I think I have a fairly healthy relationship with chocolate, I don't have to eat it on a regular basis, can go weeks without any and make my Christmas chocolate gifts last for ages. I used to love plain dark chocolate but as I got older I've drifted back to Cadbury's Dairy Milk as my bar of choice.
So I was a bit surprised when Mr FF came home with a packet of dark chocolate with orange and chilli for me, surprised enough to say I probably wouldn't like it. Made by Oddfellows Chocolate Co I loved it and am hooked, a little goes a long way which is just as well as it doesn't seem so easy to find other than by mail order. Mr FF bought mine at the Bradford Beer Festival, the various flavours of chocolate being recommended as pairing well with real ales and ciders, a combination I haven't tried.
I mentioned my new taste discovery to friends recently and they gave me a bar from Hotel Chocolat which is probably more readily available, delicious but not quite as warming.
And can I just show you these which are another favourite, something to do with the way they melt I think, to me the chocolate seems to drop in temperature. Have a happy chocolaty Easter weekend, I shall selflessly be sampling my Danish marzipan and liquorice eggs on your behalf.
