    generous on the toffee indeed 🙂

    The colour looks a little light to me – which perhaps suggests a little lack of depth or complexity?

    This sounds very full of potential to be awesome… too bad the lime wasn’t a bit more pronounced! I really like the idea of the flavour combo… i think lime is a flavour that kinda gets “typecast” and you see the same combinations over and over again… lemon & lime, lime & coconut, sometimes lime & chilli… i like seeing it used in something a bit different, and it’ll be no surprise to anyone that i LOVE butter toffee (i also love butter. and i also love toffee. who knew!?), when done well.

    ooh that sounds like a good one!

    You had me at “lime.” Yum!

  6. Tammy McLeod

    Hmmm. Lime is a stretch for my imagination.

    Dude. If I were you, all my chocolate would have been gone on the plane. I can’t believe you have all this chocolate still 🙂 You’re crazy! Or maybe… I am??

    Love me some toffee!

    I love the cute packaging….but I am always sucked in by cute packaging 🙂

    Fiona: It was a plus!

    Whisperinggums: I hope you’re referring to the chocolate, and not my photography skills (although I wouldn’t blame you…)!

    L-Izzle: But don’t you think most flavours tend to appear in the same/similar combinations over and over? That said, yes, I was excited to see lime in this context 🙂

    Simply Life: 🙂

    TheHungryScholar: I hope I have you and sichuan pepper! 😉

    Tammy: Nothing wrong with having to think outside the box, right? 🙂

    Monique: I completely get your point, but you absolutely wouldn’t have! 😀 I brought back at least $200 worth of chocolate – I think I had more than 50 bars. Plus, the only reason I still have chocolate from my stash is because I buy lots and lots of Lindt 85% and Chilli/Sea Salt at home to draw it out 😀 You’re not crazy! (And you’ll never defeat me in chocolate-obsession unless you start eating a block a day too :P)

    Lisa: Me too! I think the Theo chocolate designs are my favourites 🙂

    Hello! Just found your blog. I like chocolate too, of course — people who don’t like chocolate aren’t trustworthy. 🙂

    Lime sounds so good in dark chocolate! Too bad it wasn’t strong in this bar. I would love to find a bar with a really great lime flavor. That would be great fun!

    That looks sinfully delicious! I love bacon chocolate and chili chocolate…ever had either?



    OMG CHOCOLATE AND TOFFEE!! freaking crazy-licious! ur blog is fantastic!! u totally got me hooked with this chocolate post!!

    Caronae: Chocolate lovers unite! If you find a good, strong lime chocolate, make sure you let me know! 🙂

    Alyssa: But of course! When I was in the States, I bought Vosges’ Mo’s Bacon Bar three separate times, and I am absolutely powerless to resist any chocolate that includes chili! Which are your favourite chili chocolates? Maybe I’ll discover something new 🙂

    Kelsey: Thank you! The espresso toffee one was even better, and I have one more by this company to review too 🙂 There are plenty more chocolate reviews for you, too, whenevr you get squirrel-snackish 😉

  14. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Wow there is so much toffee in it! I wonder if that is why it broke like the land before time! 😛

  15. Hannah

    Lorraine: And maybe that’s why dinosaurs became extinct! They ate too much toffee, lost all their teeth, then couldn’t eat anythign else and starved to death!

  16. Kath Lockett

    Ooooh, I do like a generous toffee myself…..

  17. Vaala ◪

    I need chocolate NOW 🙁

    Just the mention of The Land Before Time and I’ve gone all teary-eyed. I don’t think I’ve ever cried so hard in a movie before…

    This looks so good. That looks amazing!!! I can’t wait to try it! I would really love this. But the last time I tried candy-making, I nearly burned the house down! Thank you for sharing.

    I’m rather surprised at this review. I just bought a bar of this at a grocery in Salt Lake City. It was sublime. There was plenty of lime in it and I am planning on buying some more. Frankly I bought it for the novelty and was extremely surprised by how much I liked it. I will definitely buy more.

    The only thing that I can think is that it suffered from being carted halfway around the world and that is why you didn’t enjoy it. I found it a refreshing change from all the espresso flavored stuff that’s out there (no matter how good).

      How fabulous that you got a super-strength bar! I have often found that artisan chocolate companies do sometimes have variances in their chocolate bars. I’d love to try this one again… it’s been over three years since I wrote this review! I do remember liking it; but I liked the coffee one more 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to comment!
