How it Works
Hotel Chocolat will send you a selection of delicious chocolates through the post each month featuring their latest and innovative recipes that are sure to send your sweet tooth into overdrive.
You can try your first box for the fantastic price of just £9.95, with 5 selections for you to choose from: Classic, High Cocoa, Mellow, Fortified and Rare & Vintage.
Whether you prefer sweet milk chocolate, the deep and intense flavours of dark chocolate or want an alcoholic treat, each box features a variety of recipes that are sure to please. We tried out the Classic Box which gave us a nice balance of milk, white and dark chocolate.
The Peanut Praline was a particular favourite of ours, a delicious mix of peanut butter, chocolate and a pinch of sea salt. Other chocolates that got our thumbs up were the Champagne Truffle, the Apple Strudel and the Tahini Baton which had milk chocolate combined with toasted organic sesame.
While most of the chocolates included in the selection were great, we weren’t a fan of the fruity ones, especially the Grapefruit Truffle. The mix of white chocolate, pressed grapefruit and cream just didn’t sit well with us.
In addition to receiving a box of chocolates through the post each month, there are a number of other exclusive perks to benefit from when you join the Tasting Club. You’ll be entitled to members only discounts, preview offers and special edition selections. Not to mention 5% off everything at Hotel Chocolat.
Another feature we liked of being a member was that with each box there is a card that allows you to give each selection a score and note down what you thought of them. Hotel Chocolat allows you to become a part of their ‘chocolate democracy’ as they put it and will take this feedback on board which they’ll then use to shape future recipes and selections.
