Craft chocolate can sometimes be a little daunting and overwhelming. Some consumers are reluctant to brave the unknown and try a bar made with beans from a place they’ve barely heard of and with a percentage that seems far higher than they are used to.
To “bridge” this challenge, craft chocolate makers are crafting bars that appeal to the familiar. They make use of local ingredients and flavours that customers recognise, and tourists are tempted to try. These bars act as bridges between the familiar and the new, and are a great way to dip your toes into the wonders of craft chocolate.
Here’s our selection of some of these bridge-bars. Experiment, and let us know what you think!
