    I may have already said this but I LOVE that you focus on chocolate in your blog. My boyfriend and I always looking for the next best dark chocolate bar, so I’m glad to receive your helpful expertise!

    You have just inspired me to bust into the chocolate stash, where I found a somehow-as-yet-unopened bar of Abinao. Yay!

    I am mightily impressed with your descriptions of an 85% bar that makes me want to find it – and I usually find them hard work…

    ….and I’m equally impressed by your inclusion of the Cookie Monster in the same review!

    That’s a very impressive ethical claim I must say! and a chocolate chip cookie taste can only be a good thing no? 🙂 I usually prefer my dark around the 75% mark but this sounds like well worth trying!

    Hungryscholar: You could say that every day and each time it’d make me happier than the last 😀 And I’m not saying the following in a pimp-my-own-blog way, but if you choose chocolate in the drop-down category you should find lots of dark chocolate reviews. (High quality, high cacao dark chocolate is my first love 🙂 Plus, lots of what I’ve reviewed here was bought in your country!)

    Camille: That’s the kind of inspiration I aspire to be 😉 What did you think of the Abinao? Do your thoughts align with mine at all?

    Kath: Maybe one day we’ll find this one in Australia… and what can I say, I’m all about blending high and low culture 😀

    Lorraine: Yes, it’s a shame I didn’t have access to this chocolate when I was writing my ethical consumption thesis! 😀

    yuuum, just the thought of that aroma makes me want it!

    They do, actually. Deeply chocolatey but not punch-you-in-the-tastebuds tannic. Distinctly non-sweet, but in a good way.

    Oh, and hey. I just wanted to give you my e-mail for our future chocolate adventures:

  9. Erica

    That sounds and looks like a great chocolate!!!! Great post.

    85% is too much for me but I love the smell of fresh earth after rain and I also love the blue of the label almost matches the smurf kitchen – coincidence? I think not!

    Simply Life: I can’t ask for more than that! 😀

    Camille: Wow, I’m actually really relieved about that 🙂 I still feel like I’m going to be caught out as a chocolate fraud one of these days!

    HungryScholar: Expect an email from me in the near future, once I’m fully ensconced in Smurf Kitchen and can be assured of my address. 🙂 Excitement!

    Erica: Thank you! It was super yummy.

    Johanna: *gasp* You’re right! This chocolate was fated to be a favourite, and to be blogged in between Smurf Kitchen posts! 😀 Isn’t it the most glorious smell? Or, perhaps, second best… I really love the smell just *before* rain too, when it seems like the air is pushing away everything old and dusty 🙂
