Rococo Venus Nipples & Lips

Posted by in Chocolate Reviews on August 22 2011 | Leave A Comment

This intriguing box of body parts was sent to me by Rococo’s lovely PR people as a kind of ‘get well’ gift after a recent illness. I have to say, it did the trick and helped cheer me up the moment I opened the box. It’s not every day somebody sends you nipples.

As it turns out, these nipples are very tasty indeed. Inside each white chocolate dome is a dark chocolate ganache flavoured with Tia Maria and vodka. The ganache is firm, but smooth and delicious with just the right amount of flavour. The alcohol is definitely there, but it’s never overpowering.

The coffee bean on top is actually solid chocolate, but it is coffee flavoured. I’m not a big fan of coffee flavoured chocolate, but there’s so little of it here I quite enjoyed it as a contrast to the other favours.

It did leave me wondering quite how the idea for alcohol and coffee flavoured nipples came about, but I thought it best not to investigate this question too deeply.

Halfway through munching on my second nipple, I realised it may have been more appropriate to start with the lips. After all, they were what grabbed my attention in the first place.

But underneath that ruby-red lipstick, they’re just not quite as exciting as the nipples. These are solid dark chocolate with a painted white chocolate outer layer. There’s no fancy flavours going on here, just an average dark chocolate of unspecified origin or cocoa content dressed up in fancy clothes.

But they are, of course, fun to stick in the front of your mouth while pretending you’re a harlot. Everyone does that, right?

In summary, this is a fun little gift that you’d probably buy for your partner rather than your grandmother. The lips will draw you in, but the nipples are where the action is at. Luckily you get six nipples and four pairs of lips per box, so there’s plenty of chance to share and come up with your own innuendos.

They’re available from Rococo’s three London shops or to buy online from their website.
