I just love the contents of this Halloween chocolate gift set from Hotel Chocolat. You get a milk chocolate slab in the shape of a grave stone, a white chocolate skull lolly, just like the chocolate lollies I reviewed a few months a go, and some Halloween shapes just like the Vintage Buttons I also reviewed.
I suppose everyone that’s read my reviews of Hotel Chocolat before would know that I absolutely adore their chocolate. They don’t profess to make grand crus fine chocolate, but hugely appealing and imaginative chocolates suitable for all the family. Whatever the occasion, you know that if you pop along to
their store that there’ll be something for you there.
For me, the standard Hotel Chocolat has a very distinctive honey taste which is incredibly moreish and nice and smooth:
Whilst the white chocolate skull lolly is their usual fluffy and comforting white chocolate. I just love how extremely sweet and milky it is. If you’re a white chocolate fan then you’ll absolutely adore this lolly.
And then if that wasn’t enough, then you’ve got the milk chocolate Halloween shapes which are great for dishing out to your friends or other kids. Just as with the chocolate grave stone, they’re smooth and with the lovely honey taste. I’m sure my other half will love these. So I’ll sneak them into the chocolate cupboard for her.
Taste: 80% – I’ve got to put this into context. These Halloween chocolate treats aren’t meant to be luxury chocolates, they’re meant to be a bit of fun, but still a lot the small foil wrapped pumpkins I’m going to be reviewing soon, which if they’re anything like the chocolate footballs then they’ll only be suitable for giving away to people you don’t know.
Texture: 80% – It’s the traditional great milk and white chocolate from Hotel Chocolat, which doesn’t deviate from their usual delightful texture.
Appearance: 90% – they always do a great job presenting their chocolate.
Nutritional Information: 65% – there wasn’t a lot there. But I suppose it would be difficult to give complete information given that they seem to come up with new chocolates every day.
Price: 70% – at £10 they’re neither expensive or cheap. They’re maybe more than I’d normally pay, but I am tight. If you’ve got a couple of children and don’t want to give them cheap rubbish then definitely go for these.
Overall: 77% – you’ve got to get them if you’ve got kids.
