I've always been a huge lover of chocolate, and when Lily O'Brien's asked if I wanted to review some of their chocolate bars, it was a straight yes. I received a selection of their 80g bars (£2.00 each)* that come in six different flavours including Salted Caramel which sounds like it would be beautiful. The flavours I have been trying out are Orange & Bergamot Ganache, Peppermint Crunch, Dulce de Leche, Caramel Crunch and Malted Chocolate Crunch. Some of the bars come in both Milk and Dark chocolate which should suit everyone's chocolate needs.
The Orange & Bergamot Ganache was one of the flavours that I wasn't sure what to expect. Orange and bergamot are well known to be a match made in heaven but I'd never tried it with chocolate. Once you snap a piece of the chocolate the smooth ganache filling oozes out, tasting of fragrant orange with a citrus twist of bergamot and it left me wanting more. I've never been a huge fan of fruit mixed with chocolate and would usually pick up something different but I would most definitely pick this up. This flavour even won a Great Taste Award!
The Dulce de Leche bar was another interesting bar as it's made with marbled dark chocolate that is rippled with caramel infused white chocolate. It's one of the bars I wish I had taken a separate photo of but in all honesty it was the first one I wanted to try and my stomach got the better of me as I had a feeling it was going to be the most creamy bar, and boy was I right. I knew exactly what to expect when trying the Malted Chocolate Crunch as it reminded me of Maltesers which are a household favourite. The milk chocolate melted quickly as the pieces aren't too thick, leaving you with sweet and crispy malt pieces.
