Discover delicious dark, milk and flavoured chocolate in our 2018 Great Taste Awards Collection.
These bars really are the best of the best. They’ve all won stars in the 2018 Great Taste Awards. We’ve curated a collection of bars that truly represent the finest that the world of small batch, artisan chocolate has to offer.
Inside we’ve included four winners that we feel showcase the innovations, tastes and styles that can be found in craft chocolate today.
First is a chocolate bar crafted in Norway by Fjak. Fjak crafts its small batch chocolate in the depths of Hardangerfjord in Norway. Making chocolate since 2015, it was only late 2017 that Agur and Siv officially launched Fjak. Those two years acted as the experimental stage, where Agur and Siv endeavoured on the pursuit of crafting great chocolate – from ethics to flavour – with the vision of making production scalable from the get go. This bar is crafted from Madagascan cocoa from Akesson's plantation, with the addition of milk powder to create a beautifully creamy dark milk chocolate.
Next, we have a bar from one of the most awarded makers, Akesson's. Enjoy this Brazilian 75% dark chocolate, made from cacao grown on Bertil Akesson's farm – Sempre Firm. This is a smooth and fruity dark bar with an intensely roasted flavour. This is an expressive chocolate; earthier woody notes mix with the fruit (the local pitanga fruit), giving a hint of tobacco on the finish.
Next is an intense dark chocolate bar from Original Beans. This intense dark chocolate bar has a sherbet-like aroma. From the first bite, this is a rich, smooth chocolatey bar with notes of stoned fruit and hazelnut.
Finally, we have another bar from Akesson's. The same Brazilian beans as before, but made from just the cocoa butter. It’s subtly sweet, with a smoky profile.
This box is a wonderful way to share the spectacular flavours of single estate chocolate with friends and family.
