Michel Cluizel 99% and 85% Ganaches

These Michel Cluizel 99% and 85% Ganaches are perfectly fine, but ultimately nothing sensational.

Zotter Congo 65%

For those of you chocoholics that love to try something which is just a little bit different, but not as far out as the Zotter funky stuff, then this really should be one for you to try.

Sir Hans Sloane Dark Drinking Chocolate Beads

When it comes to a pick me up after a hard, stressful day at work, there's nothing better than a hot cup of choc to sooth away those mental blockages and unwind. And there's no better way to do that than with these beads from Sir Hans Sloane.

Artisan du Chocolat Bali

There's just something fantastic with what Artisan du Chocolat are doing these days when they source cacao from destinations the less adventurous chocolate makers can't be bothered to explore. The flavour of this Bali bar was incredibly interesting.

Double Dipped Honey Crunch from Good Kind of Food

Far too often honeycomb confectionery can be too sweet. Thankfully this from Good Kind of Food had a more bitter, earthy side to it.

Thorntons Cloudly Lemonade White Chocolate

When one things of white chocolate I'm sure many would think of an intense sugar and vanilla flavour. But with this bar that combination of flavours is kept to a minimum. Instead there is a fresh earthiness to it which was very pleasant.

Rum & Blackcurrant, Dark Chocolate & Ginger And Limoncello Truffles

If you're having a dinner party or a summer garden party then you really need to try the chocolate truffles made by Pauline and Mark from Andover. I've been a big fan of their's for a long while and always interested to hear what they're concocting next. I'm sure you'll love these truffles if you either like alcoholic truffles or fruity flavours.

Naked Cocoa Orange Premium Fruit & Nut Bar

When it comes to raw chocolate then there's an increasing choice on the internet, but not so much in the high street. At last a company is pushing back the boundaries and making it more accessible.

Valrhona Guanaja 70% Grand Crus

This Grands Crus from Valrhona using single origin Guanaja cacao of the Trinitario Criollo varieties promised much but didn't actually deliver much. There was hardly any flavour to speak of a complete lack of drama. Valrhona built their name on the back of excellent chocolate, but don't match those heights with this bar.

Magic Choc – Non Melting Chcolate

Whether you'd pay £5.99 to occupy your children for an hour or so over the school holidays is up to you, but for me I thought it was fairly good value for money. Although I did find it difficult to mould into shape at first.

pourtoi Handmade Chocolate Cookies

You know you’re having a good day when a very heavy box containing ten chocolate cookies are delivered to you. The problem is that I’m too damn distracted by them to actually type anything more … OK, now I’ve finished the first one I’ll continue. My biggest downfall isn’t...

Rococo Mixed Chocolates Medium Ballotin Box

Rococo are absolutely fantastic chocolatiers and if you ever get a chance to try their chocolates then you most certainly should do!

Soma Chocolate 70% Chuao

This Soma 70% dark chocolate bar is made out of cacao from the well-renowned village of Chuao in Venezuela. It's supposed to be produce some of the finest cacao in the world. That may be the case, but this wasn't the finest bar of chocolate.

Marc Demarquette’s Nutkeeper’s Caramels

The general type of chocolate caramels that I get to try are ones that are excessively sticky and gooey where the contents don't actually allow the flavour of the chocolate to come through - these do. Marc has done an awesome job with the Nutkeeper's aramels.

Amelia Rope 70% Ghana Single Origin

Amelia's other dark chocolate bars have been very good, I just felt that this one was a touch too sweet and lacking in any depth.

Chocolate Cigarettes

There is just no good reason why you would ever want to buy these chocolate cigarettes. They were just horribly sweet and didn't taste anything like chocolate.

Montezuma’s Lime Pickle

Being Mango, covered in white chocolate - it could have been a fairly mild affair, but when that white chocolate is adulterated with lime and chilli it surely could only be tasty. It was actually much better than that!

Fudge Fancies Selection Box

Sometimes in life you just find something completley different and which you had found them before. And that's most certainly the case with these chocolate fudge petits fours which were totally fantastic. If you like fudge, I'm sure you'll love these!

Montezuma’s Vegan and Organic Chocolate Selection

It's difficult to review vegan chocolates when you're not vegan. I love creamy truffles and that was never going to happen with these ones from Montezuma's. That being said, they were still very pleasant, although a touch flat.

The Chocolate Wizard Selection

These chocolates are a wonderful creation for someone so young. Without going over the top, David has done a great job with these ganaches and if there is anyone who can help him some more coverage that would be great.

Michel Cluizel Noir Au Grue de Cacao

Michel Cluizel has produced a delightful and relaxed bar of chocolate that can easily be enjoyed by the masses. There's no fine, complex flavours just a strange combination of distinctive ones.

Thorntons Chocolate Liqueur

It may be a bit rich for many people, but if you'd appreciate a chocolate alcoholic tipple then I think this should be the one to try!

Limited Edition: Oriente Cuba Terruño de Baracoa

Certainly an interesting bar from Marcolini. It had a lovely cherry flavour but didn't give me the wow factor I was hoping for. It most definitely interesting, but didn't give any sense of complexity I love in fine chocolate.

South Devon Chilli Farm Bhut Jolokia Dark Chocolate

I received two slabs of dark chocolate made with Bhut Jolokia chilies as a batch #1 sample from the South Devon Chilli Farm. I expected it to make me feel ill like the Scorchio bar did, but thankfully it was so much more flavoursome and less faux. I can't wait for this bar to be launched properly.

