It’s not every day I get to open packages of such fortitude, but I must say that today I was a very lucky Lady indeed.  What girl can resist chocolate?  What goes best with Chocolate (besides wine, ice cream and cake)? Chilli. South Devon Chilli Farm are well known for their chocolate products, and if you are a chocolate fiend, especially with a taste for the more luxurious, keep your eyes here.

sdcf choc orangeIn a lively orange baggy, emblazoned with the SDCF label, 100 grams of non conforming shaped chunks of rich, dark chocolate stares up at me, begging for freedom!  Oh okay, you twisted my arm…

Ingredients:

Chocolate 98% (of which cocoa solids 60% minimum, Sugar, Emulsifier: Soya Lecithin, Flavouring: Natural Vanilla), Dried Chilli: 1%, Orange oil 1%, (may contain traces of milk and nuts).

Pack kindly supplied by South Devon Chilli Farm

The 1% of orange oil is all you need for this to beat any Terry’s chocolate orange hands down, none of this fake flavour lark. The scent is divine, fresh, crisp orangy goodness escapes the bag as I break off a reasonably sized portion. Melt in your mouth, creamy quality dark chocolate never ceases to please any chocoholic’s tastebuds.

But wait, there’s more! The orange oil is nicely played together with the dried chilli, keeping the flavour around for much longer. It warms the throat gradually and avoids any bitter aftertaste, the chilli within this chocolate is by no means invisible, whilst still being a mild product.

If you want to taste a real chilli chocolate product, and you love your chocolate and orange combinations, this is perfect for you!

Priced at £3.64 for 100 grams on their website, its a reasonable price for a stellar product

Good place, we live near(ish) to S.D. C. F. Always love visiting the farm/shop. Also in the area of Devon is Willies Hardcourt Couzes 100% cacao. Not as refined as Amedei /Vlrohna, if it was you would not appreciate how good this product is. Best beans, superb ingredient. I hope that makes sense.
