Morning everyone, I hope you had a nice weekend? Sorry for the lack of blogging of late, my main contract ended last week so I’ve been trying to build my blog design business, which is going pretty well. On top of that I’ve been trying getting the redesign of our cottage holiday site done, so I’ve been really busy and it’s kept me away from Violet Posy. But I promise to try harder this week to post more.
So having worked hard all week, I had a lovely surprise on Saturday morning. The kind folk at Green & Blacks sent us a bundle of chocolate to taste test. I was a little too excited as I’m a complete Green & Black addict especially the 70% dark.
So armed with a lot of different kinds of Green & Blacks chocolate and instructions of how to ‘taste’ which involved holding your nose whilst putting the chocolate in your mouth which made Miss L giggle a lot. We headed over to my parents for a taste test, there was no way we could do it all on our own!. Dad was especially pleased to help out, anything to help out!
Miss L and my Dad took the taste testing very seriously, she even poured us all a glass of water to drink between squares. So as instructed we started off with the white chocolate and worked our way through to the darkest.
As you can tell from the video, we had a good giggle taste testing. It turned out that my favourite wasn’t the dark 70% like I thought, but the Creamy Milk which was a huge surprise. Dad’s was the Almond, Paul was the 85% Dark, but he seems to have polished off the Almond bar fairly quickly. Miss L’s was the White Chocolate we lost her after we passed the 36% after then her squares got smaller and smaller as it’s was ‘grown up chocolate’. However the rest of the white chocolate bar is coming in handy for spelling practice bribery 🙂
The only one that we all universally disliked the cherry – it’s horrible, seriously bitter and unpleasant and trust me we’ll all eat any chocolate or anything covered in chocolate!
So we’d like to say a big thank you to Green & Blacks for a really fun family morning and thanks for all the chocolate that’ll keep me going for the next month or so while I’m sitting in front of the computer working.