The World’s Hottest Chocolate Bar

www.chocolatereviews.co.ukI like to try strange chocolate, but nothing will ever make me want to try this bar of chilli chocolate ever again. The heat is ok, but not how it made me feel afterwards! But if you want to buy your loved one something to knock their socks off then you really must give this bar a go!

Paul A. Young Sea Salted Caramel Pecan Brownie

Perhaps not my favourite chocolate brownie Paul A. Young has ever made, but I'm open to have my mind changed by others. Have you tried it?

The Grenada Chocolate Company Nib-a-licious 60%

This has a strange banana and mango flavour that is quite strange - but very enjoyable. The nibs, of course, give a lovely variable texture. I'd definitely say this is a must try bar.

Sunshine and Butterflies Limited Edition Selection Box

I wonderful alternative to the high street selection boxes. These are definitely worth trying - not only because they taste great, but also because you're helping the little guys.

Lucky’s Online Hunny Bunny Luxury Cakes

Why can't all chocolate cake experiences be like this? If only you could marry someone that's able to put these flavours together, package them up and give you a weekly treat? Well, because life isn't fair. If you do get the chance, get yourself some!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

If you are looking for the best chocolate Father's Day gifts then you shouldn't really look any further than these chocolate covered strawberries. I know they're not cheap, but they're worth every penny!

Gnosis Handmade Raw Vegan Chocolate – Sacred Feminine

Whether or not this dark chocolate bar does actually alleviate the symptoms of the menstral cycle, I don't know, but I do know that I actually liked it.

Butlers Chocolates Dark Chocolate Mint Crunch

The fresh flavour of mint chocolate is my favourite and this Butlers Chocolates Dark Chocolate Mint Crunch was actually very pleasant.

Zokoko Alto Beni 68% Dark Chocolate

This is a truly wonderful bar of chocolate from Zokoko who are chocolate makers in Australia.

Gü Chocolate Ganache After Noon Pots

Forget the calories and dive in. You only live once so why don't you just spend it doing stuff you love? Start here and you never know what you'll end up doing!

Frosted Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pop Tarts

I don't know why I spent £5.99 on these. I can think of much better things to spend my money on ..... probably ANYTHING!!!

Charbonnel et Walker Dark Marc de Champagne Dark Chocolate Truffles

They're all-right I suppose, just nothing fantastic. They were supposed to be dark chocolate, but there was no bitterness about them. Sigh.

Artisan du Chocolat Orchid & Orange Blossom Dark Chocolate

Although it didn't knock my socks off, it still was a very pleasant bar that I'd happily enjoy again. The flavours are subtle but you can't have robust chocolate all of the time.

Bouga Cacao 77% Hacienda Chocolate Grand Cru

I had hoped for more from this Bouga Cacao bar, but at least it had a very interesting rustic nature that you don't often I get to try all that often. It was also slightly spoiled in transit so just be aware of that.

Amano Morobe 70% Dark Chocolate Bar

This Amano Morobe 70% dark chocolate bar is a marvel of chocolate making. How Art manages to get so much flavour out of the bean is remarkable. If you are in a position to buy some, you most definitely should.

Gü After Dark Hot Chocolate Soufflés

A lovely light treat, but for me its just not chocolaty enough. But I suppose that it be a shame if everything was as gorgeously sweet as their melt in the middle puds.

Idilio Origins 74% Porcelana

I really don't know how people are going to get their hands on this bar. But try you must. Pack your bags, leave a note and head off to the continent. Your journey will be rewarded with some delightful chocolate.

Demarquette Selection Box

This has to be one of the best chocolate selection boxes I've tried - its most awesome.

Åkesson’s 75% Criollo Madagascar

This bar offers a sweet and sour experience with the balance of saltiness and red fruits. Although it's not perfect, it still does offer an immensely enjoyable experience.

Galaxy Bites

This is what I call convenience chocolate treats. But the most important thing is they're damn light too and not extremely sweet.

Hershey’s Whatchamacallit

If you were expecting a fine dining experience in the world of chocolate then you'd be very disappointed. At least its not a terrible bar of chocolate, like I find so many of their other bars are.

Madécasse 44% Milk Chocolate

Madécasse are a truly inspiring company in terms of their ethics, as well as the quality of their chocolate. If you can try some then I would, but also make sure you try some of their dark bars to compare.

Cioccolatini All’Olio D’Oliva by Nudo Italia

If you're wanting some robust olive oil chocolates then you'll have to look elsewhere. There's nothing powerful or archetypal Italian here, they're very subdued to say the least.

Pralus Cuba 75% Dark Chocolate

I was hoping for so much more from Pralus with this 75% bar made with Cuban cacao. But alas it was very muted and left me wanting more acidity. If you are looking for a mild dark chocolate bar with less cocoa butter then try this one.

Duffy’s Panama Tierra Oscura Panama 72%

This bar has to be one of the best that I've tried in a long while if you're looking for a smooth, rustic experience. The aroma and flavour are disjointed, but that's half the fun.

Pierre Marcolini 85% Dark Chocolate From Peru

This is my first bar I've tried from Pierre Marcolini and comes from the Alto Piura region of northern Peru. The aroma was sensational whilst the flavour had decent honey notes but was a touch dry.
