Hotel Chocolat Review {Giveaway Inside}

I LOVE chocolate and when I had the chance to review Hotel Chocolat, I just could not say "no".



Hotel Chocolat has a sparkling range of chocolates for Christmas.
I was sent this gorgeous Christmas Chocolate Goody Bag: Inside the bag were  6 Billionaire Shortbread chocolates, Christmas Gift Slab with milk chocolate and dark cookie pieces, Milk Chocolate Pocket Reindeer and a Mini Festive Wreath. The Mini Festive Wreath is perfect for Christmas with lovely berries and nuts in it.
and this Nutty Noel Pick Me Up Gift Bag which consists of  Cinnamon Almonds (these were divine!), 6 Gingerbread Truffles (great with coffee) and a Dark Chocolate Pocket Penguin (this one was especially  for my husband who loves dark chocolate). 



Oh well, all of these looked like so much, but I tell you they disappeared in a few days, as it's so difficult to resist them!
I really appreciate that Hotel Chocolat is gives importance to their cocoa suppliers in Ghana and St.Lucia. As you may know, the global chocolate industry exploits the cacao farmers. Hotel Chocolat has an engaged ethics policy which you can read about here.

BUY IT:
You can purchase Hotel Chocolat's divine Chritmas chocolates online or from a store near you. They have got gorgeous stocking fillers, advent calendars, luxurious Christmas crackers, as well as corporate gifts. And don't forget when you spend £60, they will treat you to a lovely box of Winter Treasures worth of £11.

WIN IT:
The lovely people at Hotel Chocolat kindly offered to give the above gifts to one Smiling like Sunshine reader.
How great is that!
So, one Christmas Chocolate Goody Bag (worth £17) and one Nutty Noel Pick Me Up Gift Bag (worth £12) will go to one lucky reader. All you have to do is visiting Hotel Chocolat's website and leaving a comment here telling me what your favorite Christmas product is. (mandatory entry)
