    She really IS a bit of a trollop, isn’t she? And those aren’t rocks! They’re giant cocoa nibs!! She will henceforth be known as ‘Nib Wench’, which is, for the record, my dream job. As long as eating this chocolate was part of my daily Nib Wench duties…looks amaaaazing!

      *snort* I can’t believe I missed that. Still, I like the idea of seducing someone with rocks… I wanna be a Nib Wench too. Best job ever.

    “nib brittle, nib brittle, nib brittle” hee. I’ve never really got into the nib thing – either it’s just not as common in New Zealand or it is, and I’m very inobservant, not really sure but most likely the latter.

    That sugar on toast sounds AMAZING and also very similar but superior to a regular snack of mine as a child – golden syrup sandwiches, on heavily buttered white bread…microwaved…

    1. Hannah

      Oh, that sandwich sounds gooood, except I’d like it with maple syrup and cinnamon, please. It’s the microwaved part that gets me. I can be a bit obsessive about heating things up…

      Nibs aren’t too common in Australia yet, either, but I do love their assertive punch of cocoa-depth 🙂

    Sounds like a seriously delicious chocolate bar, I wish it were vegan. I’ve never seen this brand here, is it only available from speciality/gourmet stores>

    1. Hannah

      Oops, my bad, this one is another from the U.S. – so I can’t find it here either! It’s a shame that they didn’t leave the butter out to make it vegan. I do think caramelised nibs can be yummily done with just sugar, salt, and water!

    This post has not only inspired me to pick up this bar next time I go grocery shopping — but also to immediately make some buttered toast.

    1. Hannah

      Hurrah! Might I suggest cinnamon toast next time? 😛 I’ll be interested to know what you think of this. It’s not a crazy-flavoured bar, but on the whole is tasty, I think (obviously, seeing as I just reviewed it as such…)

  5. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Haha you know I did notice her expression and I do think it’s a bit “naughty”! 😛 who knows what she is thinking!

    1. Hannah

      The real question is… do we want to know?! 😉

    I love the packaging on Theo Chocolate- always so cute!

    1. Hannah

      Isn’t it? I love it too!

    The thing I find most disturbing is that Nib Wench seems to have a hairy cleavage. Hmmm.

    1. Hannah

      Maybe she’s trying to attract the llama by showcasing her own inner furry animalness?

  8. jess

    I agree, that packaging is rather X rated

    1. Hannah

      Teehee, I love that I’ve swayed people into thinking this way 😀

    The more I look at that chocolate wrapper the more disturbed I become! Maybe there is an unfair ratio of women to men in the Alps and a girl’s just got to ‘make do’!

    1. Hannah

      *laughs* Work with what you’ve got, you mean? Poor Nib Wench 😛 Hopefully those of us in Australia won’t have to start looking at sheep in that way…

  10. Anna Johnston

    Saucy little llama lovin’ X rated packaging…, tsk tsk!! despite all that…. I think I’d have a crack at them thar chocalit bar.. 🙂

    1. Hannah

      Pirates represent! 😉 Too bad this chocolate is only available in America. BOO!

  11. thehungryscholar

    I’M BACK. I need to catch up on reading, but I’m ready. Bring on the chocolate.

    I like that wrapper. Ha.

    1. Hannah

      Hurrah! Lovely to see/hear from you again 🙂 And lucky you – you live in the same country as this chocolate!

  12. Baking Serendipity

    I’m not sure anything else matters so long as the chocolate tastes good 🙂

    1. Hannah

      Exactly – you’ve got your head screwed on right 😉

  13. Chanel

    Man this sounds awesome – drool….

    1. Hannah

      It was, indeed, super tastytown!

  14. Johanna GGG

    Well I thought she looked quite sweet until you said how naughty she looks and now I think that her basket of chocolate isn’t enough and she is going to steal the baskets from the llamas and eat them all by herself

    1. Hannah

      As long as it’s just the chocolate she’s stealing, and not the llama, then I’m happy. 😀

  15. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    Screw the chocolate, I want some grilled sugary toast!
    (I originally accidentally typed this as “screw the toast, I want some grilled sugary toast”… see how much I now have toast on the brain!)

    Llama girl doesn’t have toast on the brain, but she surely is after some sugar.

    1. Hannah

      *bao chika wow wow* (<= my phonetic attempt at porn movie music).

      I want grilled sugary toast now too. Except, actually, I want grilled cheese on toast. I wonder how sugary grilled cheese toast would taste? *drifts into imagined snack wonderland…*

    Hey now! Cleavage does not equal tramp, you hear me?! 😛
    I can forgive this chocolate not being vegan, since it has such cute, boobarific packaging :]

    1. Hannah

      I hear you, I hear you! I’m just envious because I don’t have much of my own 😛 Also, if I ever create my own chocolate company, I think I’ll have to call it Boobarific.

  17. croquecamille

    Sadly, they did not include this one in the tasting when I went on the tour of Theo’s factory last year. Sounds like my kind of chocolate bar! (I thought you would enjoy that I initially typed “bare” there. Apparently the gutter-mind is contagious. 😉

  18. Hannah

    This Nib Wench is slowly but surely turning us all into skanks 😉 However, I don’t think you can legitimately use the term “sadly” in the same sentences as “tour of Theo’s factory”. Hmph. 😛
