    I agree with all of the above. This bar just screams PEPPERMINT. And as someone who thinks peppermint is okay-I-guess, I won’t be getting it again, but it certainly wasn’t bad.

    Mostly unrelated story time: one time I was signing a lady up for a membership at the gym. She was telling me of her weight-gain woes, before finally saying “oh, who am I kidding..I’ve never really been slim. I just don’t have that kind of build. Not like my daughter — she’s like you….both Animorphs.”

    I just looked at her blankly…”We’re…both…Animorphs?”

    “Yes, yes, your bodies both just kind of naturally have that structure!”

    …suddenly I realised that she meant that we were both ECTOMORPHS.

    NOT animorphs.

    Big difference, lady!

    oh I bet the peppermint adds a nice touch!

    p.s. you received an award on my blog today! 🙂

    Best of luck with the surgery Hannah! And I have to admit I harbour a strange love of After Dinner Mints. They were the height of sophistication when I was young! 😀

    They have pretty cool packaging. I do like a good peppermint chocolate (have an awesome Tradeaid one at the moment that I’m trying not to eat since it’s almost lunchtime…it’s probably a hopeless cause!). 55% doesn’t sound very dark at all…just seems a bit funny to call it dark chocolate when it’s not really. Although perhaps there are rules around what is allowed to be called a dark chocolate and what isn’t…?

    Lauren: Exactly. For what it is, it works, but if you aren’t enamoured with peppermint, it’s a bit boring.

    L-Izzle: *laughs and laughs, wiping tears from eyes* I love your mostly-unrelated-stories (although that really is quite related). Dear heavens, people are funny. I must say, though, my time of reading Animorphs was mercifully brief.

    Simply Life: Thank you! My very first award 😀 😀

    Lorraine: Thank you – two more sleeps now! I definitely remember looking forward to getting my mum’s After Dinner Mint at restaurants, when they used to be served with coffee!

    Vaala: I do hope you succumbed to the chocolate. Chocolate should always take precedence over lunch 😛 You’re right, 55% isn’t very dark, but Lindt gets away with calling its 47-49% Excellence line dark chocolate, so I really don’t know what the rules are!

    just got here…wow…nice blog…i just love chocolates!=)

    Nuh-uh, being too busy making chocolate is a lame excuse about not updating their website. They can do it while the chocolate is setting. Or while the beans are grinding. Or while they’re up unable to sleep cos they’ve been doing too many tastings.

    All the best for the surgery my dear!

    Jassy: Thanks! Well, there are certainly a lot of chocolates for you to peek at here, and rest assured I’ll keep eating and talking about it! 😛

    Conor: I do think you’re right… but I was trying not to come across as too cranky 😛 And thank you; the surgery is thankfully over now – let’s hope it works this time!

    […] pleasant dark chocolate with an overdose of peppermint oil.  Hannah sums up my feelings nicely on Wayfaring Chocolate:  “I prefer not to be reminded of toothpaste and chewing gum when eating chocolate.“ […]
