Do You Chocolat?

I think chocolate is my favourite thing, but GOOD chocolate is even better, so I was delighted to recently receive a gorgeous package of loveliness to try from Hotel Chocolat. I am a big fan of Hotel Chocolat and remember years ago being given a large chocolate slab covered in coffee beans which was just amazing and all of their chocolates make a fantastic gift (hint hint if my family and friends are reading this…)

The selection we tried was the Christmas Chocolate Goody Bag, containing six Billionaire’s Shortbread chocolates, a milk/white chocolate slab, a milk/dark Christmas wreath and a milk chocolate reindeer. It didn’t last long.

The bag itself is beautifully presented, but the contents were a real treat. From the velvety smooth praline in the Billionaire’s Shortbread, to the Christmas wreath which was packed with fruit, biscuit and nuts every item was as delicious as the last. It’s well worth the Β£17 price tag and, as I said, they didn’t last long at all :0/

This gift bag is part of Hotel Chocolat’s range of Christmas gifts and there is plenty there for all tastes and budgets. If you’re looking for some stocking fillers for the children, then these are catered for as well, and if you do happen to buy online from Hotel Chocolat there are some free gift options if you spend over Β£60.

To find out more about Hotel Chocolat and their delicious range of lovelies, take a look at their website, their Facebook page or their Twitter page.

BUT! The lovely people at Hotel Chocolat are giving YOU the opportunity to win the Christmas Chocolate Goody Bag in my giveaway. Yay!

      Oh. My. God. I *WANT* this!!!! How could you possibly expect me to choose just *one* thing from the selection?! Having experienced the deep bliss that is Hotel Chocolat in the past I can only say I am insanely jealous of your Goody Bag. If I had to choose, I would probably go for the box of chilli penguins. Mainly because neither my husband or son would want to try them (mine, all miiiiine).
      I will be tweeting too. Repeatedly, if it gets me extra entries πŸ˜‰

    2. Mel Butcher says:

      I’d love to try The Christmas Cuisine Gift Basket, it’s really intriguing me.

    3. I could be greedy and say the Β£100 hamper with added alcohol ;0) but quite like the look of the Goody Bag you had.

      I’ve had Some of their yummines in the past too. Hmmm. Fond memories.

      Tweeting too.

      • Stacey says:

        Ha, yeah – loadsamoney! Also, the prize is the goody bag, not what you pick from the site. Did I not make that clear? *madly edits post*

    4. kerri says:

      oh yummers alternative mince pies :))))

    5. Julie Glandfield says:

      Oh wow wow wow, they all look so delicious. If I could pick anything from the Christmas range it would be the Luxury Truffles to Share Christmas Advent Calendar. I would love opening this each day with a nice cup of tea and my hubby. I would just have to make sure he didn’t eat them both.

    6. Kerry Robinson says:

      I know the perfect person to give this to as a Christmas present. ME.

      The Classic Christmas Basket looks fab, it’s the only way there would be enough to share in my house!!

    10. Rover's aunt says:

      Oh my, Christmas could get messy this year! I’ve just ordered the Chocolate Christmas crackers for my Christmas table and the Chocolate Nutty Yule Log. Thinking of the Yule log (did I say thinking…meant drooling) you need to tell your contacts at Hotel Chocolat that there is an error in the description of the product. They have used the word “share”. I’m sorry but that word and the Nutty Yule Log should NOT be in the same sentence. I know Christmas is all about giving & not receiving and sharing, but I am NOT going to share that bad boy with anyone!! It looks delicious. A fantastic alternative for those of us who hate Christmas cake (no choc), Cbristmas puds (no choc) & mince pies (again no choc).

    11. Ashleigh says:

      I love the look of the christmas wreath! Yummy and festive πŸ™‚

    38. lisa williams says:

      chocolate is good but luxury chocolate is even BETTER. xx πŸ™‚

    39. Jay says:

      If I’m honest, I’d probably go for the one you had – I love their seasonal goody bags with lots of new things to try. Think my favourite ever was a summer one which contained – among lots of other things – some rhubarb flavoured white chocolate. Very yummy!!

      @cheekychicken24 on Twitter – have tweeted too!

    40. Laura Barker says:

      I like the tiddly penguins and reindeer. I love novelty Christmas chocolates!!

    41. Caroline Ashton says:

      I’ve tweeted as @comps53.

      Also my favourite would be the The Happy Family Christmas Hamper – as to receive it would make this family very happy indeed! All that choice – the tiddly reindeer, the yule log, the alternative mince pies, etc., etc. Where would you begin… and could you get your favourite before someone else snatches it? You’d have a similar problem with your prize – which to have first? Decisions, decisions!

      fab pretty chocolate slab easy on the eye and the tastebuds! nice to look at but i bet its better to eat!!!!

    44. Natalie Stewart says:

      The Goody Bag looks amazing, but I would have to choose the Christmas Family Hamper….. It’s a hard choice to narrow down, so I’ve chosen based on the word Family- I’m expecting our first child at Christmas, and the Family Hamper would be a lovely celebration!

    45. Pam says:

      Wow, so many scrummy things to choose from.I would go for the Goody bag of the season.

      Definitely the orange tangs! Chocolate + orange = my idea of heaven πŸ˜€

    53. Adele A says:

      Mmm my mouth was watering just browsing their site!

      I looked at the Hotel Chocolat range, I think some of the seasonal products like the caramel chocolate penguins are such a cute idea for a stocking-filler! But one of my personal favourites that I can’t get enough of are the truffles selection! Nom nom. So indulgent! <3

    54. dorit vaknine says:

    58. Teresa Lee says:

      The ‘Tiddly Milk Reindeer’ and the ‘Tiddly Caramel Penguins’ look like great stocking fillers for the grandkids…..oh! and don’t tell anyone, but maybe a ‘White Chocolate Frosty The Snowman’ for myself.

    66. Tracy Nixon says:

      Thanks for the great review and giveaway!

      I love the Christmas Table Crackers – I would buy one for each family member to put on the Christmas table for when we have our Turkey Dinner. We always start our dinner off with a pull of a cracker each so we can wear the hat! Then we raise our glasses, have a toast, then pull some party poppers!!!! It is tradition for our family!

      These crackers would be a real treat as they contain gorgeous Christmas shaped chocolates!!!
