Hotel Chocolate Double Giveaway


If you are pleased by the thought of winning two scrumptious eggs from Hotel Chocolat, then you are going to be absolutely delighted when I tell you there are actually three luxury prizes to be won. One lucky winner will win two eggs here on Tinned Tomatoes and there is also the chance to win a Kids Easter Bunny Basket over at  Little Tums.

So which eggs did I choose?




Hotel Chocolate have an irresistible collection of Easter Eggs and Easter Gifts to choose from, so it wasn't easy to pick two, but I have to admit it was fun looking through their collection to see what I would like to try.

The first egg was the White Cow Beastie Easter Egg. Well I had to, didn't I ? What a fabulous name for an egg.

It is a thick white chocolate egg, printed with a cow transfer made of all-natural cocoa butter and accompanied by 6 praline and caramel-filled mini eggs. 

The white chocolate egg was divine. We all really enjoyed it. Good quality white chocolate, without that sickly sweet flavour of cheaper white chocolate. The praline mini-eggs I couldn't get excited about, but that is more about me. I am not all that keen on praline. I would eat it at a push, but would prefer to share it.


The second egg is the Raspberry Eton Mess Easter Egg Sandwich.

WARNING: Prepare for gush!

Wowee!!!! This is the best Easter Egg I have ever eaten in my whole life! 

Hotel Chocolat have surpassed themselves with this egg.  Irresistible slabs of raspberry and white chocolate, sprinkled with crispy meringue and raspberry pieces, sandwiched between creamy white chocolate egg shells.

In my opinion,  this is what Hotel Chocolat do best. Flavoured chocolates. Their white, caramel and fruit chocolate are without a doubt the best chocolate I have ever had the pleasure to eat. I just have to have a word with them now and ask them to do a Giant Ostrich Egg  in fruit chocolate next year. 

I also have a small confession to make. I didn't let Graham and Cooper have any of this egg. In fact I may have been rather fierce when I said it was out of bounds. 

I wasn't a completely horrible wife and mother. Graham did enjoy the beastie egg and pralines and Cooper got this fabulous Kids Easter Basket which he is still enjoying. I don't believe in giving him too much chocolate, so this one is going to last a while.



If you would like to be in with a chance of winning two Hotel Chocolat Easter Eggs and an Easter Gift, then all you need to do is leave a comment here and leave a comment over at Little Tums. It's as easy as that. If you don't have a blog, then remember to leave your email address so I can contact you if you win.
