Cocoa Deli – Chocolate Raspberries (Waitrose)
This is packaged in a very sweet box sealed with a bow from a piece of ribbon, and looks very luxurious. The packet contains raspberries coated in white chocolate, which does sound rather yummy. Curiously the ingredients list also included beetroot - madness, this must just be a natural food colouring. (The white chocolate is indeed speckled with pink / red dots).
The raspberries are freeze dried, which adds a curiosity to this item – it makes the chocolates crunchy! This is not a bad thing; it was just slightly unexpected when I first bit in. The sweetness of the white chocolate balances the sharper raspberry flavour and makes a lovely treat or ideal stocking filler.
