    Oh darn. I am giving up chocolate for a month! And I want this now!

  2. Emma

    Ooh yikes, you’re getting all illicit on us ! Were I to taste cigs, I’d probably adopt a matronly tone and scold my kissee. But then again, this sounds so frightfully romantic, perhaps I wouldn’t.

    I just saw this bar today on My Kugelhopf and the first thought to cross my mind was that I need to get my sh*t together and purchase some bars for you, and then request in a purty purty please but serious and perhaps forceful convincing manner that you somehow must finagle this bar and send it my way. Long sentence, eh.

    Wow … what a magnificent review of a chocolate bar … best review I have ever read.

  4. Sophie

    So romantically poetic. I want this chocolate. Now.

    I’m off to raid Koko Black on Lygon St tonight I think 😉

  5. Three-Cookies

    Amazing, you collect/accumulate/hoard chocolates. If only the taste got better with age, or maybe it does to some extent?

  6. CheezyK

    So many fantastic sounding flavours, all in one bar – not sure about the ‘freshly printed paper’ or the ‘taste of cigarettes’ though. Nonetheless I do believe I know where my lunch time walk is taking me today …

    Oooh I like the thought of illict kisses – smoking or non-smoking – I’m not going to say no.

    I love coming here on this Quitting Sugar thing I’m doing because a) I like to torture myself with looking at your food porn but also b)I really really like chocolate.

  8. Lou

    oooooo sexy 😉

  9. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Oooh. I’ve never even seen this flavour! Your review is poetic enough to make me want to find it 🙂

    Also, multiple bags of chocolate??? I’m impressed 🙂

    would love to see your stash – and how you enjoy your new macbook (are you moving from mac to pc or are you a mac person through and through)

  11. Alisa

    Wow Hannah, that bar both looks and sounds like perfection!

  12. Sarah B @ Bake + Bike

    What a description! Me gusta!

    Heh I have the opposite temperature problem at the moment – my cupboard is near the window and when it’s mighty cold, my chocolate sort of half-freezes and tastes quite unpleasant. Must find new storage spot.

  13. Kate

    Oooh, the last paragraph is so racy! 😉 Interesting to hear you compare chocolate to cigarettes- I’ve always thought that dark roast coffees taste like cigarettes and when I told my co-workers that at the coffee shop where I used to work, they thought I was crazy!

  14. Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake

    Ohhh the chocolate sounds so fantastic…I love dark chocolate and I LOVE Koko Black dark chocolate. I bought a bag full one year for valentines and made my own truffles with them. Was the best chocolates ever!

  15. Lisa @ Blithe Moments

    Amazing given the inordinate number of times I have been to Koko Black, I am still yet to try any of their chocolate bars. Filled chocolates oh yes (give me those raspberry filled dark chocolate hearts any day of the week), but the bars no. If it weren’t for this darn rain that is sending me home to commune with the couch, I think I would be headed over there as soon as work finishes.

    I LOOOOVE Koko Black chocolate. Love.
    Heidi xo

  17. Maureen

    That’s the most beautiful piece of chocolate. I wanted to keep reading 🙂

  18. L-Engineer

    Hope we don’t get broken in to by the Choco-Burglar!

    “It’s like the taste of cigarettes on someone’s lips as you kiss them in the blue-black night, but mixed with honey, and sugared almonds, and toffee.”

    Best. Ever. Turn it up, girl.x

  20. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Wow that sounds like a sexay chocolate huh! 😉 Like kissing a bad boy 😛

  21. Louise

    What a wonderful stock of delights you have waiting for you. I love Koko Black on those too rare visits to Melbourne or Canberra.

  22. Bryan

    You chomped into a bar past its best before date! Haha… i guess it’s just a guideline anyway… Love that chocolates too have their single origins…. reminds me of my coffee obsession!

  23. Kath Lockett

    Koko Black use Callebaut chocolate, so it’s nice to see that Callebaut are moving towards single bean chocolates. I still think that KB are overpriced for what they offer, though, which in this case is melted Callebaut in a block that doesn’t even have the KB logo on it…..

  24. Catherine

    Loverly! Go Mexico!!

  25. Silvia

    Oh, this one looks good.

  26. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    I wanna kiss whomever you’ve been kissin’, missy.

  27. theresa

    I love how you’ve just casually started with your dad working hard (for the second weekend in a row!) on *your* laptop, while you sat on the deck, chatting and eating chocolate. It’s a good way to arrange things, I think!

  28. Libby

    Slight tobacco breath is hot, in my opinion. But the lips of a packet-a-day smoker? Ugh. *thinks back to my first boyfriend who not only had bad smoker’s breath, but had cold jelly lips*

    Oh, how is the Macbook Air? I’ve been thinking of getting one 🙂

  29. Ashley

    Wow. Um. Wow. Do you reckon Koko black is open now at 10:25pm…? Have a chocolate hankering that needs some fixin…

  30. Eleanor@eatinglikeahorse

    I love your chocolate reviews – you write so well 🙂
    This looks delicious and what a result to find an unexpected huge chocolate stash!

  31. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Wow, Koko Black really should compensate you for such a rave review! It sounds devilishly devine!

  32. ck

    I want your taste buds Hannah as when I bought and tried a couple of their single origin dark chocolate, the only word I could find to describe them was ‘soapy’ and I have never tried chocolate that tasted soapy before. It was awful. Maybe the fact that yours were a gift full of kindness and mine were self-purchased makes the taste so much better?!

  33. msihua

    It’s a treasure trove! Like the things-in-a-box Angle Babe! Wuhoo!!

  34. juniakk @ mis pensamientos

    i really want to try this dark chocolate! especially since it seems so pure and simple. can i get this in the US?

  35. Fiona

    FINALLY getting to read this post xxx
