Leonidas. The first and last word in chocolate. 100% cocoa butter, fresh everything and amazing taste. UK or USA only I think, and I presume, mainland Europe. There used to be a little shop in the Aberdeen, the guy who ran it used to joke I was only allowed in there 5 times a day :-) Seriously though, if you like chocolate and are in the UK order some!
Also, some friends and I were discussing chocolate the other week and a conclusion reached was that in hotter countries such as USA or even Oz i guess, chocolate tastes funny. (two canibals eating a clown, one turns to the other and says "does this taste funny to you??") Apparently it's because in hot countries, additives have to be added to the chocolate to raise the melting point so it doesn't go runny in the shops. This means that chocolate (yes I do include cadburys in that) in places like the UK melts slightly in your mouth, coating the inside of your mouth in chocolate and hence tastes slightly better, or at least not odd.
(...but what were the first 3 edits for, hmm??...)
