Here’s a wonderful review from the most excellent Redinal T. Bear esq. Are you Reddy? Geddit? Geddit? Oh never mind….
Elizabeth Shaw Pear and Almond
“Mummee bought me a whole bar of chocolate all of my own! I knew I had to write a review for #Jezzercheckschocs or she might ask for a bit. As you can see it is a large bar compared to me, made by Elizabeth Shaw, a name of note in chocolate and is a dark bar with pear and almond. I liked the package but couldn’t wait to get inside!
There was some lovely silver foil inside the outer wrapper ( the little cat uses it for a toy now) to keep the chocolate fresh. I ripped it open and was hit between my glass eyes with an overwhelming aroma of dark and bitter cocoa. YUMMY.
I broke off a square. It was smooth and dark and made a good ‘snap’. I bit in and was at once amazed as the delicate flavour of pears swarmed around the back of my mouth. Sooo sweet yet just a hint and the lovely darkness of the chocolate then came through. The taste of almond was not at all strong and for most squares the crunch was missing too. A little saddening.
