Today I am taking a walk into the Black Forest which, although in Germany, has been claimed by Montezuma and given a patriotic Union Jack on the front cover. Although the name isn’t particularly one of British origin, the chocolate is of proud British make. The packaging The great British Gateau comes in is striking, attractive, and has some texture; it is also wrapped in foil to preserve freshness.

Once opened, the dark chocolate gives off an aroma of wild berries and red wine; it has  mellow, non-sweet tones, with a few piquant pieces of tart cherry. The cherries are soft and juicy, so does not interrupt the slow melt. As it melts slowly and lacks sweetness, you are not left craving more.
