Hotel Chocolat

{The Chocolate Tasting Club}

I would recommend reading this post only if you’re not suffering from hunger!

I don’t eat much chocolate and not too often. It is too sweet for me and I can only handle 2 or 3 pieces at once. But when I eat chocolate, I make sure it’s the finest!

One of the best discoveries I made when Westfield was opened in East London was Hotel Chocolat. When you walk in their store, you’ll be treated with a complimentary chocolate of the day and will have a guided tour through their display shelves. I loved the chocolates from first sight and I didn’t waste much time to became a member of the Chocolate Tasting Club.

I just received that special box which I’ve been waiting for the whole year. In the Excellence Collection you’ll find the chocolates which have been rated the highest through all the monthly chocolate tastings. You’ve got tasting notes and can leave your scores for each of the finest pieces of art.

The Fortified Collection is another favourite box of mine. If I skip the regular box, I’m certainly having this one which comes out every 3 months. The mixture between a fine liqueur and flavoured chocolate variations made by Hotel Chocolate is unbelievably good.

If you ever have the chance to get into one of their stores, don’t miss it. The taste and quality are the 2 main reasons why this is my most favourite chocolate!

There are also a great company which support local farmers in Ghana who produce the finest ingredients for the chocolate. There is such a vast variety of amazing boxes, chocolate bars and different seasonal treats which are available for non-club members. If you’re a member though, you get the chance to try the best!
