The Full Review
Beauty by name and beauty by taste.
How is it possible to delicately infuse lychees in rosewater and ensure the flavour shines through a rich smooth white chocolate ganache?
Well this is it – I present to you ‘Beauty’
Beauty captures a host of the most amazingly fresh delicious and fresh ingredients in one simple mouthful.
I am not a fan of white chocolate, it always seems to leave a weird film in my mouth and a slightly sickly feeling in my stomach. So a good start! This is coming from a girl who will typically only eat dark chocolate of 80% and above.
The smell was sweet, the rosewater jumped to the top and gently wafted around me.
One bite felt a crunch of deliciously smooth milk chocolate, followed by the most exquisite fruit taste I have experienced in a chocolate. You can actually taste every ingredient, first the lychee, followed by the raspberry and then you get a hit of rosewater. Simply divine.
Cleverly the sharpness of the lychee and scent of rosewater cut through the white chocolate and acted as a palate cleanser. I was not left with the usual weird texture in my mouth.
A chocolate for white chocolate lovers and for those who are yet to be convinced by it’s milky undertones; I urge you to give this chocolate a try.
