    Bissinger’s! Do they still make those mocha mushrooms? Molasses puffs? If they do, you should try them.

    OMG, pumpkin chocolate that tastes like pumpkin pie spice?! Too bad the chocolate itself didn’t live up to expectation but like you, I agree, totally cool concept and in good timing with thanksgiving and all. Gosh, I could just imagine all that pie you must have eaten ST!!!!!

    Your chocolates are always so aesthetically pleasing. Makes me wish I could easily and cheaply get some vegan chocolate besides Lindt in the grocery store. Sigh.

    Also, it seems that in the years since I’ve left, the pumpkin-flavouring of everything possible has really taken off. I think I can get how pumpkin and chocolate would go together… I’ve had a pumpkin-choc cheesecake before, I think. But pumpkin flavoured coffee and beer kind of weirds me out.

    Pumpkin Chocolate Bar?! Wow. I need that in my life. I’ve never seen it here… maybe I need to go beg Whole foods to order it!

    Whoa dog, 5600mg. Don’t even play.

    I want to try that Maca Chunk bar, despite your dislike of it… I’d like to see the underside of the bar too – I can almost sort of kind of picture it. Sounds strange and almost intimidating (but so healthy!).

    love the pumpkin swirl and am curious about maca but never tasted it

    btw thanks for letting me know about your gin and tonic choc review – that chocolate in the photo on my blog is a present so am glad to know I can give it without worrying it is terrible

    Very creative to incorporate real pumpkin into a choc bar. They have pumpkin lattes in your new (adopted) country so I guess its a matter of time before we see pumpkin (real or otherwise) in just about everything.

  8. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Perhaps 5,600mg was just too much? The flavours you found in that chocolate make for an impressive list!

    It does look pretty, at least, with the Lulu imprint, although still not as pretty as the pumpkin one 🙂

    I adore maca and only recently started using mesquite. I don’t find mesquite as strong a flavour though… I will definitely try out the pumpkin+mesquite combo one of these mornings, though. 🙂

    really don’t like the taste of maca. I have tried. OH I have tried…. I find it really bitter and “off” tasting. Lucuma will always be my favourite.

    Pumpkin chocolate is the newest pumpkin hybrid I have seen – it looks stunning 😀

    1. I’m so embarrassed about yesterday’s typo because like Spay Lady, it shows that I can’t spell. I can spell but I’m a terrible typist! 😛

    2. I thought the title first referred to Kim Basinger.

    Clearly I should take myself off the interwebs…

    I have to say I’ve never had pumpkin chocolate. The uses the Americans find for pumpkin never ceases to amaze me xx

    Hannah, have you been able to sample some local Toronto chocolate yet? I saw this and thought of you:

    Pumpkin chocolate? Sounds delicious….! <3

    I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin (unless it’s in soup form) but that Bissinger’s chocolate bar got me intrigued… even if it wasn’t as mindblowingly amazing as you thought it would be.

    I adore Lulu’s chocolate, but the maca isn’t for me either. It just tastes weird. My favorite of theirs is Smoked Sea Salt Almond!

  18. Silvia

    I’ve never had chocolate with pumpkin in it… but sounds interesting!

  19. Spencer

    Looks delicious! I would so love to try some. I am sure it tastes amazing.
