    I’m so glad your grandpa is ok sweetheart. I was about to write my best wishes for him, then got here and discovered a new post! Sometimes I can’t keep up with you.
    That chocolate bar is a combination of all things delicious!! An application has been made to Food Standards Australia New Zealand for the inclusion of hemp in foods. They are currently still in the review process. Fingers crosses! 🙂

    P.S. My mouse appears to have left the building! For the past three days/nights there has been no sign of her. My mum thinks she must have found my house too cold, and left to find a warmer home! Make sure you protect your precious chocolate bars from mice!!

    macadamia in a chocolate bar is for sure a winner! hemp is an interesting choice to put in there… i’m not a huge fan of it, but at least the chocolate bar is amped with nutrition :). and i love salt in chocolate – it definitely gives that “punch” in the flavor!

    Big hugs to you babe and glad that your grandpa has bounced back xoxo

    Glad to hear that your grandpa is improving, and here’s hoping he continues to do so!

    The reddish tint of the chocolate makes me think that “field of blood” must be the appropriate translation. Okay, not necessarily what you want to think before you eat chocolate, but the flavour combos sound yummy anyways! And thanks for posting your unfettered (mostly) tasting notes. They are probably just as interesting as a proper-sentence-and-paragraph write up 🙂

    Loved your tasting notes, so immediate and almost poetic! Love it!!

  7. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I am so glad your Grandpa is doing ok 🙂

    I also loved your tasting notes – and I love that you *have* tasking notes! – and am most intrigued by the concept of hemp seeds in chocolate. I will say, though, that I think “place of plenty” may be the best interpretation of the title!

    I missed your previous post – but good to know your grandpa is doing fine now!
    Also I love your tasting notes… such a great read, puts my notes to shame!

  9. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    I had to do a double take when I saw the name because of course that is so unmistakably Australian isn’t it! Hehe your tasting notes are cute-and they totally make sense whereas mine wouldn’t 🙂

    P.S. I hope grandpa is ok? *hugs*

    P.P.S. I’m off to grab a spoonful to eat that delicious fudge in a jar that you gave me!

    The Woolloomoolo Bar is one of Vosges’ best seller in America. This holds more to the appeal of the milk chocolate-macadamia-hemp combo than to the texture which is average. Therefore, it’s a chocolate bar to crunch and eat rather than to let melt and linger in the mouth.

    That’s great news about your grandpa Hannah – I hope he gets to come home soon!

    I am really curious to try this. Coconut, macademia and chocolate is great, never tried hemp. This could be a great addition to chocolate chip cookies and brownies

  13. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Glad your Grandpa is doing well. 🙂

    Love your stream-of-consciousness observations on this bar. “If I were a deer, I’d lick you.” Hilarious!

    I’m glad your grandpa is doing well!

    Your stream of consciousness tasting notes are awesome. This bar is actually in my pantry right now… I may have to bust it out for a taste tonight!

    Woolloomooloo – that sounds soooooo fancy! 😀 I’m always astonished about all the different kinds of chocolate brands and flavors out there … It’s a universe! 😯

    Have you already tried the chocolate I’ve sent you? I hope you liked it!

  16. Victoria (District Chocoholic)

    Let’s make a deal. We’ll exchange tonka and hemp.

  17. Kayla @ Fitter Than Choc

    Hannah, it has been such a long while since I last touched my laptop, or visited any blog, and sure enough, many things have happened. I am so so glad your grandpa is fine, and is charming the hospital staff. I hope this chocolate did its job as a ‘pick-me-up’!

    Why Indonesian coconut? Is that supposed to sound exotic? I grew up with Indonesian and Malaysian coconuts and they’re nothing special. But even the name…the heck? Woolloomooloo?! Waahahaha! Love it, love it love it!

  19. sophia

    p.s. Hope your grandpa is still jovially making jokes. You guys are fighters! (hug)

    So glad to hear that your grandpa is doing well. It is very scary having someone you love in Canberra.

    The Vosges bar sounds excellent, but I do agree, not much can compete with the curious chocolatier. I’m seriously addicted to the Dark mint with raspberry.

  21. Tammy

    I love your write ups about chocolate but really, all I wanted to hear about was your grandad. I am so blessed by those special grandparent relations that it is the central focus of many things I do. God Bless Hannah.

  22. Agnes

    Glad to hear that your grandpa is recovering well. xx

  23. Camille

    If I ever saw this in a store, I would buy it in a heartbeat. Though I do wish the chunks of macadamia were bigger…

  24. Monique

    I see it everywhere here, but I’ve never tried hemp anything before. Actually, I think this granola I just bought has hemp in it…. I’m going to give that a try next breakfast.

  25. Emma

    I thought this was a tasty bar, although I only had one of the mini versions, and I split that in two to share. So I didn’t get quite enough of it to ask for a salt lick for Christmas.

    What does ‘big tick’ mean in your notes? Ticks are gross and don’t belong in chocolate. Ticks give you diseases, unlike chocolate. Ticks (probably) taste bad. Chocolate doesn’t!

    wow I wish I could be as articulate in my writing as you are in your tasting notes – and all I could think of was a song we used to sing at school about a kangaroo taking a bus to woolloomooloo

    btw – glad to hear your grandfather is doing well
