If there is one thing I have learnt from writing about Cartmel products, it is that they make an amazing Sticky Toffee Pudding. It is an indulgent rich dessert, and every bit as naughty as you would hope.
So, when I spotted they had gone in to the chocolate market, I couldn’t resist picking up a box. All the chocolates in the box are the same, and are based on the aforementioned pudding. They are 12 chocolates each consisting of a thick milk chocolate dome filled with a sticky toffee sauce. The chocolate is pleasant, it is sweet and creamy and has nice cocoa tones, but it isn’t the star of the show. It’s not a bad chocolate, but it does lack a little pizzazz. The contents on the other hand are fabulous. The thick liquid within is buttery and salty and has the most amazing rich toffee flavour. It is outstanding, sweet and tasty, and when you have had one, you immediately want another. There is nothing quite like placing one in the mouth, bursting it with the teeth and allowing the sugary substance to fill the palette. Absolutely amazing, if they could just up the quality of the milk chocolate coating they really would take some beating. Even as it is, it would wow those with a sweet tooth and is well worth seeking out!
