The chocolate is nicely bitter and dark like I was hoping and it melts in my fingers suggesting it is purer than what I was expecting from such a big company's candies. The combinations that should be chewy are chewy, while those that should be crunchy were crunchy with each bite. My favorite was the Chocolate Whip because it was simple and very chocolaty yet tasted light and airy. I have to be honest, Sisters and Brother, and confess I didn't bother with either the Coconut or the Cherry Cordial so others will have to give their input on that. Over all I was greatly pleased with this selection and I think it's a very good mass produced choice for any gift you might be rushing to buy.
So if you think your father would like a little dark chocolate and he enjoys most of these flavors, this Whitman Sampler might be your salvation at this late date before Father's Day. What he doesn't like, I'm sure your mother will.
