Thanks to Luxuria Lifestyle (Facebook @LuxuriaLifestyle Twitter @LuxuriaLife Instagram @LuxuriaLifestyle) and Coco Chocolatier (Facebook @CocoChocolatierUK Instagram @CocoChocolatier Twitter @CocoChocolateUK) ) I was kindly gifted 6 delicious, stylish bars of luxury milk, white and dark chocolate which were full of sensational flavours! I don’t usually tend to go for dark chocolate however Coco Chocolatier have converted me!
The Unique Flavours of Coco Chocolatier:
Artisan Roast Expresso – dark and rich in flavour with a hint of coffee, the perfect combination for any coffee/chocolate lover! (Gluten free and suitable for vegans)Caramel, Hazelnuts & Isle of Skye Sea Salt – silky smooth, caramel flavoured, milk chocolate. Pleasantly salty, this was my favourite out of all 6 (Gluten free)Raspberry & Vanilla Bean – a pretty, pink, white bar of chocolate with a sweet burst of raspberry (Gluten free)Hazelnut & Isle of Skye Sea Salt – richer taste than the caramel version (Gluten free)Gin & Tonic – a strong, dark flavour, it tasted slightly of lime (Gluten free and suitable for vegans)Earl Grey Tea & Bergamot – fragrant hint of tea and gentle citrus taste (I would be lying if I said I didn’t have to google what Bergamot is…what can I say, you learn something new every day! (Gluten free and suitable for vegans)

The bars were packaged in a classy, cute sliding style box and they were wrapped in the most beautiful artistic paper! You could tell that the paper was high quality which made me even more excited to taste the chocolate! My favourite design was the Gin & Tonic, I loved the splash of colour, I also loved the floral design and the multi-coloured paper as it reminded me of Elmer the Elephant and brought back a flood of childhood memories!
They would make the perfect gift and come in a wide range of different options.
