The Chilli Pepper Company’s Mexican Chilli Chocolate Almonds

When I see coated Almonds, it always reminds me of an old joke:-

The care home bus driver is driving a bus full of pensioners down a motorway on their annual day out, when a little old lady taps him on his shoulder….

She offers him a handful of almonds, which he gratefully munches up.

15 minutes later she taps him on his shoulder again and hands him another handful of almonds. She repeats this gesture about 8 times.

After the 9th time he asks the lady why they do not eat the almonds themselves.

She replied that it is not possible because of their old teeth. They can not chew them.

“Why do you buy them then?” he asks, puzzled. Where upon the lady answers, “We just love to lick the chocolate around them”.

Well these Mexican Chilli Chocolate Almonds would stop any non chilli-head sucking off the coating, but sadly they don’t last long in our house.

The coating is a work of art, it is milk chocolate coloured, but with large flecks of chilli appearing near the surface, they are beautiful to behold, like little hard chocolate eggs..

The coating is crisp and snaps as you bite into it, then there is a moment or two before the chilli comes to life and then crunch of the Almond at the center.

Ingredients: Sugar, Almonds (21%), Coca butter, Whole Milk Powder, Cocoa Mass, Lactose, Whey Powder, Chilli Flakes (1%), Emulsifier (Soya Lecitichin), Glazing Agents (Gum Arabic).

I had to eat a few before the heat started to build (that is my excuse), but the warmth from these little beasties is pretty good, the more the chilli rehydrates in your month the hotter it gets.

Would I recommend them, yes whole heartily, but with one recommendation, save some for me, these will be on my Christmas, Birthday and any other list I can think of.
