Things that belong in chocolate
- Nuts
- Mint
- Orange

Things that definitely DO NOT belong in chocolate
- Ginger
- Chilli
- Lime
- Chilli and lime together. Abomination.

Am I right?

Of course you are right. I blame the EU myself.

I'm pretty sure it's a Russian conspiracy. Polonium chocolate next up.

Not nuts, nuts in chocolate is very wrong
Agree on the rest though

critiqueofeveryday Thu 14-Jun-18 13:09:19

What about praline hopping? Technically nuts or not?

BillywigSting Thu 14-Jun-18 13:09:28

lime and chocolate?
Grim confused

It is A Thing. Colleague just bought chilli and lime chocolate. It is as horrible as it sounds.

Think I should have given this thread a trigger warning.

I like ginger in chocolate.

Not lime or chilli though

salted caramel - vile beyond belief. Keep it away from chocolate.

I don't mind ginger flavour. I don't like lumps of it.

I don't like lumps of actual orange either.

Chocolate should not resemble health food.

DH once very thoughtfully got me a Hotel Chocolat advent calendar which was 24 of the weirdest and inedible chocolate combinations I have ever seen. Fig and parsley. Banana and popcorn. Steak and chips. Cumin and 70% cocoa solids. Sea salt and seaweed. Obvs I might not be remembering some of these correctly but God it was 24 days of constant letdown and [vom]

Agreed, apart from ginger, ginger is ace. Also agree with StepBackNow re salted caramel - urgggh!

critiqueofeveryday Thu 14-Jun-18 13:14:03

Ave - Nooooo!

I had a banana chocolate in a Prestat box. I felt compelled to write them a strongly worded letter.

SoftBlocks Thu 14-Jun-18 13:14:30

I like all of them!

The original chocolate, as eaten by the Mayan civilisation, was sweet and savoury and definitely had chilli and herbs and other spices.

It’s the Western World that has ruined chocolate.

Have you tried Lavender chocolate. Chocolate texture, furniture polish taste.

critiqueofeveryday Thu 14-Jun-18 13:16:09

softblocks even cheese and onion crisp chocolate?

BarbarianMum Thu 14-Jun-18 13:17:03

Ginger totally belongs in dark chocolate you fool!

MikeUniformMike Thu 14-Jun-18 13:18:22

Mint or orange do not belong in chocolate. Ginger on it's own, fine, but not in chocolate. Fruits or nuts - depends on the chocolate. Another urgggh! for salted caramel. Just wrong.

critiqueofeveryday Thu 14-Jun-18 13:18:57

I feel like I need a taxomony of ginger chocolate now

Border's ginger chocolate biscuits = amazingness

Lumps of ginger with chocolate on the outside = terrible category mistake.

MikeUniformMike Thu 14-Jun-18 13:19:08

As much as I like marmite, it doesn't belong in chocolate or crisps.

critiqueofeveryday Thu 14-Jun-18 13:20:09

"As much as I like marmite, it doesn't belong in chocolate or crisps."

All sane human beings surely would agree with this. Ditto for lime and chilli and cheese and onion crisps.

I love chilli chocolate. I have just had a chilli hot chocolate at Hotel Chocolat, it was yum.

Amandinezea Thu 14-Jun-18 13:22:20

My brother brought me back some Smirnoff vodka chocolate from a school skiing trip when we were teenagers. It was the weirdest thing ever - domes of hollow chocolate filled with neat vodka that ran out when you bit into it

I love all of those. Now strawberry or coffee cream in chocolate is a different matter. They can just fuck off.
