Here at the Hamper HQ we have the horrendously laborious (!) task of tasting and judging all our luxury food items before deciding on which products win a well-deserved place in our beautiful British hampers. As we test all our products, we already know the quality is superb and the taste is exceptional, however we can’t help having our favourites! For me, nothing even comes close to trumping chocolate, so I decided to whittle down our extensive selection of chocolate treats to just 3 faultless items that would make a delicious Christmas gift. I, of course had to re-test all our chocolate products to find the true winner – it’s been a pretty good afternoon!
Appearance alone meant that Choc on Choc’s handmade Chocolate Santa Bar made the cut for the top three – this one really raises the bar for festive treats. It’s a deliciously creamy, smooth slab of milk and white Belgian chocolate and the very detailed chocolate Santa will appeal to all Christmas fanatics, young or old. This beautiful, festive bar can be found in 13 of our hampers and as a bonus, it’s gluten free!
In second place, we have Monty Bojangles Choccy Scoffy Truffles, even the name tantalises the taste buds! These are incredibly smooth with a wonderful and intense bitter sweet flavour. They truly do melt in the mouth. It is no surprise that these Choccy Scoffy truffles have won the ‘Great Taste Award’ three years in a row! The fact that these chocolates are placed in 20 of our luxury gift hampers prove it is a top three choice. In Monty’s own words they are ‘scrumptiously scoffable’ and I certainly agree.
Finally, in first place, we have the well deserving winner - with two Royal Warrants - Prestat’s Milk Chocolate Marc de Champagne Truffles. These beautiful, champagne infused, silky truffles are ridiculously divine. With their crunchy yet velvety, icing dusted shell and perfect ganache centre, it’s clear to see why they are Prestat’s bestselling truffle of all time. Sealed in a beautiful, elegant box they really are the most special chocolates to send over Christmas, just be sure to reveal them after all the children have gone to bed! These truffles feature in a few of our top luxury hampers - Day at the Races, Fine Wine & Luxury Chocolate Hamper and The Dom Perignon Hamper. It definitely wasn’t too much truffle to name these the winners…
