Boho – Milk Chocolate with Smoked Hickory Salt
Out of stock
Charlie Burke, founder and chocolate maker, started his chocolate journey in the 80’s, with the opening of a small chain of chocolate and confectionery shops in New England, USA. After opening the stores, Charlie wanted to fulfil yet another childhood dream of his: working in feature films. In 1995, Charlie auditioned for his very first film role. Having got the part, Charlie enrolled himself in film school; all the while continuing to manage and expand his small chain of chocolate shops.
With chocolate still very much at the forefront of Charlie’s mind, crafting his own chocolate from bean to bar became Charlie’s next big challenge. Unbeknownst on how to start or where to begin, in 2014 Charlie booked a flight to South America with his partner, Suzanne Forman, where they would meet with the Taza Chocolate team in Belize.
This 51% dark milk chocolate has its subtle fruit and nutty notes come through from the organic South American cacao, with the distinct – and delectable – lightly smoked salt. The hickory sea salt has been aged to bring out an aromatic sweet and savoury taste.
The cacao for this bar has been sourced from Maya Mountain Cacao, an organisation that connects smallholder Belizean farmers growing fine-flavour beans with artisan chocolate makers. As well as ensuring better prices for farmers, Maya Mountain leads reforestation projects in Southern Belize.
This dark milk chocolate is sweet, creamy, and intensely salted – the smoked profile of the salt adds a further umami taste. Boho’s Smoked Hickory Salt bar perfectly executes the “bliss point” formulation, as this is one truly delicious and more-ish chocolate.

I found this a bit disappointing. I had bought it for the salt flavours but found that the salt flakes were few and far between. I also am beginning to find that I don't much like inclusions in the chocolate (a personal thing I'm sure)so whilst I found the hickory flavours very pleasant, and the salt, the chocolate itself is not a favourite.
