WIN a Luxury Hotel Chocolat 'Truffles To Share' Advent Calendar

Last week I was sent this A-mazing Hotel Chocolat Truffles to Share Advent Calendar to review. I know - I have the worst job don't I?! Obviously the arrival of said advent calendar left me in a bit of a quandary, you see I've always been told from a very early age that you must NEVER open door number '1' until the 1st December. But this is a review - what's a girl to do? Obviously I waited patiently for a good few hours but December never came. This meant that I had to crack the calendar open 2 weeks early - poor me : (

Here's how Hotel Chocolat describe the calendar:

With two luscious truffles behind each window, there’ll be no bickering, just harmonious sharing and a blissful run up to Christmas.

Hmmmm... a blissful run up to Christmas? I'm not quite sure we'll manage that even with this lovely calendar! Anyway, so as they said, each calendar door has 2 truffles behind it. This is perfect for our house as Chris and I always 'share' an advent calendar and he usually gets slightly peeved when I eat 99% of the chocolates. Truffles to Share means that we both get a truffle each this Christmas... ok well it doesn't because I have ate 'my' truffle from the first 6 windows - just to taste all the different flavours!

The 6 flavours are:

Gingerbread Truffle - yum!
Salted Soft Caramel - my favourite of them all!
Mulled Wine - *hic*
Cinnamon Praline - not to my taste *runs off to swap all the cinnamon ones with Chris delicious caramel ones*
Milk Praline - delicious! 
Simple Dark Truffle - scrumptious!

It really is THE greatest advent calendar I have ever had the pleasure to gorge on *wipes chocolate from mouth* and guess what - now it's time for you to get your hands on one too!

  1. Sadly, I'll mostly be spending Christmas eve in the car. But it'll be worth it to wake up with the family on Christmas morning. :)

  2. I will be celebrating the afternoon with family, my sister is hosting a drop in so we can all exchange gifts leaving Christmas Day just for us and our children. This year is also very special as nanny and uncle Jon live over 150 miles away and will be arriving late on the night to watch the children open their presents christmas morning. Awesome stuff. :)
