Anthon Berg Chocolate Coffee Drinks

Posted by in Chocolate Reviews on October 28 2008 | Leave A Comment

I found these a few weeks ago and they appealed because they looked, well, cute.

Anthon Berg is a Danish chocolate company that’s been around since 1884 even has the Royal Danish Court seal of approval. I’ve seen their liqueur-filled chocolates around at Christmas time and are aware that they’re often chosen as posh gifts but have never tried them. Until now – except these ones don’t have any alcohol in them, which is either a plus or a minus depending on your needs.

Shaped like large take-out coffee cups, they’re rather elegantly wrapped and come in four flavours – Espresso, Cappuccino, Toffee Macchiato and Vanilla Frappe. Coffee and chocolate are two strong delights that have always complemented each other but I’ve mostly seen coffee as a creamy, pale filling and was eager to see what Anthon Berg was going to make of them.

Unpeeled, they don’t look as attractive – sturdy bullets instead of funky cups but I was more concerned with what was inside the shell. I started with the mildest – Vanilla Frappe and was pleasantly surprised at the noticeable vanilla crème flavour inside the runny dark filling. Toffee Macchiato also had a lovely burnt sugar flavour that emerged through the rich coffee overtones.

Capppuccino was also very nice, but I’d be struggling to differentiate between it and the Vanilla Frappe if blindfolded; but that’s not really a complaint. The Espresso was my favourite – strong syrupy coffee that burst out of the good quality 55% dark chocolate. It was comforting to read that ground coffee beans, vanilla and coffee concentrate were among the usual list of ingredients.

These would make nice gift to give a coffee-and-chocolate lover or to serve with your own brew to your guests after dinner. Or, as I did, on my lonesome with a glass of cold milk or iced coffee. I had these little beauties at 11:30pm and was grateful that they didn’t keep me awake for too long afterwards.
