Hotel Chocolat Rhubarb and Custard

Rhubarb and Custard a classic British flavour and dessert, and defiantly firm on my favourites list. Whilst perusing the Hotel Chocolat Selectors I came across this one as well as the rather lack lustre Peanut Butter one, which I reviewed here in case you missed it. Rather than debating between the two I did what anyone else would and bought both!

Hurrah!  These selector packs offer 6 chocolates for £3.75, and are all of a perfect size.
