I love monthly subscription boxes. It’s like giving yourself a present every month. You never know what you are going to get with each box. So when I saw that Hotel Chocolat did a monthly subscription box you can imagine my excitement. I mean a monthly subscription box of chocolate? What girl wouldn’t like that?
With the subscription box you have so much choice! You can choose how often you want to receive. The options go from weekly to every 12 weeks. They also offer different types of boxes. So if you don’t like nuts or alcohol you can opt to have a box that doesn’t contain nuts or alcohol. If you love dark chocolate then they have a box with nothing but dark chocolate. And if you like a little bit of everything they have a box for that too.
I started off with the ‘Everything M’ box on a weekly subscription which came with 4 different chocolates to try. Which you got two chocolates per flavour. I didn’t want to commit to a big box straight away.
Overall the whole ordering process was pretty easy. There were only two things that actually I would want to have changed. The first being that you don’t actually pay for the box until it’s arrived. I personally would have preferred payment when I placed the order because I’m the type of person that gets really nervous that I didn’t place the order. Second being that you didn’t receive any dispatch email letting you know your box is on its way. Which just would have been nice to know when it was coming.
Now let’s get onto the chocolates? I’m going to start with my least favourite first and finish with my favourite.
The Florentine Isabelle contained almonds which I absolutely can’t stand but I gave it a go anyway. I didn’t hate it but I just felt that there wasn’t anything that made it stand out to me. For this chocolate I have given it one star out of five,
The Caramel Cheesecake was really nice but if anything just a little bit to sweet. So I dont think it is the type or chocolate you could eat a whole box in one go. One at a time is really enough. I think that this chocolate would be a perfect gift for a dinner party.
PINK CHAMPAGNE TRUFFLE
The Pink Champagne Truffle is very close second place. With a hard outter shell and a creamy centre this really was a luxcurious chocolate. There was a hint of strawberry which only added to the flavour. This truffle is the perfect gift for every chocolate and champagne lover.
With every box you can choose a ‘superstar’ chocolate. Dizzy Praline is my superstar of the box. I love praline chocolate. This chocolate is my favourite by far. It tasted very similar to the green triangle chocolate from quality street but so much better, so much more creamier.
I can’t wait to get my next box 💕 would you like to read more chocolate related posts?
