I haven't really mentioned it here on the blog, but over the past year or so I've become a bit of a chocolate snob (or maybe more of one!) And now that I've found a good source for the chocolate bars I love, I thought I should start reviewing them here as I finish them off. First let me say that a 3.5oz chocolate bar might take me 1-2 weeks to finish and I may be eating 2 or three at any one time. So don't expect reviews every day or anything like that. I like to savor my chocolate :)
Although I am a lover of dark chocolate, I'm starting off with a white chocolate bar. White chocolate?!?!?!? Dare I combine those two words? I do if I'm talking about Green & Black's Organic White Chocolate bar. Here's how they describe it on their website:
To make our white chocolate we use cocoa butter, pressed directly from the crushed cocoa beans. The smooth, creamy taste comes predominately from the full cream milk and Bourbon vanilla. Available in 100g and 35g bars.
Let me tell you, using real cocoa butter and bourbon vanilla makes a world of difference. Intense vanilla with a smooth, creamy sweet (but not sickly sweet) flavor. I gobbled up this bar in just over a week and really had to restrain myself. I'll definitely be having this one again in the future!
Partially eaten -- Michel Cluizel's Noir aux Ecorces d'Orange and Green & Black's Organic Hazelnut & Currant. Still un-opened in the drawer -- Cafe Tasse's Extra Noir and Vosges' Calindia Bar. More on those later!
What's your favorite chocolate bar?
