Just got my birthday present from Tre;
He picked me up 100g of Redberry Tonic, Apple Custard, and this blend from DT as well as the Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait white chocolate bar. I wasn’t really all that surprised ‘cause he told me he wanted to buy me tea and asked specifically what I wanted so he didn’t fuck everything up and these are the blends I listed – but I had told him to only get me 50g of each. I suppose I should have been clear that the reason I only wanted 50g was because I didn’t want anymore tins, but I didn’t expect him to spend more money than he had to, so I just left it at that.
Now I have three more tins than I actually want, and no room for them. And the terrible, borderline OCD part of myself can’t have empty tins. THEY NEED TO HAVE SOMETHING IN THEM DAMNIT! He meant well, but I’m so stressed out right now damnit!
Anyway – this review is for the chocolate he got me, which we shared while watching the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt finale. Yup, totally binge watched the entire season on Netflix today and I have ZERO guilt about this. It’s a really, really good show! Hilarious, well written – just awesome. Netflix has really done it again.
Anyway, the chocolate.
First off, it was white chocolate so HOORAY FOR THAT. White chocolate is the alpha chocolate, in my opinion – and yes, I know it’s technically not chocolate. BUT WHO FUCKING CARES. It’s delicious and creamy as hell. As for the “tea” component – I had the same issue that I found with the Key Lime/Sunny Citrus chocolate bars – there was hibiscus petals in the blend that were horrible crunchy and tough and hard to chew on. STOP DOING THAT DT! No one wants a tough as fuck pocket of pure tart in their chocolate.
Taste wise, it was really nice though – I didn’t really taste the rhubarb at all but the strawberry was strong and paired with the white chocolate made me think of one of those really thick, frosty Strawberry Milkshakes from McDonalds that give you a headache from having to suck so hard on the straw – but minus the headache. Yummy!
Thank you Tre for the birthday present! Now to solve this tin dilemma because it’s stressing me the fuck out. I DIDN’T WANT TINS! CURSE YOUR UNEXPECTED THOUGHTFULNESS!
