Life This Week 30/3/2020: Chocolate

I don't think there's ever really a bad time for chocolate.

It heals and it goes with practically everything.  Including Jatz crackers and a cuppa.

It lends itself splendidly to dramatic chocolate fountains at ritzy buffets

and it can also express its artistic side as a medium for chocolate art.

Chocolate is enjoyed all over the world, these marzipan Mozart chocolates are one my of favourite food memories of Berlin.

It can also be enjoyed at altitude in the plane.  En route to even more countries where chocolate is adored.

Chocolate is an obvious ingredient with which to bake and frost.

It also serves as a simple yet effective way to make your homemade cake look a little bit special.

There's treat chocolate and there's everyday chocolate.  Merci chocolate fingers make it into my trolley every time I visit Aldi.

But my all-time favourite chocolate is Old Jamaica Rum'N'Raisin.

What's yours?


  1. I actually love Red Tulip chocolate that we only get at Easter time! I think it's a subsidiary of Cadbury and most people don't like it. I don't like (love) other compound chocolate but I love Red Tulip. Of course I like 'good' chocolate as well but I probably don't appreciate it as much as I should.

    Also, I'm really not sure about the chocolate + Jatz combo. I tried the chocolate and CCs version and thankfully the CCs taste didn't come through much.

    I love chocolate and peanut butter together!

  2. OMG I am off to buy Red Tulip bunnies right now!

  3. Anything milk chocolate is my favourite but if I had to choose my favourite bar, it would probably have to be a Mars bar. I had one every day for breakfast when I have an exam and that chocolate bar has never let me down :) Side note: your stash of plane chocolate is most impressive!

  4. Haighs are one of the few I will still eat!

  5. Yum! One of favourites is rum and raisin too! I' not sure about the jatz chocolate though! #lifethisweek

  6. We need some joy in our lives right now and chocolate certainly = joy (at least for me!)

  7. That was a sweet trip through your world of chocolate..and how good is it that your current fave is widely available..of course, I hope it is given the stock shortages all round thanks to you know what.

    Thank you for linking up for Life This Week. Next week, the optional prompt is 14/51 Self-Care Stories #2. 6.4.2020 and I hope to see you link up then too. Denyse.

  8. I almost never eat chocolate, I'm a savoury kinda girl, but Tim Tams and I have developed a VERY close relationship since this whole thing started. I have no idea what prompted this shift in my cravings, but it doesn't appear to be switching back anytime soon. Anyone want to trade for some sharp cheddar? Haha. :P
