Due to poor packaging four of the ten baskets received were broken at a total cost of $30.00 including shipping. Disappointing is the least of my satisfaction. loose baskets between two pieces of cardboard wrapped in plastic is inadequate.

My original review was not good. I had gotten a shipment that were broken and or melted. Langs had me send pictures and sent a full replacement. The chocolates were delicious.

These were absolutely gorgeous and were delicious. I used them for an Easter tea party. My only critique was that the weaving on the basket was not as pronounced as it showed on the picture. I'm not sure why that was, but I was a bit disappointed.
