When we were asked if we would like to review some gluten free products from Hotel Chocolat, we had no idea what a treat was in store for us. We were rather stunned when a splendid package arrived, and it was pretty much a chocoholics paradise in our house. We were sent a Triple Chocolate Wham Bam bar, 500g in size, a box of Classic Champagne truffles, and The Large Signature Chocolate collection.
Where do we start? The Wham Bam chocolate bar, which is a pretty impressively sized specimen of chocolate, was squabbled over by children and adult's alike and has something for everyone, in it, with a little milk, a little dark and a swirl of white chocolate to finish it off. The children and my husband had to break it into small pieces to enjoy over a few days, because I am mean and wouldn't let them eat it all in one go.... This would be a perfect Christmas present for a chocolate lover, a great stocking filler or just as something different from your usual chocolate bar.
The Classic Champagne truffles are also a perfect gift, or just when you want something that littlle bit more than a normal box of chocolates. They are light, creamy, and not too overpowering. They come in such a pretty box, as well. If you are looking for a gift for a teacher, childminder, or someone you work with, these would be perfect, and they are very, very moreish.
We were very impressed with packaging, presentation and the taste of all the chocolates, and would definately recommened them. If you love chocolate, or know someone who does, any of these items would be a great gift or treat. You can never have too much good chocolate, I think anyone would be happy to eat them, and the fact that they are gluten free is wonderful, because it means you can get them for somoen who is gluten intolerant, and know you are not only getting them something safe they can eat, but also something really special. That's a winner for us.
