2 = Almost perfect. Keep going back for more and more
3 = Mind blowingly amazing. Perfect in every way
Kalamansi Lime Caramel – awarded 3 stars and here is some of what the judges had to say:
Beautiful finish and attractive presentation. Not too sweet, with a good zing from the lime. Good balance of chocolate with caramel and lime. Delightful appearance. Excellent cacao aroma. The shell is beautifully made. The Kalamansi character comes across well. Great balance with the light caramel. The finish is clean but with delightful long fruity notes both from the cacao and the filling – a well judged balance.
Blackcurrant Marshmallow – awarded 2 stars and the comments were:
Glorious highly inviting colour. The blackcurrant flavour is evident and tangy. Good natural flavour with no synthetic edge. The silky smooth mouthfeel is contrasted by the addition of whole blackcurrants. The consistency is akin to that of a well sprung mattress. Attractive colour and appearance. Pretty colour. Good sharp blackcurrant flavour and a pleasant texture.
Salted Chocolate Toffee & Crunchy Praline – awarded 1 star and this is what they said:
Good quality chocolate, well formed. The chocolate shell has a good snap. The praline is well flavoured and has a pleasant crunch with a nutty flavour.
