Valentine's Choco Series - Guido Gabino
HAPPY VALENTINE'S everybody!! ^_^
I just came back from a simplified court house. My speeding case finally was settled today. So tired now.
My wallet was BIG OUT BLOOD today. It was having a heavy PMS today. Poor little thing. My Kakak was saying to me in the phone, "You Dian Ji girl, so Kiang hor~ You know or not that will be my 2 months salary." Geeee... kena bomb. *gulp*
Hehe... some of you might be very shock that I went to a court house all in sudden ar? Well, I'll tell the details later. I'm ok. It is over now. Really glad that, after a few months long procedure. So troublesome. I'll tell you about my interesting conversations with the officers too. Tee hee hee...
Today, I'll just end with a short post.
Another new Choco experience.
I bought a Guido Gobino. Another brand that I bought during the Choco Fair.
This is an Italian brand chocolate. In fact, Guido Gobino has been known as Turin's most celebrated chocolatier.
It is especially famous with gianduja, the name of a sweet chocolate containing about 50% hazelnut and almond paste which started from Turin.
However, I did not tempted to buy one of this very famous product of this company...
Instead, I chose...
A small box of dark chocolate, that cost 525yen.
Four cute little coins were captured inside.
SILVER coin: Contains 60% of Ghana and Ecuador cocoa. Perfumed aroma with a fruity and bitter taste.
GOLD coin: Contains 70% of Venezuela cocoa. Nutty fuity flavourTaste ranges from spicy to flowery.
COPPER: Contains 70% of Java cocoa. Definite touch of acidity, developing to intensive sweet and then to tobacco and smoked taste.
BRONZE: Contains 80% of Trinidad cocoa. Strong bitter intensity, leaving a gingering taste.
So far, I have eaten the bronze and copper. I like copper, a very unique smoky flavour that gave me a good impact. Also, the little cocoa chunk inside these coins are brilliant idea for the pleasure of unique texture and the aftertaste bitterness.
Truly a chocolate for adult. ;)
Now tell me, are you the type that go for sweet milky chocolate or dark bitter chocolate? Both are ok with me, as long as it is not white chocolate. ^_^
