My husband sometimes get desperate. When I'm on vacation, I never take the usual souvenirs or purchase jewelry. Shopping for clothes on the market or in the center, caps, jewelry, I let it get by. Until I come in the neighborhood of a supermarket or store which got cook supplies nearby. I can smell them from a distance. And afterwards my husband caries , the new types of salt, tagines, pots, pans and chocolate to the campsite. While shopping I don't look at the weight, I go completely loose and want to take it home. This year, in addition to the new types of salt (how many types of salt someone need) I've got pickled lemons, 2 tagines, a few bottles of olive oil (with flavor) and a few bars of chocolate with salt crystals along. Luckily for my husband in several buy trips.
The chocolate with salt crystals of Swiss chocolate was the top piece from my holiday collection. The creamy taste of chocolate, sweet and salty mixed with a salt crystal.
So when I heard of Swiss chocolate and that they were going to launch new products on the Dutch market, I have requested a trial pack (the chocolate with salt crystals was eaten for a few weeks by then). Unfortunately, that flavor is not yet available in the Netherlands, but I did get two other super tasty flavors: dark chocolate and chocolate with a coffee flavor.
