    Whoa, did I hear you say Lindt 90%??? There is a God!

    Great blog Hannah, look forward to following your adventures!

    Mmm alternating between Lindt 90% and another chocolate sounds like a nice contrast. Why don’t we ever get flavours like that here except in the individual truffles? 🙁

    My family’s biggest fights have all gone down in Disney World. All that forced merriment … it gets to you.

    This one sounds fantastic. I do love mango. It’s disappointing you didn’t like it more. Still I’m sure that it’s better than the stuff I have access to…. I tried one yesterday that I knew was going to be bad, it tasted like compound! Quelle Horror.

    It does sound quite promising. Chocolate and mango is a good combination, and cashews would only improve the partnership. Shame it wasn’t better done!

    Cashew in chocolate sounds good…I’m not so sure how I feel about mango…

    Ms Baklover: The 90% is so good; really vanilla-y! Definitely try to track it down if you like the dark stuff. And thank you so much, I’ll endeavour to have more blog-worthy adventures soon 😛

    Lorraine: I see I’m going to have to mail you some Curious Chocolatier chocolates when I get back to Australia 🙂 But yes, it’s an utter tragedy that Australia won’t move beyond truffles. If only I knew how to temper chocolate myself…

    Lauren: And that’s precisely why I’m ambivalent about New Year’s – forced merriment often ends in disaster.

    Louise: Dare I ask what it was? And mango is a pleasant fruit – if only the chocolate had tasted of it!

    Theresa: I think the mango and cashew pieces needed to be bigger… I really can see the combination working, so it was disappointing!

    Heather: You would be safe then – there was no mango taste at all! 😛

    Bummer, mango and chocolate can be so good together. I guess you can’t win them all, though.

    Camille: And apparently you don’t lose them all, either! In this case, I think we came a comfortable sixth-from-last.

    Aw, a shame it wasn’t as mind-blowingly good as it sounds! Have never heard of 90% chocolate, I imagine it’s an intense experience 🙂

    Laura: You definitely have to be in the mood for it! But if you opt for a quality company like Guittard, Theo, or Pralus (or in this case, Lindt), then the over 90% experience = good intense. Just stay away from Dagoba’s Prima Materia!!
