    The Alter Eco sounds fantastic! I’m one of those crazy people that notices weird flavors in things, so I actually loved it that you compared the flavor to a cool dark cave. Now I’ve gotta pick one of these up!

  2. Louise

    Ah, it’s always good to regroup and get back to basics. Welcome home. (not that we don’t like the other stuff too)

    Sad about the bubbly chocolate. When I lived in Europe I love Mint Aero bars, but it doesn’t sound as though the Cadbury compares!

  4. Kayla

    Well done Hannah! You got me fooled. When you wrote that you are giving up chocolate, I reread that sentence thrice. I thought I read it wrongly. Thankfully it’s just a joke 🙂 I have never really liked Cadbury chocolates, but I think the Blackout Chocolate sounds absolutely drool-worthy.

    I do love most of the stuff that Alter Eco produces.
    It’s so hard to eat breakfast when these posts come up in the states and not want to dig in to some chocolate 🙂

  6. Bianca @ Confessions of a Chocoholic

    Hahaha El Sneaky Boringfoot I love it. I don’t see enough Cadbury products here!

  7. Christine @ Merf In Progress

    In fact, I *have* missed your chocolate reviews. Yay!!! (p.s. today is my birthday, and I object to it being linked to fools.)

    Ooh I love your tasting notes for the Blackout. “Tastes like cave” sounds weird at first, but I totally get it.

  9. Kacy

    Glad to know that about the Cadberry. I think the fluffy name would probably have coerced me. Now I will know better!

    I have missed your chocolate ramblings. And if I had to venture a guess as to your activities this weekend, I guess Yoga. Although with your penchant for singing, it could well be Bollywood something.

    “If this chocolate was a spy, its name would be El Sneaky Boringfoot” >> god you crack me up hehehehe

  12. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Haha you totally got me there! I really did think you had truly changed your life around! I’m so relieved that you’re still on the good stuff. And hints of clotted cream? Mmmm! 😀

  13. Vaala ◪

    Yes, I have…(missed your chocolate ramblings).

    That is all for now 😛

  14. Victoria (District Chocoholic)

    Hmmm. I could go for eating straight sweetened condensed milk. I have a bit of a sweet tooth.

    Alter Eco also makes chocolate bars with orange :X. Well, and lemon.

  15. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    Oh my gosh, the way you described that bar has my mouth watering!!

  16. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    I must admit that Kinder chocolate always was my favorite … But this is so me: The sweeter, the better. :/ 😉

  17. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    Oh, my half-depressed smiley didn’t show up. I think I have to make it like this, then: 😐

    1. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

      Hehehe, there it is! 🙂

  18. Simply Life

    wow! now I REALLY want some chocolate!

  19. Leah

    Hannah, you always seem to make me laugh! El Sneaky Boringfoot. Love it!! 🙂

  20. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I wish it wasn’t 8.50am here…I feel the need for chocolate coming on 🙂 The Alter Eco chocolate looks absolutely amazing. I stared at the close up photo for a ridiculously long time!

  21. Alisa Fleming

    Ooh, that Alter Eco rambling … er, I mean review … was so worth the wait 🙂

  22. Margaret

    Well dear Hannah, I’m very surprised that Cadbury white chocolate ever made it into your abode!
    I must have the taste buds of a bogan because I can’t understand how you can taste clotted cream, lemon or redcurrant jelly in dark chocolate! To me chocolate only has two tastes: chocolate (milk chocolate) and more intense chocolate (dark chocolate).
    [Hangs head in shame]

  23. Libby

    I like condensed milk and Kinder Surprise but that Cadbury bar just sounds downright nasty!

  24. Fiona

    pfft if anything, get the peppermint bubbly, though you know peppermint aero is a childhood <3

  25. Johanna GGG

    yes I have missed your tasting notes because I haven’t lusted after a chocolate I am unlikely to taste for quite some time – nor thought I would be more likely to buy the one you dislike because it is in the supermarket and if it tastes like condensed milk it can’t be all bad – and quite frankly if it is all bad E will probably polish it off anyway so no food wasted!

    Hi Hannah, I just read your post about deferring your PhD and wanted to congratulate you on being so very brave and courageous! A decision like that is not easy, but ultimately, when you know what’s right for you happiness will follow. You’ll always be special, with or without a PhD – there are gazillions of PhDs out there, but there’s only one you. I hope you’ll find much happiness and success on your new path!

    And I’m really glad I just devoured a big chocolate bunny that my husband bought me this morning (yes, I shamelessly eat chocolate bunnies long before Easter), or else I would not have been able to read your chocolate reviews. 😉

    That last chocolate bar sounds soooo good

  28. Rach

    Hehe! You almost got me with your little April Fools joke. 😉

  29. Bryan

    I do like alter-eco’s chocolate. The Blackout bar and dark Velvet are my faves. And it’s fair trade too! I normally stock up on them whenever I pass by Oxfam.

  30. Angela

    Hi! Finally catching up on my reading – read your post and thought: “what the…?” – Haha, great April Fool’s joke! I read your last post and I’m so happy for you. Sounds like you’ve got a really exciting path ahead! 🙂

  31. Xiaolu @ 6 Bittersweets

    LOL at your descriptions of the first chocolate. So glad the 2nd was much more pleasing to the palette.

  32. Ashley @ the fit academic

    Ick! Sorry about the disappointing Cadbury chocolate!

  33. Kath Lockett

    I have to admit that I couldn’t bring myself to try the white Cadbury bubbly. Milk; yes, mint; yes but white….no. Thank you for taking that bullet for us!

  34. penny aka jeroxie

    now where can I get this bar of blackout chocolate? sounds so sumptious

  35. Susan

    I am not a big fan of white chocolate, unless it’s in a triple chocolate brownie and then I will give it a go!

  36. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    Yay, chocolate ramblings! I particularly love scathing chocolate ramblings, so this MORE than makes up for a lack of general ramblings recently.

    Take that, non-bubbly! Pah!
