M&S Organic Fairtrade Milk Chocolate With Rose

Posted by in Chocolate Reviews on April 3 2008 | Leave A Comment

This was another gift from my friend Paola. The last gift she gave me was the Chocolate Cellar’s Rose ‘N’ Chilli Chocolate, so I think she may have a thing about roses (or she’s trying to tell me something!?!). But I enjoyed the Rose ‘N’ Chilli chocolate, so I was looking forward to this.

The first thing I noticed about this organic, Fairtrade chocolate was that it was sealed in plastic. Even the wrapper notes that this is “currently non-recyclable”. I find this more than a little odd for an organic fair trade chocolate bar, and there’s no real need for it in this day and age.

That aside, and once I’d managed to break my way through the plastic, this turned out to be a wonderful bar of chocolate.

As you’d expect, it’s a solid milk chocolate bar, with rose oil in the chocolate itself. The milk chocolate itself is obviously made with quality ingredients. It’s deliciously creamy and chocolatey. The rose flavour is subtle but makes a real difference to the bar. Each little chunk tastes like a piece of Turkish Delight as it melts in your mouth.

I recommend breaking off a single chunk and letting it melt away slowly. It’s a wonderful refreshing, summery taste.

The one thing I did notice was that my brain was expecting a chilli hit which never came. I don’t know if that’s because I was conditioned by The Chocolate Cellar’s bar or if this M&S bar is actually missing something. The flavours are all so soft and subtle that it doesn’t really give you a satisfying chocolate ‘hit’. It would be quite easy to eat this whole bar in one go waiting for that hit to come. Luckily I have excellent self control. *cough*

I know there are people who actively dislike “rose” flavoured chocolate (often caused by being forced to eat bad turkish delight as a chilid, I find). If you’re one of those people, you may not like this. But you should still give it a go – it might just change your mind. It’s one of the nicest milk chocolate bars I’ve had in a long time.

    We had one of these at Xmas. I was going to review it but it slipped my mind (and it wasn’t mine anyway!)
    Good stuff, if you like slightly sweeter milk choc.

  2. I adore good Turkish delight and love anything rose-flavoured (future article on Haigh’s rose cremes will be done someday). However I reckon that rose would go even better with DARK chocolate rather than milk – counteracting the sweetness and heightening the perfume perhaps. Still the chocolate here still sounds pretty special though.

    Roast almond is sitting here at the moment. 36% cocoa and yet it tastes a lot richer. Maybe its the almonds, or maybe i’m a cocoa novice!
