International Chocolate Award Gold 2018
A wonderful crisp snap of the chocolate, followed by wafts of fudgy dark chocolate aromas, and is finished by the smooth gentle feel of juicey bright fruit on the tongue. This chocolate has mild bitterness and is wonderful balanced with tartness of the fruit and sugar to an instant favorite of ours.
