Seed and Bean chocolate review

It's been a while since I posted about food and I've missed it!

I finally got round to taking a few pictures so I can talk about things. It's so much nicer to have pictures, I think.

Firstly, I was a super lucky girl to be sent some chocolate to review from Seed and Bean, I was particularly restrained not to dive straight in. Our favourite was the milk chocolate with Cornish sea salt and lime; it was delicious and tangy! From there on me and C disagreed. I loved the white chocolate with lemon and poppy seed which was sweet and zesty which was right up my street, whereas C preferred the rich milk chocolate. All Seed and Bean chocolate is organic and Fair Trade which makes it a guilt free choice. The bars are a good size, plenty big enough to consider sharing while staying within the realms of acceptable if you happen to polish the lot of alone.

Seed and Bean chocolate reviewBundaberg run

I also got my mitts on some Bundaberg rum which I've yet to drink but I'd like to make some fancy schmancy cocktail with it so I'm popping my thinking cap on. Any suggestions?


Last but not least, I used up our last pumpkin from the allotment making a spiced pumpkin tray bake cake. It wasn't the greatest success as I completely forgot to put in the sugar, which was only apparent when the cake had cooked and the shreds of pumpkin were entirely visible. It smells just as delicious although tastes somewhat different although once set afloat in a generous serving of custard is acceptably edible.

Thank you to Seed and Bean and Bundaberg for sending me these items to review and Chris for growing me the pumpkin.
