If there is one thing Demarquette know, it is the importance of presentation. Their elegant black boxes come tied with a ribbon and are etched with gold lettering. It is not just the box that oozes premium quality, but each of Demarquette’s Surf & Turf hen-size eggs are hand painted to look like ocean waves. This beautiful blue connotes the sea salt used to enhance the thick gooey caramel filling inside.
Although subtle, there is a faint whiff of sea air while the cream from the caramel provides a milk aroma coming from inside the very specific 71.1% dark chocolate shell. The Dark chocolate is very rich and earthy with mellow roasted notes. This is contrasted with the oh so buttery vanilla and salted caramel, which balances the flavours perfectly.
Being hen-sized and completely filled to the brim in undiluted caramel, each portion is very rich and filling. You only need one to send you to heaven, while too might send you clawing for water.
At £24.50 for a box of six, Demarquette’s Surf & Turf is expensive, but if you are looking for a luxury gift for a friend, loved one, or indeed yourself, you with what you recieve.
