    Oh YUM you get the best things to review!! Man I really want to try the lucuma bar now…. I’ve tried the rose & mint and loved both…. but I know that lucuma bar would totally be my bag. I want to SQUEEZE that mascot, eeeeeep.

    Wow blue algae and lucuma chocolate? How fascinating! :O

  3. Johanna GGG

    maybe the mascot doesn’t like the blue green algae either – as it doesn’t appear on that packaging. I love your description of the rose chocolate but rose just doesn’t sound like my cuppa tea – am intrigued by the algae – would love to see your tasting notes

    Such interesting chocolate! Although I must admit, I’m even more fascinated by the super-cute packaging, especially the little yellow dude with the pineapple hat!

    It does has super cute logo, but better than broccoli? Get out of town!

    Talk about eye-candy! I probably would have snatched these off the shelf just for their adorable packaging, but the chocolates themselves are beautiful too. I’ve never seen flavors quite like this before and am so intrigued! I wish they weren’t locked away in Australia because I have a feeling they’d be a big hit with the US crowd… and I’d love to get in on the action myself.

    I’m surprised to find you lost for words on a flavor description. Oh how you made up for it with that utterly poetic description of the rose flavor though! My mouth and nose were filling up with a heady rose garden aroma as I read it. Maybe we do gelato on Tuesday. I know a place with a really good rose gelato. 🙂

    Dayum. It seems I’ve spawned a poetry slam. It’s like a rap battle for nerdy white kids.

      This was meant to be a reply to your reply to my previous comment. I fail at commenting.

    This chocolate is the cutest! I would probably save the wrapper because it’s too good to get rid of once you eat the chocolate!

    Interesting about the algae in chocolate. I’d probably really like it since I love algae haha. And that lucuma bar sounds totally up my alley. Delicious 🙂

    Great packaging. Cute little dude too. Too bad about the alage flavor, I’d have been intrigued too.

    The lucuma gold bar sounds so wonderful! I’ve been a fan of lucuma for a while, and have added it to many of my own creations, but this sounds like a real treat. I’m going to have to find some of this chocolate for myself!

    Love this brand. Tasted it at festival once and now I pick up a bar at my local. Totally dig the softer textures and interesting flavour combos!!!

    After reading your post, I immediately followed the link to Pana Chocolate’s website and found a stockist just down the road from my work!!! I had my first raw, vegan chocolate experience last night and it was amazing! It was so rich and full of flavour and didn’t leave that icky taste in my mouth that other processed chocolates do. Unfortunately, the store didn’t sell the rose flavour so I had to make do with raw cacao. But I definitely take this as a sign to continue visiting the store (and sampling chocolates) until the rose one is available. xo

    What a whimsical treat. I hope it migrates up here.

    Passionate marmalade 🙂 Like a horny Paddington Bear. Sorry. sorry.

    you’re right, they do have the cutest mascot!!

    How lovely of your dad to be the middle man. I do like the sound of this chocolate but ‘blue green algae’ is a very strange name for a chocolate bar. When I was a teenager I had a friend with a swimming pool and one of her jobs was to scrub the blue green algae off the sides of the pool. I used to help her. At no time did we consider eating the algae xx

    You’re right, it is probably the cutest mascot to have ever existed.

    I bought a bar of Pana Chocolate (I think it was the coconut one) and I really wanted to like it, but… didn’t. I think the texture just didn’t do it for me.

  20. hungryandfrozen

    Eep! That mascot is so adorable. As is the thought of falling asleep enveloped by petals. As is passionate marmalade.

    I saw these new flavours at the shop and was wondering about the algae one! Anyhow, I still want to try them all, but the rose and lucuma definitely sound like they’d be more conventionally delicious. 😉

  22. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    Ooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! <3 And it has cute little figures on it! This alone makes me want to have it!!! 😀

  23. Ashley

    Oooh, I love Pana Chocolate! 🙂 I personally do like the algae flavour, athough I can’t put my finger on why. The Lucuma Gold looks interesting though! Will have to grab it next time I see it around!

  24. Catherine

    Oh my goodness! Only available in Australia? I’m dizzy reading this! I’m booking my flight!! Xcat

  25. Louise

    Oh I really want this now! Just checked out the Pana website. None available within 100km of me. Well that’s typical. It seems to be all over Sydney though. And I can mail order. I’ll have to remember this when we get back from Europe. This is the first time that a trip to Europe has seemed almost a nuisance! Not sure I’d have the gumption to order the algae though- I can only think of toxic algal blooms, and while I know that’s not what they’re using, it still makes it unappealing. But oh, the rose and the coconut/goji berry sound fab. I’d even give the lucuma a go.

  26. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Pana chocolate has definitely taken first place in my favoured raw chocolate stakes, although admittedly I haven’t tried that many brands. The mascot will keep it high regardless though I think 🙂 However, I have never seen these flavours! I’ll have to keep an eye out for the rose one…

    I actually love the blue algae one out of the the Pana chocolate variety. Could be because I grew up eating seaweed and the combination of that and chocolate for me is absolutely awesome. 🙂
