Valrhona Dulcey vs Caramac: Fight!

The launch of Valrhona's new 'blond' chocolate.

Nestlé KitKat Chunky

It's that time again.

KitKat Matcha Green Tea

Another crazy KitKat from Japan!

Orion Intense Blackberry

A 52% dark chocolate bar with blackberry pieces from one of Nestlé's eastern European brands.

Cooking Chocolate Face-Off

Some months ago, as I was wondering the aisles of my local Foodland, I found Nestlé Plaistowe 70% cooking chocolate. I was curious, but decided to come back to it some other time. Then, more recently, I found alongside it, Lindt …

KitKat Cola & Lemonade

It's time to look at some more wacky KitKats from Japan.

Win 35 Milkybar Raisin & Biscuit Bars!

Ok, so we didn’t care for them much in our review, but after Nestlé sent us a box of 36 Milkybars, we had to find something to do with the other 35 – so we’re giving them away! To enter our …

Nestlé Milkybar Raisin & Biscuit

What to say… what to say… When Nestlé’s PR send you a box of 36 Milkybars, it’s only polite to say something. Apparently, these are new, improved “adult” Milkybars, with added raisin and biscuit – and that makes them suitable for …

Wonka Exceptionals Scrumdiddlyumptious Chocolate Bar

“I’d like a bar of chocolate, please… whichever one’s the biggest.” Wise words, spoken by Mr. Charlie Bucket just moments before unearthing his Golden Ticket to Willy Wonka’s factory. The iconic Wonka bar itself can be difficult to track down (I …

Nestlé Noir L’Assortiment

I’ve always liked big boxes of chocolates – the impressive looking ones that you shouldn’t really buy for yourself because there are many other more sensible things to spend your money on. But this box was on sale and, let’s …

Nestlé KitKat Sparkling Strawberry

It’s time for the final review of our week of Japanese chocolates (‘Thank God!’, I hear you cry), and it’s only fair we end with one more KitKat. This time, a pretty little pink number. Once again, we have a heavily …

Nestlé KitKat Cookies + Chocolate Biscuit

The main reason I picked this particular variety of KitKat up from CyberCandy while ignoring such varieties as “Sweet Potato Flavor” was that it had a picture of the bar on the box, and it was quite definitely milk chocolate …

Nestlé KitKat Ohagi

It had to happen (mainly because I’ve been sitting on my own stash of KitKats for over a week). This is my first proper Japanese Kit Kat review (having shared duties with Dom on the Ito En Vegatable KitKat) and …

Nestlé KitKat Milk Coffee

It’s time for another KitKat form Japan, and once again, this takes the form of two pairs of individually wrapped white chocolate KitKat fingers. Part of me had been hoping for milk chocolate for a coffee flavoured KitKat, so I …

Nestlé KitKat Raspberry & Passion Fruit

How KitKat’s became so popular in Japan is a mystery to me. This simple little snack was originally created in Yorkshire by Rowntree’s in the 1930s, and for a long time didn’t do anything particularly interesting. For as long as I …

Nestlé KitKat with Ito En Vegetable Juice

Simon and I both had one of these ‘Vegetable’ flavour Japanese KitKats, so we thought we’d both give our opinion on it… Simon’s Take The first surprise comes when you split open the wrapper and discover that the contents are a remarkably …

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 …

Nestlé KitKat Mini Maple

KitKat time again! This time we have a bag of 13 mini KitKats from Japan supplied by J-List. I’m told this particular flavour is in honour of the Winter Olympics in Canada and is made with real maple syrup, but …

Nestlé KitKat Little With Chilli

It’s Japan week on Chocablog! Why? Because we said so! Also, because the lovely people at J-List sent us a big box of chocolatey fun from Japan.. and because Simon has been acquiring more goodies from his growing circle of Japanese …

Nestlé KitKat Cherry (Japan)

Time for another strange bar from my box of weird and wacky chocolate-related presents. This time, a Cherry KitKat. Or at least, I’m pretty sure that’s what it is because my Japanese is non-existent and I’m relying on the instantly …

