    Hannah, I think we are long-lost sisters because I totally could have written that first paragraph.

    I’m not so happy with my signature scrawl — mostly a series of indecipherable loops that are more horizontal than vertical. But I guess it proves my membership in the journalists-and-PhD-students-club.

    And on to the chocolate: I don’t like heat in mine, but I love that packaging. Good font, eye-catching… but do they explain its significance? Or is it merely weird for the sake of weird? Which is equally fine by me.

    Be sure to write about your first PhD conference!

    My notes are handwritten and invariably come festooned with spots and smears of chocolate and often just a few ‘ticks’ instead of real comments or incredibly useful words like ‘yum’ and ‘delicious’.

    Ah, it’s a challenge but one that you and I are prepared to keep on taking 🙂

    When you said “and I’m not left handed” it made me laugh…I was imagining The Princess Bride. I can’t help it.

    Oh how much I love chocolate…

  5. Simply Life

    I love that you have a word document just about chocolate!…

    I love the packaging on that chocolate – cool skeleton! It definitely adds to the two-bearded-brothers fairytale aspect of this chocolate.

    This chocolate does look really good!! Lovely packaging too. And lol sorry no help with the translation 🙂

    I actually quite like the unclear photos!

    As much as I like chiles, I’m not sure I’d like this on its own…but what can’t be eaten out of hand could certainly still be at home in a batch of unconventional blondies! 😉

    Vegan! Awesome.

    As a dedicated chilli luva I think I’d just have to have a go at this little one, cool packaging too.

  11. Johanna GGG

    ooh too much chilli for me but fortunately I write indecipherable notes and am used to making sense of them – your notes mean that “if it is raining cats and dogs it may cause you to forget where your office is” – ring any bells? But honestly I do write notes that later cause me much bemusement. And I have lots of blog notes for future posts – some which just never see the light of day when my backlog becomes unbearable – good luck with your backlog. And I love the cover – E says it is a little bit neofolk which is a high compliment from him!

    Love love love chocolate. You know I have never tasted chocolate with peppers. May be I should try it some time.

  13. Joyti

    I’ve seen their chocolates at some local shops, but never tried one. I personally love the combo of hot ‘n’ sweet…so these would be up my alley 🙂

  14. Louise

    I don’t think I’d be at one with this chocolate, the chilli sounds a bit much for me. But I do love the packaging too. I wonder if all their products are like that? Wow. Seems they usually have more of a Curious Chocolatier kind of feel.

    Looks really yummy. Why didn’t I get some. Oh, and in case you hadn’t noticed, I think you cheated on your third word. Just telling you because you were brought up to be honest and so I thought you’d like to know…

  16. penny aka jeroxie

    Totally understand and get that randomness. I can’t understand half of my notes on food? Anyway, I want to try this chocolate. love the flavour of chocolate and chilli. They don’t actually compliment but somehow addictive

  17. Agnes

    Chilleh! Sounds like my kind of chocolate.

    Your notes say:

    Being enveloped by burning rain and iguanas, and Iguana Damon is cranky because I forgot him in the office.

    Obviously a metaphor for the chocolate tasting.

  18. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    I love the burn. In the gym and in my mouth. Yeah baby.

    Cantankerous cattle bruises must be impressive. I would like to get some so I can use the term “cantankerous cattle” when people ask me why I’m covered in black, blue and yellow skin. Oh yes, the yellow bruise is the gnarliest.

  19. Camille

    I absolutely adore that packaging. It’s so macabre and beautiful! I also love serrano chilis and wish I could get some here…

  20. Mast Brothers Chocolate with Black Truffles - Wayfaring Chocolate

    […] my brother brought me this swanky Mast Brothers chocolate direct from New York (see my review of Mast Brothers Dark Chocolate with Serrano Peppers here). At the time, this flavour wasn’t even acknowledged on the website, and so I felt muchly […]
