{REVIEW} Happy Easter from Hotel Chocolat




A quick break from the Cakeyboi Alphabet this week, as I have something delicious to share with you.

Easter is fast approaching and if you haven’t bought your loved ones' egg yet, here is something a bit more special than the average chocolate egg on sale at the supermarket!

I was asked to review an Easter egg from the good people at Hotel Chocolat. Have you been to one of their stores before? They are exquisite and decadent. Wall to wall chocolate in every flavour and combination you could imagine.

If you don’t have a Hotel Chocolat beside you, you can also order their goods online, including their Easter range. I was sent a Salted Caramel Egg Sandwich to review and I have to say I was extremely impressed.

It was delivered when I was at work and left in a nearby hairdresser to collect (?). I was worried that it may have been left neat the dryers and melted but it was fine when I collected it. In fact there was so many packing chips around the egg, it was in no danger of harm. So no broken eggs from Hotel Chocolat.

The egg itself, is a fair size and comprises two slabs of salted caramel and milk chocolate, with chocolate chips and salted caramel pieces  and an egg shape on top of each slab. The chocolate itself was very creamy and rich. I did manage to polish one half off myself, but I broke the other slab in pieces and shared with Disneyboi and my colleagues at work. They all loved the chocolate too. And the salted caramel taste was a hit also. It is subtle, yet there is definitely a salty kick going on somewhere when you bite down.

The other variations of Egg Sandwich available are ‘Serious Dark Wrap’ and ‘Raspberry Eton Mess’. The latter sounds amazing and might just be what I order for Disneyboi’s Easter. At £8 each, the quality of the chocolate make these good value for money.



Have a look at the site, and take my word for it, you won’t be disappointed!

  1. I love their caramel chocolate. It's so, so good. I've had an eton mess slab before and it was amazing, so I would probably go for that egg.

  2. The thing I love best about their stores is that they ALWAYS have samples to taste and they bring them to you - you don't even have to go up to a counter!

  4. I've always wanted to try a hotel chocolate egg... Hoping to get one for Easter but they are quite pricey, but as you said probably worth it! I love salted Carmel and this is perfect!
