    I have to say that of all of the chocolates E. Moonbeams mentioned in her review, camel milk chocolate is the one I least expected to be real! Now, how long are you going to make me wait to find out about the one that Napoleon would have eaten …? 😀

    Mmm….chocolate, now with 100% more camel.

    INdeed! Geeze, camel milk…really? *shivers* LOL
    But yes, you gotta try things at least once in your life….except for bugs. I ain’t eating any bugs, spiders, any form of insect, snakes or anything along those lines. *more shivers*

    Camel! I thought I read Caramel because I have never heard of camel milk but must be quite handy in the desert (if your travels take you there) – and a new dairy free milk too!

    Seriously? I’m not sure that’s what they really meant. Thought of you this weekend when I took cherry tomatoes filled with pesto to a potluck!

    HAHA what an interesting one! I had a camel ride once in Egypt and if someone were to ask me to drink camel milk, I’d would!! 😛 hmm.. not sure if my tummy would agree though…

    Camel milk chocolate? It sounds so awesome I am willing to try 😀
    All for exotic chocolate!

    I really never expected that camel milk would feature in this camel chocolate! How very cool, even if slightly creepy. And I was thrown back to childhood with your picture of Ovaltines, and of course The Land Before Time makes me sad too even though I can’t remember it at all. Clearly my subconscious remembers something, and that something is traumatic!

    Camel milk? Seriously? Who milks camels? I’ve never seen anyone milking a camel. I know there’s more to your post but I can’t get ‘camel milk’ out of my mind. How lovely to be sent a care package xx

    Woah, aren’t you a lucky gal?!

    Camel milk…. hmmmmmm I can see why you needed to pluck up the courage to try it 😛

    I’ve heard about this brand before, and it makes me very curious. Curious if there could be things such as rabbit’s milk chocolate, or maybe cat’s milk chocolate. WHY HAS THIS NOT BEEN DONE? 😀 Hmmm, you know where I’m going with this.

    Don’t worry, I wouldn’t do that to you. I don’t ever want to hear the words “I taste cat!” come out of anyone’s mouth.

    I love that Shocking Popping Candy packaging. So fun! So fresh!

    The Land Before Time was It for me, best movie, saddest, and so on… until, that is, I started babysitting as a teenager and found out there were sequels. Lots of them. And watching “The Land Before Time Before” as the kids called it (the 4th in the series) kind of took away my emotional connection to the film…

    I feel exactly the same about The Land BEfore Time – I’m actually too scared to watch it again. I think I saw it when I was about 7 and I KNOW it is really sad. It must have emotionally scarred me or something.

  14. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Spay Lady, I found myself in the hideous situation of not having any chocolate that I wanted to eat at home. Clearly, as a pro, you would never find yourself in that sort of situation!

    “I taste camel” hahaha! Nice!

  16. Ellie@Fit for the Soul

    wowwwww that is insane, but so so cool! I’d totally give this a try! Although the “too sweet” bit makes me a bit wary. I love goat cheese but not goat milk, so not sure how camel milk could be. And this is too funny~it reminds me of Meet the Parents when they’re talking about milking cats, lol. Hopefully you know what I’m talking about so I don’t feel like a crazy woman. 😛

    I agree – there was definitely a yoghurty tang which was a little disconcerting but I couldn’t think of a better person to provide detailed tasting notes of this desert dessert (ha). I don’t know who had more fun though – you going through the package [“it’s a big envelope filled with sand!”] or me devilishly trawling the shops looking for crazy things to add to it!

  18. Yasmeen @ Wandering Spice

    I feel, as an Arab, that it should be a requirement for me to take a bite out of this. Amazing find!

  19. Silvia

    Oh… you had the camel milk chocolate! 🙂

    I have no idea how camel milk tastes related to cow milk, though.

    Just over a year ago, while driving out in the desert in Qatar (where I currently reside), we were invited by a camel herder back to his tent to try fresh camel milk. I admit it wasn’t terribly tempting other than the opportunity for the experience. It ended up not being disgusting as expected. Being freshly milked, it was very frothy, and didn’t have a very strong taste at all. Shortly afterward, I found out about this camel milk chocolate, which is not available here, but we just went to the UAE to visit friends and picked some up. While not the best chocolate I have ever had, it is a unique gift to bring to friends when we return to the US to visit.

    P.S. The lollipops in Las Vegas (where I hail from) are tequila lollipops, which have a tequila worm in them. Never tried them, but they are a tourist favorite.
