Fellow bloggers are the best! And one that I had the pleasure of meeting recently was Tulip.
Knowing my love for all things chilli, she gave me a young chilli plant - that in the last few days has sprouted fiery looking fruit.
I guess she must know my other love, because on a recent trip to France she spotted (and sent to me) a bar of chocolate that put me into a frenzy!!
Not just any old chocolate, but a bar of chilli chocolate - and it's amazing!
When you bite into it, it doesn't just taste of chilli. First, it's just gorgeous dark chocolate, but then - when it's melting - you start getting an amazing heat sensation. But it's not a raw chilli heat that sends you running for a glass of water, just a spicy warmth that lasts longer than the chocolate.
Another discovery I made in the last few days, was that this spicy sensation can also be found in Waitrose, so I can pick up a bar without having to travel to France.
I should be saying 'thank you' to Tulip for her gift, but she has unleashed a monster and it's going to cost me dearly!
