If you’ve feasted at Borough Market’s Rabot Estate and are looking forward to the launch of the real Hotel Chocolat in St Lucia next year, we suggest you get through the festive season with the next best thing!
Everyone knows that the calories in posh chocolate don’t officially count so make the most of the season of goodwill to indulge in some delicious treats. From the entry level Tiddly Milk Chocolate Reindeer at under a fiver; the Christmas dinner (miniature chocolate turkeys and plum puddings in case you’re wondering) to the full on £300 Ultimate Chocolate Hamper (filled with everything from rum sultanas to ginger canapés, silky truffles and bars from 65% to 100% cocoa solids) resistance is futile.
We’re loving the Rather Large Christmas Cracker ‘choc’ full of, well, chocolate plus 12 party hats, jokes and a loud bang. So long supermarket BOGOFs. Yes, even the purple ones.
