You guys….YOU GUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUYS, this year I finally broke down and bought myself a box of Fatally Yours Valentine’s Day chocolates from Vegan Treats. I’ve been wanting these for years and years. Every year I tell myself they’re too expensive. Then after a while I think, “Hey, you only live once!” But by then they’re sold out 🙁 But not this year. This year I didn’t even wait to see them advertised on facebook. I looked them up sometime in January and ordered them immediately without thinking twice.
I’ve been kind of obsessed with idea of doing unboxing videos for the blog, so here’s my first! I’ve already made a few others.
I did make a mistake in the video – the caramel oozed out of the big skull and onto the little heart, it’s not coming from the little heart. I’m sure you really care.
It is so lovely a thing, I don’t even regret the hefty price tag. The chocolates are handmade, gorgeous, and delicious! And vegan!!!! And made in limited quantities, so what can you expect? Well, you can expect high quality and fine details, and everything a girl could ever want in a super morbid box of Valentine’s Day chocolates.
The box itself is something I want to keep forever and forever, plus there’s a Vegan Treats postcard, a decal, and two buttons.
I’ve always been partial to skulls, maybe that’s why I like being an Orthodox girl so much 🙂 I don’t know what is wrong with me, but one year when a friend was really hating Valentine’s Day, I made him a card to commemorate the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre instead. It was an awful card, but it was also pretty cool…and Valentine’s Day has never been the same for me. And then I found this!!! Included are:
Two White Chocolate Mummies in a Chocolate Peanut Butter Sarcophagus, Two White Chocolate Humerus Bones
One Hazelnut Praline Crunch in an Abysmally Dark Chocolate Skull (the little guy), One Caramel Cookie Stix Skull (the big guy) – that’s basically a vegan Twix bar in the shape of a skull!!!! And one Black Coffee Blues Caramel Cup Rose Heart
Two Anatomically Correct Hearts filled with Marshmallow Chunk Speculoos Filling
Two Magic in the Stars Constellation Chocolate Mousse Soufflés, Two Passionless Fruit and Madagascar Vanilla Bean filled Swiss Chocolates with White Chocolate X
Two Paint Spatter Fluted Chocolates with “Black as Your Heart” Raspberry Filling, and One Moon & Stars Blood Red Velvet
Two White Chocolate Skeletal Hands
One Giant Chocolate Planchette – it’s not mentioned in the booklet, but when I unwrapped it I could smell peanut butter, and it does appear to be filled. Oh, what booklet, you ask?
This very pretty little booklet describing each of the chocolates. But the best way to find out how what the chocolates taste like…
Is to take a bite!
I ate a few pieces this morning for breakfast, everything has been wonderful so far. I’m saving the Twix skull for last, I just know it will be amazing.
Have you tried the Fatally Yours collection? What’s your favorite Valentine’s Day treat?
