One of my indulgences at Christmas was to give all the adults in the family the best-packaged chocolate I’ve ever seen – from impossible-to-pronounce Kshocolat, based here in Glasgow.
It turns out the packaging was designed by Third Eye Design, also in Glasgow, and has won a ridiculous range of awards. If you stumble across it in Harvey Nicks or Liberty (or… er… Peckhams, which is where I found it), you’ll notice how dashing it is.
As for the chocolate itself: now, I’m a little snobby about chocolate. I like small amounts of the dark, smooth, and nutty stuff. For me, therefore, Kshocolat rocked. Sadly, I can’t report on the ‘white chocolate with lemon and pepper,’ since dad had that bar and he guarded it jealously. Perhaps he’ll leave some notes in the comments.
Anyway, I note all this because there’s a bit of a hoo-hah going on in the blogosphere about Tcho chocolate, currently ‘in beta’ (oh, for heaven’s sake…). They might have a Wired co-founder on their side, but I’d like to make it clear that for once, Glasgow got there first. M’kay?
