cardamom organic white chocolate artisan bar

I know I’m deviating from the salty chocolates with this one, but since I also have a soft spot for white chocolate I had to try it when I bought Rococo’s sea salt bar.

The smell of cardamom envelops you when you unwrap the bar. The chocolate melts smoothly in your mouth and you can feel the cardamom grains. It is sweet, but not too sweet, and although cardamom is the main flavour, there is a slight taste of lemon that provides a nice contrast. I was surprised that I liked this chocolate so much and I’m open to trying other spices in chocolate, but I’m yet to see if they can compete with my beloved salted chocolates.
