Chocolate bars are Amelia's latest creation adding to her range of crystallised flora dipped in chocolate and decorated with gold or silver leaf and bespoke truffles. Amelia does not compromise on quality, taste, indulgence and purity. This focus and attention to detail is heaped upon this bar from beginning to end. The packaging is superb!
|Dark Mandarin Edition 01|
Amongst the fruity aroma of the dark chocolate there is just a tiny hint that orange (organic mandarin oil) has been used in the making of this bar. As soon as you put a chunk of chocolate in your mouth the subtle mandarin oils are released. I expected the mandarin to be a little stronger in flavour but it is a delicious bar of chocolate. There is no bitterness from the chocolate or from the mandarin oil.
This is a lovely bar of chocolate that has been beautifully presented and perfectly made. However, I think the mandarin flavour was a little thin for my taste but I'm really nit picking. Again Amelia's bar scores a high 9/10. £5.60 for a 100g bar is not for the faint hearted in these austere times but if it's quality you're looking for it is money well spent. To buy online click here.
