Life is like a box of chocolates

My brother spent a long weekend in Dublin and I told him to get me a) as many packets of Galaxy Minstrels as he can carry and b) something I can use for my food blog. I even specified that b) meant an unusual or typically Irish ingredient.
He forgot about the Minstrels altogether and for my blog brought me this:

I suspect he bought it 5 minutes before the gates closed…
But as Forrest Gump said: Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get. Well, I’ll get chocolates with baileys, that much the box tells me.
I tried each variety and they all taste very nice. The Baileys in all of them, however, makes them all taste almost the same. If you like Baileys that’s not a bad thing.
My favourite was the Baileys Coffee Cup.

The various Baileys Domes (white chocolate, dark chocolate and caramel) also taste lovely.

The squares taste just as nice, although I could not really tell the difference between the Signature Square and the dark chocolate square except that the Signature Square has ‘Baileys’ written on it.

The fudge square made a nice change in texture and was less ‘saucy’ and more chewy.

My least favourite was the wrapped dark chocolate heart mint. The caramel and mint interfere with each other rather than complement each other.

Altogether a nice present for someone who loves Baileys. For anybody else it is likely to be too much of the same.
