Happy weekend everyone!
I’ve got a review of an indulgent treat today, perfect timing for the weekend. I was given these as a gift a few weeks ago, and having never heard of Amelia Rope before I had to investigate.
Look how pretty the bars are! The colours are gorgeous and specific to each type of chocolate that they produce. Having not bought a chocolate bar in about 2/3 years it was a bit of an indulgent thing to have four whole bars made available to me!
These retail on the Amelia Rope website for around £5.60 a bar so this is the most expensive bar of chocolate that I have ever eaten. If I had known this before I’d eaten it all (along with my family, I’m not that much of a pig!) I would have been horrified but quite honestly……it was worth every bite and crumb that I could get my hands on.
The White Edition chocolate with Pistachio Nut and Sea Salt was the best chocolate I’ve ever tasted in my life. The white chocolate is the smoothest creamiest mix and this is what you taste first; the pistachio nuts follow and taste really lovely with the chocolate; lastly you get a hit of sea salt and its the most perfect combination of sweet and salt.
I would never have imagined these flavours working but its quite honestly, phenomenal.
On the packaging the ingredients are listed and are a relatively short list, its great that there are minimal additional preservatives and chemicals.
Also I do love brown paper packaging and so this appeals to me greatly!
Just look at the arrangement of pistachios on the chocolate, yum!
The next bar was the Pale Rose edition with 39% cocoa from Ecuador. The chocolate in this was really nice but unfortunately I couldn’t get my head around the Rose flavours; my parents absolutely loved it though and were the willing recipients!
They likened it to eating Turkish Delight flavoured chocolate so if this is your thing, you’ll love it.
The third bar was the Pale Edition with 40% cocoa from Ecuador and was divine, just like a darker milk chocolate. The consistency was really smooth and it just melted in your mouth.
The Dark Edition was 75% cocoa from Tanzania and this was my second favourite. I hadn’t realised I liked dark chocolate as much as I did this, I couldn’t stop eating it!
It perfectly curbed any sweet cravings I had and I would fully recommend it to anyone.
Have you tried chocolate from Amelia Rope?
Apart from the website you can also buy from places like Liberty, Wholefoods, and Selfridges, sadly there aren’t any place that you can buy from in Wales yet.
Do you like ‘posh’ chocolate like I do? Have you tried and weird and wonderful chocolate creations like these? What would you recommend?
