My nephew loves hot chocolate and since, as his aunt, I wanted to spoil him while he was visiting for a few days, we had to go somewhere special for a drink – he wanted hot chocolate and I decided to indulge myself too.
Hotel Chocolat is a luxury chocolate retailer whose business is built on ethically responsible practices. I am biased because I do love their chocolate and allow myself a few indulgences – especially their pink champagne truffles. However, I digress …
We visited the Hotel Chocolat Cafe on Buchanan Street in Glasgow. I had recommended their black forest gateau hot chocolate – its my favourite. At home I just have the hot chocolate but in the shop they asked if we wanted whipped cream – well it wasn’t just any ordinary whipped cream – chocolate flavoured cream decorated with crispy chocolate balls and a long triangle of chocolate.
As if the quality of the products isn’t enough, I was really pleased and surprised by the customer service – going that extra mile. Before making up our drinks, our server wanted to check there were tables available for us – so space confirmed, the drinks were prepared and all that was left was for us to savour the flavour.
I was in heaven – I am even thinking about it. If you’re able, I would definitely recommend a visit to a Hotel Chocolat Cafe.
Thank you to Blame it on the art for the prompt in their post about their own hot chocolate experience – you can read about that on their blog.
Thank you for reading. I’d love for you to share your favourite hot (chocolate) drink with me in the comments section.
