    Dun dun dun…. The required sound effects at the end of any B-grade horror movie trailer.

    I am also a little hesitent with flower flavored foods, but I would probably give it a try as well.

    Why is it called Topsy Turvy? Is it like Oppositeland where everything is well, the opposite? Maybe it’s actually violets flavoured with chocolate!

    If it were truly topsy turvy, you should have been imagining mud and monster trucks and power tools while you were eating it!

    Ew. I dunno about that violet. I am really not a floral type. Appreciate your ability to find yet another example of lack of truth in advertising.

    I know what you mean about floral and ageing – I feel like that sometimes when I smell lavender and rose petals – reminds me of a kiss from a great aunty or visiting the convent with my mum – they are the smells of all those powders and perfumes that I would never touch now though I suspect I quite fancied them as a little girl.

    And last night I opened some rose water, smelt it and just put it back in the cupboard without using it – I like the idea but the smell just isn’t right – maybe I will get used to it and eventually use it

    I need to put my hand up and admit that I love floral flavours although I do have some favourites over others. My current favourite is magnolia which is rather magical! 🙂

    Stacy: Thank you! I actually wanted to write that, but at the last minute I couldn’t decide whether it was “dun dun duuuun” or “dum dum duuuum”. You’ve shown me the light 😀

    Agnes: Violets flavoured with chocolate? That sounds like something we’d find in Willy Wonka’s room of edible delights! (I want to go there.) I have been known to say “mud” about chocolate, but never monster trucks…

    Tammy: Seems like there are quite a few of us floral-tentative/averse people out there!

    Johanna: Exactly! (Although I’ve never been to a convent, but you’re hit the nail on the head with your comment!) Maybe you need to find someone who *adores* rosewater, so you can make a big batch of something and fob most of it off 😀

    Lorraine: Magnolia?? Wow. I’ve only had the chance to try lavendar, violet, and ylang ylang. What does magnolia taste like?

    Hi there,

    I’ve been searching for this chocolate for days and couldn’t find it anwhere. Where in Munich, did you get it? Dallmayr?

      Hi Kerstin,
      Unfortunately it’s now almost three years since I was in Germany, so I can’t remember exactly where I found this chocolate! It wasn’t Dallymayr, I think it was another foodhall place that had a chocolate-focused area directly on the left when we walked in, not far from the Marienplatz. I’m sorry I can’t be of more help!
