Fossa – Salted Egg Cereal Blond Chocolate
The “fossa” is a cat-like mammal unique and indigenous to Madagascar that roams the forests of the island hunting both day and night. The fossa is of the same origin of the craft chocolate (ie Madagascar) that Yilina and Jay first tasted years ago that inspired their chocolate journey. Yilina and Jay’s first taste of craft chocolate was at Christmas 2016. And they were instantly hit by wonderful flavours of refreshingly tart raspberries and warm almonds. This moment opened the pair’s eyes to how craft chocolates can have such flavour clarity – so different from the normal mass-produced industrial chocolate they grew up with.
About the Bar
This Salted Egg chocolate bar is probably Fossa’s most iconic bar. Salted egg is a Chinese preserved food product made by soaking duck eggs in brine. Fossa make the salted egg cereal in-house and sprinkle it over their white chocolate that has been slowly caramelised. In addition to cocoa butter and salted egg, Fossa also add milk powder, sugar, cereal, butter, curry leaves, chilli padi and a touch of sea salt.
According to the makers, this chocolate bar is Singaporeans’ favourite “tze-char dish” in a chocolate bar (ie home style cooking).
This is a beautifully creamy and aromatic chocolate bar, with aromas of caramel and rich tea biscuits. The white chocolate, prior to the addition of flavour, had been caramelised which lends itself to a caramel and biscuity flavour. The finish is savoury via the herbiness of the curry leaves. It really is a fantastic marriage of “saltiness” and “sweetness” that you’ll savour, not scoff.
