Matcha Chocolat Mixed Selection

This first anniversary box represents something of a departure for Matcha, with more of the chocolates inspired by other herbs and spices.

Cadbury India Temptations Raisin & Apricot

I spotted this bar as I left India last year, and to be honest my main reason for purchasing it was to see if Cadbury India were using palm oil and other nasties in their confectionery.

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. …

Gorvett & Stone Rum & Raisin Truffles

Time for another little box of chocolates from Henley’s Gorvett & Stone. This time we have a box of twelve 40% milk chocolates with a rum and raisin ganache made from 70% dark chocolate. As with Gorvett & Stone’s other …

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 …

Zotter Cheese, Walnuts & Raisins

Cheese may be a slightly odd thing to put into a bar of chocolate, but it’s not quite as odd as bacon. And besides, some of us eat cheesecakes every day, so it can’t be that bad, right? Still, Austrian …

Hotel Chocolat Magnificent Heart

Another heart-shaped Hotel Chocolat product for Valentines, and this time it’s a 70% cocoa dark chocolate creation studded with fruit and nuts. Before we continue with this, I feel I ought to pout this particular item into perspective. Yes, it’s …

Cadbury Clusters

From the same stable as Cadbury Raisins comes another totally-un-resealable bag of vaguely disturbing looking stuff. This time we have chocolated coated raisins (original, huh?) with the addition of corn flakes and smushed into ‘clusters’. Like their raisin-only counterparts, these …

Cadbury Raisins

I’ve always had a soft spot for chocolate coated raisins, but I don’t think I’ve seen a bag as big as this before. 200g in a supposedly resealable bag that doesn’t actually work and forces you to eat them all …

Chocolate Cellar Tiffin Biscuits

This little bag of goodies turned up on my doorstep the other day with no details and no explanation. Needless to say, I felt it my duty to give them a good home, and with a little bit of research, …

Thorntons Hazelnut & Raisin

Another Thornton’s block has arrived on my doorstep. Sometimes I think these things are breeding and attempting to take over the world, the range is so big. This one is a 32% Madagascan milk chocolate with hazelnut & raisin in …

Lindt Classic Raisin & Nuts

A box with chocolate inside is a wonderful thing to find at your door when you get up in the morning, even if it’s already expected. In my excitement, I had to get the photo shoot done and try some …

Cadbury Bournville Old Jamaica

Bournville chocolate with run and raisin

Hotel Chocolat Fruit & Nut Christmas Wreath

I love Hotel Chocolat. Everything they do is of exceptional quality and beautifully presented. But I like them most when they come out with something completely outlandish, indulgent and just plain weird. So as you might have guessed, I particularly …

EZA Compañera Cashew & Raisin Fairtrade

EZA Fairer Handel GmbH (to give them their full title) “is a fair trade organization dealing with marginalized producer groups from developing countries. It was founded in 1975 and since then it has been by far the most important fair …

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 …

Cadbury Old Gold

After giving Cadbury a good old bollocking for their disastrous ‘Desserts’ range, it is nice to be able to do a complete 180-degree turn and review their dark chocolate range. Here in Oz it is released under the ‘Old Gold’ …

Cadbury Picnic

Peanuts, raisins and caramel in milk chocolate.

Ritter Sport Rum Raisins Hazelnuts

Milk chocolate with rum, raisins and hazelnuts
