I shall be spending my Mothers Day with Hotel Chocolat.
< Just look at what the postman brought me this morning! Wow just look at those. How amazing do they look? From the moment i opened up the lid i was smitten with them. The colours are so beautiful and bold. So creative and thoughtfully done. I knew straight away that they were now my new best friend.
I love Chocolates like any woman would but these are not just any chocolates,oh no.They are the Sleekster All About Mum selection from fabulous Hotel Chocolat.I was overwhelmed when i was contacted and asked if little old me would like to review a box of their finest chocolates.I jumped at the chance obviously,who wouldn't?
Mother's Day is coming up fast and will be upon us before we know it.We all love chocolate so what greater gift could we possibly buy.I had a little help as i had to share with my mum which was only fair hehe.So lets get started and here we go > Mmm. Nom Nom Nom
This box has been designed with every mother in mind.It has been created especially for mums to enjoy with their feet up - with uplifting fruit recipes,silky smooth cream truffles and melt-away pralines.There are 13 different amazing chocolates to choose from,one to suit every ones needs I'm sure.
My 1st choice was the Strawberry Love,a beautiful white chocolate heart shaped chocolate with a pretty pink heart on the top.Oh my how lovely it was.The tangy strawberry ganache is to die for.I loved the colour and the texture,the crisp white chocolate as you bite into it and then the soft and smooth strawberry centre.It was lush.I was enjoying it so much that i missed the fact that my OH had walked past the box and grabbed the other one.I was horrified,he had stolen my delicious choccie and left me totally gutted as i was truly looking forward to eating that one to.Typical men,just cant leave our chocolates alone,tut tut.
My next favourite was the Blueberry Truffle which again is a white chocolate shell but this time it had the most amazing purple coloured middle which was bursting with real blueberry goodness.It tasted so good.Its such an amazing taste,i can hardly describe it.Again the colours are so great they make you fall in love with the little chocolate before you even bite into it so its defiantly true what they say,we eat with our eyes before we do with our mouths!
There are so many wonderful flavours to pick from in this 1 fantastic box.You have Liquid Caramel and Peanut Passions. Banana Splits and Champagne Truffles. Bakewell Tarts and Caramel Sweethearts.
They are all fantastic and so so delicious.This was my first ever time trying Hotel Chocolat choccies but i am so glad that i have as i know i will defiantly be buying from them in future.
There is another special treat for us mummies in this box too.Some of the chocolates contain alcohol,oh yes! The lovely Bakewell Tart contains cherry brandy and amaretto which is very powerful to taste.I love a nice glass of wine every now and again and even enjoy the odd chocolate liquor every once in a while so these were great. The Champagne Truffle also contains generous splashes of Marc de Champagne.There is one other that also contains mouth watering Armagnac brandy called Love-Me-Do.A beautiful milk chocolate heart shaped delight.
I can truly say that i have enjoyed this review so much,it has been a real pleasure to do.I have gone through so many different taste sensations in one day that i don't think my poor taste buds could actually handle any more.If you are looking to buy your mum choccies this Mothers Day then i would definitely have a look at the fantastic selection that Hotel Chocolat have to offer.They sell the most beautiful chocolates i have ever seen! From the box,the lid even the plastic covering which has all been beautifully designed.The chocolates are almost too pretty to eat and i say almost as i managed it.If i had to give a score it would be 10 out of 10 for me,i could not fault them at all.The price is reasonable and well worth every penny! The colours,tastes and textures are amazing and the whole experience of eating them has been just a complete joy.
