English Mint 70% Organic Dark Chocolate Bar (vegan)

£4

Description

Summerdown single estate English mint oil subtly blended with our organic, fair-trade 70% cacao dark chocolate from Nacional in Ecuador. Elegance personified.

The inclusion of pure Black Mitcham mint brings a palate cleansing, intense taste to the chocolate unlike some bars which use cheap imported peppermint oil blends from China and India. We love to eat this bar after an evening meal!

Read more about Summerdown’s mission in the mid-1990s to reintroduce this traditional mint crop into Britain as part of a trend towards authentic quality, home grown food.

This organic English Mint chocolate bar is included in our British Icon collection, as well as The Dark Collection, and is delivered straight through the letterbox in our stylish box, the perfect chocolate gift!

Chocolate Pairing Suggestions

Beer Pairing
Mint chocolate is unbelievably diverse; Rauchbier, a German dark beer smoked over beechwood is not a natural pairing but works very well the sultry tones of the 70% cocoa.

Wine Pairing
Alternatively you could pair this chocolate with a fresh, metallic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. The classic mint flavour and rich texture of this dark chocolate bar compliment the elderflower, citron and gooseberry notes in the wine. Only a small piece of chocolate is needed to make a wonderful combination for your taste buds.

Tea Pairing
For a more obvious pairing, create a Moroccan after eight flavour profile by pairing this bar with a mint tea, with lots of sugar and an extended steaming, Summerdown English mint tea would balance and lift the subtle flavours of mint in the chocolate.  

Port Pairing
Alternatively Syrah Port, with its unassuming flavours of allspice, clove and eucalyptus would complement the dark richness of the chocolate and the unassuming eucalyptus flavours will enhance and lift the mint oil aromas.  

Tequilla Pairing
An alternative choose a more fun an vibrant pairing in the way of an aged extra anejo tequila the lively, grassy warmth of the tequila would emphasize the coolness of the mint, whilst the richness of the chocolate would mellow the experience.

• Casa Noble Anejo Tequila
• El Tesoro Paradiso Extra Anejo

Love The Mint Chocolate

I recently online-ordered 2 bars of the mint chocolate. They came in a very stylish packaging, loved the look of that.
Everyone in my family generally loves mint chocolate, but we all thought that this one was exceptionally tasty! Not too sweet at all, somewhat creamy but still refreshing!! Will most definitely buy it again!

Perfect treat

As someone who enjoys a little treat of Chocolate now and again and also someone that loves mint, this sounded perfect. All too often though, mint chocolate is too overwhelming in flavour and you are left feeling like you haven't eaten chocolate at all.
Not so with this bar though. The velvety rich, dark organic chocolate was well balanced and the chocolate taste was present WITH the mint rather than playing second fiddle. Really impressed with this and all the other chocolate I have purchased. If you like mint chocolate, or just like chocolate in general (and who doesn't?!) then I cannot recommend this highly enough.
