July 23rd: '7Days of Chocolate Reviews' - Edition 81 - Jell-O Chocolate Pudding


Hi All,

Another week has come and past and three ChocolateMission reviews making your screens this week were:

Hotel Chocolat The Essential Holiday Kit - See HERE
Jaxx - See HERE
'Bits n Bobs' European Selection - See HERE

The summer season (if we can classify our current weather as that!!) is notoriously quiet for the chocolate market. So much so I'm finally getting around to getting some of the backlog up on the site. Apologies in advance if any of my reviews are a little outdated in their knowledge.

Now ... I have some bad news! For one week and one week only you guys are being denied the traditional Hotel Chocolat Monday review. Please don't blame me ... blame the 'Old Man' who had the cheek to take a holiday .... yes a holiday!!! This means I haven't had the opportunity to take any photos ofr the site. You needn't worry though ChocolateMission fans, the Hotel Chocolat Monday's will be returning a week Monday. In the mean time I have something cool lined up for this Monday anyway :D

Enjoy your weekends and remember to visit the NEWS PAGE where I've just added a story about Kraft making Cadbury cream cheese.


SNACK OF THE WEEK ..... a new part of '7Days of Chocolate Reviews' which will feature any manner of snacking product I have been products munching on in the weekJell-O Chocolate Pudding
Kcal ??? Fat ??? Fat(sats) ??? Carbs ???

For the third week running Snack of the Week has been provided to me by my pals at AmericanSoda. These guys recently included a pack of Jell-O Chocolate Pudding in my latest sampling package and I've been whipping up some treats in the kitchen ... watch out Jamie Oliver :D

From my introduction above you I may have led some of you to believe that Gordan Ramsay should be watching his back what with me bragging about my new found culinary expertise. Unfortunately I have to put my hands up at this point - the chocolate tart you see above was easy as pie to create ;) At this point I even feel guilty using the word 'create' :D Truth be told I bought some ready made tart cases from M&S and then simply whisked the Jell-O powder with milk until firm like custard. I may being saying this myself but these tasted pretty good you know :D. Despite being sugar and fat free, the Jell-O Chocolate mixture blended very nicely into the milk and formed a soft viscous pudding that provided a fudgey sort of chocolate taste. Compared to the likes of Angel Delight (which I admittedly haven't eaten for a good decade!!) I felt this was more of a substantial offering and felt like I had my chocolate craving satisfied to a reasonable level. I haven't showcased it here, but I experimented adding different toppings to the tarts - a bit of squirty cream and Reese's Pieces were the best I have come up with yet! What would you guys decorate them with?
