So far we have explored Doisy & Dam’s milk and white chocolate, neither of which lived up to expectations. Their 74% dark chocolate bars, however, might just be a game changer. The packaging fits the ingredients, as it replicates the colour of maple syrup and the orange-brownish colour you get when toasting food.

   A sweet syrupy smell hits your nostrils the moment you open the wrapper. There are also some salty notes, and most appealing of all, the scent of very fresh chocolate. This chocolate has earthy, slightly bitter notes, but when combined with the salt, it brings sweetness in the form of a rich salted caramel. This richness means that you are left feeling a lot more satisfied a lot quicker that if it were more sugar-laden.  The puffed rice also provides a satisfying soft chewy texture.
    Doisy & Dam’s dark chocolate bar is a marked improvement on their previous outings, and one well worthy putting in your shopping basket.
