Well, it would be if the weather perked up a little. However I did receive a little sunshine in the post which I will share with you in pictures to whet your appetite.
Yes, as you may have guessed Hotel Chocolat have been lighting up my life again (uh huh, today I will only speak in song titles and cliché). This time they sent me a Summer Goody Bag and boy was it goody!
Neapolitan Choc 6, White Chocolate Smiley Lolly, Raspberry Riot 100g slab, Caramel drops sachet and Salted Caramels. Sounds good doesn't it? It was all very tasty!
I was really bad actually, I refused to share the Raspberry Riot Slab and as I expected it was heavenly. I am going to have to see if they sell that individually, it was amazing!
The Salted Caramels were good, although caramels are not my first choice and the salt was subtle in them, in fact I think they could have gotten away with a little more.
The Neapolitan Chocolates had a milk chocolate exterior followed by a layer of white chocolate and then a fruity cream centre. They were really good, but then I am a bit of a sucker for fruit creams.
The Caramel Drops lived up to my expectations after my last try of their caramel chocolate, they just have such a good flavour. I have managed to save most of the bag to use in some baking (scratch that, I just looked in the bag and there are hardly any left, I think someone may have been nibbling) and well, the White Chocolate Smiley Lolly, it just makes you smile!
Imagine receiving this pack as a gift! Actually Hotel Chocolat have a great selection of chocolate to give as Birthday Gifts. I keep hinting to Graham, but so far it is just Hotel Chocolat that send me these yummy chocolates. Oh well, I live in hope!
