    These sound amazing Hannah. You definitely have a brother with a good eye for chocolate! I love the sound of the flavours, the packaging, and the shape of the chocolate pieces. I am also looking forward to hearing about the remaining 2 blocks!

    Do you save and frame the wrappers?

    You might say more traditional flavours but they still sound interesting and enticing – and the packaging is just so beautiful and so Australian – I still have never seen their chocolates about but am just spending too much time on the wrong side of melbourne – must amend this

    oh my! I adore your way with words, especially your way with chocolatey words. Am totally willing to believe there was a hint of freshly baked scone in your chocolate. Also, the shape of the bars is so pretty!

    I have a brother that lives in San Francisco. Does he send me Ghiradelli chocolate? No. He did bring me some Belly Flops from the Jelly Belly factory once.

    See how much nicer your brother is? Gorgeous chocolate!

    If you like the chocolate, you’ll LOVE the store! It’s a chocolate paradise.

    The pear and hazelnut one sounds amazing! And I love that you’ve tried this Australian chocolate before I have. Oh that’s right. You have a very good brother. Doh!

    Fascinating. We didn’t see those when we were there. Just the new square ones that your Dad wrote to you about, and the set that your big bro gave you last year (and gave his Dad this year). I’m hoping he’ll share some when we are in Thredbo,

    Oh and I love the art. Wunderbar,

    You do have a very good brother! I love the sound of the pear and hazelnut combo.

    My goodness this is torture. Diva daughter and I have just devoured a block of mediocre Swiss chocolate with almonds after some hard skiing…

    You do have a very very good brother, although mine bought us some great mulled wine!

    It is brothers like yours that make me wish I had a brother, or any sibling really 🙂 He is so wonderful sounding!

    I’ll say it again, brothers are the best! I agree, the shape of the chocolate is really appealing. Nice and um loggy.
    Delicious food that tugs at the heartstrings is even more wonderful than simply delicious food.

    Hey Angle Babe. If I send you some totally random flavours from the same Yarra Valley brand – will you eat them? Like really really random

    I love that your brother takes care of the Aussie chocolate cravings while you’re away. That is brilliant!

    Also, not that this affects taste in any way, but I like the tube shape of the blocks, rather than squares. I feel this could be dangerous, however, in that it would make the bar easier to handle, thus easier to break off a piece, thus easier to eat….?

  17. Ttrockwood

    First of all, your brother is awesome.
    And until i can get myself a dk chocolate pear hazelnut bar my life will remain unfulfilled…….

  18. Sarah

    Totally want that milk chocolate with macadamia and salted caramel!!!!!!!!!!

    You have an awesome brother. 🙂
