Chocolate taster boxes
Hmm, I was at a BBQ today and one of the guests brought along a Hotel Chocolat taster box. Though it’s quite a large taster box, I was very good and only had two (was trying to be polite, and share with the other guests, though there were still quite a few chocolates in the box when I left!). I think I was the only guest who requested to look at the guide to what they were (wanted to make an informed decision!). I had a blueberry bombe (in white chocolate) and a cherry something-or-other. Well, they are no L’Artisan or La Maison… but not bad chocolates. I have had them before and found the quality of the box to be somewhat mixed… It is fun I guess, trying a new mix every month.
Chocolate lights me up. I love it. I'm sure it all started with my mum eating loads of Mars Bars when she was pregnant with me, but I inherited my dad's love for the dark stuff. Chocolate makes me happy. I live, eat and breathe chocolate and especially love sharing chocolate discoveries with people. I live in London, which I love, especially for the amazing chocolate sold here. I write about my encounters with chocolate here, but I also show people to the best chocolate in London on the Chocolate Ecstasy Tours.
