Ever since my PE teacher described me as a “wet lettuce” when attempting my first ever head-spring over the box in gym class aged just eight, I accepted that I’d never be picked for anyone’s team at Sports Day.
Let alone the Olympics.
But never fear. I won’t be deterred by a label cast upon my forehead at such a tender age. This week, we’ve had the Olympics at home chez Mrs Dubai: The Chocolate Olympics.
To be honest, I thought it was a no-brainer. We have the divine, delicious, decadent Patchi – and we have Lindt in all its more-ish darkness.
Actually, any attempt to compare the two was just for show. My heart has always been – and will always be – with Patchi. Or Lindt. Or Patchi. Lindt.
And then DH brought home a box of Sprüngli.
“Don’t let your wife try these,” said the miscreant who gave them to him. “You’ll want to keep them all for yourself.”
Intrigued, I tasted….and the Chocolate Olympics took flight.
So, after multiple evenings of intensive tasting and, on the day after the closing of the 2012 Olympics, I give you the medal table for Mrs Dubai’s Chocolate Olympics:
Gold:The Middle East’s Patchi, in any shape or form.
Silver: Lindt (&Sprüngli , I believe) Excellence Caramel Intense
