Love the cinnamon ones
- By SissyB on Sep 13, 2019
I LOVE the cinnamon cashew turtles. Not a big fan of the maple pecan. I really wish they sold each version in its own exclusive package. I can't bring myself to buy these knowing I'm really only going to enjoy half of them.

You have be so spoiled, no other chocolate quite tastes as good or even looks so good. The adorable bees. I made many people very happy during the holidays this year. Pat

John & Kira's is an amazing company! They use local ingredients to make the prettiest chocolates ever! I enjoy ordering them for myself as well as for gifts. Excellent customer service. The Tortoises are soooo delicious, and the ladybugs and bees are as pretty as they are tasty!
Tortoises are great

It is hard to decide which J&K's chocolates are my favorites but these are a very special treat. I wrote a review of the Every Flavor box, but was not sure if I mentioned these. If you like nuts, these are fabulous. I'm always on the lookout for your chocolates when I am in Philadelphia.
Most Scrumptious Tortoise In the World!
- By Robyn Parks on Mar 6, 2019
I am on my 3rd box of these delectable Yummy tortoises. Nuts and caramel are unbelievable. I love John and Kira's. Only chocolatier I will ever order from. Try them you won't be sorry.

I would give these a 10 on the 0-5 scale. Wonderful dark chocolate coating over the perfect caramel with just the right balance of nuts - they truly are amazing. My husband and I are foodies, chocolate connoisseurs (aka snobs) - John & Kira's tortoises (the figs too) are our go-to special occasion treat. We might have invented a few extra "special occasions" when they are on sale. And, I am a registered dietitian who loves chocolate and definitely thinks these are worth it:) Thank you John & Kira!
Not your average turtle!

A must for any turtle lover. John & Kira have created a turtle sensation by adding fresh flavors like cinnamon and maple. Outstanding!
- By Kendra on Sep 11, 2015
I have ordered from John and Kira's quite and few times and always get tremendous responses from everyone I have sent chocolates. Turtles, figs ,peanut butter chocolates and assorted chocolates-you really can't go wrong with anything. The presentation is amazing and the chocolates are high quality and beyond delicious!
Owner Response: Thanks Kendra! Happy to hear that the chocolates were well received.

My new boss, who lives in CT, brought me a box on her most recent trip. The box was so beautiful, I couldn't help try right away. I've never tasted a combination so perfect. Came to website right way to order for someone else.

Deliciously Different Tortoises
- By Nicole on Oct 24, 2012
These tortoises are different in the nuts and the flavors in the caramel. I really love both flavors. Note the cinnamon and the maple are very noticeable so they really are NOT like the typical turtle. The nuts are crunchy as they should be where many a turtle I have eaten has stale nuts and rock hard caramel. I too am a fan of the caramel bees and every flavor box. Thanks and keep up the excellent chocolate making. I have to order my chocolates on line but they always arrive quickly and in excellent condition.
The superior relative to the humble turtle
- By Lindsay on Oct 9, 2012
People, these things are flat-out incredible. We have loved everything we have eaten from J&K (with the exception of the pumpkins), but these are truly incredible. I expected to love the cashews, and the cinnamon scented caramel is delicately balanced, but the pecan tortoises were the winner. The maple caramel didn't taste like the syrup, but rather like a deeper, more complex caramel. Truly a treat. Love that we can buy these at local farmers' markets!
