William Curley Sea Salt Caramel Bar

If you wanted to buy a bar of chocolate to enjoy with your wife or husband then I couldn't think of a bar more enjoyable than this.

Thorntons Coconut & Lime White Chocolate Bar

The Thorntons Coconut & Lime White Chocolate Bar is actually one of the best white chocolate bars I've tasted in a good while. There's no major sweetness and the lime flavour plays a significant enough role to really appeal to me.

Paul A. Young Chocolate Water Biscuits For Cheese Recipe

So as I prepare another recipe for this week’s bakingfest I thought I’d try something savoury this time and try out the new, shiny Adventures with Chocolate: 80 sensational recipes by Paul A. Young which arrived this week). Now Paul offers a large selection of savoury-based chocolate recipes...

Lindt Petit Desserts Tarte Citron Meringue Milk Chocolate

If you like sweet and sickly milk chocolate then this Lindt Petit Desserts Tarte Citron Meringue will be heaven to you. But if you like fine chocolate then give it a wide birth.

Charbonnel et Walker Vanilla Truffles

Unless you like very sweet white chocolate truffles I'd give these ones from Charbonnel et Walker a miss. They've very sweet indeed.

Prestat Choxi 70% Dark Chocolate Bar With Oriental Mint

Quite possibly the worst chocolate experience of the year. Far from enjoyable, it just tasted fake and didn't offer me anything to be positive about.

Rose And Violet Dark Chocolate

This 66% dark chocolate bar with rose and violet was more bitter than I anticipated and would have preferred it to be lighter and more fragrant.

Thorntons Dark Chocolate With Colombian Coffee

This bar could have done with a more prominent coffee flavour and a fair bit less of the sugar. At first it tasted really good, but then the sugar came through and pushed the espresso off the stage and demanded your attention.

Paul A. Young Valentine’s Brownie

What more could you want from a special Valentine's chocolate treat? This brownie from Paul A. Young is special in that its incredibly moist and flavoursome. Just don't eat it all in one go, you'll want to savour every bite.

Handmade Strawberry & Champagne Chocolate Truffles

I don't recall tasting any truffles in the past few months as delicious as these. The sweetness is more of the fructose variety than anything artificial and the Champagne is just of the right strength to add some warmth without being overly intoxicating. Just delightful.

Buffalo Milk Chocolate

There's nothing powerful or acute with this milk chocolate bar made with buffalo's milk but Artisan du Chocolate have done a great job creating something different.

Fancy A Quicky Anyone? I Mean A Martini Hot Chocolate

I was very much looking forward to this Martini hot chocolate from Artisan du Chocolat, but unfortunately it wasn't as powerful or alcoholic as I'd like.

Artisan du Chocolat Sea Salted Caramels with Lemongrass

These Artisan du Chocolat Sea Salted Caramels with Lemongrass were ok but certianly not worth seeking out.

Valentines Raspberry Hearts From James Chocolates

Whether you class yourself as a chocolate aficionado or not, I'm sure a great number of you will find these Valentines Raspberry Hearts From James Chocolates impossible to put down.

Hotel Chocolat Love Sleekster

I thought the 2011 version of the Hotel Chocolate Love Sleekster Valentine's chocolate selection box was very good and well worth the money. It seems they're getting more imaginative every year.

Manufaktura Czekolady Kwiat Soli Morskiej

If you want an old-fashioned, natural tasting dark chocolate bar with a sea salt flavour then look no further than this Manufaktura Czekolady bar. The only problem is you can only buy it in Poland.

Thorntons Haiti Mango Save The Children Milk Chocolate Bar

If you're looking for something to help with the charity work of Save The Children then you should really try this Thorntons Milk Chocolate Haiti Mango milk chocolate bar as it's excellent. Sweet it may be, but wholesome.

Chocri Personalised Dark Chocolate Bar

I most certainly wouldn't try this combination of a design-your-own chocolate bar from Chocri again. There's plenty of other more pleasent alternatives.

Cocoaloco Koska’s Blend Milk Chocolate Indian Summer Bar

The Cocoaloco Koska's Blend Milk Chocolate Indian Summer Bar is a delightful and sweet bar of chocolat with a wondeful, soft spicness that lifts the bar out of the ordinary.

Amelia Rope Dark Lemon Chocolate Bar

Most of you probably wouldn't have heard of Amelia Rope - I hadn't until recently, but she has put her heart and soul into these bars. They're definitely well worth trying if you get the chance.

Handmade Dulce de Leche Caramels

Thesse Handmade Dulce de Leche Caramels from The Chocolate Cafe are absolutely delicious, they're fragrant, soft, sweet and delightful.

Dartmoor Chilli Farm Dark Chilli Chocolate With Peppermint

Dartmoor Chilli Farm have produced a lovely 70% Dark Chilli Chocolate bar with a hint of Peppermint. It's very strong, so be warned.

Ferrero Rocher Garden – Lemon Flavour

Ferrero Rocher is a well-known and much loved brand, but this fruity version is just terrible.

