Find of the week:


This ridiculously expensive Blanxart Chocolate (which I bought primarily for the cool, block-printed looking packaging). There are several varieties, but this one is supposedly like vintage Spanish chocolate used raw or in hot milk. The ingredients are basically cocoa and sugar (and one other thing, I can't remember) so it doesn't melt smoothly like one is used to - it is a bit coarse, with small pieces of cocoa - which my daughter (who is a sweet, milk-chocolate afficiando) didn't like at all, but I found quite yummy!

I always thought i was the only girl who did not like hot chocalate. Until I discoved carbinell and walker. So understand your duaghter liking sweet chochalate. Love the wrapper.

Your studio looks great. Glad your having fun in the garden. We have a couple of nut hatches coming to the bird feeder outside the bedroom window. Very Audry Hepburn.

Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog today! I love unusual 'foreign' chocolate too. I wish Hershy would take lessons... although then they would have to raise the prices... I buy for packaging too, like wine, I never know what to get, so I go for the pretty ones...

I only eat chocolate occasionally and it has to be at least 70% - and I do get swayed by packaging...that Spanish bar looks delicously dark...

I have had a Hershy 'kiss'. I'm sorry, but it was vile...:(
