In my brief blog post yesterday, I mentioned that I will be hosting a giveaway for my readers! This is courtesy of Brookline Public Relations and Cococo Chocolatiers! (Click and scroll below to see contest rules right away.)
Cococo Chocolatiers, owners of Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut®, are proudly Canadian and handcrafts fine chocolates in Calgary, Alberta since 2012. You can visit them online to check out their divine creations!
I had the privilege of trying out their signature Sea Salt Caramel collection in four combinations! I was very excited because this wasn’t just regular chocolate, but the unique flavours included Thai Ginger Sea Salt in dark chocolate, Hawaiian Sea Salt over raspberry caramel Cococo, and more!
I tried this collection: 16 Milk and Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels. I personally love caramel chocolates but I was very curious about this one because there were four combinations that were very unique and flavoured with sea salt.
- Sea Salt Caramel in Milk Chocolate
- Thai Ginger Sea Salt Chocolate Caramel in Dark Chocolate
- Hawaiian Sea Salt Raspberry Caramel in Milk Chocolate
- Sea Salt Caramel in Dark Chocolate
I tried all four and I absolutely loved the original Sea Salt Caramel in Milk Chocolate. It was so smooth and the caramel was so sweet and delicious. The light sea salt on the top of the chocolate also made for a very interesting salty sweet sensation. It was so good!!
The Thai Ginger Sea Salt Chocolate Caramel in Dark Chocolate wasn’t very strong in Thai ginger but I really liked the dark chocolate!
Mmm, this was actually my favorite one; the Hawaiian Sea Salt Raspberry Caramel in Milk Chocolate. There was something about the sweet raspberry puree in the centre that made this one stand out. It was so delicious!
The Sea Salt Caramel in Dark Chocolate was also very delicious since it was dark chocolate (I love dark chocolate!). Again, the sea salt was there which provided the very unique sensation of salty salt flavours in my mouth. It was so good! I couldn’t get enough of it.
I liked how each caramel chocolate was the perfect size to pop into my mouth for a small snack. Having one of each flavour for a snack is an amazing indulgence! You have to try it for yourself! 🙂
I also got to try their spiced fusion chocolate bars with flavours (Oregano Fusion in dark chocolate and Rosemary Fusion in milk chocolate hand-finished with habanero sea salt). You don’t have to just eat this chocolate by itself; you can actually add this unique chocolate to any cheese and charcuterie board to surprise and delight your friends and family!
I tried the Oregano Fusion in dark chocolate First. Again, it was hand finished with sea salt (Habanero) so it again had that uniquely salty sweet taste. It was very unique and less intense than the caramel chocolates. However, it was very good and I could see myself eating more than one block of this in one sitting.
The Rosemary Fusion in milk chocolate hand-finished with habanero sea salt tasted a little spicy as an aftertaste. It also had the unique salty sweet taste and tasted light as well so you could eat more than one block in one is sitting without feeling full. It was really good! ^_^
All in all, I am very grateful that I got to try out these unique spiced chocolates and sea salt caramel chocolates. They’re so delicious and I wish more people can know about them. It’s great that it’s a Canadian company and that they are doing so well already and available exclusively through a network of 31 retail stores across Canada and the United States and all from within their chocolate factory in Calgary, Alberta here in Canada!
