The Full Review
This vibrant, colourful green chocolate jumps out from the box as soon as you peek inside.
I have never tasted tonka bean before; although I am all to aware it can be an overpowering flavour so I was immediately intrigued.
The smell of vanilla and cinnamon tickle your nose and I feel comforted and both excited about biting into this vibrant treat.
On my first bite, the filling is smooth, fruity, warm and I am blessed with a heady scent of vanilla and cinnamon.
The fruity flavour, gentle subtleness of vanilla followed by what I expect is the flavour of tonka bean all blend perfectly together. I feel like I have sipped on a fruity cocktail.
The cinnamon is very gentle and only comes through very carefully at the end. It’s like opening your Christmas stocking and finding a hidden present right at the bottom. It is both delightful and welcome.
Another truly authentic flavour combination, that just well…..works!
A chocolate for lovers of fruity ganache and the subtle yet perfect flavour of cinnamon and tonka bean.
