Thorntons is launching Scrumptious a gift box of boutique chocolates for fashion-conscious Valentine's Day gifting.

The box contains a mix of premium milk and dark chocolates with praline, caramel and ganache centres (rsp: £4.99). It will be available exclusively from Tesco at the beginning of next month, followed by a wider roll-out at the end of the month.

Sales and operations director Barry Bloomer expected the packaging to appeal to "fashion-conscious shoppers" looking for an affordable treat.
