I fell off the dieting wagon this morning though in spectacular fashion and enjoyed a bit of Hotel Chocolat for breakfast. And why the bloody hell not? The Goodie Bag, part of their extensive Christmas gifts range, includes six Billionaire Shortbread chocolates, a Christmas Gift Slab with milk chocolate and dark cookie pieces, a milk chocolate Pocket Reindeer and a Mini Festive Wreath. The latter was my favourite.. Milk and dark chocolate with cranberries, hazelnuts and biscuit. Very Christmassy and very, very lovely. Breakfasts should include Hotel Chocolat more often.
You can buy the Christmas Goodie Bag for £17 online or in any of their shops. For north eastern readers, pop into Metro Centre or Newcastle. The shops are modern, sophisticated, yet fun, and definitely fill a gap in the market. Where else can you buy great quality chocolate on the average Great British high street? Hotel Chocolat are also the only British chocolatier to have their own cocoa plantation. They mean business. There's no doubting that Hotel Chocolat ain't cheap, and will be wasted on certain people. Don't waste your money if the recipient is more of a £2.99 selection box sort of person. But for the more discerning chocolate lover, the Goodie Bag makes a lovely present.
And thanks to Hotel Chocolat, I have one of these Christmas Goodie Bags to give away to one reader.
