Antica Dolceria Bonajuto is the oldest chocolate factory in Sicily. The chocolate was not at all what I had been expecting, which was something dense, rich and smooth.
London Unattached for sending me a bar to try from her Sicilian travels.
Mostly About Chocolate. I haven't had high quality artisan filled chocolates for a while so I relished these. They came in a cute little transparent box too. Thank you Judith.
Daintree Estates - smooth slightly caramel flavoured truffle.
Spotty green - praline with something I couldn't quite decipher.
Madre - dark and bitter truffle with an unusual but exciting citrus like flavour I couldn't identify.
Golf - praline with crunchy feuilletine and crystaline texture that tasted slightly peanutbuttery.
Ceibo - dark chocolate truffle - tasted of rum & raisin with a hint of orange, but far more sophisticated than the bars of Old Jamaica I used to love as a child.
Beans Original - a truffle with an odd flavour which again I couldn't identify.
review of Ohso last month, I was sent some orange Ohso to try. CT and I sat down to savour our daily dose of probiotics. These little 35g bars contain masses of good for your gut bacteria. CT is very fussy about orange chocolate, which often tastes artificial and makes him feel ill. He liked this one though and thought it tasted like real oranges. Combined with the 53% plain chocolate, they had a sufficient complexity of flavour to make them interesting and pleasant to eat. As with the plain Ohso though, we both found them a little too sweet for our palates. Like their plainer cousins, they are available to buy online and at many health food shops.
