    What a shame about those nibs! On a more positive note, thank you for reminding me that I have a thing of chocolate-covered espresso beans lurking on the counter. You know where I’m headed now, right?

    oh look at that texture – it looks like it would be perfect!

    How could I not love this little number with its dark chocolate, roasted almonds, espresso toffee, caramelised cocoa nibs, & crushed coffee beans. Deeeevine… 🙂

    It’s ok. I always get pear (or maybe kiwi if I’m in the mood) at gelatarias 🙂 Stick to what’s good! Nothing wrong with that 🙂

    Now you’ve made me want some gelato baaadly. Or maybe some frozen yogurt…

    Gosh… I was just staring at the close ups? Hooked!

    Yum!! What’s that sprinkling over the choc bar? I’m guessing the cocoa nibs? Looks realllyyy good!

    Must say I love the wrapping … when I am old I shall wear purple, and all that. Hmmm, that means nothing in this context but I couldn’t resist it nonetheless!

    “There but for the grace of coffee, go I.”


    Nice close-ups on the cross-sections of the chocolate. Fun to see the detail!

    They’re like, totally different! One has a brown wrapper with a buzz saw motif, and one is purple with Js on it. Js? Really? They give us a little play on the word buzz with one, and then just stick some letters on the other? This, my friend, is the real disappointment with this chocolate.

    p.s. Mexican blend cheese is usually a mix of 3 or 4 cheeses – I think the one I buy is a mix of monteray jack, cheddar and and colby! That way it’s much cheaper than buying each cheese separately and is a great flavor for certain dishes!

    I never ever thought i’d say this, but with my two day migraine still in full swing, I don’t feel tempted by this one.

    ….better go and lie down in the dark I think!

    hand up – I confess…..I always choose pistachio as well…nothing wrong with predictable….except when you get awful tasting pistachio ice cream which only resembles pistachio by being a vibrant shade of green.

    Although I am loving the many different elements in that chocolate.

    Hannah, there’s nothing wrong with being predictable -it’s called consistent in its complimentary form 😉

    I don’t like coffee but have occasionally found myself entranced by chocolate covered coffee beans – where love of chocolate wins over dislike of coffee – wonder if this bar might appeal for the same reason – though your review doesn’t make me feel I absolutely have to have it if I ever come across it!
