If you are in London and want to try some lovely chocolate then you can do so much better than Thorntons. I don't understand why anyone would come to this chain store with it's mass produced sweets when you can go to any number of independent chocolate shops which sell handmade, freshly created confectionary in all kinds of creative flavours. Spend a little bit extra and you'll get what you pay for!

Whenever I am in London I come here to get a box of Thorntons Continental chocolates and small gifts for my wife and children to enjoy when I go back home. It has become a bit of a tradition.

I find that the service is good, the staff always ask me if I found everything I was looking for, and I've even been known to get samples to try. It's a very good store which I enjoy coming to, almost as much as I enjoy eating the chocolates!

If you want something a bit fancier than your average bar of Dairy Milk, but don't want to pay through your nose for something fancy and posh from one of London's expensive chocolatiers, then Thorntons is a good option. They have lots of choice of chocolates and the boxes of truffles always go down well at dinner parties and for housewarming gifts.

My personal favourite is the fudge and toffee, and this store has a very good selection. Thorntons toffee is some of the best I've tasted - try the liquorice flavour, it's delicious!

OK, let's get something straight - if you want really amazing chocolate and sweets then try Selfridges Food Hall or somewhere like Prestat. However, if you want affordable but yummy chocolate which isn't going to break the bank then Thorntons has its place.

I usually shop here for things like stocking fillers, back up presents or boxes of chocolates to bust out when you have unexpected house guests. The personalised chocolates are also ideal for young family members or friend's children who love seeing their name on their sweets!

I was told by a British friend that Thorntons is the UK's most famous chocolate shop, so I thought I should pay it a visit and see what all the fuss is about. Frankly, I am still wondering what I am missing! There's nothing special about this shop which is full of boxes of chocolates which all taste the same, and personalised hollow chocolate animals. The shop itself is totally uninspiring and I wasn't once offered a sample chocolate. This wasn't the kind of boutique chocolatier I was expecting and I felt completely underwhelmed.
