    I often feel better after eating junk, a lot of the time after veggies and healthy stuff I feel a bit eh, its rather strange ( isn’t it meant to be the opposite!?)

    Think of what those carrots will do for your night vision…

    Hehehe… “like a lace tablecloth over a dinner table.” I like that one! You know, I also kept reading Tanzania as Tasmania even though my brain was screaming at me that there was something up with the spelling!

    All I know of Tasmania is that they have their own devil. The chocolate looks so good, I cannot believe that you have chocolate near it’s expiration date- that has never happened to me before.

    haha I read it as “Tasmania” initially too!

    Slightly wild cocoa? SLIGHTLY WILD COCOA? WHAT IS THAT?

    The three heads are all the better for Tasmanians to eat their chocolate (and apples) with. I kid, I kid, I would go to Tasmania, even if I wasn’t blackmailed or physically forced to. Probably. (I kid, I kid, they look like they have freaking amazing scenery/mountains/forests etc. which I would love.)

    Honey-tinged? Mmm, I’m on board.
    “The vanilla was like a lace tablecloth over a dinner table” – Love it! 😀

    Gosh, I had a similar experience the other day of ‘good’ food making me feel bad. I’ve been really sick (fingers crossed the worst of it is over!!) and have been living on comfort foods, purely because they help me not feel so goddamn miserable! Super buttery mashed potato, chocolate, ice cream, crazily sugary cereals, KFC, pizza, pancakes, chips and gravy… very few ‘proper’ meals.
    The other day I decided to make myself some ‘real’ lunch…something with ingredients that aren’t a chemical or followed by a preservative number. I figured I probably so desperately needed some vegetables and fibre and vitamins, so I dragged my pathetic, snotty, whiny butt into the kitchen. I made an impromptu Moroccan(ish) stew/curry kinda thing, with pumpkin and zucchini and beans. I served it with brown rice and made some super garlicky (gotta keep my immune system up!!) tzatziki to go along with it. I had a big bowl of salad, with a lovely lemon and sesame dressing, on the side. I was so proud of myself. It was great. It was nutritious! It tasted good! It had vegetables and grains and dairy and all kinds of things that are good for you!
    ….aaaaaaaaaaaaand I felt horrendously bad after eating it. Clearly, ‘real food’ is not what my body needs when it’s unwell. I have returned to eating crushed up chocolate-covered scotch finger biscuits in milk as ‘cereal’ and melting marshmallows and honey on toast. I’m not hugely devastated by this.

    Beautifully described, dear Hannah. You reach for far better descriptors than my always plodding ‘it tasted quite nice’. Well done!

    Chocolate that’s purple but NOT Cadbury? I just…don’t understand it. But it looks great; I have to say I hate fruit (or fruit overtones) in my chocolate though. It’s nuts or nothin’…

    Sounds great and something I can eat too! Btw, what do you think about whittaker ghana dark chocolate? It’s my current fav, and pretty good for supermarket chocolate with a slight coffee taste, but I’m not the expert so would love to know your thoughts.

    I love Lake Champlain chocolates! I was lucky enough to visit their factory store a couple of years ago…pure heaven!

  13. Simply Life

    I really like that brand of chocolate!

  14. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    I’d try to try that at a wine or food tasting-“hmmm I smell dancing unicorns there too, do you get that note?” 😛

    You know, when I read the title of this post I could have sworn it said ‘Tasmania’ & while reading through you mentioned Tanzania….., suddenly it all made sense. I totally understand why a girl feels nice n peppy after a few squares of chokky & a little ‘not so much’ after carrots. Makes sense to me.

    I went on a tour of the Lake Champlain Chocolate Factory when I was in year 8, and chowed down on so many chocolates afterwards. It was amazing. And only, like, 2 hours from my house. I don’t know why we only went once and not every week.

    Hooray! Diving into the stash! This was my balancing act this morning: plate of macaroni and cheese, plate of Mediterranean mushrooms and red peppers, cucumbers in vinaigrette. (Clearly, this mishmash was the product of a salad bar. But a good one!)

  18. Camille

    I like the slogan on the bar, “let chocolate change your world.” And I also like it when chocolate is chocolate-y, which it sounds like this is.

    do you get fearful that you might get to the last chocolate and it isn’t the best? And then you will discover that despite best intentions you haven’t saved the best til last!!! And will it matter? OK enough introspection – the chocolate sounds a fine last!
