The biscuits come in packs of 225.0g and come described as 'Artisnal shortbread enrobed in 50% milk chocolate. Handmade in small batches.' The presentation style of the packaging could be described as sleek and reserved. The plain black box is decorated with fancy looking golden labelling whilst the biscuits inside are about the size of two stacked Hobnob biscuits.
Overall our opening gambit said it all - these Hotel Chocolat Verandah Biscuits are the real deal when it comes to chocolate biscuits. Even Jim, who likes to claim he isn't the biggest chocolate biscuit fan, couldn't get enough of these and helped himself to more than just the token one that most of the rest of the team managed nab. Reflecting on the brand who produced these we probably shouldn't have been so surprised these were as good as they were. Chocolate biscuits aren't the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Hotel Chocolat but these Verandah Biscuits need to seriously been considered next time you make a purchase from there. Let us know if you think they are the real deal @ChocMission.
