    I love Hazelnut praline chocolate. It’s a total classic maybe not that exciting for others but for me it’s totally irresistable! Whenever I get a box of chocolates they’re always the first to disappear.

  3. nikki hilton says:

    it’s got to be a brand new one i tried called: Forever Cacao- it’s Raw, Dark, Organic- and sweetened with Coconut sugar- it’s amazing- and very different from anything i’ve tried before……. only thing is- eat small amounts at a time, cuz it’s so rich!

  4. Tracey Peach says:

    I love all chocolate in fact you could call me a chocoholic. My favourite chocolate is a hard question for me as all chocolate is lovely. But I think I have to say Cadbury’s Caramel is the one I love the most. I love the soft, tasty toffee covered in thick cadbury’s chocolate.

  5. Luke Bowes says:

    Favourite has to be galaxy chocolate because it’s smooth and creamy, however looking to expand out of commercial brands and to try new things!

  6. Melissa Wash says:

    I love salted caramel chocolate especially when made into a Brownie! The sweet sweet caramel and chocolate hits those taste buds first then the kick of saltyness gets them tingling even more! A fab combination!

  7. Natalie says:

    Côte d’Or Noir Amandes currently being ´dégusté’ – perfect with any beverage and no excuse needed!

  8. Michelle Lam says:

    I love sugar free milk chocolate bars, does wonders at uplifting my mood and fits my dietary requirements.

  9. Alison Joyce says:

    I love chocolate and sea salt, the salt makes the chocolate even sweeter.

  10. Hailee Jefferson says:

    I love any chocolate that has coffee or hazlenut in it. If I could find both together that would make me very happy

  11. Zoe says:

    My favourite chocolate has to be the Hotel Chocolat caramel batons. They are the creamiest, smoothest chocolate I have ever tasted and the caramel isn’t so sweet that overpowers the chocolate. I have been told they now also do the salted caramel batons, time for a visit to my local..

  12. Julie says:

    It has to be Galaxy- but any chocolate would do!

  13. Cheryl M says:

    Hotel Chocolat’s salted caramels. The combination of rich, delicious chocolate, salt and soft, smooth caramel is irresistible – salt, fat and sugar all together!

  14. I really love chocolate Cadbury Thorntons nestle Lindt any chocolate aslong as its thick creamy I love it! New fave is Cadbury with daim a new fave the best choch to invent would maybe be an everlasting one so you get more pleasure for longer 😉

  15. Hayley Mulgrove says:

    I love white choc it is so silky and i put a square in my mouth and have a drink of hot tea to melt it, i can never bite it cause as am getting older it givs me tooth ach so i have to suck on it these days but i still love it all the same. x

  16. Heather Cain says:

    Old Jamaican Rum nothing like the alcoholic taste mixed with the raisins and choccie ooooh dreamy.

  17. rachel higgins says:

    my favourite is kinder beauno. love the insides and crispy wafer covered by smooth chocolate

  18. Dani says:

    I love 100% dark chocolate from Michel Cruizel. It is smooth, flavorful and full of heath benefits!

  19. Maria says:

    I love Lindor snowflakes! They’re delicious, cute and perfect for sharing (even though they’re so good that it’s hard to share)!

  20. Mark says:

    I like Dark Chocolate with Raspberries as the taste combination is simply exquisite

  21. Sandy says:

    The Lindt Orange Intense bar will cheer me up any day!

  22. Erika says:

    I love the orange milk chocolate from Divine; it’s so smooth and creamy and melts on my tongue in the most luxurious and satisfying way and it has just the right amount of orange flavour to really set it apart. I like to roll a piece around my mouth – it makes it seem like you have a lot more than one piece (hope my dentist doesn’t read this though, haha!). Of course, now I’m salivating and I don’t have any!!!

  23. Zoe says:

    I love Green & Blacks Butterscotch bars. The lovely creamy chocolate goes wonderfully with the slightly burnt toffee taste of the butterscotch. It’s like a Diam Luxe! It helps that it’s sustainably sourced and organic, too.

  24. vivian allman says:

    only the crumbliest, flakiest chocolate, tastes like chocolate ever tasted before………………flake

  25. Michelle Wragg says:

    Oooh, chocolatey chocolateness! Anything but white chocolate takes me straight to the Willy Wonka chocolate factory in my head!

  26. Kay Sheridan says:

    I love comfortable mailk chocolate. It’s comfortable, dependable and a friend when needed!

  27. Caroline Richards says:

    I love any good quality chocolate, particularly Belgian and Swiss chocolate of around 72% cocoa, although I also like milk chocolate, depending on my mood! My favourite way of eating it is in the form of a chocolate fondue, with fresh fruits to dip in. Melted chocolate just seems to taste so much better!

  28. Gael Sauvajon-Lesslar says:

    I adore Galak which is a French type of White Chocolate and also any chocolate with biscuits bits or hazelnut in it! Yum Yum!

  29. Phoebe says:

    I love Lindt Dark Chocolate Caramel with a Hint of Sea Salt. The sweet/salty combination means the flavours evolve throughout a mouthful and it is so moreish!

  30. Bernie says:

    I love artisan chocolates – always feel like a real treat to me. The thrill of treating myself once the kids are in bed is immense – The range available now is so huge I love the excitement of trying new flavours – anything with nuts in it is a huge hit with me.

  31. Natalie Henderson says:

    My absolute favourite is Green and Black’s Butterscotch Milk Chocolate. It is just so smooth and buttery tasting, I feel like I need to be alone to eat it!!! 🙂
