Last week we were very excited by the arrival of a review product from Hotel Chocolat. We don’t often get food goodies and this was very, very big news in the house.
We had to have an unboxing 😉
We were sent a Rather Large Cracker which had a variety of entertaining things in it; excellent quality hats for one…
And some really terrible jokes too.
Most of all though, it had little packets of extremely lovely chocolates. I hadn’t had their chops before; the girls blagged samples while in Cambridge the week before but it was new to me. Ooooh so yummy. Mulled wine chocs! Eton Mess chocs! Heaven! Champagne chocs! Delicious! And there was a penguin shaped one… We gave it to Josie. Of course.
Errr… Yes, I liked them very much. I let the children have some too. And then sent them to bed. Ahem.
This cracker is, of course, designed to be a party piece. It really does go bang (we did comedy cracker pulling) and it was the source of much merriment. It would look amazing on a big table for a family christmas and the chocolate is good enough to bring ooooh and aaaaahs. If you do big parties, I definitely recommend it 🙂

We had a lot of family fun with this. Thank you to Hotel Chocolat for the free sample and for providing a competition prize. All views are my own. I did not miscounted any chocolates and give my children less than they deserved. Definitely.
