Whether it’s sending a surprise delivery of fresh flowers, or even something out-of-the-box from an online gift delivery service, we all have a few ‘Twix’ up our sleeves when it comes to finding last-minute gifts. But if you’re looking for an easy crowd-pleaser that also won’t break the bank, a box of chocolate is the way to go. Let’s be real, who doesn’t like choccies? Plus, you can pick up boxed chocolates from any ol’ supermarket. Win-win. To help you find the best options on shelves, Canstar Blue compared the best brands around to find the ‘top of the box.’
Canstar Blue surveyed 312 Australians for their feedback on the chocolate box brand(s) they’ve purchased and consumed in the last three months.
Respondents rate their satisfaction with their boxed chocolate brand(s) from zero to ten, where zero is extremely dissatisfied and ten is extremely satisfied. Brand satisfaction was rated by respondents on the following criteria:
The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.
Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.
1. Lindt Lindor
2. Ferrero Rocher
Lindt Lindor boxed chocolates wrapped up a win with five stars for variety & range, texture & consistency and overall satisfaction. Favourites presented five stars for value for money and variety & range, Maltesers rated well for taste, packaging convenience and texture & consistency.
