I thought I'd promote it here right away, because the result was so fantastic. Look at the accompanying review for Honduras Indio Rojo: one of the best first-efforts I've had the pleasure to try from a chocolate maker.

In accompanying news, Harvey Nichols scored an embarrassing own goal today when their announced introduction of Duffy's range (including an HN exclusive Dominican Republic) fell a bit flat due to a missed shipment of the actual chocolate! Duffy was there at the Manchester store alright, and gamely soldiered on by doing the best he could with the limited samples he himself had brought, but it seems HN here shot themselves in the foot – entirely of their own doing I might add since I have information that confirms that the chocolate itself was definitely delivered into Harvey Nick's hands (apparently in Edinburgh).

Nonetheless, samples of the HN exclusive are very promising indeed – perhaps even more so than the Honduras here reviewed; even passing customers were commenting on it, which says a lot when all you have is such small samples! Look out for a review of it shortly!
