How to Eat Chocolate like A Connoisseur

Being a self-proclaimed chocolate connoisseur, I find it only fair that I share my expert advice on how to eat your chocolate the most enjoyable way. Yes, it’s an art that needs to be done right!

I’m a chocolate snob, and have very specific favourites.

Lindt makes the cut.



As does Cialler.



Can someone please hand me a big bar of Galaxy? The authentic one?


Camille Bloch does the trick too!

I have a liking for Snickers as well, because they double up as snack bars and really fill me up!


And for all the naysayers, chocolate is healthy as well.

Here’s how to eat chocolate like a connoisseur:

   1.  Make sure the chocolate is slightly below room temperature, but not frozen. It should be just cool enough to start melting if you hold it for a while.
   2.  Open the wrapping carefully; you don’t want to lose any precious “chocolate dust” in the process!
   3.  This is the most important step – sniff the chocolate bar. Inhale the aroma. Feel it soaking your senses and fill you up. The winner in the best-smelling chocolate category is definitely Galaxy! It makes me feel like I have chocolate running in my veins. Maybe I do.
   4.  Bite in, or break off a piece and pop it into your mouth, depending on type of chocolate and personal preference. I like breaking it off rather than gnawing at the beautiful bar (except if it’s a small bar, or it they're small individual pieces.)

   5.  Let it slowly melt in your mouth, occasionally biting into the piece to help along.
   6.  If it’s a chocolate with nuts in it, chewing will be necessary, but do not crunch crunch crunch through the whole chocolate. Heaven forbid!
   7.  Carry on till the whole bar is finished ;)

What? I’m being serious.

Today's prompt :  Educate us on something you know a lot about or are good at.


  1. I absolutely love this post. I am addicted to chocolate and I too agree that it is healthy for you... in small portions off course lol xoxo

  2. Mmmmm, yes, you have to let it melt in your mouth. That way, the chocolate coats your tongue ...*drool*

  3. Yum - chocolate - a topic I'm very fond of, although I have to say my favourite is Cadbury's, but Galaxy does come a close second. As for letting it melt in my mouth, I've not quite mastered that yet! The bite, and in fact the whole bar, are gone before far too quickly.

    1. Do master the melting technique, it heightens the whole chocolate experience ^_^

  4. Think I just died and went to heaven! Great post! :p

  5. Yum! My mouth is watering!
