In another life I would be a professional chocolate taster; in another life I would also have a model’s figure…
While I was in Australia I got an email from a workmate which said
“a package of chocolate has arrived for you from Norway. What do you want me to do with it?” (the ruin of an international surprise is the customs form!!).
I promised that if she locked it up in her cabinet I would share the chocolate with her when I got back. That was before I realised how much I was going to have to share 🙂 There was a wonderful selection to sample (here is the package minus a bar – a Stratos which was a malted chocolate and which was devoured before I thought to get my camera out!) …
So for 5 days now we’ve cut a bar in half and evaluated the chocolate. So far the nicest has been the Cuba – lovely texture and smooth taste. The bar with the coolest wrapper (the Nero) was disappointing as I discovered it was chocolate coated licorice and I hate licorice – my friend was pleased as she got that entire bar!
The tasting continues this week as we have 1 bar left and 4 blocks (each block is big enough to be consumed over a couple of days – at least that’s the plan for now….)
