Food Review: Rococo Chocolates 'Chocolate Bee Bars'



Rococo Chocolates are a luxury treat, offering delicious chocolates filled with natural goodness. They are a company that outright refuse the use of artificial products, sourcing the best ingredients and keeping their customers healthy and happy with their sweet treats.

I was lucky enough to sample the following from the 'Bee Bar'* Collection, distinguished by the cute bee pattern upon the mould:

37% Organic Milk Chocolate Bee Bar - The sweet classic. This slow melting treat is created using cocoa beans harvested from Rococo Chocolates 'home farm' in North Grenada. Extra cocoa butter is added to the 37% cocoa solid bar to create its creamy texture and rich flavour, sweetened further by a hint of caramel. This bar is simply delicious, defining Rococo Chocolates craftsmanship in its best and plainest form. 

Rose Organic Milk Chocolate Bee Bar - This floral treat is perfumed and fragrant, bringing back memories of my grandmothers garden. Rose infused, this chocolate is the most delicious of the bunch! The distinct flavour is due to the key ingredient pure rose otto, a fragrant and flavoured oil created from steam distilling roses. Think the best turkish delight you could possibly try. 

Sea Salt Organic Milk Chocolate Bee Bar - The Sea Salt Bee Bar was my favourite of the selection, a mix of savoury and sweet and done so to perfection. The peculiar bar is ingrained with delicate grains of sea salt, leaving  its taste and creating a dramatic contrast on the old taste buds.  Rococo's founder, Chantal, was inspired 'after walking along a beach eating an ice cream with the salt in the sea air catching on her lips'. Although wonderful, I would be wary of this salt infused bar, if you get greedy, you will be feeling a tad sea sick!

Cardamom Organic White Chocolate Bee Bar - This was the most unique bar for me. It is infused with cardamom, a luxury aromatic ground spice and a flavour that I have not experienced before. It is prominent within the bar, offering a bitty and flavoursome texture against the sweetness of the white chocolate.  

These 20g bars are priced at £1.30 each and worth every penny for a delicious ethically-sourced treat.


Have you tried Rococo Chocolates? What is your favourite type of chocolate?
