After much persistent nagging, C had convinced me to watch Free To Play (a documentary about Dota 2 gamers) where it followed 3 guys journey in gaming – there are some things we can’t outgrow as a kid ;) One got dumped by his gf, the other kicked out of his house for gaming and another who grew up poor but despite all adversity they continued to do what they love. They made it to the internationals to win 1 million (FYI the prize pool has hit 8 million this year). At the core of it all it was to follow your dreams – SO MUCH FEELS. Maybe your dream isn’t to be a professional Dota 2 gamer but for a pink version of Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory – this I may be able to help you out with. Yes, it is Burch & Purchese where you will feel like a kid in a candy store :)
The 8 components of the explosive raspberry milk chocolate melded well together and nothing was overpowering. Each spoonful was full of interesting flavours and textures from mild pop rocks, crunchy rice bubble like chocolate to tangy sour raspberry. Mixing in the chocolate chip cookie crumbs and raspberry jelly blended everything together – you could taste all the awesome parts at once.

Burch & Purchese is a place where chocolate dreams are made – I would love to try more of their range :)
