For the third year running, I’m very happy to be able to spread the Hotel Chocolat love with readers of Kavey Eats and just like before, I have three great prizes to share with you which I’ve chosen myself from their 2012 Christmas selection.
Having missed the preview night, Hotel Chocolat generously sent me a goodie bag so I could try this year’s range for myself. I really like the simpler and more elegant design theme they’ve chosen – lots of white with accents of pale blue, silver and gold. As always, there are products available at a range of prices, from small and inexpensive stocking fillers and tree ornaments to large hampers filled with gifts.
Several of the chocolates in the Classic Christmas selection are very sweet – too sweet for me – but Pete rather enjoyed them. Luckily there’s a wide range to choose from including marzipans, pralines and salted caramels, which are more to my taste.
1st Prize – Rather Large Christmas Cracker
An enormous cracker at 64 centimetres long, this one may be best for sharing. It’s filled with 40 chocolates, 12 party hats and jokes too. This item retails for £38.
2nd Prize – The Festive Collection
Pete and I are both big fans of Port, so I like the inclusion of a 50 ml bottle of Special Reserve Aged Tawny and one of Ruby Port to enjoy with the chocolate – a cookie wreath, 6 rum and raisin truffles and Dasher’s dream slab. This item retails for £25.
3rd Prize – Gingerbread Liquid Chocolat Drinking Chocolate
Smooth, rich hot chocolate with a warming gingerbread flavour, this is a fabulous winter warmer. This item retails for £10.
Each of the three prizes includes delivery in the UK.
