Prestat Ruby Chocolate Thins
Following on from my review of the Prestat Ruby Chocolate Bar, today's review is for their Ruby Chocolate Thins. I was super excited to try these, perhaps even moreso than the bar because who doesn't love nibbly pieces of chocolate - they looked like buttons, albeit very large buttons! They're made with the same ingredients as the bar version, a mixture of cocoa butter, milk powder and ruby cocoa. The cocoa solids are lower in the ingredients list that regular chocolate, making this more of a creamy chocolate akin to white chocolate, but with a fruity, slightly tart edge.
How pretty do they look? I mean I'm not usually one for pink coloured things but these are rather special indeed!
The discs or "thins" were nice and big, perfect for nibbling on and felt like a real treat indeed. The taste is fruity, creamy and slightly sharp, like that of a good quality cocoa but toned down with a creamy edge from the milk powder. They're highly moreish, and I certainly ate more than a few in one sitting! They're also handy for melting in this form - I used some to top cookies with and they looked and tasted wonderful. I can imagine many great creations will be made with this chocolate, and I do look forward to seeing what other products come out in the future.
Bravo Prestat, these are delightful!
