    You rewarded me for catching up on my backlog of WayChoc posts with… another post! Yippeee!

    I can see a cardamom bar in my future, I love it that much….. I’m just saying.

    It sounds like your grandma IS the dictionary! Sounds like a fun Halloween costume, though thesaurus would be more up my alley.

    Wow, your Grandma sounds like a trooper 😉 All the Words.

    Misty just stole and tipped out a whole jar of star anise (and sprinkled it round the house) SO I am actually smelling it as I read this – kind of perfect really (yet messy and annoying) 😉

    Great to see so much more fairtrade chocolates overseas 🙂

  4. leaf (the indolent cook)

    I’d never have thought about pairing sesame and star anise together, and in chocolate!

    I hope I can get these from overseas 🙂
    They look divine!

  6. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Oh gosh, she knows all the words? When you read my latest post you will realise why that would fill me with more than a little fear! I come from a line of librarians (well, two) but they do concede to not knowing all linguistic intricacies.

    This is distracting me, though, from the actual chocolate, which trumps the words and most certainly trumps lawnmowers. I don’t usually like coffee in chocolate but do like spices, so I’d be interested to see how I found a coffee and cardamom mix. Chocolate and sesame, well, I’m pretty certain I would love that.

    Lastly (embarrassingly.long.comment), I nominated you for a Liebster Award if you ever need something else to post about (unlikely I know) 😉

    Lordy be, I have no idea what “J’adore les chameaux” means! I’d better look it up! And grandma probably plays a mean game of Scrabble no? 😉

    Yaaaasy! I am glad these were a success….I got very nervous purchasing chocolate for such an esteemed connoisseur 🙂

    P.S – I told Scott you were living in Canada, to which he responded “hahaha….Hannada!”

    wow, your grandma is cool. I want to know all the words. She’s, yeah, pretty much the coolest!! I find your chocolate posts difficult, I’ll be honest. Because they always leave me wishing I had more exotic chocolates on hand. Entirely my fault, this I know.

    ha ha – I often wish to have a taste – just a wee one and it would go round all your readers – or at least scratch and sniff screen! I always enjoy your tasting notes even if I don’t like coffee nor taste the chocolate but I quite fancy that star anise chocolate

    You really do have such a way with words, and chocolate. <3

  12. Hotly Spiced

    Real chocolate looks so good. I’m not sure about cardamon though. It’s a spice I like in really tiny, subtle quantities. I can’t believe your grandmother edits dictionaries. What a challenge that would be xx

  13. Rach

    Your grandmother edits dictionaries?? That is actually really cool! I used to read dictionaries for fun when I was a kid. 🙂

    No, I don’t read them but I do check to see what you are writing about this time! And you know why I don’t read them, Hannah – they are just too tantalising for someone with a chocolate intolerance.
    PS I don’t know All the Words but I also check new ones I come across, e.g at our Jane Austen meeting today the word ‘scopophilia’ came up. Fascinating! Not something many people would associate with our Jane.

    I love your French banter! I still remember my first learned-by-heart dialogues: ‘Michel! Anne! Vous regardez la television?’ And to think a French publisher asked me out for drinks last month on the strength of my Sydney-acquired parlez-vous!!

    J’aime les chameaux.
