A week today will be Christmas Day! A time for enjoying with family/friends, eating lots of good food and kicking back and relaxing! Safe to say I can't wait! If you're still on the hunt for presents for people do not fear you still have more than enough time to get everything you need - especially some delicious chocolate treats!
Today I bring you another review from HoD's Christmas range; their chocolate shaped Christmas Tree - if you shop in Tesco's you may have see the version that HoD produce for them under their "Chok-a-blok" range, but this is under their own brand name. Firstly I must point out how beautiful this looks; cast in 30% milk chocolate adorned with mini malt balls, chocolate stars, swirls of white chocolate and a beautiful looking gold glitter it looks every bit the ideal festive treat.
I love how compared to the likes of some of the commercial chocolates you may get around Christmas that this is a higher cocoa percentage a 30% milk but is still deliciously creamy/sweet and will certainly tick all the boxes for the majority of the population looking to tuck into a sweet treat around Christmas.
The milk chocolate is thick and perfect for dipping into a warm soothing drink; yet it is still easy to snap a piece off without having to wrestle with the knife and chopping board! The mini malt balls add a nice crunchy texture contrast when you come across one and it is quite tempting to pick them off the chocolate tree to snack on now and then!
A gift perfect for both kids and adults alike I'm sure anyone would be pleased to find this under the Christmas tree a week today!
Taste - 7.3/10 - Creamy, sweet, milk chocolate - will definitely hit the spot!
Texture - 8/10 - Smooth, thick and with nice crunchy malt balls to add a bit of contrast.
Appearance - 8.5/10- Looks absolutely beautiful - so festive!
Price - 8.2/10 - For £4.99 I think this is really good value!
Overall - 8/10 - A wonderful Christmas addition to HoD!
WHO FOR?This is pretty much suitable for anyone that likes chocolate and being only priced at £4.99 it's not going to break the bank.
WHERE TO BUY?You can buy HoD from all major department stores or online here.
