Here I present to you two vastly different chocolate bars, both of which I entered into with firmly-set expectations and both of which confounded these expectations just as firmly.
In the blue corner, we have…
Chuao Chocolatier Firecracker
Chuao Chocolatier makes one of my favourite flavoured dark chocolate bars, the Chinita Nibs with caramelised cacao nibs and nutmeg. I have also thoroughly enjoyed the Spicy Maya bar with pasilla chilli, cayenne pepper, and cinnamon. Consequently, when I saw this Firecracker bar in a Food Emporium store in New York, I did a little happy dance. I love chilli in chocolate, I love salt in chocolate, and popping candy? What fun!
To find out which of these chocolate made me nauseous and which delighted me, head over to my new domain, where this very post is now housed. Please do – it’s just one more little click. Hurrah!
