Chocolate talk: Montezuma’s Spice It Up bar

29 May

I love the heat and kick ginger brings to dishes. One of my favourite drinks is teh halia (ginger tea), a super spicy brew I make at home with lots of sliced ginger and a knotted pandan leaf thrown in, and drunk with a dollop of honey.

When it comes to baking, one of the best chocolate and ginger combinations I’ve had was Pierre Herme’s apricot and ginger chocolate loaf cake from Chocolate Desserts. It’s a fantastic combination, with the honey of apricots contrasting nicely with spicy stem ginger, giving the dark chocolate loaf a pleasant spicy kick.

So when it came to Montezuma’s Spice It Up bar with Dragon Ginger pieces, I was expecting a similar taste sensation. Strong, punchy flavours of dark chocolate and fiery ginger. Unfortunately, while the 71% cocoa bar itself is a wonderful flavour, I barely could taste any ginger. It’ll need much more ginger pieces to spice up my life. Boo. Such a shame.
