It’s funny how these days part of any trip away always involves a quick hunt around for new and unusual chocolate to bring to the attention of Chocablog readers.
Well, the other day I was in Vienna and I happened to come across the Manner shop in the town centre. Manner are famous manufacturers of wafers, nougat, sweets and chocolate. This little box of Idelfonso Nougat chocolate contained 48% cocoa chocolate and was very nicely put together for a small product. Each piece came banded with a quotation (in German) from various famous philosopher or other historical figure.
The chocolate itself was slightly too sweet but the nougat flavours came through well. The finishing flavours were definitely nougat and bittersweet chocolate. The mouthfeel was smooth and the balance of flavours never went too far in one direction.
A tasty little treat.
