Sometimes something lands on the door mat that you really love the look of. Occasionally it disappoints but this hit the spot very nicely. The product was Divine Chocolate and from my first taste I knew it was for me. The packaging exuded quality and I immediately thought that a selection pack would make a beautiful gift for a loved one. The question that presented itself was if the chocolate was as good as the branding. It was.
I loved the combo of chocolate and raspberry (which is one of my favourites) with the raspberry providing a lovely balance against the dark chocolate. With neither being sweet it was perfect for me. The dark chocolate with almonds and raisins also delighted and provided a nice alternative to the sweet more commercial offerings. Both the 70% and 85% dark chocolate were as good as expected.
Two flavours that I will be ordering in the future will be the ginger and orange (70% dark chocolate) and the mango and coconut, again with 70% dark chocolate. Both sound delicious!
I was going to write a lengthy piece about Divine (44% owned by fair-trade farmers) and it’s story but to be honest the website is so laden with information that there is little point. I strongly recommend paying it a visit – www.divinechocolate.com
