Philadelphia Candies Milk Chocolate French Mints

Isn’t it supposed to be as you get older that your taste preferences move away from the sweeter products and you are more likely to appreciate the nuances of dark chocolate? Yet I seem to be moving in the opposite …

Nakd Cocoa Bars

We all know that chocolate is good for you (it’s only when you start adding sugar and milk powder that things go downhill), but there do seem to be more and more health foods using chocolate as an ingredient lately. These …

John & Kira’s Urban Garden Bars

Most of us know by now about the ethical choices chocolate-makers can stand by; we also know that no matter how many stamps, seals, and labels a chocolate has, taste still matters. I am happy, therefore, to introduce you to …

Just Us Midnight Mint

On the episode of The Simpsons where Homer forms a barbershop quartet, there’s a conversation when the foursome are trying to come up with a name which states they picked one which was funny the first time anybody heard it, …

Rococo Moroccan Mint

Here’s a little something I liberated from the Rococo stand at the Speciality and Fine Food Fair. It’s a 65% organic dark chocolate bar with organic mint, and comes in a brightly coloured wrapper, the design of which is inspired …

Chocolate Cafe Dark Chocolate With Mint

This is the third and final bar I received from The Chocolate Cafe a while back. It’s a simple dark chocolate flavoured with mint. As with the other bars, it’s presented in a simple but elegant paper wrapper, that really …

Mint Chocolate Buzz Bites

For a long time now, I’ve suspected that Lee has been trying to kill me. And now, in what initially seemed like a thoughtful gift of some chocolate chews, my suspicions have been confirmed. This cute little tin contains six mint …

Mama’s Chocolate & Mint Cream Fudge

Here’s something I picked up at my local farmers market on a very hot day in Finchley. It was my first visit to the market and I wasn’t expecting to see anything chocolate related, especially on the hotest day of …

Lindt Essence Assorted Selection

I’ve been itching to try these since seeing them appear on our Supermarket shelves some time ago – a new (?) Lindt offering! Or at least – one I’d not come across before. The small bag contains filled chocolates; to quote …

Leda Minton

Today brings another sampling of the staple food of the chocolate fiend: the Chocolate Mint biscuit. I spotted the Leda Minton “(Now with a DARK CHOC coating)” in my local supermarket the other day, and thought it was worth a try …

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 …

Cadbury Bubbly

No, it’s not champagne, but Cadbury’s very cheeky and blatant copy of Nestlé’s classic Aero bar. Why Nestlé didn’t register names such as the obvious ‘Bubbly’ to protect their product is beyond me, but it’s taken Cadbury many years to either …

Kshocolât Mini Cube Gift Set

After this set made its way home with me, I realized it had a familiar name, being none other than the trice-reviewed, twice-accused brand. That was enough to make me a little edgy as I started opening the black boxes. The …

Alter Eco Dark Chocolate Mint

Organic, Fair Trade, mint flavoured dark chocolate.

Wawel Danusia

Just recently, the Lady Of The House and I visited the Adelaide Central Market. In our small town, this is the place for fresh food and Strange Things. Many of the stalls sell chocolate goodies, there are chocolate fountains, and …

Nestlé Golden Rough / Mint Pattie

Like the Wagon Wheel, Chomp, Polly Waffle and Violet Crumble; Golden Roughs and Mint Patties have been around for as long as I can remember (at least 35 out of my 40 years). However, I couldn’t remember when I’d …

Nestlé Club Classic Peppermint Cream

Eldest Son has been berating me for converting him to the Dark Side. He doesn’t much like milk chocolate any more, and at age 15, he’s pretty unimpressed that something he used to enjoy is not seen as so flash …

3 Musketeers Mint

Dark chocolate with a fluffy mint flavoured filling.

