The Hotel Chocolat Christmas Goody Bag

At a time of year when all we really want to do is eat tasty food and raise a glass or two to Christmas, we are all now starting to feel the Christmas spirit that is swirling all around us.

If you are like me… You may not have completely finished your Christmas shopping yet, and you may even be beginning to panic a little? Fear not, Santa will deliver all of his gifts on time, even if you have not yet managed to get your letter over to him.

But if you are stuck for Christmas gift ideas, I am pleased to be able to tell you all about a very tasty gift you could be giving this year.

I have been munching my way through the Hotel Chocolat Christmas Goody Bag. I haven’t been devouring it all on my own though, funnily enough as soon as chocolate arrives in our house there is a steady line of people who would like to eat it.

We chose the Goody Bag as there was a nice selection of different tasty treats inside, and I wanted to try a few different types of their range as I have never actually tried Hotel Chocolat Chocolate before. I felt this was a good way to see what I liked and what I wasn’t so keen on.

The Goody Bag consists of Hotel Chocolat’s favourite chocolatey goodies, all presented in a smart presentation box and tied with a bow. The box retails at £18.00 and comes packed with a Cookie and Caramel Wreath, 6 Christmas Mess Chocolates, 6 Treacle Tart Chocolates and 3 Milk Chocolate Santa’s.

 Now having tried everything out of the selection in this pack I can say that I enjoyed both the Mess and Tart Chocolates, and the Chocolate Santa’s. Personally I would have liked to see some more of the Chocolate Santa’s as they were quite small and would have added that little bit more to the contents.

I wasn’t that keen on the Chocolate Wreath and actually this is the only bit of chocolate that hasn’t been devoured by the masses in our house. I do prefer simple chocolate and this just seemed a little too rich for my tastes.

I think the Hotel Chocolat Goody Bag is a lovely gift and is a nice way to introduce Hotel Chocolat to people like myself who haven’t tried the products before. I was impressed with the over all selection that was included but would like to see a little more for £18.00.
