    Wow, I’ve never heard of the goldy-perfumey chocolate from NZ – sounds pretty amazing.

    I find Haighs choc SO SO SWEET, but it does look like a pretty jam-packed fruit+ nut variety…. nothing worse than stingyness with the fruit and nut.

    Good luck with all the organising/packing/doing stuff…. it’ll be worth it when you’re heel clicking in NYC!

    Oh my GOD does that ever look good!
    My first thought was, “Is that pistachios in there?” and then, finding out it was….. my involuntary drool glands kicked in….

    I like the look of all three chocolates! The Schoc one looks most interesting, with very pretty-sounding flavours.

    I wouldn’t mind a piece of the first chocolate. Mmmm coconuts!

    sure sure, I bet you eat chocolate covered in gold every day!! :P

  6. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    Ohhh i like all the chocolates :) especially the one with toasted coconut and gold leaves hehe

    WOW 2 weeks left?!?! I’m SO SO SO excited for you!!!

  7. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    2 weeks? Oh, how amazing!

    The idea of frankincense and myrrh in chocolate is impressive indeed…that first coconut one is also impressive and could give Lindt a lesson in how to make dark chocolate dark. Humph. Splendid selection and reviews, as always :)

    Good luck with organizing and packing and getting ready to leave! It’s so soon!

    That gold, frankincense and myrrh chocolate is so cool- it’ like Christmas in a bar!

    How on earth did you keep from posting about a gold leaf-studded chocolate bar for so long?!? That would have popped to the top of my list of “I must tell everyone I’ve ever met plus all those creepy people that follow me without ever commenting. And I must do it NOW.” What wild flavors to boot.

    I see one of A.DazzlingLady’s chocolates saw the light of day (the internet) very quickly. When you are (A.) Dazzling Lady, special privileges come along with that. And good for her, cause that Theo block is quite tasty:)

    Ooo! Frankincense and myrrh with gold leaf is undeniably the most interesting chocolate flavor I’ve ever heard of. Somehow, it sounds incredible. I imagine the smoky, earthy flavors of pu-erh tea.

    Um…I only JUST unpacked a box of stuff from my travels, and it’s been a week since I’ve been back. LOL. Talk about a dollar for organizing! I’ll take plenty of dollars, too!

    That fruit and nut bark is just SO pretty! Look at that chock full of green!

  12. Dienna

    Ooh, I’d love to try a chocolate bar sprinkled in gold leaves. It looks and sounds delicious!

    Gold chocolate? Now THAT is classy ;)
    I love Haigh’s chocolate too! I actually worked at the Sydney store for work experience last year and they had this policy: While packaging chocolate, eat whatever you want :P

    oh… classy! gold leaf chocolate. you will conquer all the chocolate one day!

  15. Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake

    More chocolate reviews yayy! I love looking at your chocolate reviews, coconut sounds awesome! And wowwwww gold covered chocolate! That’s so fancypants!

  16. Hotly Spiced

    Your list sounds overwhelming. I’m sure you’ll get to the end of it soon! Shame on Lindt for adding artificial flavours. That first vegan chocolate from the USA sounds like my pick. I love chocolate and coconut – great mix xx

  17. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    I have some frankincense in my bag at the moment. In some countries, they eat it like chewing gum! It’s quite fresh and reminds me of vietnamese mint and lavender :)

    How wonderful to have on your to do list that you need to eat chocolate! I want a to do list like that! All chocolates sound wonderful. The coconut chocolate sounds like my kinds of thing and I love that you have had to eat chocolate and gold to get through your to do ist – things you do!

  19. S

    You know you’re getting into some fancy shit when the chocolate you eat has GOLD FLECKS in it.

    I feel that once you have reached such heights as gold flecked chocolate, you are entitled to not give a damn about paperwork anymore :)

  20. CheezyK

    Gah! Scoh Choc has an outlet in Queenstown! They have some fantastic looking flavour combos to try too, I do believe I’ll have to pop in for a look-see.

    You have your passport? You have your ticket? You have your accommodation in NYC? Everything else will start to seem very unimportant soon … :D

  21. Caitlin @ livelovenyc

    you seem to like chocolate as much as I do! i had this one bar a while ago that I bought at trader joes – dark chocolate with sea salt, filled with caramel. it was bonkers :)
    i’m very interested in that coconut bar!

  22. Ali

    Glad you gave the Haigh’s another try…and found one that you didn’t hate ;)
    That Schoc chocolate sounds fascinating!

  23. Agnes

    If you sold off your chocolate stash you might make some money. :p

    Hurrah a chocolate worthy of kings! And queens! And daikon-wielding women of awesome :)

    Golden chocolate…. I have now seen it all. It’s certainly lovely, but I’m not sure I could really justify eating a precious metal like that.

  27. Debi

    It all looks so yummy! I came across Theo before and I really wanted to try it, until I read the allergen information. :( Sadly, most of the chocolate I find I can’t try even if it is dark without any dairy just because it was made in a facility that also produces wheat. Pesky gluten! I hope you enjoyed it for me, too! :D

  28. Debi

    Unfortunately. :( But, as long as you enjoyed it, I know it’s good and that someone out there is happy for it. :D
