In 2009 David and I took our annual holiday in England. We decided to spend a week in Dartmouth, exploring the area of Devon and Cornwall. On our way from Heathrow to Dartmouth, we stopped off at Stonehenge and then had lunch in Cadbury. This little village was 13 miles from Willie’s Chocolate Cacao Factory but, we had not yet heard of him. A few weeks after we got back to South Africa, Willie’s Chocolate show was aired on TV in South Africa, and the longing for his product began. Then, in September Woolworths had his chocolate for sale.
As you can see, I could not make up my mind and so I bought all three! There are recipes in the labels but I decided to use my own cake recipe and so far I have made two awesome cakes: a cinnamon cake, and a blueberry cake.
I can recommend this lovely product and now I need to start thinking outside the box and try something savoury! In the years following this blog post, Woolworths decided to get rid of the product. The price meant that not much was purchased and so I bought up all the stock. Nine years down the line I am still using it.

Choc-chilli sauce on fillet?
we have had that once and we were not super impressed – might try a proper mole sauce if I can get the right chillies 🙂
I am convinced that I saw these in our local grocery store (Super U) here in Mauritius. I will have to investigate and report back.
please let me know! thanks for the visit 🙂
Aah crumbs, I clean forgot to look yesterday in Super U – sorry! 🙁 I will put it on my list have a squiz next week.
Woolworths have now done a whole shelf dedicated the the Cacao products! Hope you have had a great weekend 🙂
I just asked my hubby and he reckons I must be getting island fever as he is convinced we saw it in Woolies…
Island fever sounds good to me right now!
Hmm, seems it is Island Fever 🙁 It was Woolies and not Super U…
