GODIVA CHOCOLATES – CHOCOBLOGMASS ADVENT CALENDAR
A heart shaped milk chocolate with Godiva’s trademark name running across the left side of the bon bon is the pick of the 22nd Day of their Advent Calendar Edition. A duplication of its own kind, but on a positive note. At least the repetitions in the look of each chocolate are days apart, unlike another chocolate maker that has the same theme going, day after day, after day. No need to be a snitch. This piece of choco is shiny in appearance, clean lines, the engraving is of utmost perfection. Outcome, an A- for the outer shell. As for the interior taste, creamy, speedy melt, sweetener could have been on a calmer note, and the lingering nuttiness leaves a nice touch. Overall, a mediocre taste with positive notes.

PURDY’S CHOCOLATIER – CHOCOBLOGMASS ADVENT CALENDAR
Phewwwww, yes, Santa Claus saved the day. That is the theme for Day 22 of the Advent Calendar Edition for Purdy’s. Santa looks joyful, embracing, inviting, and fresh! What about the taste though, Santa must also deliver in that department? Hmmmm, not so fast, and not so good. Awful actually! Oh, my doodles, it tastes like an ol’ shoe. Well, an overly sweetened ol’ shoe. I think that it is a theme which Purdy’s is aiming for. I have not quite yet figured out what is the content here, but it is safe to say that it is not a pretty one. This is a bad manifestation on all levels. Need I say more?
Chocolisciously Delightful Ingredients: Unfortunately, the company did not disclose this information. I will always wonder why!

LÄDERACH – CHOCOBLOGMASS ADVENT CALENDAR
I am a little bit surprised, and at the same time disappointed for day 22 of Läderach’s Advent Calendar Edition. I will further elaborate. The reason for my opening statement is that yes, it is a real astonishment to see a bon bon not at all related to Christmas with the pink bow running across it, and yes, disappointed because I actually think that Läderach used this piece of choco from their Valentine’s Day leftover chocolates. Seriously, that makes perfect sense, all of it. They could have at least waited until Valentine’s 2017 to add it in one of their chocolate boxes, but by that time perhaps, the chocolate would taste too stale for sale. Ohhh, that rhymes. Nice! Anyhow, let’s taste and test! Nope, I am so dissatisfied. This is horrible. Yes, musty too. Certainly a leftover. It might have “accidentally” been dropped in all of these Advent Calendars. Unfortunately, this idea cannot be proved. Trust me when I say that there is nothing sweet about this heart and its ribbon. Just an overly-expired piece of choco. Naughty and bad!

DANIEL CHOCOLATES - CHOCOBLOGMASS ADVENT CALENDAR
Cuteness and charm is what Daniel delivers once again. It is a repetition of its predecessor days but who’s counting! Overall, this company has good ingredients with a decent taste. My sole complaint though is in taste, predominantly, the sweetness. Wayyyyy tooo much! Also, perhaps the reason for the kindness in the size of these chocolate bars seen here and there in the Advent Calendar is to make up for the days have nothing, nada, zero, nil. It all makes sense now. I was beginning to worry!

KINDER - CHOCOBLOGMASS ADVENT CALENDAR
Since I do not want to reiterate myself, here is a link to Kinder’s unfortunate conclusion of their Advent Calendar! Until next year Kinder, make a change to your chocolates by incorporating a variety. Children just love surprises!
LINDT - CHOCOBLOGMASS ADVENT CALENDAR
Unfortunately, regrettably, sadly, sorry to say that Lindt did not make it any further in this Advent Calendar Edition Competition. Well actually, it should have been the end for them long ago, but I gave Lindt the benefit of the doubt. Despite my benevolence, their daily bon bons were outright stale and rancid. I was hopeful that there would come a day, any day for that matter where I would happily find a Choco that did not make me ill. That day never came. Here is the link to the occurrence that finally led me to say goodbye.

SINFULLY THE BEST - CHOCOBLOGMASS ADVENT CALENDAR
A dark piece of choco carved as a moose is what Sinfully The Best brought to us for Day 22 of their Advent Calendar Edition. Perfect from every corner. There is nothing in terms of appearance that needs improvements. It is seriously that flawless. The detail work is of excellence. There is a healthy shine to the chocolate that is quite inviting. Let’s delve in now; for testing purposes of course (he he he). Wow, a pleasant surprise. The dark chocolate tastes rich, and balanced in terms of the cacao and sugar, cacao and butter, cacao and oils, cacao and whatever else they have incorporated in this piece of beautifulness. We still will never know though. Why so secretive with the ingredient list, what is there to hide? Top secret? Oh well, the truth will one day prevail!

Affordable but still Savory
This blog page is dedicated to inexpensive chocolates that are continuously, to this day, enjoyed daily by many chocolate lovers out there. I still happily delve my taste buds into a good old-fashioned, so tasty, and yet simple Mr. Goodbar. To top it off, the cost allows for a much "Sweeter" satisfaction on your fuller wallet!
