Just as we are when it comes to Halloween we are a little sceptical when it comes to Valentines but we know alot of you guys aren't and we that it's our job we point you in the right direction when it comes to buying your special someone a chocolatey gift.
Enter left right and centre Hotel Chocolat's 2015 Sleekster Valentines Selection. We've reviewed this box and few times down the years and it has always come up trumps for us so we thought we would check it out again this year to ensure that the high quality standards had been retained.
The box this year contains 27 heart shaped truffles in a box weighing 290.0g. The collection contains 9 different flavours: Champagne Truffle, Caramel Dizzy Praline, Lemon Berry Tart, Balsamic Caramel, 72% Madagascan Truffle, Salted Almond Praline, Gin Truffle Heart, Passion Fruit Truffle, Caramel Gianduja ... each portioned a plentiful three times.
Presentation wise the box looked immaculate. Unlike most the Valentines Day gifts the box was bereft of garish pink colours and simply went for a simple white design with a red heart on the accompanying sleeve. Inside the hearts also looked attractive with plentiful colour differentiation and an accurate menu matching the pattern work on the chocolates to identify them.
Overall surprise surprise we are going to be recommending that you head to Hotel Chocolat again this year if you want to be impressing a partner this Valentines Day. Yet again they have formulated a chocolate selection box packed full of different styles and flavours that will accomodate a lot, if not everyone's tastes. With milk, white and dark chocolate truffles on offer you simply can't go wrong with this selection. Add to the fact they include some of their best chocolates (such as the Champagne Truffle and various Pralines!) you have everything you could ever want.
