Hotel Chocolat

Hotel Chocolat - For Truffles, Rocky Road, Slabs and more

In 1993, Angus Thirlwell and Peter Harris founded Hotel Chocolat (sometimes mistakingly called Hotel au chocolate, Hotel du Chocolat and even Hotel de Chocolat). The company began as a mail order business offering quality chocolate throughout the UK. The business was then called Choco Express and in 1998 introduced the Chocolate Tasting Club. The company was renamed Hotel Chocolat in 2003 and their first retail store was opened in 2004. Today, 33 retail shops exist throughout the UK, in addition to its mail order website. In 2007, Hotel Chocolat was introduced to the United States.

Chocolate Slabs

Hotel Chocolat offers their giant Chocolate Slabs made from all natural ingredients. The giant slabs of chocolate measure 250x170mm, and are available in milk, dark or white chocolate. These giant chocolate slabs can also be combined with hazelnuts, almonds, Italian coffee, Tutti Frutti or cocoa nibs.
