    Darrell Lea Has Embodied Aussie Nostalgia In These Chocolate Bars

    Holy hell is this stuff good.

    If you're an Aussie, no doubt you're already aware of the unattainable godliness of Darrell Lea chocolate.

    And if you're not Australian, it's time you knew that no other block compares.

    Over the weekend I over-indulged in the best of the best Darrell Lea flavours. They cemented my opinion and made me praise the chocolate gods in happiness.

    There was a Fairy Block of chocolate — a reimagining of the Aussie childhood party snack: Fairy Bread.

    Sundae Sesh was the block that tastes like everything my parents ever banned me from eating as a kid.

    Plus, my housemates got into the taste-testing action (because even though I tried to hide the chocolate, they fought me for it) and they unequivocally decided that the Bondi Block was their favourite flavour.

    Then there was the Halftime Orange bar that fans of Jaffas will 100% be thrilled about.

    And finally, there was the Bear Hug — honeycomb and blackcurrant jellies.

    Although, the best part about Darrell Lea, isn't actually the chocolate.

    Darrell Lea's chocolate product range is made with 100% sustainably sourced cocoa — meaning it's one thing you don't have to feel guilty about when chomping down on your favourite bar.

    The five mentioned flavours fanned out in their packaging

    Plus, their products are now 100% palm oil free and are aiming to have the ingredient list on their packaging updated by March 2021.

    There's not much else to say, other than the fact I'm well and truly gorging on chocolate RN and I have yet to face a pimple breakout. Fingers crossed the chocolate gods have sorted that out for me, too.
