    phew – for a moment I read that you were off eating chocolate and was concerned but am glad you are able to revisit old chocolate

    every now and again I tell myself no cooking new recipes til I have posted all my backlog on my blog but then I get tempted so easily – good luck with the embargo

    Hey, yay for Sainsbury. I’m mildly surprised at how I enjoyed Woolworth’s milk chocolate block the other day.

    ….but HATED their dark.

    Your posts always brighten my day! Unfortunately (fortunately?) I am always craving chocolate after visiting your site though!

    Oh god, the canteen race. I would have one eye on the clock at all times, making sure I had all of my stuff packed away to make a sprint for the door once the bell started it’s very first tiny ring, busting down to the canteen to get my coveted sticky bun or pizza bun before they ran out. Being stuck up on the third floor just before recess was torture. Sometimes you’d be lucky to get the last vegemite roll (with about 5 tonne of margarine).

    Woah marshmallow, earth, ash, its transition into smoke and mud? By George I think you’ve got a new chocolate flavour or at least a macaron one!

    I wish I could smell that aroma you mentioned! YUM! 🙂

    I’m just surprised that a no-sugar chocolate didn’t have any disagreeable fake sugar flavors.

    And now I’m craving marshmallows. Thanks. 🙂

    Where ever your chocolate muffins came from, i am – from your description – POSITIVE ours at melrose were the same. They were really pretty shitty, to be honest. But gosh, the idea of OMG CHOCOLATE MUFFINSsss!!!! was enough to make us completely bonkers.

    Johanna: The best-laid plans, right? I’m already struggling a little, but have plans to buy several Lindt bars today so that I’m not tempted by the kooky flavours in my cupboards!

    Kath: Must admit, I’ve never tried Woolies’ brand of chocolate… odd that one could be great and the other horrid!

    Vaala: Thank you so much! Maybe you could make sure you always have chocolate on hand when you come here? 😀

    Fiona: I know myself, so I know that a “no chocolate at all” rule would never last longer than a day 🙂

    Conor: No fairsies, we never had sticky buns! After the chocolate muffin craze, I believe the most popular item was a “Chicken and Corn Roll in a Roll with Sauce”. Deepfried rectangle of chicken mush with corn, stuffed in a bread roll, plied with tomato sauce… ugh, my tummy is going a bit icky now thinking of it.

    Lorraine: I feel like a bit of a dope now..!

    Simply Life: You’re in America, you can find awesome chocolate like this easily! 🙂

    Camille: I’ve actually been surprised at how good no-sugar chocolate can be. I’ve heard that fake sugar can often have a bitter aftertaste, but so far I’ve yet to come across that in chocolate. Still, nothing beats the real deal!

    L-Izzle: I would bet my left big toe (let’s be honest, I hate the thing) that Melrose and Deakin had the exact same muffin suppliers. Melrose… that’s the one next to Marist, right? I’m going to have to ask you if you knew a particular someone from Melrose, next time I see you…
