    Always amusing, sweet, funny and bright. NEVER irritating!

    I love it when you review chocolate that’s available in the states. These are everywhere, but I’ve never picked up the 70% because I haven’t been sure how it would be. Sounds like I’d like it.

  3. Melanie @ Melanie Cooks

    This chocolate sounds so good! I love strong dark chocolate! I buy 70% all the time, and I even tried 80%!

  4. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    You are so good at painting a picture of the chocolate as a whole experience rather than just food. The descriptions of it being blue-black and tasting of smoke and roasted walnuts makes me imagine a small darkly-lit library full of dusty books, dark wood desks, and heavy blue velvet curtains. As strange as it sounds, I want to taste that room!

    Hannah’s ability to decipher subtle flavours is impressive. Walnuts, almonds, brazil nuts…She has a great palate and an eye for detail – “slightly-scuffed-but-mostly-glossy”. Perhaps she is destined for a career as a chocolate sommelier:)

    How do you taste all these wonderful things? Suppose they say chocolate is like wine in that sense… but I can just tell if I like something or not – can’t really describe certain flavours. Maybe my palette is slightly retarded? hmmmmmm sounds yummy anyway 🙂

    Wait, let me just check with Amanda. No, Amanda doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with third person 😉
    (Seriously, I’d be happy if I could be half as creative and interesting as you Hannah!) 🙂

    1. Amanda

      OK that first part didn’t make sense. My brain is frazzled, I blame law exams and assignments.

  8. Casey @ Insatiably Healthy

    You are the sweetest. You also made this chocolate sound like the finest wine ever tasted. I think I’m going to have to go to the store and buy some more to savor! Seriously, have you ever thought of being a food critic, you have the pallette and vocabulary for it. 🙂 Also I am going to work my but off to get back to the southern hemi

    Curses!! Angle Babe, could you rake sway me some dark choco love please? Pretty pretty please?

  10. Margaret

    I didn’t interpret you as writing in third person; you were just voicing our thoughts. We talk to you while reading your posts. 🙂
    Just be yourself here sweetheart – we love you just the way you are. 🙂
    A non-sour 70% is always welcoming news.

  11. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Haha well it’s cute if it is done by you but not cute when it’s done by someone that can’t tell the difference between themselves and the person they’re referring to! 😛

  12. Libby

    I’ve always loved Baci chocolate because I would get excited when I got my little strip of wax paper with a little line of wisdom printed on it but GASP, an ENTIRE stanza from Brontë?! WHOA!

    Libby does not mind talking in third-person nor does she mind if others talk in third-person either 🙂

  13. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)

    Kate thinks this chocolate sounds amazing and would like to add she likes when Hannah talks in third person 🙂

  14. Catherine McLean

    Not only do Catherines enjoy the third person, they frequently refer to themselves in the third person plural (a habit which has led some to express doubt about the sanity of said Catherines), since Catherines are a distinct species (not to be confused with Kathryns, of course) and their habits and opinions should occasionally be observed and studied. Or something.

    This particular Catherine has a friend called Fiona with whom she has been known to have entire conversations with both parties referring to themselves in the third person plural.

    Of course, Catherines have also been told that this sort of linguistic silliness is quite annoying, but unfortunately that only encourages the Catherines to do it even more.

    I say, carry on! You’re much less irritating than I am, and so far there are still people talking to me, so you’re probably safe.



  15. Agnes

    Wow, am I the only person voting for incredibly irritating? Maybe I’m the only one who doesn’t mind crushing your spirit with my bare hands. 😉 Okay seriously, it’s not “incredibly irritating”, but it’s not something that I like. There you go. No spirit crushing required. :p

  16. Johanna GGG

    Chocolate and poems – now why don’t more chocolate makers think of that!

    As for pet peeves, my own right now is little people who will not stay in their beds but I don’t expect you to do much about that!

  17. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Kari is quite fond of third person writing. Or so I’ve heard 🙂

    This is delightful – and I am so impressed that it came with a poem! Gorgeous.

  18. hungryandfrozen

    I. Love. Your. Attention. To. the details of chocolate’s many flavours (I lost interest in my awestruck full stops, but please read this sentence in your mind like they’re there anyway.)
    Just thought you should know that I got a 404 message when I clicked on the Salted Maple Rice Krispies!

  19. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Both amusing and irritating – is that possible? I could never find you irritating 🙂 but I can totally see the irritation factor. Perhaps I am amused by the irritation factor? I don’t know, quiet, Heidi, haha. Either way, it’s great. As is the name of this chocolate.
    Heidi xo

  20. ck

    ck finds the occasional, clever use of the third person to be both cute and amusing. ck does however find it, when the person is being serious, rather than amusing, to be a bit creepy! ck is with Hannah, the darker the better and lurves the bitter edge. Thoroughly enjoyed reading the review, I just always wish I could try the chocolate at the same time. Good job Hannah and Hannah!

  21. Bianca @ The Cooking Capers

    That chocolate looks SO good! It looks so creamy for a dark chocolate.. Mmmm!

    I don’t mind the third person speak, as long as it’s not regular and throughout the entire post 😛 it can be cute sometimes though!

  22. penny aka jeroxie

    Nice looking chocolate. And I speak as a third person many many times. nothing wrong right?

  23. Eleanor@eatinglikeahorse

    Eleanor would like to inform Hannah that the use of the hird person in moderation, as above, is not irritating in the slightest but rather entertaining… Eleanor would also like to mention she loves the description of the chocolate and could herself never get further than “It was delicious and there’s none left” 🙂

  24. Eleanor@eatinglikeahorse

    Eleanor would also like to point out that the missing t on third, above, was completely intentional, to make some deep and meaningful point….. 🙂

  25. Anna Johnston

    Smiles brightly! Hannah and Hannah… Love your weird and wacky ways. And this choccie. I am on a mission to find you chocolate from weird and wonderful places. Talk today I’m sure. 🙂

  26. Angela

    I think I tried this once… it’s vegan if I remember correctly? I love the little poems inside too! Third person is totally acceptable, in moderation 🙂
