Several months ago, I spotted a pin on Pinterest and it immediately caught my eye. Everything, from the colour to the shape appealed to me. It was a box of chocolat chaud from Conran’s in London.
When I finally got to Conran’s in the Marylebone High Street, all I did was pull out my phone, pull up the image and ask the girl where it was. I had to get the orange, primarily because of the colour and the graphic look and style of the tin, but also because I love the taste of orange and chocolate.
I bought a tin of the chocolat chaud and brought it home. I have to tell you that it’s one of the best things I’ve ever tasted. So rich and delicious. Creamy and bright tasting. In a word: Fantastic!
I’ve tried finding it on-line and apparently it’s from Canada. It’s not on Amazon and it’s barely on Google. The tin doesn’t even have a website, and the Conran’s site has a different name entirely – one that doesn’t even appear on the tin! You can find it here, along with the peppermint and dark chocolate varieties. Funnily, when I saw the peppermint in London, it was in a green tin, and this is in a red tin.
I think that the orange one’s the prettiest!
