New to the world of craft chocolate?
Are you tired of the same old chocolates? Too much sugar, and always the same taste.
Are you looking for something new, with real taste?
But there are so many options…. where to start?
We know high quality chocolate is not always available in your local markets, and not too many people know about the existing brands. Therefore, we created a list of several craft chocolates to help you start your tasting journey to become a chocolate expert.
We promise a discovery journey, where you will find tasteful chocolates and interesting stories from small batch, artisan makers.
If you like your chocolate intense in flavor, and you normally don’t eat anything below 70% cacao, we have some bars that will just make you love dark chocolate even more.
To start with, the Georgia Ramon Belize 70%. This award-winning dark chocolate bar, is crafted with fine and rare heirloom cocoa from Belize. As a result, this bar is a clear reflection of the Caribbean and certainly its tropical fruits. This bar has mild, but spicy and nutty flavors, with a strong fruity finish.
Our next recommendation would be the bar from the Scottish chocolate maker Chocolate Tree, Peru Chililique 70%. Crafted with one the best and most popular fine cocoa beans from Peru, this bar was awarded gold in International Chocolate Awards 2017. Amazing sweet and sour flavors, specifically notes of cocoa and sour cherry.
And if you are looking to venture for something stronger, and you want to try a 100% chocolate bar, then we recommend you start with the Åkesson’s 100% Criollo Cocoa Chocolate, with cacao from Madagascar. Cacao from Madagascar is normally subtle in taste and less bitter. Which is why this bar lacks the bitterness you would expect from a 100% chocolate bar, and has strong fruity flavors.
You can find both these chocolate in our dark Chocolate gift box.
Åkesson’s is a very popular chocolate maker from the UK, and we are extremely happy to let you know that we are working very hard to offer their products in our shop next year.
