    Wonderful review. This sounds positively fabulous. Flavours of blueberries? Raspberries? Demerera sugar? Pear? All encased in genuinely good chocolate!? Oh, yes please.

    [though perhaps I’m also particularly susceptible to the sound of its charms… I’ve eaten about 12 Freddo Frogs and Caramello Koalas today. And while I am actually very fond of Cadbury chocolate – no shame! – I’ve had my fill for a while, I think, and am aching* for something a little more complex]

    *which is a coincidence, because I’m pretty sure that’s what my teeth will be doing once they all begin to ROT AND FALL OUT.

    I just wanted to say that those heels are HOT HOT HOT!!!!!

    I love those heels! And, I love your reviews of chocolates! 🙂

  4. I love TCHO chocolates

    What I like in TCHO’s approach to chocolate with us the consumers is the focus on taste profile rather than cocoa percentage. Basically, who cares about cocoa and who can tell the difference between 60 and 70% when all one wants is a candy bar that tastes something that is recognizable (fruit, nuts,…), according to Tcho.
    Now how about heels in Tcho chocolate?! 😉

    I so want to be pregnant and barefoot in the kitchen one day too! EEK! Thesis talk makes my head spin. Respect, girl! That TCHO dark chocolate looks might fine, indeed.

    Those shoes look amazing, It’s an extreame shame you haven’t been able to wear them yet! Isn’t New York just fabulous!

    All these pics of chocolate is giving me a serious craving!!

    Speaking of the vilification of feminism, I loved seeing a comment on a site the other day in response to some film actress saying something along the lines of “I eventually want to settle down and have kids – that’s what being a woman is all about”. The comment was “IN BEFORE ALL THE FEMINISTS SAY SHE CAN’T SAY THAT SORT OF THING”. Yep, because that’s exactly what feminism is about. Bingo, well done. Sigh.

    Anyway, I like the complete transparency of your proposed “conflict of interests” acknowledgements. My acknowledgements would probably be like “This project was partly funded by Eli Lilly Pharmaceuticals” rather than “I totally think dopamine has a more important role than noradrenaline in complex cognitive functions, but that’s mainly because I feel animosity towards that guy over in Cambridge who is all like ‘OMG NORADRENALINE DOES EVERYTHING STFU IT’S NOT DOPAMINE’, and I would also find it really really amusing if my research found that the Eli Lilly’s drug, which alters noradrenaline levels, does not have as much of an impact as a drug that alters dopamine levels, because then they would have funded research that revealed how crap their drug is!”.

    And in other news… WAIT WHAT, WHEN WERE YOU IN NEW YORK EXACTLY? BECAUSE I THINK YOU WERE THERE AT THE EXACT SAME TIME THAT I WAS! (And I was buying shoes there too – but shhh! I can’t like shoes if I’m a feminist! I’ve got to wear fisherman’s pants and have dreadlocks from not washing my hair, ok?)

      Also, don’t know if you’ve seen this but I like it a lot:

  8. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    OK Hannah, I’m sure I’m not the first to suggest this (and I’m sure I won’t be the last) but I’d love to see a PhD paper from you on chocolate! 😀

  9. Vaala ◪

    Those heels look positively terrifying!

  10. Simply Life

    i’m not sure how I feel about fruity chocolate but maybe it’s time to find out! 🙂

  11. whisperinggums

    All I can say is that it’s good to see that feminism is not totally dead … and don’t worry, Lorraine, if she can squeeze chocolate into her PhD she will.

  12. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Oh my god those shoes. Oh. My gawd. !!! LOVE! It’s TRAGIC you’ve never worn them! 🙁 Gah, seriously, I LOVE them! So uh, what size do you wear?… 😉

    Oh, and the chocolate sounds good too. 😉

  13. Li

    HOT shoes!!! Me wanty!!!!!!

  14. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    Wow, confession time… MOST of me has no intention whatsoever of reproducing and is hell bent on enjoying ME ME ME and being a fabulous researcher or engineering or cook or whatever the hell I end up doing, and spending all my money travelling and having fun but….. there is totally a part of me that has severe barefoot and pregnant tendencies. I think the part of me that wants to wear those shoes is a bit bigger though. Bigger in more ways than one actually, given that I will never be able to wear those exact shoes as I have size 10 feet. Sigh.

    1. whisperinggums

      And that is pretty much how I felt in my twenties Conor, but if I had stuck with that idea there would be no lovely Hannah in the world. And what a sad world that would be eh?

      1. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

        Oh dear, this logic is flawless. What if I have another little Hannah in the twinkle of my eye? I owe it to the world to reproduce! I am however as lacking in the male-input department as Hannah is, so perhaps I’ll get onto this project at a later date.

        1. whisperinggums

          Well, there is that … but just remember the logic when the opportunity presents itself is all …

  15. Agnes

    The shoes are gorgeous! And as someone with a terrible, terrible shoe addiction (I’ll show you!) I totally understand that you had to buy them despite the toe.

  16. Helen (grabyourfork)

    Those shoes are smokin’! Now that’s the kinda of heel I am most likely to topple over in, without having even made a step. lol

  17. Anna Johnston

    Lady, it must be cruel to have heels like that and not be able to strut your stuff in ’em huh. Good thing there’s chocolate huh….., chocolate was made for times like this.
    Too sad 🙁

  18. Camille

    I have a friend who wanted to take me to TCHO in San Francisco last summer, but unfortunately there wasn’t enough time while I was there (too busy eating soup dumplings…). Next time I really hope to make it there!

  19. Kath Lockett

    Those heels scare me (I’m a ‘sensible shoe’ old bag) so the chocolate wins every time 🙂

    1. whisperinggums

      Moi aussi, Kath. In fact I can – with hand on heart – say that I have never worn heels even approximating those. Sad, really, eh?

    When I was in PNG I saw cocoa growing, and got to eat the fruit off of a cocoa bean. It tasted like custard apple. I really wonder what the chocolate from that fruit would taste like!

    sadly I too find it easier to buy cadbury – succumbed to temptation yesterday and it was sweeeeeeeeet – wish I could have some of this lovely tcho instead – could do with some claytons’s fruit
