Beaulieu Chocolate Studio is nestled in the New Forest and they create contemporary and local speciality chocolates which are all hand-made using fresh an where possible local ingredients. Beaulieu Chocolate Studio Forest Fruit bar is another newbie for me. Perusing their website is both a must but also dangerous, there are some serious delights on there. Amaretti (WANT), Banoffee, Coconut and Rocky Road chocolate, to chocolate shaped novelty items, speciality pieces and hot chocolate. This is a chocoholics mini paradise. At £3.95 a bar it is on the pricer side for chocolate, so let’s see if it is worth it. Handmade…

Happy Valentine’s Day! Nothing says love like chocolate so naturally that is the theme today. Yesterday saw the new Cadbury Dairy Milk Peanut Butter Oreo bar which didn’t exactly fair well, but today is a new day and its compadre Cadbury Dairy Milk Mint Oreo is here.  I am not usually a mint chocolate fan unless it’s those After Eight Sticks they did, they were glorious.

Although not one for me I do like they have gone for traditional flavours as well as a flavour they don’t normally do. I found these Milk Chocolate Thins in Tesco Express…

Milka and Cadbury Dairy Milk have a few cross over flavours, which is pretty much expected given they are all part of one giant company. It is pretty clear by now that Milka chocolate trumps the UK Cadbury Dairy Milk. It won the battle of the Milka Oreo vs Dairy Milk Oreo but the battle isn’t over, oh no, today we have the battle of Milka & Chips Ahoy! vs the previously reviewed Dairy Milk with Chips Ahoy! Alpine milk chocolate with biscuits and chocolate pieces (12%) and Alpine milk cream filling (39%). In comparison to the Cadbury version, the…

Small panic that Montezuma’s had closed down in Woking however they have moved to the other side of the centre and have got a brand new shiny store. I found it slightly odd that everything was a lot more spaced out and yet they didn’t seem to have actually expanded their stock, which they could easily have done without it feeling crammed in there.  Their Nanny Goat Giant Bar, which essentially is a Peanut and Butterscotch bar caught my eye but not wanting a giant bar at £13.99, the lovely staff member highlighted I could get a slice of it…
