Maybe I have a cognitive bias, as I have held shares in Fevertree for over a year now, but I like the story Hotel Chocolat are putting into their brand, and it seems similar to how FEVR have a emotive back story of where they source their product from...I should point out here, that Schweppes beat Fevertree in a blind taste tests by a panel of experts, and I really think FEVR's success is down to it's strong brand. Over on Mumsnet the general vibe is that this choc is good choc, although a few people spotted it was slick marketing. If you watch YouTube reviews on this, choc-heads love it... FEVR have 17K followers on Twitter, HOTC have over 50K. I think I might be interested in HOTC.

Hope they don't make chocolate teapots. Seems overpriced to me.

isaready - As I said before, I like the company. It ticks all the important boxes. So if the company can be more transparent and show that the related party transaction was above board and fair, then I will take a stake. With AIM companies, putting trust in the management, especially when they are new as a plc, is not a risk I want to take. Burnt my fingers too often in the past.

isaready - I'm sure you're right, but do you invest because you admire what they have done to date, or because you want to make a profit on your investment? If the former, remember you may be making a charitable donation. If the latter you'll look from every angle.

Ram, what are you on about. This is to guys, who worked hard for their company, opening up a small shop and building a business. simple.

Thanks jonwig. Clearly the related party transactions in relation to the St Lucia company are very opaque. They are not even disclosing how much was paid to the founding directors to buy out the remaining shares. An admission document which goes into great detail in every other respect lacks basic disclosure when it comes to this related transaction - precisely when they should to show propriety. One of my rules is not to invest in a company where the management appears dodgy, no matter how good the business. There is nothing worse than bad management to destroy a perfectly good company. I am going to sit on my hands until there is clarity around this issue.

This might be worth reading ... as over-rated as their product? Http://www.shareprophets.com/views/20645/hotel-chocolate-a-house-of-cards

Agreed with your view about being over valued and rated, however as regards the comments about the goods, I cannot comment other than to say that the odd few that I have tried (having been given them as a gift)is not something I would repeat but I would suggest others try them and see if they come to the same conclusion, as you seem to have done. The packaging of the product and design of the stores is what seems to sell the chocolate, presenting the products as being of premium quality. It is all about image and packaging, all down to good marketing. Once the market has settled on this one, it could be one to put a a watch "short" list imo.

Crystalclear, It should work fine with window98, you could try downloading the application and just choose save. Then you just need to go to the file and double click on it, it should install just fine. then you can delete the file you downloaded, as it is only the installer it is not needed after installation. basically the install should not take longer than a few minutes.

I clicked on download and it downloaded suprisingly quickly as I expected it to be a big application. Then there was the option to open it or close it. Closing it would have meant I had an uninstalled file on my disc so I clicked open it. Quarter of an hour later, I still have a busy hour glass on this window http://www.advfn.com/p.php?pid=intercast
