I was going to post this on the Easter thread but as it’s now passed, I thought a new thread was in order. Just arrived … a few days late from the Zotter factory in Austria.
I’ve started on the dark chocolate with pumpkin seeds and walnuts (free form - see through packaging). It was well worth the wait. Cheaper than the shops here, and I have a stash to last until the good lady returns from caring for her father in Plymouth. I hope it lasts until then …
Ok I’m over the initial excitement. I discovered this brand after reading a regular column in the Observer. So far the pumpkin dark chocolate was a star, but the caramel and cinnamon was a miss. I ration chocolate at home because I would demolish a bar in one session. Even the Easter Toblerone box went in a couple of days.
Awaiting my dark chocolate hamper from Hotel Chocolat.
Straight forward, basic, Cadbury’s Bournville.
Smooth, dark, flavoursome.
Nice with a sip or two of cognac after an evening walk.
Green & Black’s Almond is one of my favourites and on special occasions I have a penchant for Godiva: these are divine.
That G&B almond chocolate makes crack cocaine seem innocent. Sooo addictive!
I was given a box of Thornton’s chocolate’s for my birthday (caramel selection)
Well they were the nicest chocolate’s I have ever had
Didn’t take long to get through them …but enjoyed every one
I’ve been off chocolate for Lent, so Easter day saw my first chocolate intake for 6 weeks. I ate the ears and head of a Lindt chocolate rabbit.
My favourite regular chocolate is Lindt’s 90% dark.
Otherwise, we’re lucky to have a superb local chocolatier in Tenterden called Truffles at Coco. Their dark “Squirrel’s Delight” is a favourite. They also make the best hot chocolate I have ever tasted. Well worth making a special trip once lockdown is lifted. I just hope they survive.
I’m a novice on the hot chocolate. In a wine society hamper this Christmas I had a pot of Sloane’s, which is a blend of milk and dark. It remains unopened. However, I’ve just notice that they recommend mixing it with King’s Ginger; now I have some of that!
Hansen’s Chocolate from Folkingham in Lincolnshire. Small producer only avaialble Friday and Saturday, but very fine and worth every penny.
A colleague loves and introduced me to chocolate from Läderach.
Tried some at a conference a few years ago, very nice.
Have been meaning to order some for a while.
I like my chocolate the same way I to listen to my music; natural with as little additives as possible.
I weaned myself off chocolate at the age of about 13, so now only have some not to appear rude st dinner parties.
Ever realise your life has become a joke?
They are selling their end of range Easter stuff, I put an order in - yet to see it.
Will check cc
No surprise Daffy.
That was a good reminder - just made a chilli con carne and the recipe demanded dark chocolate - remembered I had a Godiva selection box in another room!
Thought it was nearly empty - delighted to find it full!
Marcolini’s, in Brussels. Anything from them, including hot chocolate.
You are well informed: I’ve heard that dark chocolate is the secret ingredient to an amazing chilli.
