I’m not normally much of a white chocolate fan – I find it sickly and cloying, but I was sent samples of a range of organic chocolate called Seed & Bean recently and it’s changed my perception.
Their take on the pale treat contains organic lemon oil which cuts through the creamy sweetness, and is also speckled with poppy seeds which gives it a very pleasant amount of texture and slight crunch.
It’s obviously not gone unnoticed, as it’s got a great taste gold award on the packet. It’s also billed as being sustainable and ethical which gives you a warm glow as you munch your way a bit too swiftly through the 85g bar…
I’ve sloped off to the website to see where I can get more of this range from and this is what i’ve found out about them:
Made by: The Organic Seed & Bean Company was founded in 2005 by Derbyshire lad Stephen Rudkin with the idea to create an unusual range of confectionery and snacks, always Organic and Fairtrade when possible. He’s done stints at Green & Black’s, Whole Earth Foods and Clearspring before setting up his own venture.
Other interesting flavours: lemon & cardamom, tangerine, cornish sea salt, chilli & lime, lavender…
Where can I buy them? They’re not super easy to get hold of… look out for them at specialist shops, food markets or online… here’s their stockist page for more info
How much? 85g bars start at £2.29
Thanks for my samples. I have not been paid to write this review, I just wanted to tell you what I thought about the product as i’d not seen it before.
