I won’t lie, when fellow food blogger Calli Kitson informed me World Chocolate Week was a real thing I almost dropped my phone (we were, in true blogger form, talking through Twitter means). So I instantly started sampling as many chocolate brands as possible and here are some of my favs.
1. Kennard Chocolates
These little chocolates are truly unique, with a diverse range of flavours they truly are exciting. In this box is: Triple Espresso – moulded in the shape of a nespresso capsule, this has a smooth coffee aftertaste and contains thick chocolate in the centre. Spice fruit up – this is a definite Christmas chocolate with flavourings of a Christmas cake. Smooth caramel – it’s thick and fudgy, whilst it lacks sweetness it is tasty. Peanut butter – its a peanut butter chocolate truffle. Need I say more?
Possible my favourite chocolates ever. This brand has been around since 1919 and has perfected there chocolates. With cafes as well as delivery services this brand is a great all rounded. Salted caramel – these were insanely good. Solid on the outside and oozing with salted caramel instead. Chocolate truffles – these tasted great once you got a bite inside, but for me their is slightly too much cocoa dust on the outside.
3. New York Cheesecake KitKat
So I wanted to add a chocolate bar which I found interesting but is also available on the high street. I had to try this after watching fellow foodie Maverick Baking review this bar on her YouTube I had to try. It’s a great chunky bar filled with flavour. With smooth taste and crunchy bite it’s a new favourite of mine.
I’ll be brief here as this brand is a new favourite of mine and I will be profiling them later this week on the blog. Arapina, much like Betty’s it’s a brand which delivers amazing chocolates as well as having it’s own cafe in London. I loved their chocolate coated nuts they’re dairy free but who could tell?!?!
5. Whittard – Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate
If you haven’t figured it out by now, I am a huge Peanut Butter fan! I just love it. So when I found out Whittard were releasing a Peanut Butter hot chocolate for Halloween I had to have it. And that’s exactly what I did. It’s packed with flavour, it’s incredibly intense and bold. I love the packaging and it’s the perfect chocolate treat for World Chocolate Week.
