i just thought i'd share this short story with anyone interested. this made me smile[:D]

i visited william curleys dessert bar on sunday and brought back a small chocolate lolly for my four-year-old daughter, which she ate this morning. about five minutes after she had finished the lolly (which only took seconds to eat!) she appeared at the top of the stairs with a huge grin on her face. i asked her if she had eaten it all and she delightfully replied ''yes, and i can still taste all of the chocolate''.

now, i didn't get the opportunity to taste the lolly and dont know what sort of chocolate william curley uses, but i assume by her remarks, that it was made with a high quality chocolate.

i just thought that it was a lovely thing that even a four year old girl can tell good chocolate apart from the sugary fatty types used in most childrens confectionery

William Curley uses only Amedei to my most recent knowledge.
When my small son is asked about his favourite chocolate his immediate answer is: the chew-ah-oh-ee chocolate! (we always have some Chuao around in the house).

i thought it might be amedei as there were bars for sale in the shop.

i love the look on childrens faces when they eat good chocolate. my daughter loves it, though she did spit out some venezuelan black when i let her taste it, which was a first in our house!

I love kids because their answers are unfiltered, unbiassed, and completely honest. They call a spade a spade, and as I've remarked before, are some of the best testers for quality chocolate as a result.

I never tire of telling this story. Some years ago I got a bar of chocolate for my then-3-year-old nephew, an avowed chocolate lover even then (the bar was Amedei Chuao). OK, so far so good. But the *next* year at Christmas I got him another, identical bar. In the intervening year he'd not had one. So as soon as he looks in his stocking, and sees the bar, simply from the *wrapping*, his exclamation was immediate - Ooo! The GOOD chocolate!

That's what I call making an impression. If a bar is good enough that it inscribes itself so indelibly in the mind of a child, that, a year on from his first tasting at age 3, and based only on the visuals of the wrapper, he recognises it in this manner, says that this is one superb chocolate (which we already know)... and is an equally powerful indicator of the discriminating palates of young children.

i love to hear stories like that alex,they are so honest in their answers.

i gave her a piece of valrhona 70% organic chocolate and told her to let it melt in her mouth, then tell me what she tasted. i expected the answer 'chocolate', but i could see her looking about as though she was searching in her mind. she first said raspberry, then honey, then coconut, then orange, which was a surprise to me. i love to see her enjoy chocolate as much as i do

if amyone else has a great child/chocolate experience please share
