most ridiculous chocolate flavours
. Banana chocolate is modestly delicious. I enjoy a chocolate who is straight forward with me.
Black Pearl Bar
. Includes ginger, wasabi and black sesame seeds infused dark chocolate. This is definitely a puzzle for the palate.
. Rich dark chocolate infused with lavender and cardamom. Lavender doesnt just belong in bathwater (although Id eat this while in a lavender scented bath forever if I could).
. Deep milk chocolate with sweet indian curry powder and coconut.
Goat Cheese and Pear Bonbon
. Dark chocolate with goat cheese, Pear Williams and crushed black pepper buttercream. This is the fanciest chocolate of all chocolates. It deserves a little bow tie, or maybe a monocle.
Mo s Bacon Bar
. This Vosges company really has this whole chocolate thing down. Deep chocolate with apple smoked bacon. Somewhere, Ron Swanson is shedding a silent tear of joy.
Kaffir lime chocolate
. Dark chocolate filled with caramel and kaffir lime leaves.
Lemon grass with peppercorn
. This beauty is white chocolate ganache infused with lemongrass, a hint of vodka and garnished with pink peppercorn. All you really have to say is ganache and vodka and Im pretty much sold.
Raspberry pink pepper truffles
. Truffles loaded with raspberry puree with a hint of ground pink peppercorns.
Red Fire Bar
. Mexican and chipotle chilies, ceylon cinnamon all melted into dark chocolate. I think this is the definition of it burns so good.
. A kick of ginger and chai essence all packaged in milk chocolatey goodness.
. Milk chocolate with goji berries and pink Himalayan salt. Im not sure what pink Himalayan salt actually is, but Ill eat it
Chocolate covered insects
. Not for the texturally unambitious.
Smoke And Stout Caramel Bar
. Is there anything better than beer or chocolate? Uh, yeah if those two things were combined. Vosges designed this masterpiece: dark chocolate infused with burnt sugar caramel, a hint of Alderwood smoked salt, and Rogue Ales Chocolate stout beer.
Mexican hot chocolate truffle
. Dark chocolate truffles infused with mexican hot chocolate flavors such as cayenne pepper and cinnamon.
Peanuts and Ketchup
. Peanuts and ketchup go together like a dolphin and a chainsaw. Why do they want to put them in to chocolate? Presumably just to ruin the integrity of a third party to help them feel better about their sick union.
. Seriously? Do we need this much crunch in our chocolate? Well.do we? I feel like I need to specify that these are uncooked ramen noodles found in this chocolate. That still doesnt make it too much less weird for me though.
. Things soy sauce is a worthy addition to; sushi, sashimi, and a few other dishes that do not contain chocolate whatsoever. I know there have been quite a few inventive Kit Kat flavourings released across this weird globe we live on, but this has gone too far.
. Seriously, what is going on in the world? We have enough problems on our planet with the threat of terrorism and the supposed on going war on drugs. Why do people feel the need to complicate things even further by making this monstrosity?
Cheese and Onion
. I get the cheese and onion flavouring of a potato chip. That does make sense given that they are a savoury delight. Chocolate however, should have nothing to do with that side of the fence. Leave the poor chocolate be.
. Just when you thought you had to source your vices individually, along comes this neat little package to help you kill yourself much more easily. You get all the health risks of tobacco along with the fattening sugar hit of chocolate.
. Despite my unwillingness to branch too far from home on the chocolate front, I will accept that quite often, coconut can be a wonderful addition to chocolate. Curry on the other hand; 3 questions? Why? Why? And Why?
Gin and Tonic
. I know that the world is becoming a place where all races are said to be melting in to one and one day in the future there will be no such things as racism. Im all for that. But we dont have to mix flavours that dont need to be together too
. This could be the worst of this list. What possible merit could there be in having the blood from a pig included in the list of unnecessary ingredients of chocolate? The blood is mixed with cinnamon and smoked Spanish paprika just to give it a bit of class.
. Black garlic is apparently a big deal in a lot of Asian cuisine. But I dont discriminate between the colours of garlic; I love the stuff. And yet again I find myself back to square one with it. Why do we need to put it in chocolate?
. This has all sorts of things in the mix. Its a truffle that has dark chocolate ganache with pear, fennel and anise seed..and also absinthe liqueur. Why would that be necessary? I hear you ask. Nobody knows.
. I am sure we are all totally cool with a bit of wine flavour incorporated in to our chocolate. It means we dont have to have a glass of wine to go with our chocolate (a perfect combo). But what is the deal with putting balsamic in the mix?
. Do you know what kimchi is? It is actually quite delicious despite the following description; a Korean dish consisting of fermented cabbage, possibly laced with garlic and or chili. So yeah, stick that in some chocolate
. I bet a lot of people in the Western world thought that the introduction of hummus would be fleeting; that it was a fad not unlike Pokemon. As it turns out, in some parts of the world, it is a staple. But why it has to be put in to chocolate I will never grasp. To be fair, it could be a bit of a horse and cart thing where people might claim it to be chocolate flavoured hummus.
