    hahaha i love it when i find stashes of anything given to me by my beloveds :). hahaha i would love finding stashes of nuts or seeds lol.

    The bloom is so pretty on it. Like a dusty chocolate patina.

    that pattern is so pretty – and I love that it is 1902 – I always imagine these boutique chocolates to be made by new companies

    Looks like an old gravestone with inscriptions…! So atmospheric, 😉

    The most mind-blowing chocolate I’ve come across was the Sambrio bar from Rogue Chocolatier. They have online mail order, need I say more? 🙂 I highly encourage you to purchase any of their bars. They are absolutely incredible. They will cost you $7 (U.S. dollars) a bar, but why not get three at a time to make it worth your while? 😀 Perhaps I’m being so encouraging because I’ve just finished the last of my stash and want someone else to ooh and ahh over it with me. Perhaps. 😉

    It sounds lovely. But that is the most aesthetically pleasing chocolate I’ve seen – the surface of it is just grogeous!

    I love the pink and red wrapper. If I didn’t live with a boy, I’d like to think that is what my bedroom would look like.

    Hehe it’s like discovering things that you bought overseas! The shopping that just keeps on giving! 😀

    A 71% cocoa chocolate that isn’t acidic! That’s wonderful news!
    However I recently had a Nestle 70% cocoa block that was really pleasant and not acidic in any way.
    The photos of bloom bring back bad memories for me – so often that’s what happens to my chocolate stash because it has been in my cupboard for too long.
    Apparently bananas will come down in price in spring! Yay! I’m very close to buying a Vita-Mix and I look forward to blending frozen bananas! 🙂
    (I will make sure to lie on the ground and hug my new Vita-Mix just like you did) 😉 That photo of you really made me fall in love with you and your blog Hannah.

    oh sweet post 🙂 & I love love love the print on the chocolate – pretty pretty! Maybe its just the travel reminder…maybe. I miss Europe.

    i really like the sound of the subtleness in this chocolate and i could not resist buying it if i saw it because of the pink packet!

  13. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I like the imprint on this block. I’m sure it’s not entirely appropriate to like a chocolate because it has decorative lettering on it, but I think I could buy it for that alone 🙂

    It also looks gorgeous. And, well, it’s chocolate. What’s not to like?!

  15. Camille

    Love the swirly embossing. And happy memories. 🙂

    The flavours sound lovely. And I like that quaint rustic look of the chocolate itself. Yay for chocolates and BFFs!

    WOOT! A chocolate review! Wow, so many elements to this chocolate- sound so good. Totally diggin your descriptions! I’m intrigued about that pretzel thingy Agnes made you eat …I’ll ask your BFF this weekend. She’s better not feed me anything unusual!!! LOL

    1. Adrian (Food Rehab)

      Sorry, bad english- I meant “She’d better not feed me anything unusual!!!

      Oh dear!!

      1. Agnes

        HEY! I didn’t make her eat the pretzel – Hannah you big liar. You would’ve eaten it even if I hadn’t been there. :p

  18. Cait's Plate

    OH my gosh – forget what it tastes like I love what it looks like! It’s so beautiful!

    I hate the bloom and really can’t stand that font or pink. Growl.

    I’m just kidding, I was just looking to mix things up a bit. But the bloom is always a sore sight to my eyes. Pink is whatever.

    This looks tasty tasty, I only wonder what clotted cream tastes like in chocolate bar form. I think I’d like the taste of sawdust. Why, land sakes, are bananas so frickin expensive in australia??

  20. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    This looks and sounds delicious Hannah! I agree that the burnt taste isn’t too fun 🙂
