Lindt unveil a new limited edition Mocha Coconut Dark Chocolate bar

27 Nov

Buy  Lindt Chocolate Online at Moo-Lolly-Bar AustraliaThose much loved chocolate maestros Lindt & Sprϋngli USA has recently teamed up with those geniuses at The Culinary Institute of America to launch a new, exclusive, limited edition chocolate bar.

The rather delicious sounding Mocha Coconut Dark Chocolate Bar was created during a recent Lindt EXCELLENCE Recipe Challenge which challenged students at the Culinary Institute of America to develop a new dark chocolate bar. Featuring a mouth watering selection of rich coffee, delicate coconut flakes and of course Lindt’s premium EXCELLENCE chocolate the new creation apparently invokes a smile inducing combination of intense and familiar flavors.

The new bar was the brainchild of Meredith Walter of East Northport, New York. A Culinary Institute of America Baking and Pastry Arts student Walter’s competition effort drew on the memory of a special birthday cake she made for her mother and her uncle in which she combined both mocha and coconut.

‘As a chef, I love cooking with robust flavors, and the new Lindt Mocha Coconut dark chocolate bar exemplifies a great flavor combination and delicious sensory experience’ said the celebrity chef and restaurateur Michael Symon, who was one of the contest judges.

‘I’m proud to be a judge in the contest with Lindt and my alma mater, The Culinary Institute of America, and to taste each of the students’ hand-crafted dark chocolate bars’.

Walter’s is understandably believed to be delighted at the win.

Anthony Bourdain & Eric Ripert’s Launch ‘Good & Evil’ Chocolate Bar

15 Nov

The Good & Evil Chocolate Bar

Celebrity chefs Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert have partnered with noted chocolatier Christopher Curtin to produce a new gourmet chocolate bar.

The ‘Good & Evil’ which was officially launched during The New York Chocolate Show has apparently been ‘Inspired by the dynamic friendship of [the] renowned culinary figures’.

Made out of 72% Pure Nacional cacao from Peru, one of the rarest cacao trees on earth, which was initially thought to be extinct for over a century until it was rediscovered growing on small isolated farms within Peru, (the only place in the world where it is found), the chocolate bar features both chocolate (which represent Ripert as the ‘Good’) and cocoa nibs (for Bourdain as the ‘evil’). A high quality product, the chocolate can be bought online from Curtin’s company Éclat Chocolate for a whopping $18 a bar.

But how does it taste?

Well pretty good if the opinion of The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Rick Nichols, who described it as an ‘astonishing good chocolate’, is anything to go by.

And how should you eat it?

‘It is best to let a bite linger on the tongue’ he advises before explaining:

‘If you do, the subtle fruitiness emerges, and perhaps a woodsy hit of forest nuts, but very definitely – and differently from the beans just a year before – a bright, enchanting note of dark cherry……It was lush, almost creamy, without a trace of bitterness, or the tart, brittle waxiness that can make high-cacao bars more a chore than an easy pleasure’.

Next US President to be decided by Chocolate Lovers vote?

1 Nov

Will Barack Obama win the next US Presidential Election on the back of votes from chocolate lovers?

As the US Presiential Election race hots up a French confectioner has come up with a novel way of predicting the winner by offering chocolate lovers the chance to vote with their taste buds.

Luxury chocolate maker ‘Paris Chocolat’ has announced the launch of a new presidential election chocolate box. The box contains a delicious selection of dark chocolate medallions imprinted with the faces of both Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.

The chocolate company’s owner, Eric Monterrat, confirms ‘The box is 100 percent chocolate. The photos are in the likeness of the presidential candidates, made entirely of chocolate’.

Paris Chocolat is also running a poll whereby customers can ‘vote’ for their favorite candidate through the consumption of their preferred candidate.

A similar chocolate box was introduced for the French presidential elections earlier this year and interestingly enough the results of the chocolate poll were a close prediction to the actual election outcome.

At the time of writing the Paris Chocolat poll shows a clear lead to President Obama who leads Romney by some 72 percent. In the real polls, just three weeks out from the US presidential election, support for Obama and Romney is much closer.
