Fancy getting your hands on a free mini chocolate egg and meeting the Easter Bunny at a Hotel Chocolat store this month? You’re in the right place…
Until Sunday 27 March, there will be free individual ‘egglets’ (little chocolate eggs) up for grabs at several Hotel Chocolat stores around the country. Not only that, you can also pose for a selfie with the company’s mascot Beau Bunny.
Here’s where and when you can get the free chocolate:
|Wed 16 Mar||Canary Wharf, Manchester (Arndale) & Southampton|
|Thu 17 Mar||St Albans, Manchester (Piccadilly) & Cardiff|
|Fri 18 Mar||Regent Street, Manchester (Market Street) & Cardiff|
|Sat 19 Mar||Bromley, Norwich & Guildford|
|Sun 20 Mar||Bromley, Norwich & Reading|
|Wed 23 Mar||Cambridge, York & Bluewater|
|Thu 24 Mar||Cheltenham, Harrogate & Bluewater|
|Fri 25 Mar||TBC|
|Sat 26 Mar||Milton Keynes, Nottingham & Cambridge|
|Sun 27 Mar||Leeds (Roast & Conch)|
What do you get?
We asked Hotel Chocolat to spill the beans (or eggs), but sadly it refused to cooperate. Luckily, at MSE, we’re committed to researching deals thoroughly – especially where free chocolate’s involved.
At the Covent Garden store (the closest to MSE Towers), we received a praline egglet, which normally come in bags of eight for £5.50. A rough conversion tells us a single 11g egg’s worth approximately 70p. Might not sound like much but if you are in the neighbourhood, it can’t hurt.
We can’t say for sure what time you’ll need to be at each store, but the staff at the Covent Garden store told us they’d be dishing out freebies until 4pm. Don’t make a special trip unless you’ve checked in advance as they may not be available all day long.
