    I don't like aros.

    I have had a few, they are either sugar bombs, and I am not a sweet tooth guy anyway, or they don't taste like what they say they should, or they are foul. This, of course, is my palate and I definitely understand that many others will disagree. Also note, I have not had many aros due to these experiences, so even I don't take my opinion to be that meaningful.

    I placed a TAD order recently from smokingpipes that showed up today. All GLP blends. Except for two. One of those two was half GLP: Two Friends English Chocolate. Why would I buy this as a aro disliking man? Because I did try a bowl at this years Chicago show and did not think it was a sugar overload, so I was interested. I like chocolate beer so I would like to like chocolate toby. Furthermore, I wanted to have a tin of something to smoke up in my apartment that would leave a pleasant room note for Holiday visitors. So I figured some English chocolate would last the 2 weeks of Thanksgiving and then Christmas/New Years. I'm on my 2nd bowl now.

    I've read other reviews, and here's my shot at my own. Normally when I "review" a baccy to my friends tho, it consists of "like it" or "didn't like it" so this will not be spectacular.

    I definitely taste chocolate when smoking. You don't take a big full puff and feel like you're chewing chocolate, the smoke is rather light - not chewy at all, but afterwards there is a definate chocolate flavor lacing your mouth. Run your tongue on the roof and THEN it's like licking a chocolate bar. Other than that the actual smoke is flavorful and tasty. So....I like it.

    If you have had this and write better reviews please post them. After tasting a baccy for awhile, I can sometimes more accurately describe the flavors, but sometime I can't. However, after a few bowls I like to read reviews to see what others think, and then focus to see if I can pick out the flavors they find. This is often a successful activity.

    The other aro I got was Peter Stokkebye nougat. I bought this because I discovered it was the toby used in filming LOTR and wanted to see how it was. Also, I hope it'll have a non-smoker pleasing room-note. Anyone have this one before?

    I really enjoy the PS Nougat. My wife even finds the room note nice. I hope you like it. I have no experience with the chocolate blend.

    Glad to hear it passes the room note test with at least one nose!

    I'll have to try the chocolate blend. It sounds interesting!

    I dont remember where this idea was planted into my head, but I thought I remembered reading somewhere that this blend was kind of hard to find nowadays. Was I misinformed?

    Both are on my list. So many baccy's, so little time.

    nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”

    I got it on smokingpipes. Saw nothing to indicate stock was low. However, last time at Iwan Ries I don't remember there being any...

    Novelist, I also got mine off of smokingpipes, delivered just last week, and I thought the price was right for Two Friends. It's excellent stuff; the chocolate sneaks up on you, and has a very pleasant taste and aroma. I haven't tried PS Nougat, but I am kind of fond of their cherry, so I'm probably going to give it a shot for the holidays.

    Maybe it was a different blend that I was reading about. Oh well. Sounds tasty, now that I know it is readily available.
