What a relief we all felt yesterday. A good product from my neighborhood chocolatier. Encouraged by Cacao’s work with the dark chocolate covered dried apricots, I moved along to their dark chocolate orange peel.The pieces have a berry aroma, with no hint of citrus.
Interestingly, there was no berry flavor in the chocolate; instead, there were typical coffee and caramel flavors complemented by a slow, smooth melt. The orange peel was just a bit tart, just a bit sweet, and had a perfect texture that was neither hard nor gooey, allowing it to blend seamlessly with the chocolate. These pieces were probably the best item I found at Cacao, and are some of the best chocolate covered orange peel I’ve tasted.
And available just down the street. Score.
Do you like candied citrus peels? Which is your favorite?
