Chocolate just an excuse to run roughshod over it, transmuting alchemy back into calumny.

a divination kit - so exquisite & delicate - wielded by a wizard

infusion overflow

Flavor   27.4 / 50
overkill

Awkwardly heavy-handed
Selections
Couverture: generic
Classic Giandujottini – the original milk-free recipe for Turinese gianduja; a high-sugared take on hazelnut paste & chocolate
Milk Chocolate Giandujottini – the more popular version of gianduja, here a solid state nutella; instant sugar pop & saturation point
Cinnamon Hempisphere – red-hot candy shot to which chocolate cannot stand up
Peppermint Hempisphere – invasive, then pervasive; dry medicinal kick-start, vaporous heat cooled by cacáo, but too little too late
White Chocolate Hemisphere – draws a buttered blank
Pepe Rosa – pepper spray in White chocolate
Petit Grain – from the leaf of the orange tree; here, a soap dish for resort hotels, especially effective for mouthwash to clear, say, Gobino’s Peppermint Hemisphere
Lavender – apothecary-strength, leaving only a little fighting chance for Dark Choc
Gianduja Cream – best of the adult Nutella imitators; a runny sugar-heavy spread for snacking
Café Giandujottini – espresso level
