Chocolate – all the way from New Zealand!

Uncategorized | September 19, 2011 | By

I entered a giveaway on The Kitchen Maid blog to celebrate the 1st Birthday of Lucy’s blog.  There were loads of prizes and I was lucky enough to win two bars of Whittakers Dark Almond Chocolate.  I arrived home today to a parcel from New Zealand and there were my two giant bars of choc!
It’s a long way from New Zealand but the chocolate had survived very well.  Possibly due to the fact that these aren’t your wimpy thin bars like the ones we get here. These are great big slabs of thick, dark chocolate absolutely stuffed with almonds.
Obviously we had to sample it in order to tell you what it was like, well it would be rude not to.  So what is it like?  To be honest, my first thought was that it tasted just like French and German chocolate, dark and not too sweet.  Mr Farmer was particularly taken with it and I can see that I am going to have to hide it away or he will be eating it at every opportunity!

Thank you very much Lucy, it’s so nice when giveaways are open to people all over the world and you get a chance to taste something new and different.

    It has NUTS in it! I go mad for nuts in chocolate!

    Jealous, I love trying things like this. Hope you enjoy it – or what's left over when Mr Farmer has found it!

    Hurrah! So pleased it arrived in one piece – and yes, they are very solid bars, which is why NZers are such solid types (I mean, have you seen the All Blacks recently?!)
    Thanks for your support of my blog,

    Congratulations – the choc sounds fab. During the 6 months I spent in NZ the only chocolate I ate was cadbury's.
