Morse Toad is a great concept.
Firstly, who doesn’t like to receive nice post?
And who doesn’t like to receive chocolate?
Well, I love to receive both! And I love to write poems too, so this is what I’d like to say about Morse Toad…
When you want to say ‘thanks’ or ‘congrats’ or ‘well done’,
Morse Toad chocolates are second to none!
They’ve a list of occasions you might want to use,
There’s bound to be one that you’d like to choose!
With an option to add a heart-warming snap,
You can personalise your delicious, chocolatey pack.
And ordering’s easy with one or two clicks,
With delivery choices, just take you pick!
Morse Toad have thought of it all, and more…
The chocs go through your letterbox, straight through your door,
It’s great value for money; you can see from their shop,
Stay in your PJ’s, don’t shop til you drop!
And what about the chocolate? Well that’s yummy too,
If you’re lucky, the receiver might leave some for you…
The best Belgian chocolate, so smooth and so scrummy,
There’s an edible greeting card for everyone’s tummy!

You can hop over (like a Morse ‘Toad’!) to Morse Toad’s message service to see their range, which would make great secret Santa presents, and there’s something there for your family too, befitting all occasions (as the poem above suggests!)
chocolate Christmas cards and stocking fillers: something for Mum, Dad or your friends.
The reason being that we love to be positive and use empowering words in our house (and I
secretly blatantly knew she would share her chocolatey stash with me us!). I chose to add a picture of her with her cousins and this was great value at an extra £1. That in itself is awesome, to add an even more personal touch and sending a strong message that they are all awesome. When you order, the website says that you can take the picture out and pop it in a frame. I thought that would be a lovely and unique touch and was intrigued to see how this would work.
When we received the parcel, this was my favourite feature. You could easily slip the picture out of the box and pop it in a frame! What an awesome idea…
The packaging appears to be sturdy enough to drop through a high letterbox without breaking up. And there’s even a note on the box to keep the package out of the sun! Once opened, there is plastic cover that slots easily over the chocolate pieces.
Mine (or our daughter’s!) package arrived within 2 days of placing the order (which was done in the evening) and here’s her favourite part of it:
The picture of her with her cousins, the letters and hearts and the really yummy chocolate! (all of it then really!)
When she saw the box with the picture inside, she was really excited and said she wanted to put the picture in a frame next to her bed. How lovely! She read the words and I took a moment to reaffirm to her that is awesome, so are her cousins and so are we! Keen to have some chocolate, she took the sturdy plastic cover away (which was easy to do) and pointed out 2 pieces to have.
We both decided it was really smooth, yummy and most importantly, chocolatey! Highly recommended! (and Daddy agreed when it was his turn to sample his pieces.
My favourite part:
Watching our daughter’s face when she opened the box to see the picture, letting her read the message and telling her that she IS awesome!
And also showing her that she could take the picture out.
Some other good points to note:
The chocolate does not contain alcohol and is kosha accredited. It does not contain eggs, and is gluten free. This is good, quality chocolate and I’ll bet that not many messages stay in tact for long. If they do, someone has very good willpower!
What I would change:
If I could change one thing about the packaging, it would be to put the chocolate pieces in a ‘rigid’ tray within the box. By that I mean something to keep the pieces in their rightful places. Not only would this stop the remaining pieces from rattling around, it would keep the message making sense (in the early stages when not too many pieces are gone!)
But really, this is a great value-for-money product. I can see this will become very popular once word gets around.
