this girl who loves the taste, or this one who's found a new way to sprinkle pepper on her food, and perhaps the 2,100 people in the Google+ Pepper Lovers Community. So there must be people who would love to have black pepper in their chocolate, right?
I'm guessing that was what the chocolate flavour creators at Akesson's Organic, Ltd. were thinking when they launched the Madagfacsar 75% Trinitario Cocoa & Black Pepper chocolate bar.
As always with Akesson's chocolate, the quality of the chocolate is superb; a shiny, gorgeous chocolate bar with a classy square shape, and the texture is smooth and buttery, with a relatively high cocoa butter content. The ingredients are kept to a minimum, containing just organic cocoa beans, organic cane sugar, organic cocoa butter, organic black pepper and GMO-free soya lecithin.
As for the taste...well, Akesson's Madagascar-origin chocolate normally has a fruity taste, however, the black pepper flavour is all I can taste. And it lingers in the mouth long after the chocolate has melted away. So like I said, a black pepper lover will adore this chocolate bar, since the pepper flavour is so pronounced. But for me? I'd rather taste the chocolate.
If you are a pepper (and chocolate) lover, and interested in tasting this chocolate, you can learn more about it from the brand's website at: www.akessons-organic.com. My chocolate bar was purchased at JoJo Coco in Ottawa (http://www.jojococo.ca/).
