Von Geusau Dark Cherry

Guest Chocablogger Natasha Faria is back with something interesting from South Africa… All of Von Geusau’s chocolates are well-packaged, but the colour-coded foil really adds a special bit of flair – as do the hand-written, colour-coded labels. From every aspect of …

Baker’s Select Romany Creams Balls

Guest Chocablogger Nastash Faria returns with some more South African treats… Baker’s is a company that was established in 1881 in South Africa. When South Africans think biscuits, we think Bakers. A favourite of mine are the Baker’s Romany Creams, so …

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 Tex
