    I love the Lindt Salt Chocolate.

    I don’t know if I have a lame-o-pun to share… shall have a think!

  2. Ladybird

    Hrmm… nor do I!

    Normally I’m a sucker for anything that contains even a brief mention of caramel and fleur de sel.. what a shame this was a let down. Maybe you could make an improved version yourself ?! 😀 I’d be happy to help you try it, of course!

    No way! I guess sometimes you really can’t judge a choc by its cover…

    You are a huge fan of oysters, and you are totally addicted to chocolate; do you think that, if you kept all nine bars to yourself, you would be considered shellfish? (sorry, even more terrible than yours) 🙂

    I am truly not a fan of those milk bottle lollies either.

    Disappointing chocolate is disappointing. If I was looking for salt and didn’t get any…especially with all those pretty caramel pieces…well.

    Puns? I love this guy:

    Oooh I always loved the milk bottle lollies and this block looks so purdy – maybe it’s destined for me, instead of you, dear Hannah. You know sent to the wrong minion and all that? 🙂

    Careful Hannah… don’t indulge in too much nut mastication. I’ve heard it can make you go blind.

    In other news, how thoroughly disappointing. While I suspect I’d *like* this bar, I’m definitely sad to hear that it didn’t live up to its potential. Which is bountiful. And delicious-sounding. Humphhh.

    Milk bottle lollies are awesome. I bet the Overlord likes them.

    Last time I shared a pack of mixed lollies with my sister she was eating all of them to get them over and done with quickly as she doesn’t like them and thought I didn’t either. She has now been firmly corrected of this mistaken belief.

    oh I love the look of this!

  11. Johanna GGG

    But if you aren’t the chocolate overlord then who is?

    And I suspect I would enjoy this chocolate because chewy caramel and milk bottle lollies appeal to me! I will swap it for a red panda cupcakes!

    I love any and all lame puns. I do not love sugar that masquerades as salt. Or vice versa.

  13. Lisa @ bakebikeblog

    I have never actually tried anything like this! I am intrigued. I really do think that I need to expand my chocolate repatoire!

  14. Nirmala

    I love the combination of caramel and salt! Doesn’t salt accentuate everything?

    Nothing like some excessive nut mastication.

    I saw a really terrible visual pun a while back. Not terrible as in “it’s awful but it’s a good pun”, terrible as in “that’s not even a pun”. It was a technicolour picture, Andy Warhol style, of a classic picture of a certain psychiatrist, with the caption “ONLY THE GOOD DYE JUNG”. Would’ve been funny if it was ACTUALLY PICTURE OF CARL JUNG INSTEAD OF SIGMUND FREUD. It was on a Tumblr about puns, and like 185 people had liked it or reblogged it. That’s 185 people who THOUGHT THEY GOT THE JOKE BUT DIDN’T.

    I saw another terrible pun yesterday too, as the title of a journal article on caffeine consumption in school-age kids. It was… wait for it…

    “MOUNTAIN DEW OR MOUNTAIN DON’T: a pilot investigation of caffeine use parameters and relations to depression and anxiety symptoms in 5th- and 10th-grade students.”

    Oh my god that doesn’t even make sense. It makes slightly more sense if you pronounce dew like an American (ha ha, do vs don’t, I get it), but… mountain don’t? Reminds me of mountain goat, really.

    Actually I saw a letter to the editor published in Nature once that was basically saying “please stop using stupid puns in your titles – the titles end up being uninformative and it’s difficult for a lot of people who have English as a second language to understand what the hell is going on”. Very fair comment.

    Well at least it looks pretty right?

    Hmmm, lame puns…I was emailing my cousin about the stress fracture on my foot and she came back in her reply that it would be very stressful for me, and then she must have realised she’d made a joke and proceeded to explain it to me!

    Tsk! Tsk! Don’t you hate those show ponies? All dressed up full of promise & perform like a donkey 🙂

    Hi Hannah – noticed your comment on Helen GYF’s blog about never trying pandan ice cream. Blasphemy 😛 Couldn’t find an email to contact you on, so I thought I’d leave a comment.

    Passionflower cafe does lots of Asian-inspired ice cream flavours including taro, black sesame and lychee rose –

    Chocoholics – I take it you’ve churned through your fair share of chocolate cafes =) Lovely blog by the way!

    Two peanuts were walking down the street at night. One was assaulted.

    (You have to say it for it to work…)

  20. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Excessive…NUT…masturbation–ER, mastication…oh god, filthy-corner-of-brain self-combusting!…

    This Bovetti brand had my attention; all you’d reviewed so far sounded great…too bad this broke the chain =/

    Psh, asking me to name a single favorite lame pun is like asking me to name my single favorite nut…when everyone knows that it’s not a good mouthful unless you’ve at least got TWO of ’em.


  21. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Is Chocolate Underlord a term? I’m terrible at telling jokes and I suspect this might extend to being terrible at telling puns too 😛

  22. Agnes

    But… it looks like there’s tons of salt on it! Boo, what a disappointment.

    And you know I like puns. The dumber the better. Don’t get me started. 😀

    […] 5. Bovetti’s Milk Chocolate with Caramel and Fleur de Sel is far more delicious when sent to you from Conor than it was when you bought and reviewed it yourself. […]
