Spring is in the air and chocolate is in my belly. Which means it’s time for a chocolate review roundup, woohoo! Here we go….
- Japanese Kit Kat part 2:
Three more unusual flavours from my variety box:
A) Chilli pepper- basically dark choc kitkat with a slight chilli tingle afterwards. Yum. 5 chillis out of 5
B) Edamame: nothing special, it strangely tastes quite similar to caramel kitkat. 3 paws out of 5
C) Strawberry cheesecake: smells slightly cheesy when first opened. Tastes EXACTLY like strawberry cheesecake. Very nice. 4 cayks out of 5
2. Pixie Caramel Original (New Zealand)
This bills itself as “the longer lasting chew”. Let’s see…
*Bites*… *chew…. chew…. chewing still…. more chewing…………*
5 minutes later *Swallow*.
Phew, that IS a big chew! Tasty caramel, lovely crumbly milk chocolate. I reckon even Russell Crowe’s jaws would struggle with this. But it is very yummy so I give it 4 gladiators out of 5.
3. Willie’s Cacao Ginger Lime (Cuban Baracoa 65)
OH MY BEAR THIS IS SOMETHING ELSE!
*Takes another bite* WOWSER. THE SECOND BITE IS EVEN MORE EXTRAORDINARY!
I do not even know where to even begin with this. It’s like an explosion of rich dark chocolate with lime and ginger running around the explosion looking for somewhere to hide, but they can only find your tastebuds. So they hide in your tastebuds and then the tastebuds say, “this is so wrong and yet so right, give me MORE!”
6 mojitos out of 5. Wonderful!
