... compared to stuff i've had from Belgium for cheaper.
I recently bought 2 boxes of chocolates for £25 from a deal here, reduced with 50% off. While they were not bad (a step above Thorntons and M&S chocs I also had), I wasnt really impressed with their claims or other peoples claims about their taste. Maybe it was the Christmas collection ?
Anyway the various makes of belge chocolates I have had from different cities and makers surpasses anything from Hotel Chocolat, and they have been far cheaper. Some of my chocolates was misshaped also, or totally missing and replaced with an alternative.
Next time i'll just find a supplier that will ship to me and pay the extra postage, gonna be better than the overrated Hotel Chocolate. If I woulda paid £25 for a box of these chocs I would feel a bit miffed.
