Day 236 – Big day

It’s a big day for my mummy… and though I didn’t get her any chocolate this year, a dear friend remembered my mum’s love for white chocolate and passed this on –

Delighted as she was, my mum got straight into them. I had to pass on thanks on her behalf as she was too busy munching away. Focusing on the important things at hand. Sounds familiar… well, I am my mother’s daughter.

Day 214 – Compromise

My mum’s love for white chocolate and mine for good chocolate such as Montezuma (see post #38) –

It was indeed creamy and white, almost like a Cadbury Dream bar (not a fan) but with a little more finesse. Maybe that’s just me attributing that to a Great British brand… oh well. My mum seemed to like it, and as far as white chocolate goes, that’s pretty good.

Day 195 – White is left

Since white is not right, does it make it left? Well in the case of what chocolates that I leave alone, they tend to be. I still haven’t found a white chocolate that I could consume copious amounts of in one sitting. It just makes me feel so sickly! I’m sure my mum begs to differ.

These are some of hers that I sampled, which brings us back to the Ritter brand which was mentioned a few posts back –

Smooth and creamy milk, the sweetness isn’t as bad as others we’ve had. But one square it enough for me. I’m happy to walk away from the table with a bar unfinished. It’s the white that’s left.

Day 139 – Noisy wrappers

I had the pleasure of presenting this to my mum tonight, a gift from a friend who remembered how much she adored white chocolate.

I heard the wrapper unfolding and opening in the other room and knew my mum wasted no time enjoying its contents. Whittaker’s White is smooth and creamy, and incredibly milky! Not the sweetest of whites that I’ve encountered, but this solidified milky cocoa mass melted evenly in the mouth. It was a sobering delight…

And sobering thoughts turn to family and friends in nz as they deal with the devastation from monday’s quake.. it certainly makes you appreciate life and loved ones.

Day 89 – Continuing the festivities

Never really the white chocolate fan, I didn’t indulge in this Lindor ball over the holidays, but picked up a mixed box the other day just to compare the flavours and also to keep the festive season going.

To be honest, I love them all so proceeded to unwrap and devour them in rapid succession. The white ones were not as sweet as I imagined them to be and were deliciously creamy and smooth. I saved a few for my mum as she’s an avid white chocolate eater… though before I could take any photos she had already finished them!! They certainly were good. Will have to get some more:)

Day 14 – Zesty & white

I just had to do a grocery run and as you do, you whip around the store picking up the basics – veg, dairy, pasta, cans… and then when it comes to the confectionary and snacks section, you start slowly meandering through the aisles. Or maybe it’s just me, I admit I have a love affair with supermarkets.

So I was taking my sweet time checking out the chocolate section trying to find something for today’s post, then BAM this caught my eye.

Mövenpick of Switzerland – Swiss Chocolate White Lemon. How grand does that sound? I particularly like their description:

WHITE LEMON – FOR CREATIVE MINDS ONLY
Because creative minds derive pleasure from their own ideas and enjoy developing new creations. Be tempted by a really special Mövenpick creation: enjoy WHITE LEMON, the fascinating combination of white Swiss chocolate and refreshing pieces of lemon, rounded off with a subtle hint of pepper.

Though I’m not one to go for white chocolate as you may have already figured (they’re too sweet!) my mum prefers it so thought this would be a lovely ‘treat for her and at the same time be a new subject to sample.

And what a treat it was for me too! The fine bar comes wrapped in gold foil (I always like when they do this) and I accidentally broke off 4 sections to try, hey they were smaller than I expected! Either way, it was absolutely divine! Sweet, zesty lemon and lime and the hint of cracked pepper brought out the flavours beautifully. It was incredibly creamy and it was like having the smoothest and lightest cheesecake melt in my mouth. I understand why they suggest small servings.. but it didn’t stop me having a few more pieces before passing it to my mum.

Less than 15mins later, I went back and had a few more pieces.. just two. Definitely recommend having it chilled, but heed the warning, being white chocolate it is super sweet, so stick to the sections.
