    Say no more This sounds like my dessert heaven. We sampled something like this on my recent travels to Italy. I swooned. Nom.

    Oh I love that wrapper pattern – if you had a chaise lounge it would make the perfect fabric to cover it with. So pretty and posh!

    As for the chocolate I am intrigued but your description – most of all I love you describing the taste as wetness – but I usually find truffle quite potent so I may be with you in finding this too strong for my tastes

    With chocolate that you make sound so enticing like that, it’s a small wonder that half of us aren’t draped over a chaise somewhere, world forgotten as we savour each delectable bite.

    I’m not nearly as adventurous as you with the black gold (isn’t that what they call it??) so really I’m going to refrain from divulging my woeful lack of adventurous. What would you recommend for one dipping a toe into chocolate adventures?

    Oh wouldn’t it be lovely to be in paris with puppies, a handsome valet colour coding socks and a block of rick dark chocolate!

    I have to say, im not the biggest fan of truffle, so i most likely wouldnt want to try this one. It looks gorgeous though, shiny, dark and inviting!

    Not a bizarre chocolate, but i’ve had chilli chocolate, which is bizarre for me. Even though i despise chilli, it was surprisingly yummy 🙂

    YUM. chocolate craving now. fancy truffle chocolate with pretty wrapping that could make a feature wall – I think four walls of that as wall paper might be too much, yes? Bizarre chocolate flavour…bacon!! Vosges. Yes. Didn’t get much bacon but, yeah. Bizarre.

    Oh I love the paper, very pretty 🙂 Truffles are so intense…. I’m not a fan really. Never heard of truffle infused chocolate though, that’s crazy!

    I think all meals should be consumed as if we were channelling Cleopatra! 😛

    This is so different – chocolate and mushrooms? For the sake of chocolate I must try!
    So brave and awesome review 😀

  9. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I thought I was going to love this chocolate but from your description I’m thinking it may have been too much for me…I think too dark, too deep, too intense (perhaps). But I love the paper it came in and I love the name, and I love the idea of it, and sometimes that is enough to carry a product through in my slightly odd world. Especially when I’m living vicariously and not actually tasting the flavours 🙂

    I’m sure I would love this, I’ve been hoping to find it somewhere so that I can indeed drape it on my person and sample away. No luck yet.

    I can picture you, going gaga over the puppies but in a refined way: “Ah bon, mes petits choux!” 😉

    It seems like ideally, a chocolate bar like this would taste like just a bit the added components but would still let you taste the actual chocolate. It’s rare.

  12. Hotly Spiced

    Anything packaged like that is definitely going to be something I will absolutely love. How beautiful is it! And then the chocolate. It looks so perfect – the perfect Easter gift! xx

  13. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Oh, I think that sounds so wonderful. Every time I cut up shiitakes I end up rubbing my thumb across the rubbery caps to warm them, and then that oddly earthy yet sweet smell comes wafting up. If I could dip that scent in chocolate I would, and it sounds like this chocolate bar does that nicely.

    The only fun flavors of chocolate I’ve had are all Vosges, like the one with curry and another with wasabi, but as you said they’re all so faint as to be kind of boring.

  14. Kath Lockett

    No weird chocolate flavours for me lately – having the flu meant that I wouldn’t have been able to taste them anyway. Even *coffee* has been too sour to drink this past fortnight.

    Can you believe we STILL haven’t cracked out the Seasons 1-3 box set of West Wing yet….?

  15. Ashley

    How curious! I’d so love to try that out! And my god. Packaging. PACKAGING. SO PRETTY! <3

  16. SarahKate (Mi Casa-Su Casa)

    I hear you on the West Wing…

    Great write up of the chocolate. Not sure that chocolate and fungus should ever really be mixed, but good on you for being an intrepid explorer and giving it a go!

  17. Catherine

    Ahh! I can’t bear looking at these shards of chocolate knowing that there is not a scrap of it in the house. So I will dream of the chaiselongue and the valet. Mmmm

  18. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    I’ve had quite a few black truffle type chocolates and desserts…but like you I dunno if I actually like it…or if its just simply too weird for me lol but still it’s really nice that you got to try this chocolate YAY!

  19. juniakk @ mis pensamientos

    oh my goodness, the coffee bean dark chocolate from the mast brothers is SOOOO good. i wish you could try it!

  20. Fatboo

    Ahhh that’s quite an image… enjoying a bar o chocolate draped across a chaise like Cleopatra. Love the imagination and how it compares with your pyjama-west-wing reality. 🙂

  21. Andy

    Sea Salt sure is a popular ingredient lately in all things ranging from hot chocolate to coffee and chocolate pieces 🙂 very yum!

  22. hungryandfrozen

    Hee hee, sock valet. I don’t know why it made me chuckle, but it did, so thanks.

    Gosh, truffle chocolate. I’m not sure what the strangest flavour I’ve tried is. But I love how things like sea salt and chilli aren’t so scary and uncommon anymore in chocolate.

    Agh, I still need to get hold of the West Wing! I just can’t wait for all the quips and snappy exchanges!

    I think I know what you mean about wanting to check the mail. When I’m home alone, and having a movie- or tv- or book-marathon, feeling a bit emo, and dressed (or, often, underdressed) like a dag, the last thing I want to do is walk 10 metres to the mail box. And when I eventually work up the motivation, I always, without fail, manage to run into the neighbours while I’m out.

  24. Lisa @ Blithe Moments

    This kind of reminds me of the time my old flatmate brought me, all the way from Belgium, a bar of coffee filled white chocolate. I don’t like coffee and I consider white chocolate a lolly, not actual chocolate. I could see that clearly someone would think this was delicious, unfortunately that someone was not me. I’m really not sure what I would think of truffle chocolate, but the wrapping is so gorgeous I would be trying it anyway!

  25. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    Hm, I always find that dark chocolate tastes sour to me. (This is why I don’t eat it.) So if this was particularly acidic … don’t know. I’m also not sure about salt in chocolate, although some people like it. I bought a nice choc with sea salt and caramel crisp for one of my best friends recently, and she liked it very much. It wasn’t dark choc, though.

  26. Louise

    These Mast Brothers chocolates look intriguing. I love the paper. Not sure that I’d love this particular flavour, especially after your description. And given you’re not sure you like it. The weirdest flavour I’ve ever had was the Vosges bacon one- OMG disgusting. I spat it out.

  27. Camille

    As always, gorgeous packaging from the mast bros. I want that as a bedspread. Or wallpaper. Or both! Anyway, weirdest chocolate flavor? Xocopili from valrhona. It’s terrible, and that’s putting it politely. Cumin, cinnamon, and god knows what else. Stay far, far away. But this makes me think of the time I bought a white truffle macaron, sure that I would be disgusting and thus prove me right in not loving macarons- surely I’ve told you this story before, it seemed like such a Hannah thing to do, especially when I ended up loving it and shifting my position on the entire macaron issue.

    […] Chocolate has the name that it does, for almost every Mast Brothers Chocolate bar that I’ve tried and reviewed has come to me courtesy of my spectacular brother, E.TeacherLord (excuse me for a […]
