How well do you know your chocolate?
BLINDFOLDED and unsure of my surroundings, I put my trust in my Morning Bulletin colleagues and let them lead me to a secret chocolate taste testing location all in the name of world chocolate day.
With the global celebration taking place today we thought is was fitting to put our taste buds to work and test our knowledge on all things chocolate.
So with my blindfold on I stumbled my way to the secret location, which I can only assume was somewhere in the depths of the Morning Bully office.
I had never undertaken a challenge of this calibre but had faith in my ability to correctly identify all nine chocolates based on taste and smell alone.
I'm not going to lie, it was hard but it was worth celebrating 465 years since chocolate was introduced to Europe by William Ho.
As I sat down at the test tasting table I was overwhelmed by the smell of chocolate, which was a relief as my colleagues could have fed me anything considering I was blindfolded.
I searched around for the first piece of chocolate, popped it in my mouth and knew straight away it was a snickers bar.
One after the other I correctly guessed my way through each chocolate.
I fought through the waves of sugar highs and lows to correctly guess eight out of nine chocolate bars with the peanut Whitakers bar being the only one to stump me.
All in all I pleasantly surprised myself with my abilities and have now discovered I have a very important life skill in chocolate identifying.
Despite my new found talent I won't be running away to join the ommpa loompa's at Willy Wonka's factory anytime soon.
