HC Lemon Meringue Pie

HC Lemon Meringue Pie

Posted 2013-09-02 by Bastion Harrisonfollow


For true chocoholics, you have to try Hotel Chocolat's whopping 500g slab range. It may be inches thick, but still proves easy to break apart and share (or greedily horde for yourself). Because it is so thick, it has a slow melt, making the joyous experience last even longer.

This particular slab is called Lemon Meringue Pie, and is part of the their summer chocolate range. It is a mix of milk and white chocolate, with the white chocolate being infused with the sharp flavours of lemon. Although it does not have popping candy, when the zingy lemon combines with the crispy meringue pieces, it produces a similar effect.



There is an additional surprise that I was not expecting, when I bit into the chocolate, and that is the addition of shortbread biscuit pieces. It complimented the other flavours and textures brilliantly, but did not really fit the 'lemon meringue pie' brief. That would be my one criticism would be that; it does not remind me of a lemon meringue pie. I think that is only the due to the format in which it is presented. It is a solid thick slab of chocolate, while a meringue pie has a light, fluffy texture. If they wanted to remind you of lemon meringue pie, then maybe it should have been a mousse truffle rather than a slab. But then of course, I wouldn't want this slab to change in any way. Perhaps just take 'pie' out of the name.
