Hmmmm… Chocolate Limes. I do have wonder if there is anything you could post that I dont like!
I love walking into the old style sweet shops and seeing all those glass jars. I especially love all the different colors. The green of these chocolate limes are one of my favorite colors.
I love these they are always my first choice of sweet my hubby is diabetic and he buy’s the sugar free version they are horrid he likes to unwrap mine and replace them with his and then wrap them up again so now i have to hide them from him.
The tangyness of the limes makes me think of summers in spain with a tall glass of lime and soda and then the chocolate centre just melts and makes me think of winters by the fire with a mug of hot chocolate.They are just so heavenly.
I have to admit when i first heard of chocolate limes, I screwed my nose up in disgust, because it sounded such a strange, unappetising combination.
I finally plucked up the courage to taste it afew weeks later, and couldn’t stop eating them.
I have to say if all weird combinations tasted as good, i’dbe ecstatic. 🙂
nom nom lovely sweets x
I used to cut my tongue on these things trying to get to the chocolate! Luckily I am older and wiser now… They say they leave the best ’til last 🙂
probably one of the strangest boiled sweets ever created but also one of the best, you suck away at the lush lime flavour and even though you know its chocolate in the centre it still comes as a pleasant shock when you taste it.
Mmmmm these bring back memories of rushing to the paper shop after school!! They had the flass jars and the shopkeeper would carefully count/weigh what we wanted. It was my dearest ambition at the time to own a sweet shop lol.
I also used to cut m tongue on these quite a bit, but it never stopped me from buying more!
Thanks for the great comments retro sweet fans 🙂
