Something Orange from Greytown
Recently at the Essential Ingredient, I stopped at a display of new chocolate from New Zealand. There was a salesgirl amongst the piles of chocolate, arranging them, and when she saw me at the counter, she came forward. As she was totalling my purchases, I mentioned that I'd been lingering by that stand earlier and wondered what it was like. "Oh, would you like a tasting?" she asked casually. As if it meant nothing! As if I would dream of saying no! She recommended the sea salt mix, but as this was made with milk chocolate, it really wasn't to my taste, although the saltiness was interesting and made me think of this dessert which I've long wanted to try. I enjoyed the lemongrass chocolate, but felt that this was a flavour combination I'd enjoy more in a dessert rather than in eating chocolate. And the strawberry could not be found in the pepper and strawberry . I don't remember the rest, but I do know that the one I had been debating over - Tangerine, was not available for tasting in the tiny portions.
But I bit the bullet and it was mine.
Shoc, in Greytown, New Zealand, produce an amazing range of flavours. I liked the Tangerine, but I'll have to hunt out the coconut!
