We are slowly but surely making our way through all of the selection boxes Hotel Chocolat recently sent our way. The variety of the boxes included both new and old selections - some totally new collections of truffles, and others refreshed versions of former favourites. One of the ones we hadn't previously reviewed was this Hotel Chocolat Even Less Sugar H-Box Selection.
Marketing blurb to one side it was time to put the chocolates through the ChocolateMission rating system. The box itself contained 14 chocolates that was made up of 9 different offerings. For a Hotel Chocolat chocolate selection we thought the presentation was a little unexciting. Dont get us wrong it all looked classy but compared to other Hotel Chocolat boxes the pieces themselves looked very alike and dare we say a little boring.
The first pieces we treated ourselves to were the Chocolate Batons. Offering the stronger 50% milk chocolate and ChocolateMission all time favourite 85% dark, these as you can imagine went down rather well. Both high quality, smooth melting, cocoa fuelled pleasures. Superb.
Overall this Hotel Chocolat Even Less Sugar H-Box Selection brought all the usual Hotel Chocolat truffle excellence but in a slightly less glamorous fashion than usual. We are obviously spoilt trying so many different Hotel Chocolat selections but this one in particular just seemed less special than other we have tried recently. The lack of colour and offerings outside of the pralines made these quite a limited selection that those who are not fans of hazelnut will not be able to derive much pleasure from. Luckily for us here (and probably many others!!) we are proponents of their pralines so this was a non-issue. It's worth bearing in mind though if buying for yourself or others as a gift though - there might be more suitable Hotel Chocolat collections to consider.
