    Interesting. I’d love to try these. I’m really interested in that kinda taste-trickery — using other elements to give the impression of something different, as in the turbinado sugar creating a more conventional milk chocolate taste. I remember noticing that when I was in England and had a dark chocolate bar with vanilla (as in, real little itty bitty grainy bits of vanilla, not just *~*~*~vanilla flavouring*~*~*), and I was amazed at how it changed the flavour profile into something much softer, much more comparable to milk chocolate.

    In other news, I still haven’t eaten ANY of my chocolate! Either from Schoc (btw they’ve got Valentine’s Day strawberry and rose bars out at the moment, which I think I’ll have to get my hands on) or the ones from you. I’ve eaten so many meals out the last few days..I actually don’t think I’ve eaten a single thing at home. It’s driving me nuts! I want to sit in my PJs in my bed and eat my yummy goodies and not have to dine in public/at people’s houses where I have to use table manners and be respectable!! hahaha do you think Other-Hannah, Lauren & co. would be pissed off if I cancelled our plans for dinner tonight on the grounds that I want to eat chocolate? :p

    L-Izzle: Askinosie actually makes a bar with large pieces of vanilla bean and sugar crystals that I’d love to try, but I’ve never come across it. I just had the rest of the turbinado Salazon bar (even I couldn’t finish three 85g bars in one go yesterday) and was surprised again at how strong the caramel flavour was.

    Table manners are ridiculous. And if you do end up having dinner with Hannah (& co.), please inform her that there will certainly be nights in England where all I want to do is stay in my hotel room eating chocolate and writing reviews for my blog 🙂

    bahahah WILL DO! 🙂 and yes, i am having dinner with them. i decided i’d make the sacrifice and let them have the pleasure of my company :p i will, however, opt to go home for dessert, because i know what’s awaiting me will be infinitely better than anything the cafes of civic are likely to offer 😀 😀

    ps. yummm… let’s make it our mission to find that bar. whoever finds it first MUST save some for the other, or hair-pulling and pinching will occur.

    pps. my mum is currently enjoying the pb on strawberries with yoghurt – big thumbs up from her! can’t wait to try it on ice cream.

    I love the combination of salt and chocolate too, a friend of mine one brought me chocolate covered pretzels from the US, and I loved them 🙂

    Kristy: Oh, you will absolutely have to make a salt-and-chocolate pilgrimage to the US soon! The combination is everywhere these days, and there are many such treats that are both vegan and gluten-free, so you’d be safe!

    So, are you submitting any photos to be the new label? And if they pick yours, how much free chocolate do you get?

    Croque Camille: Do you think they’d like the picture of the processed meat sticks? 😛 And sadly I can’t see anything about winning a lifetime’s supply of chocolate if your photo is picked…
