chocolates. The country of origin is only relevant when it comes to brand name, reputable, high quality chocolates.

    Even Toblerone that’s made in Switzerland (now a US company) for North American markets tastes a little different when purchased in the EU. The almonds are darker than the ones which are sold for North America.

    As another example. I found Hawaiian macadamia nuts for locals in Hawaii taste better than the exported versions. I never would’ve thought this would be the case. I thought exported products would be higher quality as they would sell for a higher price. I was wrong.

    Additionally, some exported chocolate to Canada and USA don’t have an expiration date on the packaging. In contrast, the “same” chocolates have an expiration date in the EU.

    Finally, we’ve had some exported Pomegranates from Israel sold at Costco which were awful. They had very red seeds (mostly shell and skin) and they weren’t ripe but they looked like they were. In Israel, the supplier would be chastised for selling such a product.

    I’m not saying these chocolates are inferior. Rather, don’t be fooled by Swiss or Belgian made chocolates. I’ve had some rather cheap tasting Guylian (clone) Belgian made Sea Shell chocolates which clearly used cheap ingredients and tasted that way.
