Once again to all my enchanting Choco lovebugs, Day 18 of the Advent Calendar Edition will be done in a briefer manner. I have noticed that all of you chocolate lovelies do enjoy the shorter versions of my Choco blog quite a bit but unfortunately, I must admit, that I love the longer posts!!! You are stuck with me and my endless writing now. Having said that, let the hardship, suffering, difficulty, struggle, exertion, sweat, harsh critique, okay, okay, you get the point now! He He He He He. No explanations here, just straightforwardness. I hope that you enjoy it. Let the Choco games begin!
GODIVA CHOCOLATES – CHOCOBLOGMASS ADVENT CALENDAR
Beautifully carved bon bon of what looks like all sorts of shapes, it just depends on which angle the chocolate is turned, be creative. Godiva has given us quite a large sized chocolate for day 18. Hmmm, are they being more generous as we are getting closer to Christmas? Yes Godiva, you only have a few days left to reinstate yourself, and leave some positivity behind. Godiva is going in the right direction though, finally. Once I took a bite from this choco, I was pleasantly surprised to taste a creamy middle filling, just bursting out to be seen by the world. Could it perhaps be caramel? It is special in the way that I was completely surprised. On the flip-side, this chocolate is insanely sweet. What as shame! You half-ruined a good thing Godiva. See you tomorrow! Boooo hoooo!

Once again, a perfect piece of Choco is presented to us for Day 18 of the Rogers’ Advent Calendar Edition. They just keep the ball rolling, and produce utmost excellence every time.

You are certainly a little delight today Purdy’s, well actually, let’s clarify; THIS is in terms of looks and appeal, nothing further.

LÄDERACH – CHOCOBLOGMASS ADVENT CALENDAR
Star shine so bright, star I love you so tonight! Milk Chocodelight with a crunch. Bonkers! Sooo incredibly delicious! I love Läderach’s enthusiasm and care that they provide for their chocolates. Well, actually stop now, REMINDER, ingredients are disgustingly terrible! Therefore, the answer is no, they do not provide the utmost care, and it is a bit shocking that they would allow children to consume these ingredients. Taste is impeccable, but what about the ingredients? We shall wait and see what 2017 will deliver. Patience is virtue!

DANIEL CHOCOLATES - CHOCOBLOGMASS ADVENT CALENDAR
Mini, mini, mini, mini, mini, and the list of mini’s goes on and on. Generous, Giving, Plentiful, Lavish, are all words that I would describe Daniel’s Chocolates with. I still cannot believe that we are at Day 18 of the Advent Calendar Edition, and the amount of choco given to us daily by Daniel’s can really make at least 4 larger chocolate bars. Money well spent! Finally! As for the taste, I am still on the same page as yesterday, and five days ago, ten days ago, and so on. SUGAR, SUGAR, AND MORE SUGAR!

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
Pretzel dunked in milk chocolate with lighter Choco lines running across is our theme for Day 18 of the Advent Calendar at Sinfully The Best. It is looking quite pretty here, and sooo twisted. I would not have thought that is possible to deliver something as such due to the size but surprise! They pulled it off! As for the taste, it is a great balance in all directions. The crunch is a nice wonder since it is unexpected. Yes, you would know that it is coming but still a positive shocker. Overall, a safe bite!

My name is Soriah and I am an enormous lover of fine chocolates. I enjoy strolling through charming towns and by chance, finding a little, delightful chocolate gem hidden in the corner, offering bon bons that are ready to be just devoured.
