Charbonnel et Walker Delicious Art

Mr Ramsey Finchley London Mrs Minnie Walker 173 New Bond Street London 1st February 1878 My Dearest Mrs Walker I do hope this note finds you in good health. It has been some time since we last corresponded, but Mme. Charbonnel informed me of your recent dalliance with …

Divine Dark Chocolate With Ginger & Orange

Despite having had Divine chocolate in cocktails and brownies recently, it’s been a while since we’ve reviewed any of their actual bars, and being a bit of a ginger fan, I thought I’d give this one a try. This is a …

Devnaa Signature Chocolates

Devnaa is a brother and sister partnership producing “Indian Inspired” chocolates and confectionery in the UK. As you can see first impressions are great, with beautiful brightly coloured packaging that immediately makes you want to open the box. The one …

Hotel Chocolat Gingerbread Liquid Chocolate

This is part of Hotel Chocolat’s new winter range, and was one of many items in our goody bag at their Christmas launch event waaaaaay back in July. The idea of gingerbread hot chocolate sounds amazing to me. I’m a …

Delicaseys Ginger Crisp

A few months ago I received a present of three selections from Delicaseys Sydney chocolate range. The first two were exceptionally good. Like a child with a favourite food, I put what I thought would be my favourite aside to …

Chocolats Geneviève Grandbois Le Carré Pain D’épices

While Montreal’s Chocolats Geneviève Grandbois make spectacular chocolates, I really wasn’t sure if their fine touch would apply to their bars of chocolates too. But I really needed to know, so I picked out one from a range that also …

Matcha Chocolat Lotus Selection

Another season is upon us, which means another collection of tea-based chocolates from Katie Christoffers’ Matcha Chocolat. The presentation is exactly the same as previous collections – the box hasn’t changed at all – only the contents have changed. Well… most …

Zaabär Star Anise of China & Ginger From Goa

When faced with a wall of chocolate in a shop, most of which is unfamiliar, it is hard to know which ones to buy. My head says I should go for a flavour which I either like a lot or …

Côte d’Or Lemon Ginger & Passion Fruit

The selection of chocolate bars available at the non-specialist shops in town in pretty stagnant – all the usual things from the usual suspects and that’s about it. And while it is rather nice to be able to pick up some …

Niko B Organic Chocolates Selection

Anthony Ferguson is an American chocolate maker who up until 2001 was working for Silicon Graphics in San Francisco. These days, he’s living in Hackney with his British wife and running a chocolate company named after his son Nikolas. I met …

Artisan du Chocolat Ginger & Lemongrass Milk Chocolate

Back in October, Simon reviewed Artisan du Chocolat’s Mole Poblano, a sibling to this bar. Like the Mole bar, this Ginger & Lemongrass one has some notes from Artisan’s Gerard Coleman on the back of the box: “According to traditional Chinese …

Nestlé KitKat Ginger Ale

I picked up this particular KitKat in CyberCandy’s London store. I didn’t let the staff know who I was, so I actually had to pay for it (shocking!). I will say that it’s a nice little shop, clean and well …

Ubuntu Ginger

This is the second of the Ubuntu bars I picked up at the Taste of Christmas show in December. The format is exactly the same as the ultra clovey Orange Spice bar I’ve already reviewed – a small, solid block …

Butlers Organic 70% Dark with Ginger Pieces

My sister-in-law recently made a quick trip to Ireland (as you do), and clearly knows me too well. The chocolate ginger reputation is well and truly preceding me. In her travels she discovered Butlers of Dublin who claim to be “Purveyors …

Galler Les Terriennes

This is the final ‘chapter’ in Galler’s ‘Elements’ range, and this selection reflects Earth flavours. Having experienced the flavours of the sea with Les Marines, floral flavours to reflect Air, and fiery, peppery chocolates for Fire, I was very much …

Ernest Hillier Ginger

Time again for the Picky Ginger Freak – that’s me – to try another offering and see what it’s like. Ernest Hiller proudly proclaims on his pack to have been in business since 1914, presumably they must be doing something right …

