Lindt Chocolate Desserts – Jamaica Blue + GIVEAWAY *WINNERS ANNOUNCED*

Before Mr Bao became a little bit of a coffee snob we use to love going to Jamaica Blue for a coffee. We probably don’t go as often now, not because we don’t like the coffee. It’s more because I am so greedy and always want to try a new cafe and somewhere else :)

Jamaica Blue Doncaster

Lindt chocolate and Jamaica Blue have recently collaborated to create some new chocolate desserts using their chocolate. Mr Bao and I were invited to try the new desserts, I definitely could not say no to chocolate, dessert and some ice cold coffees. Mr Bao and I went to our local Jamaica Blue at Westfield Shopping centre in Doncaster, right across Big W.

Iced Coffee $6.9

Iced Coffee $6.9

Summer has finally arrived and it was a warm 30 degree day, so I started off with an Iced Coffee. I really enjoyed the intense coffee flavour it had topped with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream which reminded me a little bit of an affogato.

Cappuccino $5

Cappuccino $5

Mr Bao ordered a cappuccino describing the coffee blend seems to have changed since the last time we had coffee here. It was earthier with richer notes of chocolate and not very fruity. I was also impressed with the latte art love the double heart ~

Dessert Time!

Dessert Time!

Dessert time! YAY love seeing so many desserts in front of me and they all have chocolate in them :D Can you feel the grin on my face!

French croissant bread & butter pudding $13.50

French croissant bread & butter pudding $13.50

The French croissant bread & butter pudding has Lindt chocolate pieces mixed through and when it’s reheated it melts inside. It’s also served with a vanilla ice-cream and chocolate sauce. It was a rather comforting dessert and I think would suit colder days. I really liked the addition of the chocolate in the pudding, but would have liked a bit more to give it that extra chocolatey :D

Dark chocolate and pumpkin loaf

Dark chocolate and pumpkin loaf $9.5

The friendly waitress had told us that the pumpkin loaf was quite popular amongst customers. I didn’t think very much of it, but was actually really impressed. The pumpkin loaf was slightly warmed and very moist and slightly dense, with grated pumpkin and Lindt chocolate chips mixed through it. It had more chocolate than the pudding and was really lovely, I think it’s the perfect for morning tea.

Chocolate pots $12

Chocolate pots $12

Lastly we tried the Chocolate pots made with Lindt chocolate topped with whipped cream and a square of chocolate. It also came with an edible spoon made out of gingerbread. This dessert used the most chocolate and was best at showcasing the Lindt chocolate. The mousse was so smooth, not too airy like the ones you buy from the shops. How cute is the spoon?!? I’d love to know where and how they made it because I’d love to make it next time I served a pudding or fondant :D

Edible spoon

    Edible cutlery looks really cool, never though of making it from anything other than chocolate before. Gingerbread spoons are perfect! Though I’d love to see crunchy bread spoons to go with soup! I’d like to make it, but I don’t cook :P my other half does.

    I’ve never thought of edible cutlery! Genius! I’d definitely try to make them – although they wouldn’t look nearly as good as Jamaica Blue’s!!

  3. milkteaxx January 8, 2014 at 9:10 am Reply

    thats such a good idea but ill probably eat my cutlery before i finish the dessert! i love the idea of the croissant bread and utter pudding!

  4. sue low January 8, 2014 at 10:40 am Reply

    I absolutely think the edible cutlery is awesome, and yes i would definitely use them at home…would serve as an ecouragement/incentive on certain ocassions with “picky ones”!

  5. IOLA CHAN January 8, 2014 at 12:43 pm Reply

    only remember having chocolate spoons before. would be hard to find cutlery shaped cookie molds ? I am guessing it is 2 trays sandwiching the dough… hahha.. knowing me, I would probably ask for the regular spoon on the side coz I would snap the gingerbread spoon… or bite into it before the mousse is finished!

    (and yes already liked on FB and follow on twitter)

    Hehe I always like trying new places too! :D And I don’t mind edible cutlery but I don’t know if I would make it at home although I’d never say never :D

  7. heather January 8, 2014 at 2:04 pm Reply

    This looks like a work of art I’d love to make this at home.

  8. Jia Yin Tay January 8, 2014 at 6:38 pm Reply

    lol my parents did buy a box of chocolate “dessert spoons” last Christmas!
    they were so pretty it took us ages, when it got closer to expiry date, to actually bear to use (or should I say eat/drink?) them — stirred them in a cup of warm milk and voila!
    hot chocolate bliss :3

    Yum! Lindt chocolate is my favourite – I always use it for baking at home to make my baked goods taste extra yum! It’s often disappointing if you have a cookie or muffin at a cafe and the chocolate isn’t nice, so it’s good to know the desserts at Jamaica Blue have my fave chocolate in them!

    I’d definitely try making edible cutlery at home! More food to eat! ;)

  10. Di January 9, 2014 at 4:01 pm Reply

    Looks fun, something novel for a dinner party so yes will be making it at home…..well at least once!

  11. DIANA O. January 9, 2014 at 4:05 pm Reply

    Love it, more to eat and less dishes to do :) Big fan of edible crockery too, especially those wafer style cups hot chips come in at places like the zoo, delicious when it gets all soggy towards the end from the vinegar and tomato sauce.
    Would like to make some edible cutlery at home but I seriously doubt I’d have the patience for it.

