Late mornings, after coffee, a little A. Morin’s is perfect to start the day. Soft and warming, it is a lovely taste for a cool summer morning.
Very bright/fruit forward with almost some tang to it. Dark/rich background. Very good.
The texture on this chocolate is so smooth and melts in your mouth. Fruity notes.
Sweden’s Standout Chocolate really does standout from the crowd! The dark chocolate they make is bright and expressive across their entire line, but it’s the flavored chocolates that really shine. The Spruce Shoots is uniquely Scandinavian but you don’t need to be Swedish to enjoy the berry like flavor. The Euro Blueberry ( AKA bilberry) and the Currant are similarly a great pairing of fresh tasting fruit and smooth dark chocolate. A nice balance of familiar and exotic for folks who want to try something a bit different but aren’t yet ready to try Norwegian Fjak Reindeer Moss or Gjetost (brown caramelized goat cheese) chocolates.
I wanted something really special for decorating my most recent birthday cake (delightfully decadent chocolate mousse cake from the local fancy grocery store) and these little beauties were absolutely perfect- they gave both whimsy and an extra oomph of deliciousness. Expensive- absolutely, would I get them again? For a really special occasion, yes!
