    As I have already stated, your brother happens to be cute, but I understand why that is not on your list. And that collection of Vosges? Oh dear. It rivals mine.

  2. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    Aw, that’s so sweet! I don’t get along with my brother, really. We are total opposites! I always admire brothers and sisters with good relationships 🙂

  3. Margaret

    Yes Hannah, you really do have the best brother in the world. 🙂
    Those chocolate bars – oh my God!!! I marvel at the creative minds that come up with such flavour combinations. I would eat one square each day, to try and stretch them out for as long as possible.

    Wow. He sure has spoiled you. What a treat. Some are a nobrainer for you- peanut butter bonbon? Others look weird enough to be intriguing. Mushroom chocolate anyone? Glad you’ve got an admirable replacement for your recently ruined stash- and I’m sure they’re all in a airtight container as we speak.

  5. Kath Lockett

    He is indeed the best brother in the world – and I have two of them!

  6. Lizzi

    What. A. Legend. ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    1. Lizzi

      ps. I think he is quite possibly a god among men… and/or my soulmate. Does he, by any chance, need a lovely and adorable part-time girlfriend? I’m thinking he and Angus could have a job-sharing arrangement. Angus buys me cheese, but never chocolate, and I really need both in my life, so this sounds like the perfect deal!

    Nawww what an awesome brother. And I love your figure skating inspired photo too!

  8. The Food Mentalist

    Wow! Lucky you, I am looking forward to your review of these chocolates. Are you really training to be a figure skater? how exciting!

  9. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    Awww this is so so so cuuuuute! *melt* I always wanted an older brother! So cool that he got you that stuff and cares hehe.

    Oh my! Am braced! I think I shall have to visit you one day, and then ignore you during the entire visit while studiously reading that book. Just kidding about the ignoring 😀

    What a supercool brother, the gift of a wall of chocolate and mutual pain-forgiveness are definitely hallmarks of a good person.

    Also: Love your shoes and dress in that photo!

  11. Vaala ◪

    I’ll fight you for that title…my brother (well, one of them anyway) is also the best brother in the world 😛

    1. Vaala ◪

      And I know you are not supposed to have favourites but, well, I do.

  12. Pierre

    Waaa… black truffle and chocolate… it’d be a psychedelic aromatic festive. (I hope it is). My favourite person in the whole world is actually my little bro too. He’s not a teacher tho 🙂

  13. Johanna GGG

    awww what a sweetie – I am beginning to imagine there is a hannah alarm that goes off at customs when people come by with their suitcase laden with chocolate! (that would be the one where they all swoop and take a few bars for themselves because there are so many that hannah wont miss a few)

  14. Simply Life

    wow, bringing back all that chocolate definitely would make him a wonderful brother!

  15. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    My brother is going to Canberra at the end of the month. Do you think I could get him to bring me back a Hannah? I think that would beat all those super thoughtful gifts from your brother.

  16. Jac and Jenn @sketchfreevegan

    ah! omg i’m jealous of your book! love sondheim and his “hats” 🙂

  17. Megan (Best of Fates)

    Oh my goodness – I’ve been drooling over the book forever! Then add on all that delicious chocolate?

    You’ve sold me – he’s definitely the best brother ever.

  18. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    ooooooh what a sweetie indeed!!

  19. Agnes

    Awww, what a brother! Not sure what thought processes went through both of your minds before you posed for that photo though…. 😉 Looking forward to your 1000 word chocolate reviews!

  20. whisperinggums

    And what a pigeon pair eh. I figure I’m the luckiest mother.

  21. penny aka jeroxie

    Awesome brother!! What a keeper 😉

  22. Tammy

    What a great tribute to your brother but I want to go to that restaurant with you next time. I’m interested that you are increasingly showing us raw food options – something that I have dabbled with in the past but find hard to do with a family. Lead on Hannah and bro!

  23. Lauren

    Guess what I gave to my recommendation-writers? Vosges bacon bars, of course. It was a no-brainer for my most recent supervisor, who received Pocari Sweat and Colon from the Korean grocery store at our office White Elephant. I’m not sure how the distinguished Japanese politics professor will react, though.

    I am SO jealous, though. I keep eyeing the wasabi bar, and I think I’ll have to finally purchase it.

    (Now, KEEP THESE CHOCOLATES AWAY FROM ANTS [or whatever it was that ate the chocolate next time].)

  24. Anna Johnston

    Yep. That pretty much wins my vote for ‘really cool brother’ award, nice one 🙂

  25. Casey @ Insatiably Healthy

    What a sweetheart! You better repay him with some mighty-fine home cookin’ !
    I see those chocolate bars all over the grocery stores around here but I get overwhelmed at which flavor to choose!
    Looks like you didn’t have that problem 😉 I’m excited to see your review of each one

  26. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Wow can he be my brother too please? And I’m assuming you’ve seen Blades of Glory Hannah! 😛 Oh hang on, that relationship went a bit weird. Forget I said that!

  27. gmasydney

    No,Whispering gums – I’M the luckiest mother – and ALSO the luckiest grandmother.

  28. Sean

    You bro sounds great; I’ve got a gaggle of them myself and they’re all pretty nifty too. Dennis shared the best cut of venison from his most recent hunting trip; Kevin is a master brewer; Brendan has a way with turkey, swathed in banana in banana leaves or submerged in boiling oil, always succulent and flavorful.

  29. Alisa Fleming

    Where can I find a brother like that? I need one of those.

  30. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    What a sweetheart! It’s only too bad he couldn’t swing by KC. I’m sure Matt wouldn’t have minded. ;P
    I love that pic of you two!

  31. Susan

    Wow, I am so envious of all that chocolate! I love all the packaging too. Makes you want to eat it, although is if you need much convincing!

  32. Libby

    What a good-looking lad! (I guess it runs in the family :))