Republic of Tea Spicy Chocolate Mint

When I bought this, I actually thought it was hot chocolate. It wasn’t until I got home that I saw the teapot on the front. And I thought I had examined it fairly carefully. At least I was right about …

Duchy Originals Bezants

I’ll confess, I actually had to look up the word ‘bezant‘ to discover its true meaning. For those who are as uneducated as me, it’s a form of medieval gold coin. But I’m glad I took the time to look …

Stainer Marrakech

This is another in Stainer’s ‘spice’ selection, and probably the one that had me the most intrigued when I read what the ‘Marrakech Mixture’ constituted. This is a 70% dark chocolate bar with a mixture of Green Tea, Nanah Mint, Wormwood …

Thorntons Mint Bar

Here’s another of Thorntons‘ (so far quite yummy!) range of bars. This time it’s “Milk chocolate finished with dark chocolate, with a crunchy peppermint truffle centre”. So let’s see what it’s like… Well first impressions are good. Nothing too extraordinary, but …

After Eight 70% Bar

In the past, Simon & I have reviewed After Eight and After Eight Grand Marnier Straws, and in both cases we’ve noticed something missing on the packaging; an indication of cocoa content. Instead, Nestlé prefers to call After Eights simply …

Lindt Lindor Peanut Butter Balls

Matt-tastic from Lindt never lets me down. He popped into Choco-Locketts the other day to present me with two clear boxes of Lindt Lindor Balls. The first box, was filled with some bronzed little chaps I’ve heard about …

Mint-Tastic M&Ms

Mars Confectionery Australia continue to puzzle me, they really do. Whilst they won my heart with their introduction of dark M&Ms (now and always a Lockett family pantry staple); they stomped on it again when they said that they didn’t …

Skelligs Mint Brittle

When the lovely people at Skelligs and Cocoa Bean sent me my box of goodies, I found this brown paper bag nestled among the more traditionally packaged treats. The tag told me that it contained a chocolate ‘bark’ (a term …

Nestlé Peppermint Crisp

This is the last of my current batch of South African chocolate, and probably my favourite. Peppermint Crisp is a bar of Nestlé milk chocolate with a crispty Kryptonite “peppermint crackle” centre. While the filling resembles something that would make Superman …

Heavens Above Dark Chocolate With Oil Of Mint

Last week I looked at a milk chocolate Heavens Above with coffee, so I thought I’d look take a look at a dark chocolate one this week. As you can see, the packaging is pretty similar, with another retro photo with …

Newman’s Peppermint Thins

Every now and then a ‘freebie’ arrives – this time via an apology from our grocery delivery service, but more often it’s a Kris Kringle or unexpected gift – and I realise just what a choco-snob I’ve become. Newman’s have been …

Summerdown Pure Mint Chocolate Peppermint Creams

When those lovely people at Chocolates Direct sent me the Dolfin bars for review, they also included an extra treat in the form of this rather attractive blue box of peppermint creams. I must admit that I haven’t eaten a …

Whitakers Mint Wafers

According to their web site, Whitakers have been around since 1889, so they’ve had plenty of time to get things right. Mint Wafers are traditional after dinner mint chocolates, in the same style as After Eight. In fact, when you open …

Conscious Chocolate Finale

Conscious Chocolate Best Ever Hint of Mint The ninth to be sampled in the Conscious Chocolate range and one I find myself liking rather a lot. Using organic peppermint essence in the dark chocolate base gives this bar a refreshing ‘blast of …

After Eight

Sweet dark chocolate with a mint filling.

Cadbury Dairy Milk Mint / Orange Chips

These two bars are the latest additions to the ever expanding Cadbury Dairy Milk range. Both bars consist of standard Dairy Milk chocolate embedded with crunchy flakes of flavoured candy. The first thing you notice about these bars is that the shape …

Mint Munchies

Following the Chocstress’s (repeatedly) disappointing experience with Munchies, I thought I’d spare her the Mint Munchies review and do it myself. However, being somewhat more restrained, I managed to limit myself to a single packet rather than her… er… 7 packs. Prior …

Mint Aero

Milk chocolate with a Mint Aero flavoured white chocolate centre.