Nestlé Milo Bar (South Africa)

Guest Chocablogger Natasha Faria is back with a look at the South African version of Nestlé’s Milo Bar. I understand that Milo is sold pretty much everywhere except Europe, but as far as I know, South Africa’s Milo bar is different …

Nestlé Butterfinger vs Reese’s Crispy Crunchy

And I’m back with yet another Reese’s offering, this time it’s “milk chocolate, peanut butter, crispy peanut butter candy and peanuts.” It sounded something like a Butterfinger, so I decided to do a side-by-side comparison. Butterfingers usually aren’t my favorite choice …

Nestlé KitKat 70% & Aero 70%

Well, this was a big surprise. It turns out that Canada, being the forward thinking country that it is, has taken it upon itself to pump up the cocoa solids in their KitKat and Aero bars to a whopping 70%. …

Nestlé Club Cashew Nut & Cherry

Mmmmmm, I hear you say. Cashew & Cherry. A fabulous combo in a family block from the supermarket. Lead me to them. Nestlé have been pushing Club chocolate for years, and recently we have had the packaging upgrade (cardboard just like …

KitKat Chunky Caramel

Way back in the mists of time (July 2006 to be precise), I reviewed KitKat Chunky Peanut Butter and found it to be one of the most awful chocolate bars I’d ever tasted. Judging by the comments on that particular …

Nestle Club Cashew Nut & Cherry

Nestlé have repackaged their Club Dark chocolate range and some of my favourites (sob) didn’t make the transition. Farewell, dear Mandarin, Club Cappuccino and Mild & Creamy – it was nice knowing you! But a new player has …

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 …

Nestlé Milo Nuggets

Milo, it seems, is sold pretty much everywhere except Europe. In fact, it’s so common in some parts of the world that my Ghanaian friend insisted it was an African thing… until I showed him this bag (from Malaysia) and …

Nestlé Baby Ruth

This American import was sent to us by HandyCandy. It describes itself as “Bursting with peanuts, rich caramel and chewy nougat” – which sounds a little familiar – and also informs me that it’s the “Official Candy Bar of …

Aero Mini Egg

Earlier this week, Nestlé’s PR people got in touch to ask if they could send us some samples of their new Aero Mini Egg… and within a couple of hours of giving them the details, a courier turned up with …

Nestlé Club Classic Fruit & Nut

Nestlé have been selling “Club” chocolate in the wide brown land of Oz for roughly forever. As my colleague and fellow enthusiast Kath has pointed out, the brand has had something of a revamp. Having tried the mixed berry, the …

KitKat Dark

There is a god after all. I’ve pontificated on before about the wonders of dark chocolate and yet I’ve always been partial to the odd KitKat or seven. Classic or chunky, they’re both good but to see it now available …

Orion Margot

Meet Margot. Margot comes from Slovenia, and to look at her you’d think she was a chocolate bar, but Margot has a little secret. Margot is actually a soya bar with coconut ‘coated with dark compound’. Not so appetising now, …

Galaxy Smooth Dark

It’s been a while since I wrote a review for Chocablog.  However, when Sainsburys gave me a free 125g bar of the new Galaxy Smooth Dark chocolate (and I’d already eaten through about half of it), I thought it would …

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 …

Nestlé Heaven Dark Vanilla Truffle

We’ve reviewed a few of Nestlé’s Heaven range before and so far our reaction has been positive, so I had high hopes for this – despite the fact that it was obvious when I bought it that the picture on …

Yorkie Raisin & Biscuit

I love specialty shops. You know the kind of place. Small, independent places that you find tucked away down some back street. Usually run by a slightly mad middle-aged woman who has turned her life-long passion for crocheted bunny rabbits …

Nestlé Black Magic Raisins & Almonds

About a month ago, we got an email from a reader in Ireland asking if we’d heard about Nestlé’s complete revamp of its “Black Magic” brand. In an effort to get with the times, and “after thorough market research”, Nestlé …

Nestlé Double Header

Coeur de Caramel au Beurre Demi-Sel & Coeur de Nougat How interesting to find Kath singing the praises of a Nestlé bar the day I decide to review these two offerings from France (bought in Spain, as it happens). Nestlé’s “Coeur De” …

