Default Chocolate!!!

So I get a parcel from home today, from my Mum, I asked her to get me a few things, and she added a few things, so I am now in the possesion of a few bags of Marks and Spencers belgian chocolate covered raisins....how yummy, my taste buds are tingling, especially after nearly 6 months on kiwi chocolate!!!

You can keep your chocolate these days; I find the Uk stuff tastes quite 'fatty'.

However I am the proud owner of a VERY Large tub of Beef Bisto thanks to my MIL stuffing some on her container for me

I'm really puzzled....I don't eat much chocolate because I'm fat enough but is the Cadbury's chocolate produced in NZ really so different from the UK stuff? I haven't sampled much NZ Cadburys - one reason being that the bars they have in New World are humongous!!!
I take it it's not Green and Black's or 70% cocoa everyone's missing? Because you can get both those here at a price.

I actually had a box of Milk Tray at Easter for nostalgia's sake and it was frankly way too sweet. Even Maltesers (Mars I think) which were my favourite as a child do not taste as good anymore.

At the risk of sounding like an EU bureaucrat, I honestly think the best chocolate is chocolate with the highest cocoa percentage because the rest is just sugar and fat; and I'll now dive for cover.

There's a lovely home-made Belgian-style chocolate shop in Wellington CBD (Featherston Street I think?) and I also tasted some delicious stuff at a factory outlet in Keri-keri when on my recent holiday...it was raining so what else could we do ?

Yup, it's foul and doesn't melt properly - so not natural.

That would be the Makana Chololate Factory.They do free tasters too. Wonderful stuff - because it doesn't have the preservatives in it. Their Macademia Bark is to die for...mmm
