“Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you might get!”
These words by Tom Hanks’ character Forrest Gump branded my brain intensely. It made me sit up and look deeper into my life.
You see I am the kind of girl who likes to know what she’s getting. In terms of chocolate boxes – it would be, me reading through the selection of what is in each truffle, praline and chocolate before trying it out.
Where is my adventurous spirit you ask? Oh I have a very adventurous spirit. But I am also a die hard foodie. I get enormous pleasure of first reading about the fine ingredients in a chocolate to whet my appetite then taking a first bite to see if what was promised is in actual fact delivered.
So for me, while life certainly is like a box of chocolates – I just like knowing what I am getting.
When I got an email from Anurag at Hotel Chocolat asking me if I would like a selection of their fine chocolates, I thought “Well who says no to that question?”
Anurag asked me to take my pick from their extensive chocolate line and trust me it was letting a chocolate addict loose in a candy store – I mean, literally! They have chocolates for all kinds of occasions and this was becoming more difficult than I expected.
In the end I asked myself “What kind of chocolate girl am I?” Milk, dark or white? The answer was easy! I am a dark chocolate kind of girl and was delighted to see that Hotel Chocolat actually cater to my panache for dark chocolates with their stunning Signature Dark Chocolate Collection.
Dark Liquid Caramel, Gianduja Bombe, 5-second Chilli, Single Malt Smoothie, 65% Dark Intense Praline, Pistachio-Pistachio are just some of the ultimate chocolate varieties this selection offers.
With my feet up on the sofa I discovered each silky smooth praline – a dash of chilli, a mellow melt-away caramel, a smoky note of single malt whisky, a nutty pistachio or a praline filled cup topped with honey and almond florentine.
Well this was certainly something I needed to share and quickly wrote to Anurag asking him if he would be so kind to provide another box of the exquisite dark chocolate selection.
No! Not for me! For you!
As I, along with several Indians around the globe, are celebrating Diwali today I thought I would treat you to a special event. Hotel Chocolat has been kind enough to supply one lucky What’s For Lunch, Honey? reader with a box of the sensational Signature Dark Chocolate Selection I had.
Maybe as a Christmas present for someone special?
