This month the Magnificent Creations are totally tropical. Imagine you’re lying on the warm sand, a gentle breeze swaying in the branches above your head, making the shadows dance all around you. It’s midday, and the waves are lapping rhythmically on the shore, calling you to them.
I don’t know about you, but I haven’t been on a beach like that in a while, but if I close my eyes I can feel my head fill with blue, feel the sand between my toes and hear the fishermen landing the day’s catch on Puerto Maya, the beach below my farm in Venezuela.
This letterbox sized Tasting Box contains 10 x 50g chocolates, including 2 Magnificent Creations which are limited edition chocolates made specially for my Tasting Boxes
4 x single estate dark bars: Las Trincheras 72, San Agustin 88, San Agustin , Sambirano 71
4 x flavoured dark bars: Luscious Orange, Ginger Lime and 100% cacao Orange & Almond, 100% cacao Raisin Hazelnut
2 Magnificent Creations
– Mango Cashew Chilli. Sur del Lago 70 dark chocolate with mango, cashews & chilli. These totally tropical plants all grow in a riot around my house on the farm. The chilli brings out the flavour in the mango, cutting through its fragrant sweetness, and the lightly toasted cashews bring a little crunch
– Totally Tropical. Sur del Lago 70 dark chocolate with pineapple & lemongrass. Pineapples are a joyous fruit, and all that happiness is captured in this chocolate. The pineapple and lemongrass dance with pure abandon to a totally tropical beat.
