Hotel Chocolat - The Christmas Goody Bag review

Hotel Chocolat is not usually the first one i'd head to for chocolate, i haven't ever really seen much about the brand so when i was contacted by them regarding their Christmas Range i was very excited to explore what they had in store!

This is one of the most ingenious chocolate gift products i have ever come across! Perfect for any woman that loves chocolate and handbags! It looks so cute in it's monochrome colours and stuffed full of chocolatey goodness. If you wanted to, you could even separate the four goodies inside into stocking fillers or smaller gifts if you preferred.

Inside the goody bag:

"Fabulously fruity cranberry ganache and strawberry mousse with meringue sprinkles"
These look absolutely stunning, gorgeously designed mini desserts in little cups just waiting to be devoured! They sound amazing and taste even nicer! They definitely are fabulously fruity and mixed with the meringue provides a balanced strong-sweet treat - perfect for sharing at christmas too!

"Containing three irresistibly cute milk chocolate Santas – perfect for pockets, stockings and Christmas nibbling"
These are such a cute little stocking filler! The box contains a trio of festive milk chocolate santas which definitely get you in the mood for christmas and are a perfect treat for munching whilst watching a christmas film! The detail of them is amazing too! (i've actually already invested in another of these to go in a little hamper i'm putting together for a friend!) 

"A marriage of molasses and runny caramel crowned with a crunchy shortbread biscuit."
These look so yummy they are the first thing i got my hands on in the bag! They are so cute to look at and would make the perfect mini chocolate gift for anyone that loves caramel shortbread! (although they are very moreish!) They are crunchy with a surround of velvety chocolate that is filled with caramel and provides a very sweet treat!

"Inspired by one of the absolute classic flavour combinations of mellow 50% cocoa milk chocolate working in perfect harmony with nibbly cookies and hand cut florentines that beautifully balance the sweetness of the chocolate. Perfect for slicing and sharing with family and friends"
I think the description pretty much sums this up! It looks beautiful but be warned, it is a little tricky to 'slice' because of it's thickness! (just over an inch thick!) Although it is great for sharing but it is not for the faint hearted.. it is a very rich chocolate with cocoa cookie pieces that will be perfect for the lovers of stronger chocolate among us!
It is also suitable for vegetarians!

This Christmas Goody Bag can be bought via the Hotel Chocolat website or within various stores for the price of £18.00! I think for normal gifts this may be a little bit pricey but it's Christmas.. i think people deserve a treat and i definitely hope to find something under the tree from these this christmas.. I think the rest of the family are too!
(if you order by 6pm they also do Next Day Delivery!)

*I was sent this product by Hotel Chocolat free of charge but all above opinions are my own
