Chocolates from Chocadores
Having heard a couple of reviews about these fruity chocolates, I was very keen to try some. After a bit of wheedling on my part, Sarah from Chocadores finally caved in and sent me four of these fresh chocolates. They arrived in a beautiful gold box which is normally used for wedding favours. Unfortunately, the chocolates themselves had been a bit battered in transit so the decorations looked a little the worse for wear. Attractive leafy transfers decorated the tops, each matching the colour of the fruit or herb featured inside the dark rectangular chocolate shells. None were overly sweet and they were all very fresh tasting. The flavours were intense with the real essence of the fruit and herbs coming through.
Fresh Mint – powerful scent of mint, the taste of which lingered on the palate long after the chocolate had been demolished.
Lemon – delicious, zesty and lemony, this white chocolate ganache reminded me more than anything of lemon flummery – completely delicious.
Mediterranean Orange – delicately scented of orange, this did not taste like your average orange flavoured chocolate; it tasted of the fruit itself with wonderful chocolatey notes coming through.
Raspberry & Rose – another intense fruity flavour, this raspberry coloured puree matched the raspberry and rose colour scheme of the top. Rose was the first flavour to hit the tongue but with the intense fruity flavour of the raspberry rushing to catch up.
If offered only one of these, my preference would have been raspberry and rose. Now I have tried them, I have no firm favourite – they are all truly delightful. They left my mouth feeling fresh and zingy for a considerable time afterwards. Of course having sampled only four, I am very keen to try a few more in this range.
