Product: ’You Crack Me Up’ extra thick egg. From Hotel Chocolat
Description: Milk chocolate easter egg selection.
I was pleasantly surprised to find a Hotel Chocolat Easter Egg to review on my doorstep on Friday. For me, one of the greatest attractions of Hotel Chocolat, is the unusual and sometimes quirky yet always tasteful, chocolate products offered by the company. So different from the usual mass produced offerings at easter. This year, their easter selection is no exception.
Another plus of Hotel Chocolat, as far as I am concerned, is their Engaged Ethics sustainable Cocoa program. This program draws in over 100 independant Saint Lucia Island cocoa growers to Hotel Chocolats’ Rabot Estate. The aim is to provide a sustainable future for the growers on Saint Lucia and Ghana. More can be read on their website: Hotelchocolate.co.uk/ethics.
But I digress. Back to the easter egg! The egg itself comes in a lovely, elegant tall round box (if such a thing is grammatically possible) tied with a black ribbon. If your looking for an easter gift to make a favourable impression, then the packaging of this easter egg will do it in spades. On opening the lid, you find the milk chocolate egg, each extra thick half wrapped in gold foil and containing, nestled in white tissue paper, the individual easter chocolates. The box also contains a ‘Menu’ card that features pictures and descriptions of each of the chocolates.
