Trolling for chocolate products

I have just ordered another £50 of stuff from Veganstore. This consists of 2 books plus £30 of chocolate. I figure that's probably about a month's supply, six weeks if I'm lucky :)

So I thought I would post a list of all the chocolate products I enjoy & am able to eat, just in case anyone wants to donate any to me :)
Ritter Sport: Plain or Peppermint (also available from Waitrose or various convenience stores round London)
Biona organic Chocolate Spread. This stuff is heavenly, almost exactly like Cadbury's chocolate spread was like when I was a kid, before they changed it to make it Dairy Milk spread (which is far too sweet, and if I think it's too sweet that's saying something). It is about a million times nicer than Chocoreale, the other vegan chocolate spread, which mostly tastes like sunflower oil.
Holy Cow chocolate fudge. Lovely. The chocolate flavour disguises the soyyyy aftertaste.
Montezuma Gourmet Drinking Chocolate (presumably also available from the Montezuma shops in Brighton or mail order from them). The only drinking chocolate that is strong enough to overpower horrible soy milk taste. The fact it's real chocolate rather than just cocoa and sugar means that the cocoa butter melts into the soy milk and makes it closer to the texture of real milk.
After Eights - but check the ingredients. There are two different formulations of After Eights depending on if they're made in the UK or in Europe - one's dairy-free and the other isn't.
Fry's Chocolate Creams or Orange Creams. These were the only chocolate bars I could eat for a couple of years before my tastebuds changed enough for me to be able to eat plain chocolate. Now, I find them too sweet unless I'm in a sickeningly-sweet goo sort of mood ;)
Whizzers dairy-free chocolate beans (a.k.a vegan Smarties, also available from Sainsbury's). Not amazingly keen on these, but they're useful for cooking or when I need extreme sugar boost.

All donations gratefully received! (Not that I can't afford to buy them for myself, but I'm hardly going to say no to any turning up :) ).
