Day 274 – Mole chili

Interesting name for a chocolate flavour – Mole Chili. Nonetheless, the modern style packaging and dark notes it conjured up was enough for me to want to sample a piece.

The chocolate was smooth, but it surprisingly wasn’t as dark as I thought it would be nor was the hotness, hot enough. Meehhh. It didn’t do me, and I left it at one piece.

Day 37 – Not so hot

Ok so I tried another one of Conscious‘ chocolates, and again it failed to live up to expectations (see day 7). This ‘chili hot’ version wasn’t very strong and there was hardly a tingle of hotness on my tongue. It was quite dry and crumbly too.. are all raw chocolates like this or did I just get a bad run of theirs? I want to like them, I really do. But flavour and texture goes a long way!

Day 3 – Feelin’ hot hot hot

Today’s chocolate is presented to you by Lindt, the fine Swiss chocolatier that has been producing chocolate since 1845. With such experience they can proudly boast a number of premium products and someone thought quality should be made accessible to the masses, as they can be found in your local convenience store.

This little beauty was not found locally, and given my usual preference for their 70% I thought I’d give this one a whirl – Lindt Excellence Chilli (Dark). Ironically, it only states a minimum of 49% cocoa solids, which doesn’t sound very dark to me, hmm…

As with all their 80g bars, the chocolate comes in a fine slab in convenient 1.5″ squared pieces. This one is surprisingly sweet (or not so surprising given the low cocoa mass!) and the chilli slowly ebbs through the flavour, allowing you to finish off with a nicely warmed and spiced palate.

This was a little too sweet for my liking, but I did enjoy the little kick the chilli adds to it, balancing it out. Guess that was the plan.
