    The sesame one is one of my All Time Favourites but I’ve never seen the pistacchio one available in Australia *sob*

  2. Tammy McLeod

    I’ve never seen either of these and so jealous!

    We can get Cote D’Or in Townsville 😀 It’s one of my standard dark choc purchases, which I use in baking and just for eating. It’s gooood.

    I have never considered sesame and chocolate together till now but I want it so bad after reading this post! I love the elephant too 🙂

    Well done on your 100th post! I hope you keep blogging, and look forward to reading the next 100 posts 😀

    Woo hoo. Congratulations on your centenary post. It’s been a fa fabulous and entertaining ride for all of us.

    I’ll have to check out the Cote D’Or selections here, but I’m sure I’ll be disappointed. I don’t remember seeing either of those. Actually, you have no idea how disappointed I am now by any local supermarket excursion. Each time I check the chocolate section, scouring it for any unexpected delight, besides bog standard supermarket lines which I know clog the shelves. I hope to see a sparkling jewel like something I’d see on your blog, and all I see is Cadbury’s Dairy Milk. It’s disheartening.

    I do like the Cote d’Or Bouchee though and we can get those (I just know that I’ll have to buy some soon now), will have to try and search out these more exotic variations. Just a quick google and I got quite a shock- Kraft owns Cote d’Or!

    Oh dear Louise, you do know how to spoil things don’t you? I want some of that Sesame Chocolate as I rather like Sesame Snaps, particularly the Black Sesame Seed ones.

    And, congrats Wayfaring. You’ve entertained us right royally and I’m not biassed at all!

    Congratulations on your 100th post!

    I’ve been intrigued by that sesame one, but have yet to try it. Perhaps one will sneak into my basket the next time I’m at the grocery store…

    That chocolate looks amazzzzing.

    Congrats on your 100th post and your 1000th comment, I think those numbers are great!

    Kath! Kath Kath Kath! Do you mean to say you’ve found the sesame one in Australia? Be still my beating heart!

    Tammy: I’m jealous of your bucketloads of kale!

    Theresa: Do you have these flavours? In Canberra, I think I’ve only seen the plain dark and the raspberry… (which aren’t half bad, as you say!)

    Laura: Thank you thank you! I’m still a little bit in awe that you read mine – I loved yours for so long before starting my own!

    Louise: Thank you! That means so much 🙂 But at least Cadbury’s does crazy new flavours sometimes… like that popping candy one, and that horrible, horrible “dessert” line 😛 And unless a chocolate is obviously artisan/small-company, I think it’s sadly pretty common for it to be owned by a big corporation!

    Whisperinggums: Oh gosh, now I feel like I’ll have to share some if I bring it home… too bad I already bought your birthday present 😛

    Camille: Thank you! And really, it’s not your fault if you’re in the chocolate aisle and one just falls, kamikaze-style, into your basket… I do think you’ll like it, seeing as you’re a fan of deep-toasted-caramel flavours (yep, I reread your Ble Sucre post!)

    Kelly: Thank you! The numbers do feel nice to me 🙂

    Happy 100 and 1000 Hannah! 😀 And that’s my most common complaint about pistachio flavoured things-that they taste like almond. I spoke to a chocolatier in Austria and he said that pistachio paste is a lot more expensive than almond paste so people use that instead 🙁

  11. Hannah

    Lorraine: Thank you!! Must seem silly, when you probably get 1000 comments every few days! 😛 And that pistachio-almond thing is disappointing, but seems very true when I think back on some lacklustre nougat/ice creams I’ve had. Someone needs to tell sweets makers that green food colouring does not pistachio flavour make!

    Oh man, these chocolates are making my mouth water! I want chocolate now! I have also recently discovered just how good sesame seeds can be. We have these awesome sesame seed and peanut butter snacks you can get at most of the Asian supermarkets…SO good. I’m now imagining them coated in chocolate.

  13. Hannah

    Vaala: Well clearly you’ve got a trip to an Asian grocery store and then a date with a bain-marie and a block of dark chocolate in your future, right? And then a trip to the post office to fed-ex some to me? 😛

    […] did, however, put two of the sesame chocolate bars in the post for myself before leaving Paris. Which means they’ll be in my hot little hands […]
