Uzma Sharif, the djinn behind Love-in-Disguise, is no Mrs. Grundy. She might as well be Black Mamba / Beatix Kiddo fronting The Clash in Dubai, cuz this Sharif DOES like rockin’ the casbah, but down the slinky-sultry way, with uploadable chocolate-sutra that instantly beam & sweethtooth into the navel chakra, before heading for the lower region, then snaking back up... kundalini-style to cocoa nirvana.

Selections
Couverture: generic
White Mint – Dark center enrobed in White w/ a small fire mint flare throughout for a shared tingle combo
Milk Maple – or Milk Mapplethorpe -> 2 same-sex cousins made for each other; strong maple punctuates sweet Milk to a pecan-like pancake
Milk Chocolate – another uplift on a fresh tip; nothing wild or exotic just plain & simple; medium-bodied
Dark Caramel – more Dark than caramel; ganache literally pops out away from the shell (still relatively new at this & has yet to gets her hands); a dancey dazzler combo w/ the force field & body of heavy Dark, thickened at the finish w/ caramel as if the mouth processes the changes - in effect & texture - thru chewing & stirring; architectural sensation
