I received a message from hotel chocolat just before Christmas asking if I would like to review one of their gift sets. Of course I jumped at the chance! (Who wouldn’t!? )
I have shopped at the Manchester store various times and find their chocolate slabs great as gifts (and ahem..personal use)
I received a parcel the next day, sent special delivery and knew straight away who my parcel was from.
The boys loved the little Santa shapes and polished these off as soon as they saw them! I’d like to say they were nice but I didn’t get a chance to even see the little chocolates, never mind taste them. They all agreed that it was definitely chocolate and “did I have any more?”
Apart from being little pieces of art these tasted gorgeous. The bottom pink layer is sweet and tart followed by the creamy strawberry mousse and meringue sprinkles on top. I’d definitely buy these again as a treat.
This was very messy to eat and very rich. I don’t think somebody could eat the whole thing in one sitting (although any one of my boys would have been happy to try!) I don’t think I would re-buy this.
Overall I’m very impressed. I think the price is a little out of my gift allowance for chocolate but I’d be very happy to receive this (hint hint) and would definitely repurchase single items from the bag as gifts.
** I received this free of charge for the purpose of review. My views are my own personal opinions of the product.
