Odd review this ... I purchases three boxes of Barr's Chocolates as a business gift. So, I've never tasted the product.
Why five stars? Because the company's service was exceptional. When I called for information about the confections, I spoke to a chocolate-maker. How cool is that?
I placed my online order using information he provided. I didn't see any mechanism provided to attach a gift card. Ah, well, I can send a card myself saying that goodies will arrive.
Except ... The very next day I got a telephone call from a very nice lady at Barr's asking, "You ordered boxes of chocolates yesterday but they are to be sent to an address other than the billing address, yes?" "Well, yes." "Would you like us to prepare a card for you to include with the candies? What message would you like?"
The candy was promptly shipped and arrived in perfect condition if reports are believed. This was a business gift so good impressions were made.
If Barr's Candies provides service this good I can only imagine how wonderful the chocolates must be. Would I use Barr's again? You bet! And, next time I visit Canada I'll be sure to check if a Barr's shop is anywhere near my destination.

As with all of Chocolate Barrs' products, these chocolates are stellar. The range and blend of flavours is wonderful and everything is sooooo fresh! And, as an aside that has nothing to do with the quality of the chocolates, I really appreciated the lovely, hand drawn Valentine card that was included with my gift (I asked for a card, but had no idea it would be so charming). I will definitely keep shopping here!
