    Ahh interesting to see a review of this. I can imagine that it would be either the things that would really work or not! Clever girl posting some bars to yourself! 😉

    That chocolate sounds bizarre – imagine the brainstorming session when they were coming up with that flavour combination – maybe there was a lot of teambuilding and/or appeasing going on that meant everyone’s ideas had to be included 🙂

    good luck with making the most of the end of the journey though I am sure your bed at home is sounding very welcome right now – one of my favourite chocolate cakes on my travel was in a vegetarian restaurant in florence but I wish I could remember where – maybe you will find it anyway or maybe it is no longer there

    ‘Cerises’ makes the chocolate sound quite romantic, as opposed to, say, like a Cherry Ripe. I think anything with 51% cacao can only be good!

    Made me imagine people in the factory backrooms quietly extracting pineapple fibres with tweezers. What a shame that their cherry pieces couldn’t be just that – cherry pieces! Sounds like an intriguing combo though 🙂

    cumin? hehe awesome

    HOME? Noooooo! But where will we get our fix of travel stories and tasting notes for outlandish chocolate combinations from?

    oooh that looks so good!

    I think if they left out the “cherry” bits (and maybe used a chocolate with at least 60% cacao) they could have a really tasty chocolate! Weekend project…?

    Sami: Thanks! I do like to balance my lines 😉

    Lorraine: I’m nothing if not forward-thinking 😛 But I should have posted more – I can’t close my suitcase!

    Johanna: Haha! I’ve never enjoyed teambuilding exercises… Sadly I haven’t been to any vegetarian restaurants, but I did find vegan gelato!

    Belle: Sounds like you’re a woman after my own heart – the darker the better! Though, for all that, I do like Lindt’s Chili Excellence bar, and that’s only 49%!

    Laura: I wouldn’t mind doing some fibre extraction if it was in Johnny Depp’s chocolate factory… Of course, it wouldn’t be quiet in that case; it would be full of singing and dancing. But hey, we both like that, right?

    Fiona: You know, I actually would buy cumin chocolate if I ever saw it!

    Agnes: I’ll keep blogging, if y’all will keep reading! I can eke out the travel stories for a while, and there’s always new chocolate to be found… will you come back?!

    Simply Life: Too bad it didn’t taste as good!

    Camille: I whole-heartedly agree! Sesame and caramel alone = winner. And by-gosh-gee-whilikins, I might soon be able to do my own kitchen projects! (Except most likely I’ll keep leaving the inventing to you, and shall just buy more chocolate myself). Look forward to seeing what you come up with! 😀

    Green papaya salad is my FAVORITE. I’ve always had it with dried shrimps, un-dried sounds yummier. And once in a while, mine has been soupy, too. Dunno whether it’s a mistake or some people’s preference!

    I am looking two smooching Lindt chocolate bunnies in the eye, they are quivering with fear. Food posts always tempt me…

    DANGIT. Posted on the wrong comment. Well, as for this one, I have been looking for sesame chocolate, to no avail. I’ll have to hike back out to a grocery store, as the Corner is no help. Maybe sprinkle some on my chocolate bunnies? And then give them a caramel shower?

    Lauren: Sounds like a fairly fantabulously yummy idea to me! I don’t think I’ve come across any sesame chocolates in the States, but rest assured if there are any in New York, I’m pretty sure I’ll find them in the next two days 🙂 Also, please make and fed-ex me some dried shrimp papaya salad. That would be much appreciated.
