Chocolate workshop that was a christmas present

This 1 has got the potential to be a really nice afternoon i was given a Christmas present last year of some off-road driving which didn’t suit me soIMAG0999[1] i looked for something else on the buyagift.com website
managed to trade quite an easy transaction

We went to the Langdon hotel in hove
A little surprised to have no parking, but worth knowing £5 for 11 hours…and just off the seafront.

Nice IMAG0993[1]enough facilities so far…£5 for a couple of coffees while waiting so again, not too bad…IMAG1002[1]

The whole thing about truffles, is that they are very rich, and i have to say that  i don’t actually like the taste of what i made, but the important part is the workshop was such a lot of fun , a great exercise in meeting people. sharing. having a chuckle

I would recommend  the workshops to any one for the above and if you like chocolate ( or like me , you think you do  ) then its a great session IMAG1000[1]

The package that we had, or as close as i can find to it is  here 

Sorry about the pictures, all i can say is i had sticky fingers  and it wasn’t easy  taking them

its all about the Sharing” especially when they are this good ” hotelchocolat” the summer fusions sleekster

So the purpose of a sponsored blog is to have some one send you a product, you fully evaluate it, and leave an honest opinion, I have to admit, I cant do that here today…..

Why ? you may ask. well as followers of my blog will know, it really is ” all about the sharing” and i firmly believe that if you are in this for any other reason, then you should have a re think..

So any way, I was asked to provide feedback on a new selection from the people at hotelchocolat

I was given a choice of what  was sent to me , and I went for  the  summer fusions sleeker. I knew i was to be sharing these out  at work , to get the most opinions, and therefore went for  what looked like the best selection

The Summer Fusions SleeksterNow at this point I would like to show you  lots of pictures of people enjoying choccy,  but I cant, I would like to tell you that some people said  that they were to rich in taste, but  they didn’t, so I cant , I would also like to tell you that I personally enjoyed  every one, But as it’s all about the sharing I cant. even do that

What I can say is everyone that had some  loved them, the comments were all good, from the MD  and right across the board.

The Hotelchocolate website where these lovely chocolates can be bought   describes them far better than i can as

“A collection of 28 chocolates to compliment your summer in the most delicious way. Packed with fresh, fruity flavours, indulgent caramels and nutty pralines, it’s the ultimate taste of summer! Perfect for warm afternoon picnics, sharing during the long restful evenings, or as a dinner party gift – if you can bear to part with it, of course.”

 

I would just say that although i was sent a box to review , and  there was no real way for me to return the product, overall, with the nice  packaging The Summer Fusions Sleekster in pastel colours, with the  attention to detail , including a card for me, and the brilliant way  they are presented in the box, although they are £24.00  for a box, this The Summer Fusions Sleekstershouldn’t be thought of as expensive,  just ”  reassuringly well  priced for quality  ”

My only regret  is that  just as when i was a small ” oldmanleslie” and I finished the last choccy on the layer, i wished there had been another layer underneath , And as we dont have long boozy afternoons at work, i cant  say how good these would be after a long BBQ session, i can only imagine

Thanks to the nice people at Hotelchocolate ,

Hotel Chocolate – Easter Pick Me Up

The yellow topped eggs, were  lovely, Rich  gooey liquid centres that  tasted Yummy
And as for  the strawberry chocolates, they were simply out of this world.
I cant say that it was nice to  have 1 special chocolate with a cup of coffee or tea,Or that the selection lasted very long, as it didn’t. But all of the people who had them liked them.
Full of uplifting Easter goodies and seasonal specialities to nibble and even share!
Well, I did the sharing, everyone liked them, thanks to the good people at Hotel Chocolate for sending them to me
If you want to buy them, then i would say they are worth every penny, and they can be bought for  £13.00 ( UK )
I’m just sorry I didn’t take my own pictures, but before I knew it , all that was left was wrappers & Smiling  chocolate  gorged faces

Mingles & Jingles bag – Hotel Chocolat………yes please

Mingles and Jingles Bag

When I was asked to review for  Hotel Chocolat, I thought it would be a tiny box of  typically sickly Christmas chocolates , with fillings that I wouldn’t like. But i thought that i would give it a go any way as I know a lot of people who like chocolate and I knew I could get rid of these choccies at least 1 at a time.

How wrong was I , I was fortunate enough to get these sent to work and as its Christmas, when I  opened them and  saw how many there  were, i was able to share some around with  the people I work with. I asked for ” feedback ” and surprise surprise every one liked them.   especially when i offered  another one  later on.

These can be bought from http://www.hotelchocolat.com/uk/shop/christmas/mingles-and-jingles-bag

Any way , the  Chocolates are really  nice, with a very luxurious taste . my personal  favourites are the white Christmas bell. Although that not to say that the others  aren’t almost  as nice ( only my preference )

The Chocolates come individually wrapped and sealed. There will be many re – uses  for the nice bag that they come in as its good Quality. And I especially liked the idea of the little card in a very luxurious  envelope telling you who the chocolates had come from .

I was sent  this Bag of chocolates to review and  there was no charge to me, But would i buy them my self,….. I think i probably  would cos they really are that nice and that Little Bit Special, Well Packed, NON broken ( so far )

Image What  a nice quality Bag they were delivered in, well packed. it’s just a shame that once we realised how nice they  were, the bag soon emptied

Beautifully wrapped individual packets

All in all a great bag  to sit and nibble at  with  a loved one

Thank you Hotel Chocolat, your chocolates Definitely do the pictures Justice
