    Man, it is beautifull!

    It always puzzles me when a high cocoa % chocolate is super-sweet. How do they do it? Is the bar like 110% total?

  3. Errign

    I adore that poem. That is some seriously baller lookin’ chocolate. I think because it’s Valentine’s Day, I am going to eat a whole bar of Lindt Sea Salt to celebrate. 🙂

  4. Tori @ eat-tori

    You are just way too cute. Love the poem. Love it.

  5. Kayla @ Fitter Than Choc

    Your post made me laugh:) I love how you finish the whole block in less than a day! It’s probably something that I will do too, considering its fruity notes! I haven’t tried Whittaker’s chocolates before though. Does it contain dairy?

  6. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    oh Hannah what a knee slapper! 😛 so cute you are…Duuude the way you describe the choc makes me really hungry!

  7. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    oooh yes Vaala is most certainly the gal you would want by your side if you got lost!!!

    Ps – and I most curious about Sprite sweet 😉

    We have a block of the 70% Dark Granada, I think it is, here on our holiday. Do you have that within your stash (Mr Gums).

  9. Simply Life

    Well done – that’s a pretty creative poem!

  10. Priyanka

    Nice poem! Oh Hannah, I am sorry you have not got a chance to try some fro-yo. I think now I can say, you are missing it. I hope you get to try it soon!

    Great poem… Great post. Glad you have great kiwi friends. A lot of the Whittaker’s stuff is quite sweet I think. I used their 70% to make Nutella fudge last week, and it was a roaring success.

  12. Johanna GGG

    cute poem – we need more poetry with vegetables and pasta in it

    I just saw in the above comment that the louise used whittakers chocolate in her nutella fudge – so did I! What better recommendation can you have (and my nutella fudge went quite quickly – luckily a lot of it at work) I give it the thumbs up

    I had flat lemonade when I was sick – perhaps that is why I like my lemonade with lots of bubbles now.

  13. Kath Lockett

    Nice one – I agree with you too re the super sweetness of the 62%. IMHO I think they do milks better than darks as they often have a grittiness to them.

    Lemme guess – are the other two flavours that aren’t available here yet going to be Kiwi fruit and cocoa nibs? I remember eating my way around NZ in 2008 on those two. The memories…..

  14. Lizzi

    I had this chocolate recently. Totally agree – uncomplicated, but nice. And not ‘nice’ in a boring way! Pleasant, enjoyable, lalalala happy rainbows.

    And yup, lemonade ALWAYS reminds me of being sick! Even now, I still always drink it if I feel a bit unwell/mopey and need a cheer up!

    Your poem was exquisite, by the way. Almost as great as mine to Angus. Almost.

  15. Susan

    I haven’t tried whittakers chocolate for a while. I will have to give it a go again. Looking forward to the other reviews!

  16. Casey @ Insatiably Healthy

    What a clever poem!
    I bet valentines day is a great holiday for you, what with all the chocolate goodies and whatnot.

  17. theresa

    Vaala is the coolest! Happy valentine’s day to you, I hope it was full of chocolate and other things you love. Mine was full of first-year students – O week has begun!

  18. fatbooo

    Haha i just finished a block of Whittakers 72% Dark Ghana. Took me 2 weeks though, I nibble it at work. It’s less sweet then the 60% I think, I looove dark chocs!

  19. Lorraine Not Quite Nigella

    Hehe now for your next venture Wayfaring Chocolate VD greeting cards with poems! 😛

  20. msihua

    VD? Hahahaha… Your mind wanders down funny paths missy! Ooo… hints of lychee? Yum!!

  21. The Food Mentalist

    I am glad you tried this one, I like the sprite reference – perfect for describing something of so sweet!
    it brings me to my next question: have you tried the Whittakers dark choc and orange pieces one? I’m dying to know what its like?

    1. Hannah

      Thanks! 🙂 But alas, I have not nor ever will try that particular Whittaker’s. Orange in chocolate makes me feel queazy 🙁

  22. Erin@TheFoodMentalist

    🙁 I only ask because I tried the best Valhrona with candied orange in France and have been trying to find a similar one I can buy here 🙁

  23. Christine @ Merf In Progress

    I just ate a cupcake, and somehow your post STILL makes me hungry for chocolate!

  24. hungryandfrozen

    “And how!” something that’s really not said enough these days.

    Funny that you say Whittakers is so sweet – we really don’t have a lot of options for affordable supermarket-stocked chocolate here – Whittakers, Cadbury and Nestle is basically it, and so I never feel like Whittakers is all that sweet, but that’s probably just because the other brands are reeeally sweet. It’s still my favourite chocolate to use, so it’s interesting to hear your thoughts on it 🙂

  25. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    Haha, I love your poem! That chocolate looks amazing… but then again, it’s chocolate. Of course it looks good!

  26. Angela (the diet book junkie)

    i was in New Zealand last november and friggin’ fell IN LOVE with Whittakers. (yes, i like the sweet stuff and i’m not ashamed.) wish i would’ve brought a few bars back home with me to Sydney….sigh…

  27. Anna Johnston

    Luvly poem 🙂 Really good read up on this chocolate…, could it be that your actually teaching me a thing or two about the other love of my life! Yep, its entirely possible.

  28. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    I need to try this Mr Whittaker fellow! I loved your poem, too 🙂 Especially this line: “That your veggies stay crisp and your pasta has bite”. My veggies were crisp, Hannah. And my pasta had a lovely bite to it. Thank you 🙂
    Happy Valentines Day!

    I would like to say something else but words are not currently my friend. Oh, but I do want to say that you are really super awesome.

  30. Agnes

    You’re such a poet. Hope you’re loving yourself sick every day. But not “eaten too much chocolate going to spew” sick. Good sick. Wait, is there a good sick?!?

    1. Hannah

      I know. It’s hard to believe there can be this much literary talent inside one person. And the awesome thing is I’ve built up such a tolerance to high quantities of chocolate that I almost never feel sick from eating “too much”. I did, however, have an upset tummy the other night when I ate too much raw cabbage.
