Visual Aesthetics – 9
I love the contrast of the colors – black being predominant with splashes of bright colors. The blog entries have accompanying photos, which I think enhances the whole chocolate experience. A little work on the formatting of the text and photos combined would make the look of Chocolate Snob even more appealing.
User Friendliness – 9
The pages of Chocolate Snob load up very quickly despite the amount of photos. I also did not have any problems with navigating the site. I appreciate the link to the “store” – which is actually on Amazon – wherein you can find chocolate to purchase. A suggestion, though, would be to place the links to the archives in a more accessible place – like the upper part of the page.
