I'm a big fan of Whittard's hot chocolate range, and white chocolate too, so when I saw this unusual-sounding rhubarb variety in my local Whittard of Chelsea store, my curiosity got the better of me. They also had a Strawberry white chocolate flavour as well as Lemon Meringue, which I didn't go for as this sounded like the weirdest of the lot and I just had to know - how does rhubarb and white chocolate taste together?!
Turns out the combination works very well! The sour tanginess of the rhubarb was subtle and somehow went really well with the creaminess of the white chocolate, although it was very sweet. It was very delicious though, and had a lovely smooth, comforting taste. As you can see in the pic above I added some marshmallows on top of the hot chocolate, which went with it perfectly!
Overall, a successful and unique hot chocolate flavour that actually works. This variety has won a "Great Taste Gold 2011" award, which apparently is quite a big deal! You can find these in Whittard of Chelsea stores or on their website here, they do a lovely variety of flavours:
