As well as three boxes of truffles, plus a selection of large and small bars, the compact box is completed by choosing a whopping 650g of Lindt truffle pick 'n' mix. Fill your quota however you like – go all in on 650g of a favourite, or choose a selection from the wide range of flavours, some of which we hadn’t seen before, such as matcha, mango and popcorn truffles.

Monty Bojangles Truffle Trunk

Monty Bojangles Truffle Trunk, Amazon

There’s something magical about this truffle trunk. It takes the magic of wanderlust in a suitcase but filled with boxes of your favourite chocolate flavours, in truffle form. What makes this so perfect is that, when ordering direct from Monty Bojangles, you can actually pick which flavours to have in the suitcase, any it’s only £40 for nine boxes and over 100 truffles, which is great value.

Despite the heavy cocoa coating (make sure you have a wet wipe on hand), the flavours are delicious. We highly recommend the ‘pistachio macarooned’ ones as they have a delicious nutty flavour and crunchy texture amongst the silky truffle. The names of each flavour are quirky, the packaging is colourful and you can even use the trunk for storage when you’ve finished the truffles.

Monty Bojangles (£42)
Amazon (£39.99)
