Valentines with Yucoco

Valentines day is just around the corner and I have a date with the prettiest chocolate bar I've ever seen, that's if theres any left by then! They say all you need is love, but there's a few extras on my list, cat cuddles and chocolate being at the top. Chocolate in moderation could count as self love right?! At least that's what I'm telling myself while looking at this glorious bar. A bar I has the pleasure of designing myself! Yucoco have come up with a fantastic idea - not only do you design your own bar with thousands of toppings combinations but it's delivered to your door.
I've always enjoyed post, especially since becoming chronically ill. I didn't think happy post (as I like to call it) could get any better until chocolate came through my letter box, turning this twenty something year old into a greedy six year old girl again. For my bar I chose the terrific trio of chocolate so that I could sample all three of the chocolate varieties, which I can say taste lovely, the white chocolate being my favourite and the dark not as strong as I would like but still delicious. I topped my trio with Haribo hearts, Rolos, freeze dried raspberries, confetti hearts and a white chocolate drizzle. The Raspberries and the white chocolate go so very well! I also customised my bar by naming it. There's even an option to say who it's to and who created the bar.

Chocolate c/o Yucoco

These handmade bars would make great birthday surprises as well as a lovely valentines gift. After all, not  many people can say they had a chocolate bar designed especially for them with all their favourite flavours. If you get one of these on valentines day you know you've found a keeper, be it friend or lover.
