Chocolate Chilli Mango, by Rockstar

We’re all different. Some of us have excellent taste and love salted caramel. Then there are those that don't. Equally there are those of us can recall their first food experience - the first time they tried salted caramel. Maison Laduree at Harrods in 2000… My first salted caramel macaron… Probably my first ever macaron but I fell in love with salted caramel, my first understanding of that delight of sweet and salty before it was everywhere.

So when I see salted caramel, I am quite discerning. Some might say picky.

Chocolate Chilli Mango
I found Chocolate Chilli Mango on Facebook and saw its salted caramel chocolate and it was at a market near me. What did I have to lose except stomach and calorie space? I think I bought two salted caramel chocolates and walked away to taste them on my own. The caramel had been taken to a point of darkness so the complexity was beautifully deep and rich; it was well cut through by the salt and the dark chocolate. I'd rate it as one of the best salted caramel chocolates I'd had...  And believe me, in the last 17 years since I began my salted caramel journey I've tried a lot to compare!

I recently scored a box of Chocolate Chilli Mango’s spring chocolates - the presentation is just divine, so pretty - anyone would be so happy to receive these… most likely not so happy to share them!

Chocolate Chilli Mango, lait caramel
I didn't think the Lait Caramel could compete with the salted caramel; it's a more delicate flavour, more subtle but absolutely sublime.

Chocolate Chilli Mango, yuzu hazelnut gianduja
I'm a little odd and don't like chocolate citrus combos... the yuzu over hazelnut gianduja just works - sharp with smooth.

Chocolate Chilli Mango, sesame praline
The sesame praline is oh so simple - with fresh made hazelnut praline, vanilla and salt. A little bite of bliss and the delicate design… Swoon.

The Palet D’or and the wild honey chocolates are equally heavenly. A box full of perfection. A box full of joy.
