Hotel Chocolat 120h Conch Purist 65% Chocolate Bar

This bar, despite being from St Lucia as the other bar was, is completely different. From the first bite you can taste that this is a smoother chocolate that almost tastes more like milk chocolate. The graininess of ...

Hotel Chocolat Purist 96h Conch 65% Chocolate Bar

This is one of two chocolate bars from the new Purist range from Hotel Chocolat which features the conching time of the chocolate. This has been done in part to encourage people to savour the chocolate and also teach ...

Hotel Chocolat Alto El Sol 65% Peruvian Purist Chocolate Bar

Boasting red berries, raisins, vanilla and coconut, this chocolate bar had a lot to live up to. After the two 50% bars with their additives failed to shine through their chocolatiness (but yum loved those earl grey tea and ...

Purist 50% dash of milk 35g Chocolate Bar With Earl Grey Tea

This is another in the Purist range of chocolate bars. The bars, I’ve decided, are made to be chewed as opposed to melted in the mouth. Honest. I’ve been looking forward to reviewing this bar for some time. ...

Purist 50% dash of milk 35g Chocolate Bar With Caramel

Macallan Whisky and Artsan du Chocolat Whisky and Chocolate Pairing Event

A little while ago I went to a whisky and chocolate pairing. I’m not a big whisky drinker as I always saw it as a very unfeminine, masculine drink. The few tastings I have been to including the ...

World Demarquette Pure Blend 65%

I bought this chocolate bar some time ago and finally got around to trying it out. The flavour is delicate and pleasant and not at all too earthy or leathery.  It was slightly flat in my mouth but it was still ...

Artisan du Chocolat Tasting box

I got these lovely chocolates because it gave me a little bit of everything to try.  The box contained several chocolates all of very different flavours and they seemed almost perfectly chosen for me.  The box was delightful wrapped in ...

Rococo Rose Chocolate Bar

A dark chocolate bee bar that has a Turkish Delight flavour of rose.  It makes it not too floral and quite pleasant.  It’s like Turkish Delight without the chewy gooey bits. The dark chocolate doesn’t stand out on its own and ...
