Mint, glorious mint! It started life in the Eastern Mediterranean but grows like a weed in an English garden, which may explain why people have tended to take it for granted. For years it just went in the peas, then it found a new life in Mojitos and Mint Tea, but the nature of the minty taste that comes to mind in all these things is pretty much the same. So you can guess what’s coming… cacao beans all taste different and so do mints!

2 Magnificent Creations special editions not found in any shop
– Apple Mint. Surabaya 54 milk chocolate with apple mint. The soft fruity apple mint gently entwines with the caramel notes of the milk chocolate. It dances the dance then leaves the chocolate to take the bow. This is a far cry from your average mint.
– Black Mint.Creamy white chocolate with black mint. A green goddess of a bar, to celebrate the rising sap and lengthening days of spring. I have refined whole mint leaves into smooth creamy white chocolate. Don’t be fooled by the name, Black Mint is in fact green through and through, with a delicate spring like freshness.
