Sea Salt 70% Dark Chocolate Bar

Organic Dark Chocolate Bar

£3.85
  • Description
  • Hand-harvested crunchy Sea Salt flakes bring out all the flavours of our organic, fair-trade 70% cacao dark chocolate from Nacional in Ecuador. Make your taste buds dance!

    We believe good sea salt doesn’t need to come all the way from the Himalayas, so we save thousands of unnecessary food miles & get ours from Essex! Maldon Sea Salt, established over 130 years ago, has an unrivalled reputation for taste & quality, and if it's good enough for top chefs worldwide then it's good enough for us.

    According to legend, it was first manufactured by accident over 2,000 years ago by Roman Commanders when taking a hot seawater bath.

    This organic Sea Salt 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.

      

  • Great Taste 2-Star Award
  • "An uncompromisingly bitter chocolate that is well tempered and shiny with a really soft salty flavour that speaks of salt flakes rather than crystals."

    "A good glossy bar with a nice snap. The salt starts to come through as the chocolate melts - there is not a big burst of fruit but more a deep rich chocolate with very little astringency. A delicious little burst of salt."

  • Ingredients
  • 80g Organic fair-trade dark chocolate (cocoa mass, cocoa butter), organic fair-trade cane sugar, organic vanilla extract, emulsifier: sunflower lecithin 0.1%. Min. Cocoa solids 70%, Maldon Sea Salt

     

  • Chocolate Pairing Suggestions
  • Wine Pairing
    Emulate and mimic the flavours of this bar when deciding on an appropriate pairing, look for a medium bodied red wine, ideally with notes of cherry, raspberry and plum, soft tannins and elusive smokiness. We recommend a South African pinot noir, hits of spice with gentle Pinotage qualities the salt in the chocolate will enhance the fruit flavours and blend accordingly with the smokiness.

    • River's end stellar organic pinot noir (Fairtrade)
    • Earthbound Organic Fairtrade Pinot Noir 

    Tea Pairing
    Alternatively, Lapsang Souchong tea dried over a smoking pine fire, imparts a sweet, clean smoky flavour and creates a unique exquisite pairing for our chocolate, the richness of both mingle and merge and create a sumptuous experience. For a more mature flavour pairing, we recommend the warm and peaty aromas of an Islay single malt.

    • Lapsang Souchong Tea Smoky, peaty with lingering flavours 

    Whisky Pairing
    For a serious flavour pairing try Laphroaig single malt, medicinal in flavour with a rich amber colour, warm, mature and intense.  

    • Laphroaig
    • Lagavulin
    • Ardbeg
    • Bowmore

    Love cocoa dark chocolate with Maldon sea salt

    Delicious, perhaps a smidgen less salt? Packaging could be improved? Foil was rather scrunched up, and the box didn't appeal/stand out. Still, looking forward to seeing more proper UK, proper chocolate!

    Dark, rich creamy and utterly yummy

    Omg love love love this... such a depth of flavour. Even my husband and children devoured this and they are not usually fans of dark chocolate. Next time I buy some I'm hiding it from them!

    Sea salt bar the best but disappointed in the gift card

    The sea salt bar was to die for but have to say I was disappointed at the gift note...it was written messily on a scrap of paper and didn't include all the words...and was separate to the pop up card which I loved but I thought the card itself would have the writing.

    Great concept but could be smoother

    Finally someone has combined the two best ingredients in the world! I was super happy about this...and initially I loved it...u could taste the avocado...but then I found I couldn't continue eating them. Perhaps because they are quite filling (as avocados are)...but I think it's perhaps because it tastes quite powdery (as it's avo powder used)...I feel the recipe needs to be tweaked in order to make it smoother on the palate, perhaps with almond or coconut milk...but well done for finally thinking of the combo!

    5/5
