Love Cocoa – Gin & Tonic Dark Chocolate and Honeycomb Crunch Milk Chocolate

Tis been a while since I posted a review (ahh, I've about 30 with notes and pics I'm yet to pull together), but I wanted to share a review of Love Cocoa after receiving 2 bars recently.

Goupie Selection – Date & Walnut, White Chocolate & Lavender, Salted Sticky Toffee

Something a bit different today, therefore the form of this review will be a little different. Usually, I'd try capture the intricate flavour nuances, mouth feel and aroma of the chocolate but these 'Goupie's' are more of a product containing chocolate rather chocolate being the main element so I've adapted it a little. So what … Continue reading Goupie Selection – Date & Walnut, White Chocolate & Lavender, Salted Sticky Toffee

But what are they, who are they? (Cocoa Republic that is). Well they appear a new British company founded … Continue reading Cocoa Republic Enchanted Forest

Niederegger Classic Double Chocolate Mini Loaves

The full name is 'Niederegger "Classic of the Year" Double Chocolate'.. I still don't quite know how to pronounce the name, and for this reason, it seems to stick. When I think of marzipan chocolate, Neideregger first comes to mind. PRICE I was fortunate enough to be sent these as a sample, but they retail … Continue reading Niederegger Classic Double Chocolate Mini Loaves
