    I would make inappropriate comments….. Wish I could be there tonight xx

    I tend to only have gin and tonic in summer while camping so it’s very likely that it would lead me to fall asleep under a tree with a Maeve Binchy novel as a pillow. I have but one book by the Binch, and I re-read it every summer.

    Pity that the flavour didn’t live up to the promise, but glad it was still good all the same!

    I’d be fast asleep before I even finished the glass…

    This flavour is one that I would definitely try!! A gin & tonic will lead me to have another gin & tonic 🙂

  5. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I fear a gin and tonic would lead to a very bad end! I rarely (actually, pretty much never) drink and I now worry what the consequences would be if I did 😛 I’ll stick with the chocolate…with a side of lime.

  6. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    It’s totally fine to send Wish you were here postcards if you accompany them with chocolate, during or after the fact 😛 I have had G&T jellies and they were very nice indeed. Not enough to do any harm though. Clearly I am missing out!

    What a combination! I’m always drooling when you review these unusual chocolate bars. A gin and tonic… well, I’ve never had one so I’m guessing the consumption of many other beverages would lead me to try one and then after drinking it I’d probably pass out. Really drinking more than one drink these days makes me want to crawl into bed 😉

    I like the sound of subtle flavours when it comes to lime and black pepper – after all chocolate is the star we are really here for – the rest are just supporting actors!

    And my parents were off to see the Guard today – I of course hadn’t heard of it – just don’t keep up with the movies like I used to when I used to have opportunities to go to the cinema – ah memories!

    As you, my trans-Pacific twin know, lime and chocolate are a divine combination and it is difficult to ruin. Glad to hear this bar made it happen; the pepper made me nervous but I’m glad to hear it didn’t overwhelm, as it often can.

    I’m still envious of the gin and tonic flavor. Actually, I think that’s the first time I found your blog and have been reading ever since. 🙂

    I had a salt and pepper chocolate bar the other day and loved that pepper flavors with the sweet of the chocolate!

    1. I still really want that gin & tonic chocolate.
    2. Lime zest and black pepper? Two of my fave things!

  13. Libby

    Lime, chocolate and pepper? What a fabulous-sounding combo! Not a fan of G&T myself to be honest, though 🙁

  14. Emma

    I still want the G&T chocolate too. But I’d take this bar over that one, and most definitely over movies such as The Hangover.

    My experiences with pepper in chocolate have been hit or miss, mostly miss because I’ve found the flavor to be too strong. Actually, perhaps my experiences have been all miss. I’d love to try this, though, it sounds perfect for my clearly impossible standards. Lime doesn’t show up in chocolate enough, that’s what I think, you cheeky tingle, you. 🙂

  15. Jenn

    I don’t think I’ve ever had a gin & tonic. I’m not much of a drinker.

    However, that chocolate looks fabulous! I’m sure it’s a wonderful blend of flavors. Yum!

  16. anh

    i love all these new flavours with chocolate. But lime and pepper remind me of steak seasoning more! lol. 🙂

  17. Junia @ Mis Pensamientos

    lime and black pepper and chocolate… hmm, this is stretching it for me. i can’t imagine the three together!!!

  18. Lele

    I don’t like gin and tonic… but tequila seems like it has the effect you’re describing! Lime and pepper chocolate sounds GREAT… but I’d want the flavor to be intense!

  19. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    I don’t even want to know what a gin and tonic would make me do, haha! Lime and chocolate sounds like an interesting combo- I would definitely try it!

  20. Leah

    oooo i love a G&T. Right now it would most likely make me fall asleep 🙂

  21. Lisa @ Blithe Moments

    Gin and tonic is probably my favourite summer drinks. I believe it makes me highly sophisticated and sartorially elegant. In reality it generally leads to random cooking experiments and wild gales of laughter. It probably says something that I keep an old Bombay Sapphire bottle on my desk as a water bottle (I just can’t part with the blue prettiness of those bottles!)

  22. Nachos

    You’ve made this chocolate sound so smooth and seductive. I must have some!

  23. msihua

    I think I need sleep Angle Babe.. for some reason I read “namesake” as na-me-sa-ke.. I thought you were introducing a new Japanese Sake! BUT YOU DON’T DRINK! So.. hmm… I digress… chocolate … MmMmmm

  24. April@MyFoodTrail

    I can’t imagine lime and black pepper going together with chocolate, though I have had the same Red Rock chips flavour (minus the chocolate!). Maybe I should eat chocolate at the same time as the chips next time hehe!

    Hmmm… maybe the more fun question would have been “What HAS gin & tonic lead you to do?” 😉

  25. leaf (the indolent cook)

    I like that snazzy green packaging! And lime and pepper in chocolate would taste gorgeous. Intrigued by the gin and tonic one – I’d probably share it with a friend and have a great night chatting and giggling a little too loudly.

    Oh how I miss thee. Thank goodness for the virtual world. Although, we might as well live on opposite sides of the world, I miss you, and wish you were here. Sigh. I even have chocolate by the truck load in case you randomly appear.
    I’m totally intrigued by the flavor combo of this Choc, it sounds delicious. Want, very much. Hugs headed to you. Xxx

    In answer to your question, other than the one given on my blog (don’t you love internet synchronicities?) is almost invariably, have another. 🙂

  28. Louise

    I hate gin, it makes me gag. I really want to see The Guard, but it hasn’t hit small town Australia yet. I’m still waiting for Jane Eyre.

    […] UK chocolate was sent to me by my friend Jessica, who also kindly gave me these Gin & Tonic and Lime Zest & Black Pepper chocolate blocks. Thank you […]
