Harry Hopalot 1.1kg Chocolate Bunny from Thorntons [EDITED]
It’s absolutely impossible not to be impressed by this piece of chocolate magnificence. While husband tried to prevent me from breaking in to it, I pointed out that this was not a gift but, in fact, a review bunny and if I wanted to gnaw his face off, nibble his ears or bite his fluffy tail, it was my right as the blogger writing the review to do so.
Husband was not amused.
I think he kind of reverted to childhood when he saw the bunny and his only child nature kicked in. “MINE” he proclaimed.
“No so”, countered I. “For you have already claimed the 1.4kg Ultimate egg from Fortnum’s and you cannot claim two things. You must forfeit one.” I said. I knew I had to review it and I was super keen to show you, dear readers, how marvellously thick the chocolate rabbit was. Well worth buying for a family.
“Unfair!” he countered. “However as such, however, I claim it in the name of the committee.”
This was a conundrum. As Head of Comms for the potentially successful bid to host the 2015 Eastercon UK Annual Easter SFF convention, I knew a giant 1.1kg bunny at our bid party, or even our bid, could guarantee us the win. Still, I had to stand firm and not disappoint you, dear readers (or Thorntons).
“No,” he said, “the Hotel Chocolat bunny is tasty but not large. This is going to be both tasty and large. I must claim it for the convention” he said.
“I must review it” I said “It was not a gift and the expectation is that I’ll review it” I was getting worried now and I was running out of options. I already knew that the chocolate would be the same silky milk chocolate of the large magnificent egg from last year. This was supposed to be for the office to glory in. I knew it was going to be not too sweet, smoothly milky and yummy. Just like their other milk chocolate Easter creations, this was going to be well balanced and delicious. If he realised that, I was doomed.
“It’s their standard milk chocolate” he countered and I knew I was doomed. “You know what it tastes like. Keep the bunny whole for the convention. It’ll be impressively awesome and we’ll be sure to win”
So there you have it dear readers. I have been forced to look at this bunny for a week. To stare at its magnificent silky exterior and desire it’s cutely delicious ears. It has remained intact – all 1.1kg of it. I’ve mentioned it before in the reviews but I have yet to try it.
Pity me, dear readers, but cross your fingers for me as well for the magic of the Thornton’s bunny will be brought to bear on Sunday at 10:30am in the bid session in Glasgow. Please trust me when I say, I know the quality of this bunny and it is delicious. Not too sweet, a balanced milk chocolate that can be quite moreish. Is you like Thornton’s milk chocolate, you’re going to love this (for a long time – it is 1.1kgs of milk chocolate after all!)
