Hotel Chocolat Ltd.
Purist - 50% Island Growers - Saint Lucia (bar)
Very Good +

Today is the first day of November, and Day #4 of Chocolate and Christmas-Is-Coming Theme Week.

Nestled among the Christmas holiday items I received from Hotel Chocolat was a Purist (rare and vintage) bar. This 50 percent 'dash of milk' offering (from Saint Lucia) was very good. Its unique wavy shape, with rounded corners results in a unique look and feel. Open the bar's packaging and you will find the story (with photos) that accompanies the bar.

And, if you are very fortunate, you'll be able to visit Hotel Chocolat's  new plantation style resort on Saint Lucia, West Indies, opening this coming month. It looks pretty fabulous.
