This is my favourite chocolate at the moment.
It is a bar of dark chocolate (52% Cocoa).
And the flavour is liquorice.
With sea salt.
This is a strange combination, of course.
I am sure that Morrisons are not the first people to do it.
(Own label products almost always follow as opposed to lead).
But whatever the backstory, Morrisons do this very well.
The texture plays a part in its success.
The chocolate is a creamy kind of dark chocolate.
Because there’s not such a high percentage of Cocoa that the bar becomes hard and slow to melt.
And the sea salt (there’s a lot) appears as crunchy crystals.
It’s not overly salty and the chocolate/liquorice/salt balance is just right.
So, if you are after a surprising and pleasing sweet thing for after your dinner.
As you sit down to watch Gogglebox this Friday.
It’ll cost you £1.34.
Or a multiple thereof if, like me, you’re a fan.
(Fairtrade, rich and flavoursome, with mellow liquorice notes and sea salt, No artificial colours or flavours, Vegetarian).
PS The web link describes one bar as ‘5 servings’.
I think it’s a typo.
It should read, ‘1’.
