Hotel Chocolat Easter pick me up review

Everybody that knows me well and regular readers to my blog all know I love chocolate! Hotel chocolat though, is in a league of its own. Its quite frankly Divine and never disappoints.

With Easter fast approaching there are Easter eggs and gifts everywhere, Hotel Chocolat has lots of new Easter Gifts available. I chose the Easter Pick me up selection, simply because they are great for sharing.

The first thing you notice when your chocolates arrive, is luxury. They are well packaged in a box then they are tucked inside a thick Hotel chocolat bag, presented beautifully with a ribbon and a little card.

The Pick me up Easter selection contains  6 White Praline Bunnies, 6 Salted Caramel Egglets, 4 Raspberry Zinger Egglets. Unfortunately they didn't sit in the bag as displayed on the website, so you can't see the gold eggs in there.

They are all individually packed so you don't have to eat them all at once... if you can resist them. 
 As usual they were all gorgeous. I quite liked this pack because the three different chocolates were so different. 
The gold coloured egg had a soft, tasty caramel inside. It was a nice touch that they were individually wrapped.
The white bunny was a praline, this was my favourite, it was so soft and delicious inside. The perfect balance between sweet and nutty, they just melted in my mouth. 
I wasn't sure about the raspberry egg, I just think pink chocolate doesn't look right! Then I tried it... it surprised me, the soft raspberry centre was such a strong taste it was very nice, zingy and tarty.

Hotel chocolat have done it again this year in my eyes. The gifts all look fabulous and they are different to your bog standard eggs. The gifts are more expensive than you supermarket egg but the chocolate is thick, tastier and just feels really solid. I really feel you get what you pay for when it comes to hotel chocolat. These would be a great gift for a little family as an alternative to eggs for everyone.