Nestlé Club Classic Mixed Berry

Not to be outdone by Cadbury’s revamp of their dark chocolate Old Gold range, Nestlé too are still proudly flogging their ‘Club Classic’ dark chocolate varieties, and have introduced a ‘Mixed Berry’ flavour to the supermarket shelves. I really love Nestlé’s …

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 …

Nestlé Chocolate Log

This is the second of my South African purchases, and this one comes from Nestlé. The packaging describes it as “creamy marshmallow on a crisp wafer”, and being a fan of all things light and fluffy, I had high hopes for …

KitKat Senses

Other countries may get new KitKat varieties on a daily basis, but here in the UK it’s been a while since we’ve seen any new flavours. So I was pleasantly surprised when my routine scan of the local sweet shop …

Milky Bar Mini Eggs

It seems just about every major chocolate brand has an egg version around Easter these days. Obviously it’s really just a marketing exercise, but I still enjoy seeing the weird (and often pointless) products that like likes of Nestlé, Mars …

Smarties Mini Eggs Easter Egg

It’s Easter egg time again! This time we’ve got something a little cheaper than the Hotel Chocolat offerings we reviewed last week. And you can tell from a single look at the packaging that this egg is aimed at a …

Perugina Nero Sflogie 70%

In case you were wondering, this one’s Italian. Perugina are owned by Nestlé Italia, but don’t let that put you off. This is proper dark chocolate – a gift from a friend who recently took a long weekend in Italy. Florence, I …

Nestlé Heaven Dark Truffle Perles

I’m sure I can’t be the only one who looked at the packaging above and sighed at the word “Perles™”. I don’t know why they can’t just call them Pearls – or better still, just go with “Balls”. What’s wrong …

Nestlé Violet Crumble

‘It’s the way that it shatters that matters’ is the traditional catch-phrase for this famous Australian bar which has been around since 1913. ‘Violet’ was the inventor’s wife’s favourite flower, and the ‘crumble’ was the honeycomb. Apparently Mr Hoadley found …

Nestlé Aero

We might be anticipating the return of Cadbury Wispa at the moment, but it’s only fair we take a look at it’s older, slightly less fashionable cousin, Aero. Like Wispa, Aero is simply chocolate with bubbles in it. But the bubbles …

Nestlé Milo Bar

Milo – the powdery malty-chocolate stuff you mix in with milk – is very popular here in Australia. It’s a different mixture from what I remember getting in the UK – less powdery and a lot more crumbly and …

Aero Bubbles

Mint flavoured Aero bubble balls.

After Eight

Sweet dark chocolate with a mint filling.

After Eight Grand Marnier Straws

My first thoughts when I spotted these were along the lines of – “Surely some mistake?” and “Are they that desperate to increase their profits?” I was in Edinburgh – in Woolies of all places – when these intriguing little chocolate …

Aero Caramel

Here’s another variation on the chocolate + caramel theme that seems to be popular these days. Aero Caramel consists of layer of ‘bubbly’ Aero chocolate topped with a layer of caramel and all wrapped in smooth milk chocolate. The top of …

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 …

Nestlé Munchies

Milk chocolate sweets with biscuit and caramel.

Lion Bar

Lion Bar is another of those childhood favourites that brings back all sorts of good memories every time I buy it. It was introduced in the 1970s by Rowntree’s (makers of KitKat, Smarties and Aero amongst other things), who were …

KitKat Editions Tiramisu

I was so pleased when Dom drew the short straw and got to review the KitKat Chunky Peanut Butter. Like Dom, I’ve never been a lover of KitKats, despite the fact I am the daughter of the original KitKat Kid. …

KitKat Chunky Peanut Butter

‘A bit of a mouthful’. That’s the best way to describe this. Both in terms of the name and the contents of the bar. KitKat may be one of the best selling chocolate bars in the world, but I’m quite …

Mint Aero

Milk chocolate with a Mint Aero flavoured white chocolate centre.
