Hotel Chocolate Giant Christmas Cracker – Giveaway #18
Well, how fantastic is a giant Christmas cracker stuffed full of Christmas cheer from Hotel Chocolat? I’d say fantastic indeed and I am really looking forward to cracking it open on Christmas Day this year. I shall be ensconced at the ancestral pile with the extended family and this super sized 64 cm long cracker will certainly come in handy. Last year the mini crackers went down well, but I think this is likely to really wow the gathered clan.
The cracker has the cool mid-winter colours of silver and white but with icy blue highlights. It captures the season well and depicts a wintery scene with spare drawings of trees and deer. The sparsity of the outside belies the abundance within, it is packed to the gunwales with chocolates – 40 to be precise. The chocolate in come 22 individual white and silver wrapped packages. Everyone should find something they like as there are various types and flavours, including dark, milk and white; the identity of each is thoughtfully provided on the wrappers. The flavours of Christmas are well represented, including: Christmas Mess, Gianduja & Clementine, Gingerbread Truffle, Mulled Wine Truffles, Champagne Truffles and even a Pink Champagne Truffle. I was pleased to discover my favourite Sea Salt & Caramel, but as there is only one I might have to:
- Hide it
- Eat it now
- Get first dibs on the day
- Engage in some wrapper swapping
- Relax, be generous, it’s Christmas
The cracker, which retails at £38, also comes with 12 silver hats and a silver envelope containing jokes which apparently “may not contain humour”. Some traditions will never die, no matter how much we wish them to. It comes in a sturdy box with a carry handle, useful should you need to accompany Good King Wenceslas through the snow; knowing our luck, it won’t be deep and crisp and even.
