Terry’s Chocolate Orange Mini Eggs

There hasn’t been this much excitement since the Chocolate Orange Twirl (review here if you missed it). It has even been a mission to find these Terry’s Chocolate Orange Mini Eggs. Not as extensive but still these have been flying off the shelves, and rightly so!  Now I know some may recoil at the very thought of Easter Chocolate in January, and I would include myself in that camp. However when Terry’s Chocolate Orange in mini egg form is on the cards, well frankly all feelings are put aside.  Presently these are exclusives at Tesco. It is unknown if they will…

Hotel Chocolat Cinnamon Buns Selector

It’s snowing Christmas in Hotel Chocolat. Amongst the chocolate boxes, hampers, jolly penguins and snowmen, there’s also the Hotel Chocolat Cinnamon Buns Selector. This isn’t actually a newbie, but is one that has been around before, and is back once more.  Last year I tried the Treacle Tart Selectors, which were nice but dubious you could actually tell what they were in a blind taste test. This year I am hoping the Cinnamon Bun can do a little better.  If you aren’t familiar the Selector’s come in at £3.95 a pop or 3 for £10. They are suitable for vegetarians…

Hotel Chocolat Caramalised Banana Selector

Perfecting a banana flavour isn’t the easiest of things and Hotel Chocolate have had a pretty good go at achieving banana-esque chocolates. There’s been the delicious Banana Bread and not to mention the Banoffee Pie (review here). However can these Hotel Chocolat Caramalised Banana selectors make it 3 in a row?  With a trio of ‘lavish textures’ this selector boasts layers of caramel, banana white ganache and while almond praline, all encased in 40% milk chocolate and decorated with dark chocolate.  As ever the selectors are £3.95 a pop or  3 for £10. There is such a variety that the…

Mr Kipling Chocolate Orange Whirls

It seems that Chocolate Orange is the flavour to be had! We have had the yummy Chocolate Orange Twirls, The Cadbury Orange Mousse Snowman and Hotel Chocolat Orange Chocolate Wafers to name a few. Now it is the turn for these Mr Kipling Chocolate Orange Whirls. These were in Tesco and on offer for £1.00. As always there are six in a box which sit in a plastic tray (tut tut). Upon opening the whirls were a wee bit mismatch, with most of the filling splodged out of one side.  The Mr Kipling Chocolate Orange Whirls sit amongst Iced Top…
