    Oh, the description is lovely and the chocolate sounds divine. LOVE Castle, too. We have to hulu it because we don’t have television but it’s worth it. 🙂

    This is perfect chocolate food porn! 😀 😀 😀 😀 😉 Sorry to hear about your tummy upsetness – being lactose (and otherwise) intolerant myself, I know how it feels and how much it inferes with enjoyment of food. Thank goodness it was (obviously) worth it, though.

  3. Casey @ Insatiably Healthy

    I have an immense chocolate craving that I cannot seem to shake. And I hardly ever get chocolate cravings…
    I blame you 😉

  4. Ashley @ Thefitacademic

    haha, i love Kath’s quote above about the chocolate food porn! I’m a caramel lover for sure and when it’s paired with chocolate? Match made in heaven!!!

    Yum, yum, yum! It looks divine. I would need the sweet caramel, as I usually find very dark chocolate too overwhelming.
    I have a trip to Melbourne and Costco coming up, so I did some research in your blog archives Hannah. My gosh, there is so much entertaining reading there!!

    (Costco will open a store in Canberra and in NSW in July).

    Well it’s from NZ, no wonder you like it. 🙂

    i’m not kidding you, i think Whittaker is one of my favourite brands. and yes, i would MUCH rather be a chocolate fiend. i say own it, ya know?? 🙂

    (on a side note, i’ve never had vegan chocolate, does it taste similar to the original?)

    Drooool. Posts like these don’t help my “I’m-craving-chocolate-even-though-I’ve-just-eaten-and-am-very-full” days 🙂

  9. Julia @ Boredom Abounds

    Wow, that chocolate looks delicious – I’m a sucker for caramel!

  10. muppy

    I love caramel and chocolate so this just sounds delicious. I would eat way too much so I best avoid it I say 😉

  11. Kath Lockett

    You’re right. This combo does work, even though I don’t think that Whittaker’s conch their chocolate (esp their dark long enough). I’m quick to forgive when it is paired with caramel of this quality.

  12. Victoria (District Chocoholic)

    Mmmmmmmmmm buttery caramel. I love it. Almost as much as lime caramel…..

  13. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Look at all of that caramel porn! Damnit I might have to go to the fridge for some chocolate to go with my tea 😛

  14. chanel11

    Chocolate like that is deadly – especially for those with no willpower like me 🙂

  15. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    I just want to grab that bar and lick the caramel out of it!

  16. Umm Mymoonah

    Hmmm, yummy chocolate and congrats to the winner.

  17. Libby

    I love salted caramel but I’ve always liked ‘normal’ caramel. Even more than chocolate itself (uh oh… *runs*)

  18. Simply Life

    dark chocolate and carmel is one of my favorite combinations!

  19. Johanna GGG

    I have no idea what castle is and I suspect I don’t want to but I am quite taken with whittakers chocolate lately but I don’t think I have seen this one in the supermarket aisles – but E was a bit narky I bought him 70% whittakers (or thereabouts) and now is telling me how much he likes it!!! So I would try their caramel if given half the chance but I suspect I might also like half the pack in one sitting!

  20. Louise

    Oooh, shall have to search this one out. I adore caramel, salted or not.

  21. Christine @ Merf In Progress

    I love plain chocolate and caramel bites. So simple, so perfect.

    I’ve never tuned into Castle, but I also loved Firefly/Serenity/Nathan. Perhaps I should watch it!

  22. Helen (grabyourfork)

    Oh I spy a money shot! I’ve been getting into Whittakers lately. It does seem to be a balanced blend.

  23. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Oozy, gooey, sexy caramel…want to…bathe in it… ::entranced::

    I miss you! I’m sorry for my absence. I’ve been meaning to tell you I had a dream about you last week. I was grocery shopping at Target and I ran into you in the frozen food aisle. I freaked out and hugged you and had a million questions about why you were there, but you were very calm and nonchalant. You said you were staying at the home of [other} KC friends. I asked when we could hang out, since you were there for a week (it was a Friday, how I know this I don’t know, but you were going to be there till the following Thursday), but you said your schedule was packed and you’d have a hard time finding the time. I practically begged you to hang out, and you finally relented and said “Ok, Sunday night.” The dilemma, then, was that I apparently had tickets to an A.F.I. concert that night. I decided I’d ditch whoever was going to go with me, and I offered you the second ticket…but you said no thanks! I said surely you can hang out next week…but you said no, you had lots of other people you’d already scheduled hangout time with. I began to debate skipping the concert on Sunday altogether…that’s where it ended. Why does dream-you have to be nothing like real-you?! Don’t worry, I won’t hold it against real-you. 😛

  24. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    Um…chocolate and caramel = two of my favourite = LOVE!!!

  25. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    I guess I’ve been under a rock! Never heard of those movies oopsies! 😛 Duddeeee~~Your descriptions always make me want chocolate. I thought I was trying to be healthy! Wait, dark chocolate IS healthy. 😀

  26. Evan Thomas

    The pictures of that bar are mouth-watering. I’ll be the first to admit that, even though I generally avoid dairy for digestion, I’ve definitely succumbed to some good milk chocolate during cravings.

  27. Maria @ Scandifoodie

    This sounds good, but I’m afraid the only chocolate I can take is minimum of 70% cacao, but really I prefer much more bitter, up to 99%!

  28. sophia

    Hm, I can’t say I like caramel in my chocolate. The pictures are amazing though, I love the close-ups on the sticky, golden caramel.

  29. Anna Johnston

    Caramel & chocolate wins for me everytime, love it 🙂

  30. hungryandfrozen

    Awwww now I am really craving Whittakers caramel, magnified by the fact that it would be no more than, say, forty seconds to the nearest shop to buy some. Glad you liked it, seeing as it’s a local product and all…a vegan caramel chocolate would be soooo good and not necessarily too difficult, I shouldn’t think….?

  31. Susan

    Oh I just bought a block of the whittakers dark chocolate with almond and I love it! I will have to try the other variaties. I am not a big soft centre chocolate lover, but I do love caramel. Can you get this one in Australia?

  32. Whittakers Dark Chocolate Mocha 62% - Wayfaring Chocolate

    […] on from my reactions to Whittaker’s 62% Dark Chocolate, Dark Chocolate with Caramel, and Bittersweet Peanut Slab, I was pretty enthusiastic about diving into this 250g block of dark […]

  33. Lou

    Oh my goodness, I love love LOVE Whittakers (was born in NZ, now live on the Gold Coast) I’m not sure if you’ve tried it, but their Coconut Block is AMAZING. Actually, the only type I don’t like is their Kiwifruit flavour… give me anything else with Whittakers stamped on it, and I’m happy as a clam. Back in the day, we used to buy Whittakers “Toffee Milks” (hard caramel coated in chocolate…) from the dairy (milk bar/corner store) for 10c a piece…. ah those were the days, when you could buy something delicious for 10c.

    Is this Whittakers Dark Chocolate with Caramel wheat & dairy free ???

    If yes can I order in the UK

    Many Thanks
