Smooth, intense, fruity, nutty; this bar has it all. As you cut through the dark outer shell you’ll be greeted by a flash of orange. But don’t let the bright colours deceive you – this praline centre is an intriguing combination of citrus fruit and nuts that we find very hard to resist. The Barre Infernale Orange is as striking as it is delicious and would make for a fabulous conversation piece after a meal. Weighing in at 160g, it’s certain a bar that’s crying out to be shared with good friends.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Pralus has been making patisserie and baked treats in Roanne, France, since 1948. Auguste Pralus quickly became famous for his Praluline, a gorgeous brioche packed with rose-sugar-coated pieces of almonds and hazelnuts. Auguste’s son François is now at the helm, and Pralus has become famous the world over for its fabulous chocolate. François is a master chocolate maker – he’s always on the lookout for new cocoa beans and has recently bought his own farm on the Madagascan island of Nosy Be.

Bit too pricey but we enjoyed it over a few nights

I love this chocolate bar – I love the mixture of praline and slightly chewy orange and the dark chocolate coating tempers the sweetness. I’d never have thought I’d pay this much for a bar of chocolate but definitely worth it as a very occasional treat, and per kilo it’s cheaper than some of the smaller craft chocolate bars.

Lovely Chocolate very strong taste
I absolutely adore this one. I would not have thought that orange and praline go together, but it seems they do. It’s silky and substantial and delicious. I do think it is overpriced, though.
This tastes great while I’m eating it. But it leaves an aftertaste which clings for hours and which has me hunting desperately for something to remove it. Strange since I like Pralus plain bars and I love orange. I shall have to ignore the journalist who recommended it. This is the second time her tastes and mine have definitely not concurred