  12. Deb K January 9, 2014 at 5:07 pm Reply

    There’s nothing quite like the sound of “real” cutlery
    As it clinks on the side of a coffee mug…No I would not be inclined to make some at home
    I’m too busy reading other people’s blogs!

  13. Frances Lundon January 9, 2014 at 5:19 pm Reply

    I would try to make them but they wouldn’tt turn out very good. I would rather come and try yours.

  14. karina l January 9, 2014 at 9:18 pm Reply

    That would be awesome – to be able to eat your meal along with the cutlery. Saves washing up.

  15. Kasey Evans January 9, 2014 at 10:00 pm Reply

    YUM YUM edible cultery would save alot of washing up :) and would be interesting to try and make…the gingerbread one sounds devine I so want to head now to my nearest Jamaica Blue store to try it, plus the other yummies you tested!

    I think the edible cutlery is a neat idea. We have had bread bowls before, and I have seen recipes for cookie bowls and the new bacon bowl product they advertise on TV. You may as well eat the utensils if you can eat the bowl.

  17. Lady Tiffany January 10, 2014 at 12:47 pm Reply

    Edible cutlery has a whole new concept on washing up…now all we need is edible plates, pots and pans, cups etc…

  18. Mel January 10, 2014 at 4:33 pm Reply

    Who doesn’t love an edible spoon, especially such a cute one ! Would be amazing and adorable to use at home :) !

  19. Rebekah Ballingall January 10, 2014 at 8:30 pm Reply

    I would love edible cutlery, we are always loosing knives and forks, if we ate them at least we would know where they have gone

    I still remember the days when I used to run Lindt promotion. Forever burnt and can’t make myself eat the milk chocolates anymore. I do know that it takes exactly 54 lindor balls to make one cake :)

  21. Zoe I January 12, 2014 at 12:42 pm Reply

    I love the sound of edible cutlery, It would save a bit of time when I do the washing up

  22. Helen January 12, 2014 at 4:11 pm Reply

    Edible cutlery! I’ve tried chocolate cutlery which was awesome – not sure I’d have the skills to make it at home though!

  23. Rachael January 13, 2014 at 10:16 am Reply

    I so completely adore your edible cutlery! Win/Win for the enviroment/me/baby! These would be a real novelty at home, would so very much like to poke my husband with an edible form! Beats edible undies thats for sure! Amen!

  24. gurtling January 13, 2014 at 10:18 am Reply

    Yes please! These are so delicious! A win win for me, the baby, the environment and a total hit for your store! I would adore these at home, why not! Who cares what other people thing :) They are a total fantastic idea! Who wants to wash cutlery when you can eat them all! I need, want, must obtain these for my home/tummy!

  25. IOLA January 13, 2014 at 12:16 pm Reply

    haha.. you did say enter DAILY.. and I’ve only entered once.. so.. PLEASE let me win the $20 voucher so I can drive around the corner to help Jamaican Blue Doncaster rescue all their Lindt goodies from the scorching summer heat from the skylight the shop sits under!

    Hehe the edible cutlery is super cute idea!! Would def try to make at home but firstly need to find the mould. Haha! I’m also your friend on Facebook and twitter lol, as if you didn’t already know. :P but just had to follow the rules.

    Edible cutlery, where have you been all my life?! The extent of my edible cutlery experience so far has been using a Tim Tam as a straw! I’m a bit boring, but I just want a packet of crunchy chocolate biscuit spoons, to eat with creamy vanilla ice cream. Cookies and cream, is there anything better?

  31. N January 14, 2014 at 1:39 am Reply

    Edible cutlery sounds fun! If I could, I would definitely make at home. :) I used to use papadums as spoons when I was little, so yeah.. haha

    Following you on Twitter.

    Edible cutlery..gingerbread lover, chocolate mousse lover..i’d be in heaven! Think its better as a part of the experience of ‘dining’ out!

  33. teekendall January 14, 2014 at 1:42 pm Reply

    Liked on Facebook :). I really like the idea of edible cutlery, less washing up would be a bonus! You could have savoury flavoured knives and forks, crusty bread soup spoons, cinammon or honey flavoured tea spoons and chocolate dessert spoons!

  34. Charlotte January 14, 2014 at 3:39 pm Reply

    When it comes to edible cutlery, my mind hits a fork… I love spoonfuls of sweetness but added calories cuts like a knife through my resolution to eat healthier!!!!!

    I think it would definitely be fun to try making them – I’ve made edible ice-cream bowls before! Just make cookie dough and mould it over an upside-down muffin tin and bake… perfect bowl shape and such an incredibly yummy dessert for guests or any old time!

    Thanks for the chance, would LOVE to try the chocolate pot… resolutions can wait until February ;) I follow you on FB (Charlotte Scotton) and Twitter (@abuckshort36) already :)

    I LOVE edible cutlery. I would definitely make a cookie spoon to eat with ice-cream – kinda like cookies&cream flavour. Or make sugar toffee bowls.

  36. leanne January 14, 2014 at 10:06 pm Reply

    eat the cutlery is much more pleasurable than washing up especially if its made of lindt with a hint of peppermint :)
