    ooh pretty – I vote for next years chocolate to be blueberries almond and lavender – such pretty chocolate needs pretty flavours

  2. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    haha I could totally see myself doing the same thing with my car in a reflection!

  3. April@MyFoodTrail

    Gosh, I love your quirky stories! 🙂 Life would certainly not be dull with your around (in a good way of course)!

    The wrapper of the chocolate reminds me of vintage tiles!

  4. Ashley

    Oh my goodness….where can I find this yumminess?! It looks so delicious, love your description of it 🙂

    And I’ve been prone to doing such things….walking into walls…following it up with ice-cream to ease the pain…

  5. msihua

    HAHAHA.. Oh my.. complete blond moment,which I would so probably have done as well!! Sigh.. I miss you!!

  6. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    You most definitely needed this chocolate 😛

    I love that the 2010 version got revised! The addition of almonds would go so well with blueberries. The addition of peanut butter fairy chips…well, that would take it to a whole new level. I think she should hire you as a consultant!

    Aren’t these such pretty chocolates. I love the wrapping on these, alas I have never tried them….:(

    Women drivers!! oooops…..!

  9. Three-Cookies

    Absolutely hilarious, I hope you got the parking spot first:) The other driver would have been just as quick as you!

    Unusual ingredients in the chocolate. Reading your blog really motivates me to try different choc combinations rather than stick with the usual tried and tested flavours.

    Mmmmmmmmm marshmallow sweetness and tangy blueberries. Now I want to make blueberry s’more brownies.

    Too bad it’s not even 6 am yet.

    Great packaging, and the etching on the blocks looks so mystical. If I saw myself in my office window, I’d be saying “ahh… this boy is in need of sum coffee!!”

    1. I want peanut butter chips in the shape of fairies!
    2. I have totally done relfection-esque things like you did. So funny.
    3. Mmm, chocolate. I have a bar of Green & Black sitting next to me and I want to eat it, other than the fact that it’s 6:45 am.

  13. Agnes

    You should give up eating chocolate and just have it injected into your veins every morning.

  14. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Haha that bit at the beginning sounds exactly like something I would do! 😛 And then I’d get annoyed with them because they weren’t going! 😛

  15. Emma

    Fluff-y marshmallowy fluffy yum. This bar sounds great, although I wonder where the adventuring cinnamon wound up.

    I don’t know about you, but having a mess of (for me, somewhat) curly hair ensures that any “flicking” I do is completely ineffective. The hair just spring-plops back into place. Which then entices a long, drawn-out “waaaaaaaah” from me!

  16. Iron Chef Shellie

    lol at Agnes 😛

    Sounds amazing. I bought some dark chocolate coated blueberries tonight but I doubt they will even come close to this masterpiece of chocolate….

    I die…

  17. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    I was intrigued when you wrote about their blueberry bar, the addition of almonds and cinnamon does sound like an awesome improvement on the first though. Love how vibrant the colors in those freeze-dried berries are!

  18. Libby

    I was just on their website, looking at their list of stockists…

    And my mind went: ‘Oh WHAT? QUEENSLANDERS get chocolate like this BEFORE Victorians? Where’s all the justice in this world?’ *pouts*

  19. Kath Lockett

    You had me at the gorgeous blue wrapping but then it just got better and better!

  20. juniakk @ mis pensamientos

    okay, blueberries in dark chocolate is a SURE WINNER in my book. i would love to try this one!!!

  21. Casey @ Insatiably Healthy

    mm love chocolate blueberry. The packaging reminds me of the greek isles (not that I’ve been there or anything, it just looks very Opa!)

  22. Louise

    Oh, I was laughing at your car park antics there!

    The chocolate sounds yummy- and clearly great minds think alike. For this very same day (before I saw your post) I had blueberries almonds and cinnamon (well actually cinnamon in the form of leftover pumpkin pie spice) on my morning cereal. I did have a banana on it too as I had some perfect ones and at that price they can’t be wasted.

  23. Rach

    Ooh that looks yummy!

  24. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    hahaha oh Hannah, thanks for the laugh 🙂 Yes, you were definitely in need of some chocolate. This one looks really yummy. Random questions…do you have chocolate for breakfast? like, in pancakes, in french toast or even a chocolate roll (my Frenchie friends would have chocolate shaved into a baguette for afternoon tea in boarding school in France!) I find I can’t stomach chocolate til after lunch. Same with all sweets. Actually really I just love hearing what people have for breakfast. Tell me!

  25. L-Engineer

    Where do I get some?

  26. Mike

    Ah Hannah. Whenever you are not sure which way to turn, or whether to go forwards or backwards, or faster or slower, or
    move to a new space, then that is a good time to pause for a spot of reflection – which is exactly what you did! Your reward could be the tantalising Turkish treat (rich chocolate and cardamom tart with Turkish Delight jewels) described on page 11 of today’s Food and Wine supplement of the CT. Looks particularly yummy me thinks.

  27. Lisa @ Blithe Moments

    Gosh I love the Curious Chocolatier! All their combinations are just divine and I totally agree, the freeze dried fruit they use is about a 1000x better than the usual dried fruit. I haven’t tried this one yet, so I think it is time for a visit to the Handmade in Canberra shop as I never seem to make it out to the markets.

  28. Margaret

    That looks very, very edible. I love that last photo.
    Speaking of peanut butter chips; I’ve noticed they are a common inclusion in recipes in American blogs. I don’t think they’re available here are they?
    They are probably full of terrible sounding ingredients! 😉

  29. Candy Palmer

    Yeah, blueberries and dark chocolate sounds really good and I felt like it will melt on my mouth hahaha. Where can I get those? 🙂

  30. ck

    All sorts of crazy things could have happened with that reflection scenario. I’m pretty sure I’ve had those moments when crazy tired. The CC chocolates and her macs are great. I nearly died of joyous taste overload the first time I tried her salted caramel truffles. Ooooh la laaaaa! And a lovely, friendly and genuine person to boot.

  31. Yasmeen @ Wandering Spice

    I love this flavor combination. I love your writing style. That is all!

  32. Cait's Plate

    YUM! I don’t even like blueberries but I would totally eat this bar 🙂

  33. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    What a beautiful chocolate! Love the package already – looks so fresh! 😀 (And I’m happy I can’t drive, because otherwise things like that would happen to me all the time.)

  34. Anna johnston

    Lol’s…. You do make me laugh. Totes something I’d do. Although, I’ve gotta say, your super considerate of your fellow reflections. 🙂 Great chocolate, I’m dying for some right now, absolutely craving some sweet. I’m with Kathy, the packaging is gorgeous. 🙂

  35. Simply Life

    mmm…now I’m dreaming about what this flavor combo would taste like!

  36. Camille

    Now why would anyone go and ruin a perfectly good blueberry-and-almond chocolate by adding cinnamon? 🙁

    On a happier note, the punchline to your opening story cracked me up. 🙂

  37. Silvia

    This looks and sounds totally like a bar I’d love!
