The notes of caramel and treacle are particularly prevalent in this bar, and as they round off in zesty finish, the natural creaminess of the whole milk chocolate is brought out. The contrasting flavours work wonderfully on the palette.
ABOUT THE MAKER
After a long and successful career at IBM, international jet-setter Chris Brennan briefly retired before deciding to pioneer the making of sourdough and other breads in his idyllic countryside bakery in Orford, Suffolk. About a decade later, he and his daughter Joanna decided to delve into crafting award-winning chocolate in their eponymous bakery situated on Pump Street, and have won numerous awards for both their chocolates and their innovative packaging.
The beans in this bar are sourced from Bertil Akesson’s estate in Madagascar. Bertil’s beans are famous throughout the craft chocolate world, having produced countless award-winning bars and winning many awards themselves. They typically lend their bars a fruity flavour profile, and it’s an endless source of enjoyment for us to see all the new ways makers find to bring out their very best.

Lovely full flavour, caramel, treacle and a bit of gingerbread. I found the end taste was a bit too citrusy. Environmentally friendly packaging.

Lovely and creamy whilst still very chocolatey

This is a really lovely dark milk with a strong fruity notes. It’s quite complex and you get notes of fruit, zest and a slight hint of molasses. Medium consistency but a creamy taste as it broadens out on the palette. An ideal milk chocolate.
