Can I order large quan. of 0 carb., 0 sugar chocolate bars from Darrell Lea Chocolate Shops, for shipping to the U.S.? — Helen, USA
Frankly the prospect of this didn’t sound all that appealing to me. I wondered if it would actually taste like chocolate. Not that I’m doubting your choice, of course, but zero sugar…?!?
So I tried some, and you know what? It’s not half bad. No doubt the Splenda sweetner that’s in it helps the taste a bit. Darrell Lea’s web site actually says it’s low carb, by the way, not zero. At A$2.40 per 50 gram bar, it’s not the cheapest, and it’s not exactly fat-free, at 2110Kj (504 calories) per 100 grams.
As for ordering it online, alas no. While Darrell Lea does have a web site which details its product range and shop locations, they don’t do online ordering. A rather 20th century notion, certainly, but perhaps understandable for a relatively small company. Maybe one day they’ll join the modern age and let you order your choccies online, though to be fair, I can’t immediately think of any chocolate shops that let you order online. Most appear to rely on Real World retail.
The good news, however, is that Darrell Lea have international distributors, including in the USA. It’s a bit hard to tell from the distributor’s web site exactly what they sell though: if no luck there, try Darrell Lea’s Customer Service people.
And if you do get hold of lots of it, don’t eat it all at once. The packet warns that “Excess consumption may have a laxative effect.”
