If you read this blog often you'll know that in 2016 I became a massive fan of Solkiki and the chocolate that they produce. I had a friend who was thoughtful enough for my Christmas present to not only repurchase some chocolate products that were the highest scoring of 2016, yum, but also to get me something new to try from a chocolate company, Solkiki, I was quite clearly a fan of. So arrived this delicious looking Eggnog with Spiced Mandarin White Chocolate bar on Christmas morning.
I absolutely adore eggnog flavoured things; albeit not in alcohol form so I was delighted to see that Solkiki had kept this bar alcohol free. The addition of the spiced mandarin also sounded equally exciting to add another flavour dimension to the eat.
As with all of Solkiki's chocolate bars this is raw, organic and vegan. This is reflected in the thicker, richer, texture of the bar, clearly highlighting the use of raw cacao butter with its longer melt. This bar is also dotted with small pieces of mandarin, thankfully though they are small enough to not affect or impede the texture of the bar but instead to add a pleasant spiced fruity undertone.
In fact once again, as with all of the other Solkiki bars I've tried, the balance and flavour of this bar is delicious. Its creamy, sweet and lightly spiced with a lovely zesty flavour added from the mandarin, I found it incredibly moreish and perfect to warm me up on a cold winter's day!
Thankfully, unlike many Christmas chocolates, Solkiki still have some of this flavour available online, I'm considering buying another bar before it disappears again....
