    This sounds GOOD! I suspect that tastebuds can have cockles, and I also suspect that mine would be warmed by this as well.

    Hope you are feeling better soon, and that they re-release the fleur de sel chocolate because the Lindt version is amazing. If only I could find it here in Perth 🙁

    Ooo, that chocolate sounds real good. I was just looking through some of your older posts too and I had no idea there were so many amazing different flavours out there (well, I did I guess but seeing so many here is real cool!).

    That is one of the tackiest wrappers I’ve ever seen, so I’m thrilled and astonished to hear it tastes good! But I do love anything with peanut. (Example: Today for dinner was sorority-approved 35 calorie frozen yogurt with about four Reese’s crumbled on top.)

    BTW, looks like chocolate will be making up a bigger part of my dessert diet: After some detective-ing, it seems I’m mildly gluten and dairy intolerant. I’ll have to stop mocking the writing style of Gluten-Free Girl. Bad karma!

    I like the bollywood-style wrapper, Elephants + peanuts = a very cute combination 🙂

    Sounds delicious, too!

  5. Laura @ Hungry and Frozen

    The packaging reminds me of a poster for a club night or something. Sounds like a really interesting combo of flavours, I’m not super huge on peanuts but the spices sound lovely. And it always pays to stock up on chocolate! I have run out and am now kicking myself at its notable absence from my pantry!

    Conor: We shall have warm cockles together then. 😛 Oh, isn’t that Fleur de Sel Lindt amazing? I’ve never seen it in Australia, but got a friend to send me some from the US last year, and have high hopes of stocking up when I return via New York in a few months’ time!

    Vaala: Thank you for perusing the previous chocolates – I hope something there struck your fancy! The world of chocolate is, indeed, a splendiferous one 🙂

    Lauren: I think I’ve seen tackier, to be honest! Oh, frozen yogurt. I haven’t had that in so long, where in Charlottesville does it? And anytime you’re in a cooking mood and need ideas, you can hit me up for gluten- and dairy-free desserts. I’ve got a lot of deliciousness up my sleeve, if I do say so myself 🙂

    Theresa: Elephants! By gosh I think you’ve got it! I really didn’t see elephants there, just swirls. But you’re right, there are trunks, and tusks. I think I like it more now 😛 (And shall have Baby Mine from Dumbo in my head all day now.)

    Laura: I see that too now! It’s like a peanut disco ball. And *gasp* one must NEVER run out of chocolate! My furtive stocking up was because I only had one little bag of chocolate-covered pumpkin seeds in my bag, and that just would. not. do.

    Well, of course, the spices sound nice to me, though not the peanuts. The wrapper looks vaguely 70s plush to me.

    Whisperinggums: One day, I’ll become a master chocolatier and make this for you with dark chocolate and almonds 🙂

  9. Lorraine @NotQuiteNigella

    This chocolate would probably cause me to try and give high fives to those around me. And oh my god did you say seahorse fleur de sel chocolate and cherry blossom-esque pomegranate chocolate? Be still my heart!

    I hope you’re feeling better! 😀

    Lorraine: Thank you! The sickiness is still hanging around but I’m back to feeling super excited about the travels, so that’s good! I must admit the seahorse and blossom bits refer only to the packaging of the chocolate… while I’d love to try sakura chocolate, I don’t think I’d like chocolate that tastes of sea-creature! (Particularly one where the male so kindly takes on the pregnancy :D)

    oooh what a great flavor!

    oh and mexican cheese is basically a blend of cheddar, monterey jack, asadero and blanco cheese (well, that’s what this package says:)

  12. croquecamille

    Mmmm… spicy peanut. I used to make a spiced (with chile de arbol) peanut brittle as the garnish for a dessert. The stuff was addictive. and with chocolate? Yum! Come to think of it, I believe it was a chocolate pudding cake.

  13. Hannah

    Simply Life: Hmm, well I had heard of blanco as a Mexican cheese before, so I guess I’ll accept that 😛

    Camille: That sounds utterly divine. Oh, what I wouldn’t give for my sense of taste to come back!

  14. Anh

    I wish I could try some of that chocolate! Amazing!

  15. Hannah

    Anh: I wish you could too! It’s always so much nicer when there’s someone else to enjoy it with me 🙂
