Do you remember that channel 4 documentary, 'Willy's Wonky Chocolate Factory', about the bloke who wanted to make the worlds best chocolate; he owned his own cacoa plantation ect. Very enthusiastic and slightly odd bloke. Well, I managed to get some of his chocolate the other day. Waitrose is his main stocker, and we don't often go in there. It's a rather upmarket supermarket, and to do our weekly shop there would cost a lot more than going to Tesco's. However, we visited, and my mother said she'd indulge me. (At and £2.99 a bar, it really was an indulgence!). There are two types of the dark chocolate bars, soon to be three. I got the San Matin Puruvian ... Read the complete review

Over Xmas I enjoyed a tv show following the exploits of the somewhat eccentric Willie Harcourt-Cooze as he attempted to make a dark eating chocolate, using quality ingredients and his antiquated chocolate factory machinery, and in the process re-educate the British chocolate lovers' tastebuds. Well he succeeded in making chocolate bars, whether he has succeeded in persuading the average British chocoholic that his is the best chocolate only time will tell. Anyway after seeing the programme I wanted to taste the chocolate. Tracking it down is not easy, the only nationwide supermarket stocking it is Waitrose where I purchased 80g of Willie's Peruvian 70 for ... Read the complete review

Last year, my husband and I were thoroughly entertained by a Channel Four series documenting the exploits of a rather eccentric Willie Harcourt-Cooze to create a chocolate factory in rural Devon. Following on from 'Willie's Wonky Chocolate Factory' came 'Raising the Bar: Willie's Chocolate Revolution' in which Willie tried to establish a range of high quality chocolate bars based on the cacoa produced in his own Venezuelan plantation - the 'Delectable' chocolate bar range. There was something incredibly endearing about Willie and his family. Much as Channel Four tried to portray Willie as a struggling entrepreneur, I suspect that the closest thing that his family has ... Read the complete review

~~~~~~~~~~~ INTRODUCTION ~~~~~~~~~~~ After reading numerous reviews of chocolates, lollies, cakes, biscuits and various other sweet things on this site, I finally caved in and decided to write one myself - all in the name of research of course. As I am diabetic, and currently going through a lifestyle change (I don't like calling Slimming World a diet as that suggests a temporary, transient state) I usually refrain from eating chocolate. My main problem is that once I start a bar, however big or small, it usually doesn't last very long. Moderation is clearly not my thing. All these factors - and more - played a key part in ...

Bought for 3 pounds; 80g split into two bars of individually wrapped 40g portions. BRIEF: Taste was truly remarkable; unlike any chocolate i've ever had for this price; you would usually have to pay 4-5 quid for something of this standard (e.g. Valrhona, maybe Amattler); what helps is that this bar is fairly widely available. FLAVOURS: Musky oak aroma with strong cocoa, mature ending with sparkly? sweet notes Complementary tree bark texture / waxy melt From the above flavours you can probably tell that there's a strong "hand-made" ethic to this; you can feel the grittiness of the cocoa. Wonderful with ... Read the complete review