Bendicks Bittergingers, Bitteroranges & Bittermints

Wel this is interesting. This new range of ‘after dinner’ chocolates from Bendicks seem to be more than a superficial rebranding. Rather than just change the packaging a little, they’ve introduced this new “Bitter” range of dark chocolates with a …

Ginger Chocolate Face-Off: Round 2

Back in 2007, Simon compared two ginger bars in a head to head review. Now we have two more ginger bars and it’s time for Round 2… You know you’re going to have a fantastic day when you spot two new …

A Spoonful of Sugar Chocolate Ginger

My friend and colleague Don has been visiting from Australia’s Deep North – in this case, it’s not as far north as one can go, but Townsville, in tropical Far North Queensland. Land of Bananas, Tea plantations, Coffee, Australia’s own …

Thorntons Ginger Bar

It’s been a while since I reviewed anything from Thorntons, but having just discovered this buried in the depths of my chocolate stash, I thought I should review it before the ‘best before’ date (or some visitor scoffs it …

Paul A. Young Stem Ginger & Cardamom Pavé

The final offering from the Chocablog raid on Paul A. Young’s shop in Islington, this pavé is made from 64% Ecuadorean cocoa dark chocolate. Add to that the ususal suspects (soya lecitihin, a little vanill, cocoa butter) and Chinese Stem …

Camaya Dark Slabs

These 60% dark chocolate slabs from Camaya are just two examples of what they’re producing for lovers of darker flavours. The ginger and orange slab comes studded with small wedges of candied orange and has the ginger element concealed in the …

Ballantyne Ginger Lovers

I’ve had a long fascination with chocolate ginger – for me it is just one of those combinations that works really, really well – provided a rich dark chocolate is used. Knowing this, The Lady Of The House was very …

Dagoba Chai

This bar was approached with a fair amount of trepidation after the severe disappointment of Dagoba’s 68% cocoa-content dark chocolate with hemp seeds. Was this one destined to go the same way? After all, it was starting a …

Dolfin ‘Fancy Lemon Feeling’

This is something I picked up ages ago whilst on my travels. It’s a 60% bittersweet chocolate with lemon and ginger (as you can see) and it’s a companion bar to the range I reviewed earlier this year- most of …

Newman’s Ginger Treat

I love chocolate (of course) and I love ginger almost as much but in every form – sweet, savoury, fresh, crystallised, dried, powdered and especially coated in top quality dark chocolate. I’ve eyed off the Newman’s Ginger Treats for …

James Hot & Spicy Ginger & Chilli Chocolates

Here we have another John Lewis special. One of those things that comes in a pretty box but invariably ends up not being worth the money. But in this case, the box was particularly pretty and I’m a fan of …

Co-Op Fairtrade Dark Chocolate With Spices & Orange Oil

Here in the UK the Co-Op has always been at the forefront of the Fairtrade movement, and nowadays it sells more Fairtrade chocolate than all of the other supermarkets put together. For over five years the Co-Op has been working …

Harmony ‘Rype’ Fruit Centres

The ex-high school English teacher within me tends to avoid buying products that deliberately mis-spell common words, so I had seen these ‘Plantation Rype’ boxes for a while before giving in and buying some. The ‘Rype’sters eventually won me over because …

Stainer Fjordo

This is another one of Stainer’s chocolate bars blended with herbs and spices (part of the same family as the White Chocolate with Madras Spice), and the ‘subtitle’ says it’s a speciality of Northern Europe. As you can see, it …

Cocoa Tree Ginger Organic

You can probably tell from the photograph above why this bar caught my eye. You can see the bar through the packaging and it’s absolutely packed with crystallised ginger. It must have made an impact because I bought this without …

Whittards Hot Chocolate with Ginger

I bought this around Christmas time (when I was on my hot chocolate fact finding mission on behalf of Chocablog) with the intention of brewing up a cup or two and giving you an in depth review. At £4.50 a …

NewTree ‘Sexy’ Chocolate

Having made the discovery that NewTree ‘Tranquility‘ is both healthy and child proof, I have been quite keen to sample other bars from their range. NewTree have decided to give their range of bars single word names, and so we …
