I am the first to admit that I am a complete and utter chocoholic! So when the famous chocolatiers, Charbonnel et Walker asked me if I would like to review some of their Easter goodies I couldn't have been more excited and the delivery certainly didn't disappoint.
It was without a doubt the most beautifully packaged Easter egg I have ever seen, from the gorgeous box to the sumptuous ribbon. It is pure luxury.
I was sent the milk chocolate egg with sea salt caramel truffles* (R.R.P £20), the egg itself was thick and luxurious and the truffles, oh the truffles! I'm a sucker for salted caramel but these are something else.
Dusted in icing sugar and filled with the most amazing, moreish, salted caramel. One of the best things I have ever eaten. Fact.
Obviously my little sidekick was sent some treats too. Ava was sent the Peter Rabbit twelve piece mini chocolate bar square * (R.R.P £11.95)
It is packaged in beautifully illustrated Peter Rabbit paper but I have to say I was slightly underwhelmed by the chocolate itself. I didn't find it as thick and creamy as my egg but Ava didn't seem to notice at all. She said it was "yummy".
If you find yourself in the London area on Saturday 28th March head to Selfridges on Oxford Street from 1-5pm (toy level), your child will be able to meet Peter Rabbit and listen to one of the greatest children's stories ever written.
Charbonnel et Walker are also holding an Easter egg hunt where you could win a beautiful Peter Rabbit Gift Hamper or a Pink Champagne Celebration Hamper. Hop to the Charbonnel et Walker store at Cabot Place, Canary Wharf, between Saturday 21st March & Wednesday 1st April and collect a quiz card to enter. Find the hidden Easter egg in each of the participating retailers and discover a question attached. Choose your answer from those listed on the quiz and return to the Charbonnel et Walker store.
If you want to put a smile on someone's face this Easter and treat them to a little piece of luxury why not take a browse on the Charbonnel et Walker website, www.charbonnel.co.uk. I for one think the Sea Salted Caramel Truffles would go down a treat!
