Chocolate is one of the best example of a universally liked food. I think I have met two people in my entire life who said that they didn’t like chocolate.  And why not? It’s that kind of thing that makes bad days good & good days better. We’ve all heard about how eating chocolate releases the same hormones as being in love does, & that eating dark chocolate daily is good for you. So why hold back?

They’ve been in India since 2011 but they recently opened two new stores at Nature’s Basket, Bandra & R City Mall Ghatkopar. I visited the former.
It was my first time visiting the new Nature’s Basket (which is amazing! I want to buy everything). The Cocoa Trees isn’t hard to locate at all, just take one flight of stairs down & then go right.
Tons of different variants of Dairy Milk.M&M’s dispensers (which can also be used as coin banks). There was also a cute M&M’s clock. These are the kind of things that make me regress – I was so close to picking up one of these, I actually had to remind myself of my age.Milka was introduced to us by a family friend from Germany – it’s a lovely treat that we get once a year. So glad that they’re available here now. If you like milk chocolate, you must get your hands on some.Oreo tins shaped like giant ores? I want to decorate with these.For the little ones.Zaini eggs with little Disney figurines inside.

There seriously is an amazing selection in there. I ended up buying some zaini eggs (they remind me of the kinder surprise my dad used to buy me by the dozen when I was little) & some nutty dairy milk.
