Day 365 – Last day!

Oh wow, it’s already the 365th day of this chocolate blog and to finish we have a delicious piece from Frey’s – Dark Lemon and Pepper. An intriguing bar and flavour, it wasn’t a difficult choice on whether to get it or not. Frey’s is notorious for their quality Swiss chocolate and this one was no exception.

The tartness of the lemon is evident on the first bite and the subtle pepper lingers on the palate. A delightful piece to finish off the meal, an evening and even this blog!

Thanks for joining me on this journey and this is by no means the end! There are many more chocolates to discover and enjoy and I’ll take great pleasure in doing so.

Day 363 – Mint as

Peppermint creams, sweet minty fondant filling surrounded by a dark thick chocolate coating. You really can’t go wrong with these. Cadbury’s UK has certainly created a winner with Fry’s Peppermint Creams:

Day 361 – That chocolate thing

This name for Bubba Gump’s dessert cracks me up and I said it repeatedly before and throughout the meal, “I want that chocolate thing!” With a great view of the National Day fireworks, and celebrating a birthday, we were all in good spirits and filling up on the spread before us. But that didn’t stop me from remembering my core reason for being here. So when the dessert time came around I immediately stated what I wanted and it soon came along:

A chocolate flourless pudding with ice cream, whipped cream and chocolate sauce. The jar was overflowing and I didn’t hesitate to dig my spoon in. hmmm… it was rather disappointing! There wasn’t much pudding, and all my spoon fished out was the sauce, which seemed artificially thickened and flavourless. It wasn’t gluten free for sure. With deflated excitement, I poked around at the ice cream and sauce for a while and felt jipped.
