Arden & Amici Chocolate Panettone Review

I have already reviewed the Arden & Amici Chocolate chip Panettone but I wanted to highlight their Chocolate Panettone too as it is quite different, even though the packaging is almost identical. They both come elegantly wrapped, great for if you need a last minute gift idea for a chocoholic!

The main difference with the Arden & Amici Chocolate Panettone is that it has a rich chocolate coating over the top of the bread, aswell as the chocolate chips within it.

From an aesthetic point of view, it is fabulous. The chocolate is a glossy dark brown, whilst the golden colour of the actual bread is mouthwatering! The smells from the panettone are pretty fantastic too, it has a delicious buttery chocolate fragrance.

The texture of the bread was slightly drier than the other panettones I have tried from the Arden & Amici range which is to be expected with a chocolate chip panettone. It is still fantastically soft compared to most panettones I have tried from other ranges. The chocolate chips and outer coating have a sweet but rich cocoa flavour. Overall it is a fantastic bread, especially to enjoy with a strong coffee, and it looks gorgeous too.

I received the Arden & Amici Chocolate Panettone to review but all views expressed are my own.

The Arden & Amici Panettone range is available in Waitrose.


  1. This looks much nice than the panettone that I tried the other day! The chocolate on the top looks really good!

    1. It looks so good doesn't it? It tasted divine too :)

  2. Mmmmmmm this looks delish. Great photos. I'm going to try the Drunken version you reviewed a few weeks back. Can't wait!

    1. Thank you Flipmode!

      And well done getting the Drunken version, it's sold out everywhere now. You will love it, yum yum!

  3. This does look really good and the way you have described it makes it sound delicious. I've just made a massive Stollen that is gradually disappearing! Once it has gone maybe I'll give this a try.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!
