Hotel Chocolat Monday is back and with it comes the summer sun :) Having just enjoyed a weekend of glorious British weather (enjoying it whilst we can!!) the ChocolateMission team is pleased to announce they have managed to combine two of their favourite summer time activities - pear cider drinking and chocolate reviewing :) Nothing beats the refreshment that can be achieved with a ice cold pear cider in a sun baked British beer garden. Hotel Chocolat are obviously also fans of this - just check out these all new Hotel Chocolat Pear Cider Truffles.
Hotel Chocolat's new summer selection boxes but for the purpose of this review we got these in one of their more simplistic selector truffle packages. Aesthetically the truffles looked nice with the green coloured white chocolate contrasting nicely against the jet black dark chocolate.
Overall the team were seriously impressed with these Hotel Chocolat Pear Cider Truffles. As described above the quality of the chocolate was never something in doubt however we were less confident at how the pear cider was going to combine with it. Thankfully and to our great delight it was done really well - the flavour theme was not only pleasurable but it created a taste that was so close to that of real pear cider we almost questioned whether it was right to be eating them so early on in the day! Pear cider fans definitely need to give these a try.
