    What a lucky day! I think the only thing that could top that is a statue of yourself made with completely chocolate.

    ahahaha oh Hannah. On the one hand, I’m very sad I didn’t see you at the markets yesterday! On the other, I’m glad your dignity was spared by not having another person witness your erm…slight deviance from your usual elegance. And I’m an expert at face-planting, so I’d probably just be critiquing your technique, which would only further your humiliation 😉

    Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the new Curious bars — I’ve tried one so far, and loved it. Really looking forward to digging into the others 😀 So excited to have new ones to tryyyyy..It’s like Christmaaaaaaaas! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Also want to hear what you think of the Cadbury bars — I thought they were really not that brilliant… yet so weirdly addictive. Logically, I knew they weren’t that great, but I COULDNT STOP EATING THEM.

    Hi, Hannah! I just found your blog and I’m reaching for a chocolate bar in order to save my life. Looking forward to reading!

    Hahahaahahahahahaha!! Oh dear! I was imagining you skipping outside the Old Bus Depot markets… must have been all those choc bars weighing you down! But, NINE choc bars will last a while, and give you immense pleasure. Those 20 pple on the other hand, have probably already forgotten that they witnessed anything. 🙂

    Well, you’re still the Chocolate Overlord of All Things Chocolate. You’ve just had a learning experience about tripping over your cape. ^^

    Oh god, the I’m-actually-feeling-like-I’m-pretty-freakin-awesome-oh-crap-what-is-happening-ouch-shame scenario. I’m all too familiar with this one. I’ve certainly never experienced it with 9 chocolate bars in my bag though, so you’ve outdone me here. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever had 9 chocolate bars in my bag. I don’t think I could fit 9 chocolate bars in my bag. I need a new bag.

  7. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Oh petal! If it helps, I am similarly clumsy and do things like this all the time. At least it wasn’t in front of an ex boyfriend or arch enemy though right? And they weren’t holding a camera!

    Onoes! You are a bit chocolate goddess-ish, however. I bought some Loving Earth raw choc with sour cherries and acai and immediately thought of you. Your chocolateering is pervasive!!

    Hope your face is okay!!

    Oh nooo! Faceplant 🙁 console yourself with all that beautiful chocolate (99% oh my!). You’re still the overlordiest (or in fact, overladiest) chocolate person I know.

    I find it a bit of a mission to take compliments myself, not that I get pelted with them daily, but it’s hard not to be like “yes but can I distract you by asking if you saw that stupid thing I did haha” rather than just saying “thanks, appreciate it” or something.

    Oh, how embarrassment. Hope the face that planted isn’t too maimed, and that the chocolate helps your recovery. When I fell a few weeks ago during a plumbing emergency in the house, and damn near broke my elbow, I found a new treatment mnemonic- TRIP- Tim Tams, Rest, Ice, Panadol. It was highly effective and so much better than RICE. And those 9 new chocolate bars would have to help with your treatment. I doubt that the 99% bars would be for me, I don’t much like anything over 70%. Am very intrigued with the new Curious Chocolatier flavours, but they’re not on the website. Argh.

  11. Camille

    What I really want to know is where does the Curious Chocolatier get the patterns for her packaging? I want all of those as wallpaper.

    So if you’re not the chocolate overlord… THEN WHO IS????? People will start panicking and they’ll turn into an angry mob and loot shops and turn over cars if they think there’s no chocolate overlord to strike them down. At least PRETEND to be the overlord!

    In other news, every time I try to type overlord, I type “overload”. Are you the chocolate overload? That makes sense to some degree too…

    1. Hannah

      Oh gosh! I don’t want to be the cause of mass anarchy, looting and pillaging! Oh no! I must don the overlord’s cap to protect us all!

      (P.S. I, too, have written “overload” many a time. In fact, in the above sentence I wrote “overloard”. I think you’re right, though, that “load” make as much, if not more, sense…)

  13. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    haha oh dear – yes that sounds like something I would do 🙂

    1. Hannah

      Even if you’re just saying that to make me feel better… it worked 😉

  14. Kath Lockett

    Oooh! I hope that YOU were okay and that the chocolates weren’t damaged!

    1. Hannah

      I think the reason my right wrist was so grazed is because I landed on that side to protect the chocolate-encasing-handbag, which was being held by my left hand 😉

  15. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Oh no! I hope your pretty face is ok!!
    Luckily, chocolate still tastes good even if smashed, right?
    You’re the chocolate queen in my world, at the very least. 😀

    1. Hannah

      And that’s all I need to be to make my life complete 😀 The chocolate made it through mostly unscathed, as did my face. And, after all, if the chocolate is broken, that just makes for easier cross-section photos, right?

  16. Anna Johnston

    OMG! All the way through this post I was nodding thinking…. ‘well, she’s a bit slow isn’t she…. OF COURSE ….. everyone wants to bring chocolatey tasting gifts your way, its the natural thing after all, in our eyes you already are the Chokky Overlord.., well… I would’ve said Chokky Supreme Queen of all time!
    But to think you planted your little face so indelicately suggests perhaps you don’t know what we all already know & its obviously going to take a lot more chokky bribes before you get it huh.
    Own it Sista…., head high, shoulders back & throw a little swank in thy walk OK!!!

    1. Hannah

      Anna, this comment has made my day 😀 I don’t know if I’m quite ready to pull out my Chocolate Queen Strut, but maybe one day… 😛

  17. Johanna GGG

    how embarrassment! glad you have loads of chocolate to console yourself after your trip

  18. Agnes

    You are definitely The Chocolate Overlord!

    (HAHAHA, I actually typed Chocolate Overload. Freudian slip?)
