I was very fortunate to be able to have a taste of Chuao Chocolatier, with trying the following flavors:
Ravishing Rocky Road Bar- Salted caramelized almonds and chewy marshmallows pave the way in milk chocolate. Fluffy marshmallows cozy up to the crunch of salted caramelized almonds in silky milk chocolate. One part classic and two parts sexy, Ravishing Rocky Road is simply irresistible.
Spicy Maya Bar - Seductive cinnamon, pasilla chile and warming cayenne bedded in dark chocolate. A warm cinnamon embrace, velvety chocolate, and an infusion of cayenne and pasilla chile just enough heat to melt your heart. Spicy Maya is the perfect mix of sweet and seductive.
I am a chocolate lover, I have been since I was a little kid, chocolate was my favorite sweet. As I grew up I still love chocolate, but now I look for flavored chocolate, and the more unique the better the chocolate tastes. I no longer eat cheaper chocolate, for me it must be well made delicious chocolate.
I was able to try out two flavors from Chuao, Spicy Maya Bar and the Ravishing Rocky Road Bar. When the package arrived, my parents were over to visit and as soon as my mother heard that there was chocolate in the package she was very interested, and I sure had her attention. I seem to get my love of chocolate from my mom, so with all of this chocolate we were both in heaven!
The Ravishing Rocky Road Bar it is full of amazing flavor. The salt on the almonds worked well with the sweet and there was just the right amount of salty flavor. It was like a great smores with almonds! Just divine. The marshmallows in the bar we not small insignificant marshmallows, nooo they were large marshmallows that were delicious. This was my favorite Chuao bar. I could have eaten so many of these, they were so very delicious. But for the sake of my waistline, I am glad I just shared this one.
The Spicy Maya Bar , this bar just sounds amazing right? Spice and chocolate go so well together, the combination of the cinnamon chocolate, and an infusion of cayenne and pasilla chile it has just a touch of spice. This was not an overly hot bar that you could not eat and enjoy, the richness of the dark chocolate worked well with the light spice. The spice for me was just a touch but for me the cinnamon stood out the most.. delicious.
My mom said the bar remind her of candy she had in Mexico, with better tasting chocolate she loved it of course I was right and we all ate it up and wanted more! Each bar retails for $4.99. Chuao Chocolatier is an award-winning company that has so many amazing chocolate flavors. How about potato chips in chocolate and panko bread crumbs with sea salt in chocolate? Wow, I will have to pick up some more of these amazing sounding flavors soon!
Are you a fan of exotic chocolate? What is your favorite flavor of chocolate? I would love to know.
