Hi All,

I hope you all enjoyed the posts this week. If you missed out on them then you can view them here:

Next week will follow a similar pattern to last with a Hotel Chocolat post Monday and then a special feature coming up Wednesday which will take you up until the end of the week. Apologies for the brief update this week, it has all got rather busy on the day job and thus there has been limited time for site maintenance. I will update the news page later today so make sure you pay it a visit HERE.

I'm always saying ChocolateMission readers are the best on the net and further evidence of this was supplied to me once again by JCM friend and frequent contributor Thea. Indeed, Thea has recently been most kind to send me over a package containing a selection of Hungarian chocolates for me to review. In the midst of all those chocolates, Thea also included this German cereal bar made by a company called Hero, the Corny Big Chocolate Banana.

Now I've reviewed and eaten many a cereal bar in my lifetime but this one proved to be a real delight. Out it's packet the cereal bar didn't appear all that special, though it had a pungent sweet, artifical banana smell that reminded me of the banana foam sweets I used to buy as a kid. At first I didn't find this bar all that spectacular, but the more I ate, the more I enjoyed it, and the dried banana pieces which had congregated mostly near the centre of the bar provided a delicious, real tasting banana fruityness to the museli cereal base. Whatsmore the chocolate fusing underside actually provided a sufficent chocolate hit for each mouthful - how often can you say that about cereal bars that have chocolate involved. Cereal bars can often be ... well ... boring, this one wasn't, and I would buy it often if I could.
