"Looks just like milk chocolate. When held up to the light it is neither opaque nor transparent but a combination of both. The best colour match to actual chocolate you can find." – Juliette Mullett

"On its own this glass isn’t a favourite, but layering it up over other colours gives this glass a whole new dimension. I love the organic look this glass has when layered up over various earthy colours. Almost like layers of sedimentary rock. I've ended up liking this style of glass a lot more than I thought I would! I found it a bit shocky, certainly more so than Watermelon which surprised me since they are made in the same way. However pre-warming the rod seemed to help and the shocky-ness certainly wouldn’t put me off."

"Chocolate is a brown streaky transparent. I'm not sure about this colour. I would prefer a true transparent chocolate colour vs. cloudy/streaky. Does make a bit of bubbling when encased."

"Although you can’t really see any cloudiness here, Chocolate is one of CiM’s new cloudy transparents. It’s a true dark chocolate brown. The cloudy transparency allows a certain amount of light to shine through the bead but at the same time the glass appears mostly opaque. If you were to use a thin layer of it over something else it would act like a dark transparent and you’d get a less saturated brown. What’s lovely about this glass is that when used on its own, like I’ve used it here, it’s a true dark brown and it has no streakiness like actual opaque dark brown glass often gets. Another trouble-free glass. The scrolls on these are CiM Toto." Read more at Laura's blog.
