    Ooooooooooh… Definitely got my eyes set on that Basil and Lime. Sounds interesting! And yay for more chocoalte product reviews. Hey hey, been meaning to ask… Since you’ve eaten SO much chocolate in the past (I meant that in the nicest way possible!), have you had any chocolate combo/flavours that were just way off and didn’t work at all? Haha

    I would love to try that basil-lime! Have you tried the salt and pepper chocolate from TJs? So good!

    Mmm…looks good

    dark chocolate, toffee, walnuts, pecans … TJ’s is going to get soooo much of my money …

    Damn that lime basil flavour sounds exotic, would love to try it!
    Great review 😀

    I love the wrapping on the first chocolate – I want that wallpaper for my retro kitchen – though I would even have it in my bedroom (but then I would have to call it my pad!)

    And want the trader joes chocolate – sounds much yummier than the chocolate caramel bar I had yesterday which was far far too chewy

    I think the last one sounds divine…. but I LOVE chocolate with squidgy raisins… the more squidge the better!!

    Also, I’m strange but I reckon wallpaper made from the Basil Chocolate would be super groovy 😉

    The basil lime chocolate sounds awesome but I’m distracted by the awesomeness of the Trader Joe raisin pecan chocolate.

    ps. I will never look at a squidgy raisin the same way ever again.

    All this just makes me feel that I should change vocation. Can I be a chocolate blogger when I grow up?

  10. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Anything that reminds you of your raw brownies must be good indeed. I think I’d take all of these, but your mention of the top one being English may have me looking out for it over the next 10 days 🙂

  11. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    I’ve never seen those chocolate let alone tried them! But I am the current owner of a 1 kilo block of Amedei Chuao and I’m pretty chuffed about that! 😛

    I think I could do a lot of damage with those peanut clusters. It looks like it would be quite possible, on a bad day, to eat an entire packet. I would like to try the lime chocolate as I think lime and chocolate work really well together – not sure about the basil but would like to give it a test xx

  13. Heather @ Sweetly Raw

    Basil and lime dark chocolate?! I would never have thought up such a thing! Woweee – nor would I pick it off the shelf – I should be more adventurous. But my friend who is a chocolatier makes green curry truffles! If you can believe they are quite good! I’d go for the toffee with pecans 🙂 Mmmm.

    I have never tried ANY of these. Once again, so much chocolate in the world, so little time. I like to live it through you. Although would much rather some of that toffee, walnut and pecan chocolate in real life. Yep. Want.

    You know what, I love the packaging – and can enjoy that even if I can’t taste the chocolate. (But, I’m not much of a one for squelchiness either.)

    Woah…I feel like I’ve just eaten a bar of chocolate just by reading this post! Mind you, I still have some ice cream I need to stick my face in after I type up this comment to my dearest S.T

    Traveling whilst eating chocolate. You have definitely got your priorities down pact.

    Every time I see a Rococo bar, my eyes and heart light up. They are so pretty, so refined, they make me think of a stylish Parisian salon, and people in wigs, and so on and so forth.

    Or, you know, wallpaper and nightmares. Which makes sense too, because I recently watched a Doctor Who episode featuring nightmarish robots, Parisian salons, and wigs.

    YAY UK products! Love it when bloggers review stuff I’ve had but gotta say I wasn’t so impressed by the Basil and Lime Rococo stuff – I loved the idea but thought in practise it was so-so. If you ever get the chance to have more Rococo definitely go for the cardamom it’s amazing, or the rose or arabic spices if you like a stronger flavouring or the violet if you ever had parma violets as a kid!
    Hope America’s going good – next up come to London!

    I had a rental house with wallpaper like that- except the colours weren’t so nice! Brown, orange and silver from memory and there was a glorious spot where it met up with the red splashback in the kitchen and the blue and white obliquely stripped wallpaper above. You know I couldn’t make this stuff up.
