It's time for a 100% NOT sponsored post :)
To be honest, it's kind of lame that I feel the need to write this on posts where I want to talk about a product I enjoyed. But I want you guys to know I'm not being paid to glorify any products here!
Whilst on a shopping trip to Bluewater, Mum picked up this chocolate for me.
Mitzi Blue ‘Hot Stuff’ by Zotter
(dark chocolate with chilli and strawberry chocolate)
Isn’t the packaging cute?
The inside of the carton states that the packaging comprises a CO2-neutral carton and 100% biodegradable organic plastic. Great, right?
As for the chocolate itself, it is delicious!
The strawberry flavour reaches your taste buds first. Then your mouth is assaulted by the heat of the chilli as you swallow! Add that the chocolate is organic and fair trade and you have a big mouthful of yum.
The chocolate bar is round and there’s a mini circular chocolate - called a ‘Mini Mitzi’, apparently - in the centre. I would have taken a picture, but my bar was smashed to pieces! Boo!
Zotter seems like a pretty awesome company. Right now for every ‘Yummy! Meals for Schools’ chocolate bar sold, they will ensure a Burmese refugee child will receive a school meal.
Chocolate loaded with good karma? Yes please!
Looking at their web site, there are some utterly mad sounding chocolate bars. Pineapple with Celeriac? Sweet Wine and Cheese? Bacon Bits?
I’ll be keeping an eye out for more of this chocolate as we all need a little indulgent treat sometimes. If I ever get my hands on a bar of Bacon Bits chocolate, you can bet I’ll be writing about it here! (Next up, however, is Wasabi chocolate...)
This is NOT a sponsored post, just me rambling about something that made my taste buds happy!
