You can probably tell from the photograph above why this bar caught my eye. You can see the bar through the packaging and it’s absolutely packed with crystallised ginger. It must have made an impact because I bought this without even thinking about it… and I don’t even like ginger!
I’m not usually a fan of plastic packaging, especially on an organic product, but I have to admit that seeing the actual chocolate bar through the clear plastic box is probably what sold it to me.
As you can see, once out of the decidedly non-organic plastic box, the bar looks even more tempting. A deliciously dark looking chocolate, heavily studded with sparkly ginger chunks. But the clever bit is underneath…
Yes, the chunks are on the bottom. Clever.
But of course, the important thing is how it tastes. And as you might have guessed, the overwhelming flavour here is of ginger. Lots of ginger – a little too much for my liking. But those big chunks do add a wonderful texture to that bar, and the taste of the rich, smooth, 62% dark chocolate still comes through – and is utterly delicious.
This is definitely one for people who like a
bit lot of ginger. It’s obviously been made with a lot of care and the result is a wonderful, chunky, hand made bar that’s packed with flavour.
I’m looking forward to trying some of The Cocoa Tree’s other offerings.
