Haigh’s Chocolates

Haigh's Dark Connoisseurs box
Gj and I recently discovered the wonders of Haigh’s Chocolates and have been getting our supply of chocolate frogs and pastilles from their shop in the Block arcade. I’ve been eyeing their box of assorted dark chocolates since our first visit but the $16.80 price tag always puts me off in the end. Well, not today. I figured I might as well try one and be done with it, see if I like it or not.

The 200g cardboard box contains 14 chocolates inside with a little catalogue of the different chocolates that might have been included in the box. Yes, that’s correct, not every dark chocolate in their selection is included in the box so I guess Forrest Gump’s saying about never knowing what you get in a box of chocolates really holds true. Half the fun was actually from identifying the ones included in the box, the other half is just old-fashioned savouring of the goods.
