Hotel Chocolat Offers a Tasty Investment

Given the volatility of the stock market over the past few years, a guaranteed return sounds like a pretty good thing. One British retailer is offering just such a return in exchange for a healthy investment.

Hotel Chocolat has put together an offering for Chocolate Bonds. The Bonds are available for £2,000 and £4,000. The return is paid in monthly Chocolate Tasting Boxes, worth £107.70 or £233.35 a year, a 5.38 – 5.83% return. And Hotel Chocolat isn’t joking – the company has put together a 24 page Invitation Document for investors the lays out the terms of the investment and advises concerned or interested parties to talk with their financial advisors.

It’s an extension of the retailer’s Tasting Club subscription system. Members pay a yearly fee for delivery of Hotel Chocolat’s high-quality, ethically traded goods. The Bonds take it a step further for shoppers that want to commit to their favorite chocolate brand. The up front payment will help Hotel Chocolat establish a marketing fund that will allow it to grow, create more jobs, and support workers in the industry. Sounds like a great return on investment.
