I lived in Nairobi for the month of January, and the chocolate pickings were slim. So slim that my friend Annie imported this Frango stuff:
And actually devoured it:
It wasn't bad, but certainly not import-worthy. But in comparison to what was available locally, Guylian-aside, I can't say I really blamed her.
In addition to Guylian were Guylian knock-offs, branded "Beglian."
They actually weren't terrible. I mean, they were chocolate. They had vanillin, but they were relatively legit. Can't say I would pick one up if I had other options.
There were these Beacon-branded mint things. Er... "thins":
Also edible, but they were no Thin Mints. Heck, they were no peppermint patties.
Also these "bon bon chocolates":
I still don't know what it was, but it was awful.
One time, there was one of these bars at Nakumatt:
Not only was it fancy looking, but it had arrived in Nairobi within 3 years of its production, which honestly impressed me. That said, the bar didn't. It was too fruity. Sorry "Chocolat Stella, original Swiss chocolate."
Bottom Line: It's not like you're going to Nairobi for the chocolate, so come prepared with your own stash.
