Last year it was 5# for the price. This year 3#.

@4leaf   That is quite an increase.  I tried Wagonners chocolates from Evine last year and they are really good.   I think it was $49 for 5 pounds but although they included little gift boxes, there were no fancy tins or Christmas themed boxes.

If their candy is so special why do they wrap them in such cheap looking paper?  I'd be embarrassed to gift when the wrappers look like drug store brand.  Gold and Silver wrap would make them look 'special'.

I was just looking at the replay and thought the same thing about Harry London. Last year, I purchased 3lbs of the Waggoner candies from Evine for half the price and thought the value and taste of the chocolate was good.

I have a cousin who always orders Harry London chocolates around Christmas (or maybe it's the Christmas TSV.)  I have tried a piece or two and don't understand why it's so popular.  I didn't think it was that great.

I looked up my orders for 2018 & 2017. In 2018 there were 5 smaller tins/nutcrackers but they had 8 ounces so that is only 2 1/2 lbs for $39.94.  In 2017 there was 3 lbs of candy for $38.95. I don't remember how many tins/nutcrackers but they were bigger. If I remember correctly in 2016 they had individual boxes not tins/nutcrackers. Ferrero who makes Nutella bought Harry London in 2017. It will be interesting to see if they will bring back the tins. That was the main reason I bought the chocolates.

@deeva, I'm with you. See's and a couple of our local brands (and even some well known national brands) are wonderful and a much better price point!
