Ornament Review: Seasons Treatings #10 - Chocolate - 2018 Hallmark Release

Stars: 5 out of 5
Pros: Chocolate!
Cons: The chocolate isn’t real
The Bottom Line:
Chocolate lover?
Ornament will make you crave
Chocolate you love

Prepare for Chocolate Overload!

If there is one dessert universally loved, it is chocolate.  Oh, I know, there are people who don’t love it, but it seems if you put chocolate in anything, it will be the first dessert gone from a party.  And we are celebrating chocolate with this year’s entry in the Season’s Treatings series.

We’ve got a platter of delicious looking chocolate treats.  There’s a chocolate Santa in his decorative foil.  There’s a chocolate cake with a dab of whipped cream on top.  We’ve got some peppermint brownies, or at least brownies with candy canes on top.  There are chocolate chip cookies, and there are a couple of chocolate cupcakes.  All of these goodies are on a white platter with a green border.

I judge how successful each entry in this series is based on who much they make me drool.  This one is a winner.  I look at it, and all I can think about is how sinfully delicious each piece on the plate must be.  I don’t see how anyone who loves chocolate could be disappointed by this piece.  The only flaw is the cupcakes, which are so small they look more like the gold foil than a true cupcake.

Since this is a plate, it has a flat base, so you could set it out to be displayed.  This piece is a little more three dimensional than pieces in the series usually are, so setting it out might be an option if it would fit in with your display plans.

The greater three dimensional nature of this piece is also why it is a rare ornament in the series that hangs almost straight.  There is just the slightest tilt to the right, and it is a rare flaw in the piece, but you can disguise it with some tree branches.

If you are looking for a series marker, you’ll find it on the bottom of the platter.  This series has hit double digits with this piece and is still going strong.  In fact, based on how quickly this entry has sold out around me, I think this will prove to be one of the more popular ornaments in the series.

So if you are a chocolate fan, pick up this ode to chocolate today.  You’ll be sure to enjoy it for years to come.

Drool over the rest of the Seasons Treatings series.

Original Price: $12.99
