Billionaire philanthropist. Collector of super yachts and cars by day, secret crime fighter by night. Always seen out at the hippest parties with an incredibly handsome male model on her arm. None of these words can be used to describe Ella, my lovely guest reviewer today. But you know what? She bakes an EXCELLENT cup cake and she makes a certain human very happy, so that makes her pretty awesome in my books. So thank you Tourguide Ted and Reddy T for sending me this lovely chocolate bar to review, and without further ado take it away Ella:
Apparently you need more than one word for a chocolate review so here goes.
As a veggie I wasn’t sure I was impressed being handed a bar of Haggis spice chocolate. But horray – there’s no nasty animal parts involved, just some spices (should have read the name a bit more carefully really). Being a bit of a dark chocolate snob I was still not sure I would be raving about it but the wrapper is pretty so it was a good start. And it comes from Scotland which is one of my favourite parts of the world so I put my snobbery aside and tucked in with an open-ishmind.
My first thought was “Yeah that tastes like pretty nice dark chocolate”. My second was “Oh, yeah, spices”. Closely followed by “Thank god it doesn’t taste of haggis”. The spicey-ness builds a bit with each bite and helps stop it getting too rich so you can eat more. And more. And then a bit more.
And the nice thing is even a few minutes after you eventually stop (Maybe because you’ve got that kind of will power. Maybe because you got distracted by a hot air balloon flying past your window. Maybe because you finished the bar and there aren’t any crumbs left in the wrapper…) you can still kind of taste it.
And even if you aren’t sure spicey dark chocolate is for you (apparently some weirdo folk prefer milk chocolate) the wrapper really is very pretty so you could always enjoy looking at it.”- Ella
Hmm… seeing hot air balloons floating past your window? Are you sure it was just ‘spices’ added to the chocolate? And don’t think I didn’t see that milk chocolate dig, grrr…! But a big thank you for guest reviewing a very interesting flavoured chocolate bar. To add my five cents, although not the biggest fan of dark chocolate, this was very nice and I will personally give it 4 paws out of 5.
