Delicious chocolate that changes lives

I must admit that I absolutely love chocolate.  I feel more reassured in life knowing that I have some chocolate hidden in the house that only I know about, so I was delighted to try chocolate from a company called Choc Affair.  I received the Library Collection which consists of four of their best selling bars in a smart presentation box.  Each bar was wrapped in gold paper complete with a beautiful paper sleeve design reflecting the taste combinations that lay inside.  I think this makes a brilliant Christmas present as it is not the standard box of supermarket chocolates which look terribly boring alongside the Choc Affair chocolate.

I started with the salted caramel.  This is largely because I am a fan of salted caramel I think a lot of people get this wrong and make the chocolate to salty.  I need not have worried the creamy caramel flavour melts in your mouth with a slight sea salt hit afterwards – perfect.  My children couldn’t get enough of this chocolate and they would usually shy away from the idea of anything being salted.  Next, I or should that be ‘we’ tried the peach and raspberry white chocolate. I don’t think I have ever had peach chocolate before but it is definitely my favourite now as it was very creamy and delicate with a fruits of the summer taste combined with the comforting hug of creamy chocolate.

The orange and geranium chocolate transported me back to my childhood as it just has a very subtle hint of Turkish delight flavour about it but with the smoothest chocolate, I have ever tasted.  Also a big hit with the children.

I have to say I am not naturally a dark chocolate fan but the dark chocolate infused with lime and sea salt has a sharpness that all dark chocolate fans will love and does go down particularly well with my morning coffee.

Not only do Choc Affair make the best and creamiest chocolate, I have an admiration for a company that can look at a very full and competitive marketplace that chocolate retail is and just go for it anyway!  Not only that, they are creating a better tasting chocolate bar than the large confectionary companies.   Through their initiatives in Colombia and Uganda, they know the origin of their cocoa beans and are making a real difference to the lives of the cocoa farmers they work with – fabulous!

Can I also just come back to the packaging?  I am a big fan those simple touches from the gold paper to the beautiful paper wrappers that create a such a luxurious feel to a £2.75 chocolate bar.   I would happily give this as a Christmas stocking filler or extra gift for Christmas as it looks special.  Not only that, all the Choc Affair packaging to made a few miles from their factory.  A great combination of supporting local British Businesses and improving lives in developing countries.

My children are now convinced I have a direct line to Willy Wonka and I think they will be looking for a bar of Choc Affair’s chocolate in their stocking on Christmas morning.  What could be better for a child on Christmas morning than a delicious treat of chocolate to fire their taste buds and maybe a Roald Dahl book to ignite their imagination?
