What a truly unusual bar of dark milk chocolate. The one aspect of chocolate of this ilk I love is the schizophrenic nature of the flavour. It tends to have a creamy malted milk quality but then is juxtaposed against the inherent acidity of cocoa. But here, with this Pump Street Bakery Ecuadorian foray into […]You may also like:Pump Street Bakery Patanemo 75%Quality Street My Purple BarChapon Ecuador 75%
This is getting tedious. Everything I’ve reviewed lately, I’ve loved. Recently I was saying to somebody at Salon du Chocolat that I absolutely love cherry and almond, and especially when combined with chocolate – and then these clusters appeared. At first I thought they were some sort of Dolceria Bonajuto confection as I didn’t read the packaging […]No related posts.
Life is full of doing things we just don’t want to do. It’s part of growing up. Until half-past five every day I’m one of a few million who daily tippy-tap on a keyboard to pay the bills. Some of us have money left over for treats. We all spend money on things that give […]You may also like:Sunshine & Butterflies Christmas Selection BoxPaul A Young Selection BoxThe Sleekster Classic Christmas Selection – Luxe...
I’m a lover of chocolates from London – just as much as I dislike stereotypes and lazy thinking. The conventional wisdom is that that the best bon bons are found in London or Paris, perhaps even New York or Tokyo. It’s all about perception and what ‘floats your boat’. It seems that many hold the […]You may also like:Swiss Champagne Truffles From Bon Bons of LeedsToot Sweets Chocolate Selection Box
The thought of eating chocolate made with some alcoholic flower beverage is significantly more appealing than the alternative - even though the packaging is somewhat more understated than Zotter’s usual fair, I just had to give it a whirl. Perhaps it was actually the thought that 12% of this chocolate is actually booze is what tipped the […]You may also like:Amedei Toscano Black 63%Zotter Cheese Walnut and GrapesZotter Mitzi Blue...
In my old age I’m so hard to impress. Halloween never really did it for me. Until today. I walked into my son’s nursery and there was a table with carved out pumpkins sat there proud. Children had worked with their parents to create something together. At that moment I got it. My son is […]You may also like:Hotel Chocolat Halloween Bites H-Box SelectionTiddly Chocolate Reindeers From Hotel ChocolatHotel Chocolat Love Sleekster
From the very popular selection of chocolate gifts sent over just before Easter this year that were not only well received here, but also by my extended family, to Cally’s Autumn collection which features eight bon bons of four different varieties: Bonfire Toffee Truffle, Rhubarb & Custard, Berry Crumble Truffle and the Toffee Apple. I’ve been craving rhubarb crumble […]You may also like:Chocally Chocolate...
If there was an example of what you can do with the much maligned Amelonado cocoa (and varieties thereof) this is it. I was planning a post about who it?s just down right stupid to write-off 80% of the cocoa produced. The inaccurate conventional wisdom goes that if it?s not Criollo or even Trinitario then […]You may also like:Friis Holm Chuno 70%
Maps amaze me as much as chocolate. Whenever I find out where cocoa is grown I instantly load it up in Google maps and look at the geography, the terrain and how it sits amongst neighbouring conurbations. As the map of Tan Phu Dong, where the cocoa used in this new chocolate bar by Marou originates, […]No related posts.
The guys at Daintree Estates sent over some extra chocolate from their new ranges with a recent order and as always, the unusual origins in the box jumped out and demanded to be reviewed. Having reviewed and enjoyed cocoa from the Pacific, specifically Vanuatu, I opened up this Solomon Islands packet of chocolate with great […]You may also like:Daintree Estates Dark Chocolate
