Patric - Madagascar Chocolate 75%
Good Food Awards 2013
In case you haven't picked up on it, we're huge fans of Patric. This is a terrific example of chocolate done right. The complexity achieved in a bar with so few ingredients is astounding. This bar has a touch of toffee and expresso notes that follow with citrus undertones that are extremely long lasting. It has an appropriate amount of bitterness for a 75% chocolate bar that ends with a clean melt-in-the-mouth goodness. Let your body know that the meal is over with this delightful treat.
This bar's passionate devotees have called it the espresso of Madagascar chocolate for its intensity, depth, and complexity of flavor, including citrus and wine notes. It is simply perfect enjoyed as an aperitif before dinner, or as a post-meal digestif If you love dark chocolate, this bar is truly a must!
