Find this chocolate!
February 8, 2007 6:36 AM   Subscribe

In london on a trip last year, I purchased a bar of chocolate (the flat bar kind, about 2.5 inches w to 5 inches L). It was a dark chocolate, and contained slightly dry sour cherries. It was by far the best chocolate my significant other and I have ever had. Help me find it again.

Can you remember where you bought it? A small store, one of the big stores (e.g. Harrods, Fortnums, etc?) and in what part of London? That might help narrow it down.

Here's one I like that fits your basic description.

If you're looking precisely for that chocolate bar, just do what I do when i neeed information about London, call the 800 number for heathrow airport and ask the nice lady who answers.

No problem, hope you can order some online. I always find that when I travel outside the UK I totally crave the chocolate when I get home. I also travel home with twice my weight in Cheetos as you can't get them in the UK anymore!

Hey, they sell those at my local store here in Bloomington.

The Green & Blacks cherry flavour really is awesome. Their milk chocolate is also surprisingly good (for milk chocolate).

Green & Blacks is owned by Cadbury's now by the way, so there is a reasonable chance of you being able to buy imported bars locally.

You can get them at Trader Joes, Whole Foods and other fancypants markets in the US. I highly recommend the Mayan Gold too ;)

You can get them at Target. In fact, your description was so tempting, I am headed over to target today to try it out.

I buy the brand at Walmart... Don't shun me for it. Oh and the Mayan gold is spicy.

omidius, you dont list an email address. I'm in London at the moment - if you want, I am happy to mail you some when I come back to the States in a week. My email's in my profile.
