Needing a pick me up this morning I reach for this dark mint bar that looks promising! And indeed I was not disappointed. The natural peppermint flavour was strong and its a great way to freshen up!

Peppermint creams, sweet minty fondant filling surrounded by a dark thick chocolate coating. You really can’t go wrong with these. Cadbury’s UK has certainly created a winner with Fry’s Peppermint Creams:
Whittaker’s 72% Ghana Peppermint. It exemplifies Pavlov’s theory of conditioning as those words just make your mouth water and you can’t help but imagine the rich dark chocolate with a minty sweet center melting on your palate… hmmmm….
But wait, there’s more. Pair that with a cup of coffee, preferably black and here you have a perfect match.
I experimented a few ways to enjoy this pairing, one) breaking off a square of chocolate and dipping it into the coffee before consuming it, two) eating a piece of chocolate, followed by a sip of coffee, and three) placing a piece of chocolate in my mouth and having a sip of coffee, allowing the chocolate to melt with the coffee. I must say that last trial was a winner! But you have to have a cup of fresh coffee as it doesn’t work so well when it’s cold. The chocolate melted wonderfully, and the mint soft center oozed out, blending the flavours nicely. Hmmm…yum. Ignoring the food on the table, I proceed to order my refill of coffee and continue my minty chocolate feast.
