Unbelievably Good Chocolate!

I had lots of vegan treats given to me last Christmas!  Chocolate flavoured with ginger & lime, earl grey tea chocolate, marron glacé, blackcurrant and raspberry jellies – I was spoilt rotten!  My brother and his wife sent some Mexican-style chocolate made at the Taza Chocolate Factory in Somerville, Massachusetts. It was sensational! Possibly the best chocolate I have ever had!

I did some research… After a trip to Oaxaca (pronounced ‘wa-ha-ka’) in Mexico, Alex Whitmore returned home and set up his own company making stone-ground chocolate in the style of centuries-old Mexican chocolate traditions. He uses authentic Oaxacan stone mills called molinos to grind the cacao. The resulting chocolate has a distinctively gritty texture. Organic and fair-trade, you just can’t beat this! You can buy it here and see for yourself!
