    Thank you, I now know what to do with the abundance of lemons that our tree is about to give us – lemon pepper chicken and lemon delicious!

    P.S. I know it’s probably rude to point out a typo but I like the image that a metaphorically violent pink peppercorn conjures.

    P.P.S. raw, Russian, Napoleonic, camel milk chocolate – E.Moonbeams, you are amazing!

    you know what? i think i would still like this steak chocolate you speak of. I need some more vosges in my life.

    I’ve never had steak so wouldn’t be able to comment on the peppercorn-steak relationship. I have heard it’s very good.

    But I have memories of putting lemon-pepper seasoning on my sunny-side up eggs during breakfast as a kid so maybe that’s where this would transport me to…

    I can see why you like the lady – she is joyous 🙂

    Ew pink peppercorns? No way. Lemon zest + white chocolate= good, steak-bad bad bad.

    I like E.Moonbeams!

    You didn’t even edit it! What a gem you are! Thanks for giving me some airtime on your fabuloso blog, and thank you, lovely patrons of Hannah’s blog for your kind comments. See you next week dear heart! X

    This is a tough thing to write but I’ve found, in recent years, that I do like white chocolate, especially when it has ingredients, cocoa content and quality like this one. Want!

  7. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Beautiful review, times two – I think you need to make E. Moonbeams a regular contributor (in addition to yourself, of course, not instead of). I don’t like white chocolate as a rule, but I was enjoying the sound of this until the steak appeared. Not what I look for in my chocolate 😛

    Ooh I’ve got a new name for you (meant in the nicest way of course)… Chocolate Evangelist!

    I can see why you are so very fond of E.Moonbeams. She is an awesome lady indeed! I don’t eat much white chocolate, but this would be interesting to try.

    what a great team effort – your pink peppercorns = steak was slightly disturbing because I never had pepper steak but had a friend with a love of all things spicy who used to tell me how eye wateringly hot it was! But I am sure it wouldn’t remind me of steak and other than your comparison to lemon delicious pud which I hate – I thought it sounded very interesting and it was good to get some affirmation of this from E Moonbeams as well as hearing that she writes so well she really needs her own blog

    I really wish they’d left out the peppercorns. They make the bar look pretty, but it ruins the delightful lemon-white chocolate balance. Instead, they should make it pretty with grapefruit zest.

    Maybe I should go work for Vosges.

  12. RawGuru

    Hmm, yeah it’s hard for me to imagine what the white peppercorns taste like mixed in a base of cocoa butter…..and lemon zest……but i am thoroughly intrigued and would totally try it out!!

  13. Christine (Merf)

    Are you really allowed to keep chocolate sitting around for a year???

  14. Fatboo

    Its so true that some of our eating experiences growing up can influence how we see an ingredient when put in a different context. Good thy EMoonbeam lady did not make the correlation too, pink peppercorn saved!! 🙂

    White chocolate and lemon zest is a BIG yes for sure but peppercorn? I guess it looks rather picky and although I have nver had steak, I can’t seem to wrap my head round it!
    Thanks for guesting E.Moonbeams! She is awesome 😀

    I love white chocolate so much I’ve been known to eat it until I’m literally sick. I think the lemon zest would work really well but like you, I’m not sure about the pink peppercorns. I know you can buy chocolate with chilli but I’ve not seen peppercorns before. Maybe they’d work better in a really dark, bitter chocolate.

    Hello Hannah,

    Being the undisputed expect of awesome chocolate, where should I go to purchase the best dark chocolate in Melbourne? My usual mix of Raw Earth and Green’s isn’t keeping me interested anymore 🙁 Sad times, I know.

  18. Catherine

    Sounds like something I’d somehow like to try. Wild! I saw some adventurous chocolate in the supermercato last night and thought of you!

  19. Ali

    Wow, that was an amazing amount of chocolate your brother bought back for you! Not too sure about pink peppercorns, either!

  20. Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake

    Wow these chocolates seriously look cute! I love the drawings on them, sort of reminds me of Tim Burton…for some odd reason. That’s a LOT of peppercorns though, not something I like too much 😛

    Much deserved!

    Yeah E.Moonbeams! Love your work. And I know the feeling entirely, whenever I see particularly good chocolate, I think of Hannah.

    Hannah – does this mean your birthday is on the 25th or the 26th? Because I…can’t…count so good.

  23. Emma

    Ah, this is where my bike streamers and ribbons have gone. They’ve paraded across the water to help you celebrate your birthday!

    Another strike against Vosges, I suppose. And hopefully, E.Moonbeams, a strike against bloomed chocolate? Please?

  24. Agnes

    Hah, more chocolate reviews from E.Moonbeams, please! (Not that I don’t love your rambly ramblings too.)

    […] E.Moonbeams, however, enjoyed this flavour, and I’d posit that those of you with a soft spot for Neapolitan ice cream would too. […]

  26. Louise

    I don’t know about this one. It’s not quite the bacon (unestimably gross), but I can see where the peppercorn steak idea came from.
