Would You Like To Become A Chocolate Taster?

Posted on 18th September 2012 in chocolate/ coffee/ competition

The nice people at Cocoa Boutique are looking for 25 chocolate tasters! Simply click on this link for details of how you can apply – closing date 30.9.2012.

I was recently lucky enough to try a box of these little beauties, my top 5 favourites are the Dark Chocolate Coffee Bean (absolutely amazing, I thought they’d be horrible but they were just sensational), the Pink Champagne Truffle (the raspberry bits on the outside were zingy, just delish), the Pamela, the Milk Chocolate Almond Praline and the Cocoa Dusted Salted Caramels.

Yum yum yum!

The packaging felt like very good quality too, box had a good weighty feel to it and the chocolates were loving wrapped inside black tissue paper, the whole thing was accompanied by a tasting guide giving more information about each chocolate and the chocolatier who made it.

18.9.2012 – I am very sad to report that the winner of these chocolates has been in touch to say she hasn’t received them. In my efforts to look into this I have found that there is some doubt regarding the authenticity of Genevie and her chocolates. The photo of her below, for example, is an istock photo and not of her at all, if indeed ‘she’ even exists.

Here are the links that explain more: via @mummybarrow who also offered the prize – http://www.mummybarrow.com/i-dont-like-being-lied-to/

I have recently had the pleasure of sampling some of the chocolates lovingly handmade by Genevie.

My personal favourite of this little selection was the bottom middle one which had a marzipan centre; it was gorgeous *salivates at the memory*.

Online shop owner Genevie, pictured above, says:

“Welcome to my chocolate gift shop where I hope you’ll find the perfect gift made with love by chocolatier Genevie. My Chocolate is only available from the online shop and you will not find any of the chocs in shops or on other sites. All of the chocolate boxes are delivered free post to the UK mainland.
All of the boxes are hand decorated with silk and butterfly emblems making sure that each box is special & unique. A gift card is included with all of the chocolate boxes and you can give a personal message during checkout.”

I have a gorgeous, red, heart shaped box of 32 handmade chocolates to give away to one lucky winner!
