Has anyone else seen these shop? Hotel Chocolate   http://www.hotelchocolat.com/uk/chocolate-shops

I had the delight of Rocky road, a bit pricey at £3 odd but it was godo size slab.  Bigger slabs are available.

My local John Lewis sells Hotel Chocolat products. I think What's-his-name on this site is a big fan - the chap who is also Dr Who. Goodness I can't remember his name and he was such a good chocolate buddy in the old days. His real name is Andy.

I made a suggestion to them, about them getting Dark, milk and white together.

I did enjoy it, You can tell its made with better ingredients. Are there any variation anyone would suggest I try?

I haven't tried any 623. I have seen it in John Lewis, but it's out of my price range - and I am not eating chocolate at the moment as I'm dieting

Hi Lorri,

Nice to hear from you.  Sounds like these might be really scrummy chocolates then? I believe they have a high cocoa content.

Hi Old spice, hope you are well  :).  From memory, the milk is 40% and the white around 35%, I like dark so tend to buy that, which is 70% . I also have the fortified collection delivered every 2-3 months (takes me that long to eat them lol) they are very very strong, but yummy . Strangely my Hubby, who is the much bigger chocolate eater out of the two of us, does not like Hotel Chocolate products at all, so sadly I have to eat it all myself  :D lol
