Delicious chocolate that changes lives

I must admit that I absolutely love chocolate.  I feel more reassured in life knowing that I have some chocolate hidden in the house that only I know about, so I was delighted to try chocolate from a company called Choc Affair.  I received the Library Collection which consists of four of their best selling bars in a smart presentation box.  Each bar was wrapped in gold paper complete with a beautiful paper sleeve design reflecting the taste combinations that lay inside.  I think this makes a brilliant Christmas present as it is not the standard box of supermarket chocolates which look terribly boring alongside the Choc Affair chocolate.

I started with the salted caramel.  This is largely because I am a fan of salted caramel I think a lot of people get this wrong and make the chocolate to salty.  I need not have worried the creamy caramel flavour melts in your mouth with a slight sea salt hit afterwards – perfect.  My children couldn’t get enough of this chocolate and they would usually shy away from the idea of anything being salted.  Next, I or should that be ‘we’ tried the peach and raspberry white chocolate. I don’t think I have ever had peach chocolate before but it is definitely my favourite now as it was very creamy and delicate with a fruits of the summer taste combined with the comforting hug of creamy chocolate.

The orange and geranium chocolate transported me back to my childhood as it just has a very subtle hint of Turkish delight flavour about it but with the smoothest chocolate, I have ever tasted.  Also a big hit with the children.

I have to say I am not naturally a dark chocolate fan but the dark chocolate infused with lime and sea salt has a sharpness that all dark chocolate fans will love and does go down particularly well with my morning coffee.

Not only do Choc Affair make the best and creamiest chocolate, I have an admiration for a company that can look at a very full and competitive marketplace that chocolate retail is and just go for it anyway!  Not only that, they are creating a better tasting chocolate bar than the large confectionary companies.   Through their initiatives in Colombia and Uganda, they know the origin of their cocoa beans and are making a real difference to the lives of the cocoa farmers they work with – fabulous!

Can I also just come back to the packaging?  I am a big fan those simple touches from the gold paper to the beautiful paper wrappers that create a such a luxurious feel to a £2.75 chocolate bar.   I would happily give this as a Christmas stocking filler or extra gift for Christmas as it looks special.  Not only that, all the Choc Affair packaging to made a few miles from their factory.  A great combination of supporting local British Businesses and improving lives in developing countries.

My children are now convinced I have a direct line to Willy Wonka and I think they will be looking for a bar of Choc Affair’s chocolate in their stocking on Christmas morning.  What could be better for a child on Christmas morning than a delicious treat of chocolate to fire their taste buds and maybe a Roald Dahl book to ignite their imagination?

Great British Bake off stocking fillers

Whatever you think of Pru Leith (Or Pru Lethal) as I saw I referred to today in the British Press, the format of the Great British Bake Off proves as addictive as the bakes the contestants create.  What is nice about this show (if you ignore some of the Pru comments) is that it is good family viewing and there really aren’t that many shows on a weekday that the family can sit together and enjoy.  What’s more it does inspire a younger generation to have a go which is great as every childhood should have a memory of going round the sponge mix bowl to get every last delicious morsel of batter out – yummy!  I am constantly on the lookout for Christmas Presents during the year partly because I don’t want to struggle to think of what to buy everyone at once in November.  It is also a good way of spreading the cost.  So, if you have a budding star baker in your home or a more established cook who is always looking for a new take on an old favourite recipe, there is plenty of Bake Off presents to buy.

I particularly like this stylish Family Organiser Calendar for 2018

A fabulous recipe for each month

It is a bargin at under £10 and I do approve of the multiple columns for each day.  Afteralll it is a bit difficult to fit everybody’s whereabouts on a traditional calendar.  The delicious recipe each month will also be difficult to resist.

 

 

 

 

Other great stocking fillers in this star baker cup

This cup looks stylish and is a great compliment to give the recipient this Christmas.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alternatively, there are many cook books to help you read your own master baker status.  Being slightly obsessed with chocolate, I particularly love the Bake it Better Chocolate cook book.  Yummy delicious as my equally chocolate obsessed daughter would say!

The Bestselling Toys and Games in the UK for weekending Saturday 30th September 2017

These are the unofficial top ten toys and games for the end of September 2017.  The chart is full of pocket money toys which come and go each week.  The important item this week is the Lego City Christmas Advent Calendar. I was looking at this in John Lewis yesterday and took a couple of pictures.

Lego Advent Calendar

It’s worth noting the price of popular toys like this is changing all the time these days. When I checked yesterday John Lewis were selling this for £19.97 and Amazon were selling it at £24.99, which shows I think that if you have time it always pays to shop around for the best deal.