Zotter Choco Shot Whisky

If you're buying an unusual chocolate gift for a friend or loved-one and they like both whisky and chocolate then you should really try this curious gift from Zotter.

Matcha Masala Chai Salted Caramels

I just love what Katie does at Matcha Masala and these Chai Salted Caramels are a good example of what you can expect from her company.

Montezuma’s Christmas Hot Drinking Chocolate

This special edition Christmas hot drinking chocolate wasn't as special as I'd hoped it to be. There were some good Christmas notes, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Zotter Christmas Chocolate

Perhaps less Christmas and more lazing on a Barbados beach? But I did think it was a great boozy chocolate that you could share with your family at Christmas.

Plush Fairtrade White Chocolate Petals

These Plush Fairtrade White Chocolate Petals were pretty good, but I would have liked more raspberry flavour. For something to munch on whilst watching a film they were perfect, but not something to concisously enjoy.

The Sleekster Classic Christmas Selection – Luxe from Hotel Chocolat

The The Sleekster Classic Christmas Selection is a very good selection for people that want to give something stylish at Christmas but don't want to break the bank.

Mulled Berry Chocolate From Berry Scrumptious

This bag of mulled berry chocolate slabs are nice and mellow, but they will never give you a massive jolt of flavour. They're more like a mellow backdrop to Christmas.

Matcha Chocolat Winter Selection

The latest chocolate selection box from Matcha chocolat offers a delightful journey and experience and is absolutely perfect for a winter's night.

Czekolada Deserowa With Peri Peri

This Polish chocolate might not be liked by all as it does have a dry texture and the chili is not so intense. It does, however, recreate to a degree how chocolate used to be a couple of centuries ago.

Vosges Mo’s Bacon Chocolate Bar

Whether I'd try the Vosges Mo's Bacon Chocolate Bar again is open to debate. The aroma was incredibly salty and strong but the milk chocolate and the juniper berries managed to restrict that flavour well. In the end I actually liked it, but not enough to buy it again.

Matcha Chocolat Bergamot Cocoa Nib Milk Chocolate Shards

Definitely give these bergamot and cocoa nib milk chocolate shards if you want some chocolate that is full of flavour whilst you watch a film or entertain friends.

Montezuma’s Revenge Lime, Chilli and Tequila Truffles

Montezuma's Revenge Lime, Chilli and Tequila Truffles weren't all that bad to be honest and they do some other good chocolate if you'd like to try them out.

Pralus Barre Infernale Lait

The Pralus Barre Infernale Lait was an incredible bar of milk chocolate, even if it was adulterated by nuts.

Vosges Organic Mushroom Dark Chocolate

The Vosges Organic Mushroom Dark Chocolate Bar may have been strange, but it had a delicious flavour.

Strawberry White Chocolate With Black Pepper

The Strawberry White Chocolate With Black Pepper

Zotter Coffee Plum With Caramelised Bacon

The Zotter Coffee Plum With Caramelised Bacon was fantastic, it wasn't supposed to be if my prejudice was anything to go by, but I loved it.

Monty Python Wafer Thin Mints

These Monty Python Wafer Thin Mints certainly aren't worth the money. You can find so much better chocolate elsewhere.

Paul A. Young Chateau Civrac 2006 Ganache Grapes

These Paul A. Young Chaeau Civrac 2006 Ganache Grapes are utterly fantastic. I don't have a price, but at least visit his shops to have a look.

Chocolate Christmas Snow Globes

For Christmas there can be anything more than people identify with than snow globes. This one from Artisan du Chocolat looks fantastic.

Niederegger Marizipan With Bittersweet Chocolate

I just loved this Niederegger Marizipan With Bittersweet Chocolate bar - it brought back so many memories.

Neuhaus Speculoos Milk Chocolate With Cinnamon

This Neuhaus Speculoos Milk Chocolate With Cinnamon bar isn't worth seeking out to be honest.

The Chocolate Café Manchester Tart White Chocolate

A white chocolate bar with cocounut and raspberries. It was actually pretty damn good!

Artisan du Chocolat Lumi Milk Chocolate Bar

The Artisan du Chocolat Lumi Milk Chocolate Bar was actually much better than I thought it'd be. There was a nice level sourness to it and only the very slightest saltiness.

Hotel Chocolat Eton Mess Giant Slab

I tried this Hotel Chocolat Eton Mess Giant Slab when it was out of date and it didn't taste too bad to be fair.

Ginger, Ground Chili, Volcano Cashews & Bacon Milk Chocolate Bar from Chocri

This Ginger, Ground Chili, Volcano Cashews & Bacon Milk Chocolate Bar from Chocri was damn wierd! What flavours would you go for?

Fortnum & Mason Mexican Mole Spice 70% Dark Chocolate

The Fortnum & Mason Mexican Mole Spice 70% Dark Chocolate didn't have an aroma that made me want to eat it. But when I did it was alright.

Matcha Chocolat The Lotus Selection

I just love the interesting chocolates that Katies creates. Every box has at least absolute gem in. If only more chocolatiers would push themselves as much as Matcha Chocolat does.
