Over lunch with the brilliant and marvellous Gena last week in Washington, D.C., I found myself accepting the challenge to write my next chocolate review post in haiku.
What can I say? I’m always up for wordplay.
This one’s for you, Gena.
Coco Handmade Organic Pink Peppercorn & Nutmeg Dark Chocolate
gift from Spay Lady
pink peppercorn and nutmeg
take a bite and sense
hot fudge walnut lingering
pepper like deep earth
Coco Organic Rose & Black Pepper Chocolate
hide-and-seek once played
this second block from Lorraine
seemed a rose trophy
like Turkish Delight
and crisp dark sweet floral truth
tastes not once of soap
Chocolate Stella Organic By Nature White Chocolate with Cacao Nibs
this one from my mum
cocoa butter like thick cream
whipped with vanilla
Theo Organic Gingerbread Spice Milk Chocolate
scent like pain d’epice
sugar sweet and sweet sugar
chai not gingerbread.
