Taste testing...Bizarre Bars!

Posted by BDI Works on

 

There's nothing we like better at The Chocolate Emporium than getting together with friends and family to taste testing a new range of chocolate to sample how the general public might find the latest exciting additions to the catalogue. Enter...the Bizarre Bars! Perfect as Christmas stocking fillers, these novelty chocolate bars look and taste wonderful and bring together many unusual flavour combinations to create a memorable chocolate experience. 

Our participants...

Billy Hardwick, 27, university student and secret midnight nosher

Kate Pamplin, 27, care worker and addicted to duvet days with treats

Lucy Brooker, 38, administrator and baker extraordinaire

Sue Pamplin, of indeterminate age (she won't tell me), receptionist and expert dessert maker

And Joe Ford, 37, blogger and owning the ultimate sweet tooth

Campfire S'more

Banoffee Bread

Joe - 'I'm not usually keen on banana, but this is quite subtle and not overpowering'

Americana 

Kate - 'Quite balanced flavours, rather pleasant on the tongue' 

Lucy -'Generous piece of pretzel and a pleasing taste of nuts'

Joe - 'I love peanut butter but this isn't very strong, so those who aren't as keen can still enjoy this'

Burning 

Kate - 'One for chilli fans only...'

Sue - 'Hot!' 

Billy - 'Like a time bomb, no burn at first and then an explosion!'

Banging 

Billy - 'A delicious white chocolate taste'

Lucy - 'You can really taste the marshmallow'

Strawberry Lemonade

Sue - 'A fizzy, pretty chocolate bar' 

Billy - 'An amazing combination of lovely zingy flavour, but it isn't too powerful'
