A while ago, a parcel popped through the letter box with a big bang. As soon as it hit the floor, Amy ran into the hallway to pick it up. She always gets excited when parcels arrive, so we quickly opened it to find the cutest little box of Chocolate Gingerbread Men from Hotel Chocolat. Unfortunately, the majority of gingerbread men had broken legs or were snapped in half, so we decided to show them to you whilst they’re taking a walk through their very own winter wonderland. Aren’t they adorable?
As I am a massive Hotel Chocolat fan, their cuteness factor didn’t really save them, but then again, I had to sacrifice myself in the name of blogging and test them either way. So here’s my verdict:
Hotel Chocolat’s Gingerbread Men are made from succulent milk chocolate with a subtle hint of gingerbread spice that beautifully combines the traditional Christmas flavours nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger. The gingerbread men are beautifully decorated with dark and coloured chocolate and come in a cute little box that is the perfect size for a Christmas stocking, making them a much-loved stocking filler for chocolate lovers and children. With £6.50 for 12 gingerbread men they are a little more expensive than your average chocolate, but their outstanding quality makes them the perfect treat for Christmas. On top of that they are just absolutely adorable and look great on every Christmas table.
Disclosure: I was sent a free box of Hotel Chocolat Gingerbread Men for the purpose of this review. This however did not influence my opinion.
