Cinnamon chocolate wafers from Prestat
There is too little cinnamon used in cooking and even less in chocolate so it was with a particular amount of delight that I opened the box of Prestat organic chocolate cinnamon wafers.
Prestat has the most amazing packaging and when you consider the box arrived without any damage, it is a testament to their thoughtful design. The burnt orange colour offset with the gold makes this a beautiful box.
Inside is a row of chocolate wafers all lovely and ready to be tasted which I did most eagerly.
One thing I’d like to point out here is the ingredients list of this organic milk chocolate and cinnamon wafer I have in my mouth as I write this (I couldn’t stop eating them): organic cane sugar, organic cocoa butter, organic full cream milk powder, organic cocoa mass, organic cinnamon, emulsifier, soya lecithin, natural vanilla.
It is so wonderful to get such a lovely organic chocolate. The flavour of the milk powder does overwhelm the blended taste somewhat which disappointed me a bit. The sweetness of the sugar overbalances the blend and leaves a sweet aftertaste. I’m not sure if it was to counterbalance the cinnamon or chocolate but it was a bit too much.
I love cinnamon and for that reason I’ve been enjoying this chocolate but I have to admit that I have some reservations. I’ve given this a “great” rating but not “top notch” as I feel the after taste and slightly strange flavour the chocolate is a bit of a drawback.
That is a rather wonderful looking box, I’m not the biggest cinanamon fan, (mainly due to playing the very painful student game of seeing if you can swallow a teaspoon full of ground cinammon – you can’t!)
