In praise of chocolate - in Bristol

In Clifton Village there's a little shop that Bristol chocolate lovers in the know pop into regularly. I know it's popular with discerning locals as I've bumped into one set of neighbours on their way there and another neighbour brought me some of their chocolate as a gift. It's a chocolate bar that goes without any noticable signage to advertise its presence, yet whenever I pass by it's always full.

Today we walked across the green space we call the Downs past the groups of students with portable BBQs and couples sunbathing. Past the bushes smothered with dog-roses and elderflower and the children climbing the trees. Past the Observatory and Bristol's best known landmark, the Clifton suspension bridge.

I'd love to try the Thai Chilli chocolate! There are several wonderful chocolate shops in Amsterdam that also do chocolate infused with unusual flavours, but I'm just enjoying some good old-fashioned Italian dark chocolate right now. I picked up half a dozen different blocks, all from the supermarket, and they're delicious. In how many other countries could supermarket chocolate taste so good?!

I totally am drooling right now. When I am in Bristol, I know where I am going.

I love the simple dark shopfront- especially since it hardly hints at the decadent treats inside. I'd love to have a little sweet shop like some day. -X
