The chocolate….. it BURNS!
So, way too much sweetness for this savoury girl! I insist that you MUST try the “lick” which is a little tub of melted chocolate with a spoon. Beyond that? You’re on your own.
It’s way to sweet and delicious for moi, Max Brenner.

This Christmas we can support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) as well as help our families reduce the amount of sugar that we all consume during the holiday season.
Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is Australia’s fastest growing chronic disease among children. That’s why JDRF are on a mission to keep people with T1D healthy and safe until they find a cure and universal prevention.

Just before easter, I received a parcel with some cute blue bunny ears in it. There was also some nuts… and a carton of the new chocolate almond breeze. I think this is the part of the box they really wanted me to write about.
So, here were go.
Apparently it’s got 48 calories per serve???? (of course, check the nutrition panel on the side, and it says 120 calories per serve, which is 250mL. LIARS). Ah that makes more sense given how sweet it tastes (48 calories is a meagre 100 mL serve)
Girl. Read the reading tlist they send you with these things. All the new boxes will have the proper serving sizes marked (250mL) for Aussie consumers. :)
How does it taste? Sweet. Like chocolate yogo (actually more like snakpak!!) Just like chocolate milk without the taste of dairy. Yes, I’d drink it, but probably needs to be really cold to be best (perhaps served with ice?)
I received my ticket to the Good Food and Wine Show from Chobani. It is, like, the most awesome Greek yoghurt out there. Seriously.
I was supposed to go with friends to the Good Food and Wine show. But they were sicked with the cold that’s been going around, and only let me know an hour before we were meant to meet *sadface* So, I was left to wander and sample on my own. Here are my thoughts…
Ahem…. Maybe I don’t share my thoughts on that pic ;)
Skinny Girl Cocktails were vamping it up, with skinny girls in mini skirts, and offering samples of their cocktails and also massages (not that I could be bothered waiting!). The Margarita was good. Ready to drink, with some rimming salt ;)
I dabbled in some Avocado oil. Hmmm… Think I’ll stick with Olive for the price…
There was a crapload of cider for sampling. Of which I tried none :(
I had a good chat to the people of Rowie’s Cakes about how great it was that they were supplying to the Qantas QFML and VGML range :) And their ANZAC bikkies were awesome.
333s Gherkins and I go way back….
Can I have the Ritter Sport Bag?????? Please???
Then there was a stand that made me miss Hannah :/
Mmm Conscious Chocolate…
And coffee… Sweet sweet coffee…
