GODIVA CHOCOLATES – CHOCOBLOGMASS ADVENT CALENDAR
Let’s see now, how can it be that Day 21 is already here. Wow, time is flying, where does it really go? If I think about all the things that consume my days, I conclude that yes, it is full by the hour but yet, there is so much more to accomplish. The job(s) is/are never done. Once a task is crossed off my list, a new one is added. The circle of life! No complaints here though, life is a blessing after all. Every day I consider special! This is a much deeper topic that I would love to explore with you all but just not today. Perhaps I can dedicate a whole blog on this kind of mind-thinking. Moving on to the chocolate that Godiva has presented for us today. Firstly appearance, there is nothing that says “Wow." The choco has the shape of a box with white uneven lines running in all sorts of directions. The indefinite of the definite. It looks too messy and chaotic! Upon initial bite, it is tasteless meaning that for once, Godiva has added too little of a sweetener. How can that be, hmmmm... It is bland from all ends. The chocolate itself is of a cheap milk concoction that I would not even label as chocolate. There is a bit of creaminess to this chocolate however, this is not enough to justify some sort of positivity. Foul!

PURDY’S CHOCOLATIER – CHOCOBLOGMASS ADVENT CALENDAR
What more can I say about Purdy’s, and their 21st Day of the Advent Calendar Edition except a thousand thumbs down! A bell wrapped in purple foil, how original (I am being sarcastic). As for the taste, let’s just say that I would rather hike the Grouse Grind five times over before I need to consume another one of these little chocos. Actually, what am I saying, I love the Grouse Grind hike, no! I meant to say that playing tennis for five hours is better than tasting this grossness, again, wait, what? I love to play tennis, okay, okay, you get the point. Let’s just say that the dentist is calling me before I must endure another one of these bells. Yikes, wait, then there is Day 22, 23, 24… Oh brother!
Chocolisciously Delightful Ingredients: Unfortunately, the company did not disclose this information. I will always wonder why!

LÄDERACH – CHOCOBLOGMASS ADVENT CALENDAR
Nice job for Day 21 of the Swiss Chocolate maker! A hazelnut in the middle of the chocolate, and two more at adjacent sides, bonus! We all know Laderach's chocolates are delicious, scrumptious, and yes, I do want more, but are they nutritious? I thiiiiiiiink NOT! Go back to the basics Läderach, elimination is key, 90% of the ingredients! Where do I begin, perhaps the Gluten, Milk Egg White? Now I am in disgust, despite the yumminess.

DANIEL CHOCOLATES - CHOCOBLOGMASS ADVENT CALENDAR
Cheapness has hit Daniel Chocolates once again. We all got nothing for Day 21 of their Advent Calendar. I wonder why, have we been bad, not deserving? At least they seem to think so.

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
Gorgeous looking chocolate in a light brown colour portraying a leaf is the chosen gift for Day 21 of the Sinfully the Best Advent Calendar Edition. It is flawless in appearance. I am truly impressed. As for the taste, caramel with nuttiness lingering thereafter. A medium in terms of sweetener, consistency, smell, melt, and smoothness. It is not overly great but yet, not overly poor. I am indecisive on this one, but will be fair with my rating below. Looking forward to Day 22!

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.
