Cocoa Hernando Discovers Himalaya - Milk Chocolate with Pink Diamond Salt
I was recently sent this bar of Cocoa Hernando Discovers Himalaya chocolate, described as "Milk chocolate with Pink Diamond Salt" and was both a little excited and nervous to try it. I've tried plenty of salted caramel chocolate bars in my time but not many that contain salt in the actual chocolate, so I wasn't quite sure how it would work in practice.
To my surprise it actually worked rather well! The chocolate tasted extremely rich and had a strong woody cocoa flavour...then the salt hits you! It tastes subtle and actually rather moreish. You can tell this is pink himalayan salt rather than any old salt, it has the subtle flavour down to a tee. I shared this with a friend who said "you can definitely taste the pink". I'm not sure how one can actually taste colours, but I'll go with it!
Overall, a tasty and good quality chocolate bar that is surprisingly moreish - I would recommend Cocoa Hernando to those who like high quality chocolate with a unique edge. Their signature India bar sounds particularly nice!
RATING: 9 out of 10.
