Some years ago, long before I started writing for Chocablog, I discovered Australian Homemade chocolates in a store in Amsterdam, of all places. I remembered them as being very pretty to look at (they were the first chocolates I’d seen with the pretty printed patterns). I also remembered them as being quite delicious. With this in mind, I picked up a (rather plain-looking) box of nine beautiful “dreamers”, concentrating on the white chocolate with a few forays into milk and dark.
So here’s what’s inside the box:
White chocolate with milk chocolate nutty filling – Both creamy and crunchy and very strongly nutty. Quite sweet, as you’d expect from a white chocolate.
White chocolate with soft chocolate caramel filling – soft, creamy and sweet. I could taste the chocolate more than the caramel but it was a very pleasant combination
White with coconut orange – Very light and fluffy inside. Zesty with a distinct but delicate coconut edge and noticeable small orange chunks inside.
Milk chocolate with almonds, nuts and chocolate – tasted like very delicate marzipan inside. Blended well with the chocolate and was quite rich.
Milk chocolate with almond filling – tasted quite similar to the other almond milk chocolate. Felt more condensed than the other ones.
Milk chocolate with almonds – again very similar to the other almond offerings. I wasn’t quite sure what the difference is, but it was an enjoyable chocolate anyway.
White chocolate with nuts – again very similar to the nutty offerings. See above.
Dark chocolate with mixed nuts – most satisfyingly crunchy, rich and strong. Quite sweet for dark chocolate.
White chocolate with almonds – boozy, sweet and delicate. Possibly my favourite, along with the coconut orange one.
All in all, this is a great selection of chocolates and I am now curious to taste their other milk and dark chocolate offerings. It’s a shame you can’t seem to be able to get them in this country!
