The Queen's favorite chocolates are sitting pride of place in a photo of her latest official engagement. Twitter fans notice the commonality between all three brands and are rushing out the door to stock up on the tasty treats!

The Queen's favorite chocolates have been revealed and her fans are delighted that HRH seems to keep the three brands within reaching distance!

Fans noticed the boxes of chocolates in adorable snaps in photos taken during an official engagement at Windsor Castle. Her Majesty received Rear Admiral James Macleod and Major General Eldon Millar—the soon-to-be-former Defence Services Secretary and his successor.

One Twitter user commented, "I can’t help being nosy and seeing that her Majesty is well supplied for chocolates there, including #fortnumandmason champagne truffles and #Bendicksmints."


Bendicks Chocolate Mint Collection 200g, $6.80 (£5) | Amazon 

These delicious chocolates are a British classic and a perfect sweet treat to enjoy after a meal to freshen your breath.

Another added, "So nice to see, that her Majesty obviously loves spring and the Bendicks Mint Collection!"

Although it's unclear whether she shared any of her confectionaries with the gentlemen, what is clear is the common thread between the brands of chocolates.


Dark Sea Salt Caramel Chocolate Truffles, $21.80 (£16) | Charbonnel et Walker

A rich, dark chocolate truffle filled with a silky smooth caramel and sea salt center.

One Twitter user spotted that all three iconic brands have received Her Majesty's personal, and official seal of approval! Two boxes of @Fortnums chocolates.  Centre box of Bendicks (Mayfair) Ltd Mint Chcolate. 1 (white with blue ribbon) box of @Charbonnel confectionary. All have royal warrants by ‘Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen’  👑 of🍫."


Milk & Dark Chocolate Selection Box, $37.65 (£27) | Fortnum & Mason

A mix of the iconic British brand's most popular milk and dark chocolates. They taste, and look, fit for a Queen!

According to the Royal Family's website, "A Royal Warrant of Appointment is granted as a mark of recognition to people or companies who have regularly supplied goods or services to HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh or HRH The Prince of Wales or their Households."

The ultimate Royal seal of approval! However, they also assert that these warrants can be removed if the brands/companies in question don't keep their output up to scratch.

So if you want to indulge in sweet treats fit for an actual Queen—treat yourself to a box of one of Her Majesty's favorites.
