Everybody thinks that Valentine’s Day is all about those three little words… but Hotel Chocolat think that there is more than one way to tell that special somebody that you care! On Tuesday 14th February you can say it your way with solid or filled hearts, show-stopping heart-shaped boxes of chocolates, a hamper you need for a romantic night in and more. the lovely people over at Hotel Chocolat certainly know the way to my heart and they sent me the amazing Valentine Sleekster to review.
I am a big fan of the Sleekster collections from Hotel Chocolat because they are a great way to try out lots of yummy flavours in one big box. They always feel like such a treat. I have to say that I was completely smitten with this Valentine Sleekster from the minute I opened it though – a box of 27 heart-shaped chocolates. There are nine different flavours and a really good mix with white, milk and dark chocolate selections plus with three of each flavour, there is plenty to share. Well maybe this once, it is Valentine’s Day!
From Passion Fruit Cream to Buttered Rum, Salted Espresso to Raspberry Iced Tea, there really is something for everyone to enjoy. It is a really great mix of not only white, milk and dark chocolate but also fruity, nutty, caramel and boozy flavour combinations. And not only are the chocolates all heart-shaped, they also come with fun names like Bee Mine (which is a hit of honey, zing of prosecco and kiss of gin wrapped up in milk chocolate) and You Make My Heart Zing (which is a lemon zesty zing on a creamy white chocolate) I think my absolute favourite though was Illegal Gianduja which I’m guessing is ‘illegal’ because it shouldn’t be possible to make a gianduja with so much hazelnut… I’m in love!
The Valentine Sleekster costs just £22.50 and makes for a ridiculously romantic selection of chocolates. The same range of chocolate is also available as The Valentine H-box with 14 chocolates for just £12.50. You can shop the whole Hotel Chocolat Valentine’s Day range here or in store now.
