Chocolate Amatller Milk Chocolate Leaves

Milk chocolate leaves from Spanish chocolatier Amatller.

Cacao Sampaka Dark Chocolate Arabica Coffee

It’s slightly strange to see chocolate that doesn’t have a cacao percentage listed on the packaging. There’s plenty of nutritional information and a comprehensive list of ingredients, but nothing about the beans used or how much of them went into making these two 50g slabs.

Delaviuda Bonbones

Two years ago, I looked at some milk chocolate truffles by Delaviuda, which I found to be pleasant eatables. Now I return with a box of dark chocolate dessert cups with a series of praline fillings. Like before, the box …

Cacao Sampaka Gin & Tonic

Cacao Sampaka are a Spanish chocolate company, with shops in Spain, Portugal, the Middle East & Japan. They currently have an online store in the UK and I think you can expect to see more of them over here soon. …

Chocovic Jaina and Nayarit

Chocovic is a Spanish company that not only makes blocks for Joe Public to buy and enjoy but also delivers huge bags of melts and slabs for serious chefs such as Barcelona chef and chocolatier, Ramon Morato. His book, …

Chocolat Factory Pocket Tube

Here’s something a little unusual from Spain’s Chocolat Factory – a tube of ‘beanbits and cocoa’. I believe I have mentioned Chocolat Factory’s award winning packaging in previous reviews, and this is certainly a great use for a cigar tube. Inside …

Valor 70% With Banana

I seem to have stumbled on another Spanish company. But this time, what drew me to it wasn’t the country of origin, it was the addition of banana. Banana and chocolate are paired often in shakes and ice cream, but …

Delaviuda Chocolate Leche Truffles

You don’t come across much Spanish chocolate in the U.S., or maybe in any country, even if they are the ones credited with “discovering” chocolate. This company is named Delaviuda “Of the Widow” because after Manuel Lopez died in 1927, …

Chocolat Factory Chocolate Sunflower Seed Bar

I recently found myself in Spain again, and was delighted to discover that there’s a Chocolat Factory outlet in the airport. Naturally, I re-supplied with Chocolate & Pear Jam, but I also took time to select a handful of new …

Chocolat Factory – The Pot

This is the other item I bought from the makers of the lovely Pear & Chocolate jam I found in Spain a while back. Had my Spanish been up to scratch, I would have known that ‘crackania’ are almonds, and ‘coco’ …

Lindt Excellence Poire Intense

After my recent spate of ‘oddball’ reviews I thought I’d pop in something a little more ‘normal’ – a Lindt bar I bought in Spain a little while ago. Another member of the ‘Intense’ range, I hadn’t seen this in the …

Trapa Rhubarb & Aloe Vera White Chocolate

Spain again for this particular oddity (actually the second bar I have seen with Aloe in it, and also the second white chocolate and rhubarb combination I have tried) from the people who made the lemon & pepper bar I …

Trapa Lemon Fantasy

Whilst browsing the shelves of the Corte Inglés (a well known chain of Spanish supermarkets) I came across a couple of bars made by Trapa. There are a total of five bars in their Swiss range, and this one contains black …

Chocolat Factory Pear & Chocolate Jam

One of the things I love best about travelling is the coming across small independent companies who put their heart and soul into making top notch chocolates. Sometimes they can be very ‘serious’ artisans like Signor Aguzzi in Milan, and …

Xocoa Gold

Before I proceed, a little history. When I was 9 my parents bought me a sweet shop (well, they thought they were buying a business opportunity, but I was 9). I lived in the shop for three years and consumed …
