As a winner of a Good Taste Award, I expected a lot of this bar.  Assuming all bars I tried were entered and this alone won a gold, I was curious what kind of solid mint won gold.  As a ...

Seed and Bean Chilli and Lime Dark Chocolate Bar Review

Chilli is something of a fashion in chocolate of late.  There is a theme of going back to the way the Mayans had their chocolate around but frankly I like my chocolate roasted, well refined, conched & tempered.  Nonetheless there ...
