Hi All,

First off congratulations to the winners of my Ritter Sport Winter Kreation competition (See HERE). The random number generator picked out commenters Richard, Andrew and Hollie. I hope you guys view the site this weekend - you have one week to send me your addresses to claim your prizes.

Those of you who didn't win, don't worry ... there are a few more competitions coming to the site before Christmas soon!

Speaking of Christmas I'm currently beavering away writing tons of reviews for the site in the coming weeks. On my tasting deck at the moment I have Hotel Chocolat, Heavenly Cakes, Chocri and various Christmas themed chocolate cakes. Suffice to say there are some exciting things to come :D

Have great weekends and please feel free to get in contact.

Hotel Chocolat The H-Box Christmas Selection

Last week '7Days of Chocolate Reviews' got put aside to make room for my review of the Hotel Chocolat The Sleekster Classic Christmas Selection. Within my review of that fantastic selection I passed comment that it was available in several different sizes and formats. Well the people dishing out the samples at Hotel Chocolat were extra kind to me this year because they also sent me a Hotel Chocolate The H-Box Christmas Selection box to make my way through.

This 150.0g box contained 13 of the original 17 pieces I reviewed last week - Cranberry & Apple, Cinnamon Praline, Milk Liquid Caramel, Milk Chocolate Christmas Bauble, Dark Liquid Caramel, Caramel Chocolate Christmas Tree, Mulled Wine, Champagne Star, Red Berry Mousse, House Praline, Florentine Dream, Crunchy Praline and Rum Ingot. If you missed out on my review from last weekend then I suggest you take a look HERE. Priced at £11.00 vs the £20.00 for the original sized collection, this is a great option for anyone looking for the Hotel Chocolat Christmas experience on a budget.
