It's hard work photographing these little beauties!
Partly because they're quite tiny and I didn't have a very good camera to hand when The Hub brought them home, and partly because they don't last very long - they're much too yummy to leave hanging around!
|How empty are these packets?! They don't last long - too yummy!|
To be honest, my photography does not do them nearly enough justice!!
So let me tell you about them instead.
I've been aware of Cocoa Libre for some time, however, I hadn't tried them, because it involved buying online, and usually I prefer not too - as post and packaging bumps up the price of everything! And they seemed quite expensive too - costing £4.69 for a pack containing ten - I know, I know, they're handmade chocolate, so that always bumps up the price. SO I was very excited when The Hub brought some home, as a special treat, not long before Christmas!
He brought two lots home - a box of owl-shaped choccies and a box of sheep (ideal for an Easter treat methinks - they now have Easter chicks too).
'Baby' was immediately entranced with them, but not liking her chocolate flavoured with anything, she plumped for the sheep and took ownership of the whole packet (don't worry I didn't let her eat them all at once)! Just rude!!
However, I didn't miss out on anything with the owls, no, not at all!
What are they like?
I think I've said before that I'm not a huge fan of mint chocolate, but these... well these are something else!
Cocoa Libre chocolate is smooth, silky, creamy, yummy, gorgeous... I could go on! They're incredibly moreish. I really had to exercise a lot of self-control not to gobble them down all at once! Of course, you'll have to take my word for it, as the only way you'll know how good they taste is if you try them for yourself!
Where can they be found?
Cocoa Libre's website carries the full range. A list of other stockists can be found here, although I hear they may soon be more widely available - which, now that I'm a convert, I find very exciting!
