This chocolate is made from cocoa beans sourced from Menakao in Madagascar but given the Scottish touch from the Chocolate Tree makers in Edinburgh. It offers a very intense, punchy flavour which provides waves of interest and intrigue. Each bite seems to offer something different, but it always finishes with a red wine note on the tip of the tongue. Madagascar is noted for its red fruit flavours, and although, this may indeed be a generalisation, you should be able to tell that this seems to have a very slight edge of blackberry compote.
You'll find pieces around your mouth after you think it’s all gone, but you'll collect the deposits with your tongue for another hit of the delightful flavour.
The Chocolate Tree presents their chocolate in two 45g bars that are wrapped in 'golden' foil and then a splendid outer wrapper.
Ahead of receiving the new designs we are discounting the older formats - which still have a best before date of over a year hence.
