Hotel Chocolat – Easter egg!!

Easter is fast approaching and I’m lucky enough to receive a looovely easter egg from Hotel Chocolat to try. Here it is:

It came in a firm cardboard box so the box itself is in excellent condition, tied with a black bow it will really make an impression present. I was going to take a photo myself but I don’t think I could’ve done a better job than the picture above!

Normal easter eggs are quite thin-shelled, they can look quite big and still be eaten fairly quickly. Not this baby. Its thick shell will literally break your teeth… I gave the whole half (the milk chocolate half, I’m saving the dark chocolate half for myself) to Ashleigh, he couldn’t even make a dent… he ended up shaving the shell with his teeth! We had to break it up with hands. It lasts forever!

Apart from the chocolate egg itself, there’re 12 scrummy truffles inside, ALL alcoholic!!! There are Champagne, Pink champagne, Mojito, White port, Vodka and Amaretto (two of each). I think my favourite is Pink champagne, it has a very nice creamy champagne centre with a pink “shell” which is strawberry flavoured. James had the mojito one and he choked… haha. I had a lick and I nearly choked too, despite being a bit too strong for my taste, it does have a very refreshing mint flavour like a real mojito! I’m not sure if the mint choked me or the rum…

All in all it is a very elegant looking box of easter egg, filled with high quality chocolate. I think it does justify the £26 price tag, especially if you want to treat someone this easter! 🙂
