Us reviewing Hotel Chocolat's Christmas selection boxes is about as inevitable as the big day itself landing on December 25th :-) Yes indeed we have been taste testing our way through many a Hotel Chocolat Christmas sampling package and today we bring you our thoughts on the 'Classic Christmas Selection'. Remember all ChocolateMission can get 10% off their online orders by inputting the discount code CMISSIONHCWIN10 at the checkout.
This box came billed as "The essential collection of our finest Christmas chocolates - just perfect for sharing and mingling". The 300.0g box contains offering 28 chocolates comprised of 12 different festive varieties. The presentation and packaging as you would expect is top notch. The outer cardboard box was deemed both eye-catching and festive with the bright use of colours and gold and silver decorative pattern work. As you will see below the chocolates were also suitably crafted with some real standout pieces. Onto the taste test....
Overall in-line with all expectations this Hotel Chocolat The Classic Christmas Selection did exactly what it promised and delivered a fine collection of chocolates that we well matched for the Christmas holiday season. The whole package is well designed with attention to detail shown both on the design of the box and the inner chocolates with some very intricately sculpted truffles. If your preference is to pick and choose certain truffles in their selector format then our suggestions would be to prioritize heading in the direction of the Caramel Supernova, Pistachio Praline Crunch and Nutmeg & Almond truffles. Those are the standouts but to be honest the whole collection is special enough to choose for gifting or treating oneself. ChocolateMission recommended.
