Heilemann Confiserie Praline-Tafel Himbeer Balsamico [Raspberry and Balsamic Vinegar Chocolate] (Germany)

Another treat from abroad, and sadly this isn’t a bar I have seen in the UK. I’ve tried quite a few strange combinations, from salt and chocolate through to pepper and chocolate. It seems only fitting then that I continue with condiments and try vinegar! (Not malt vinegar though; this chocolate has the sweeter Balsamic vinegar as a filling.)

The chocolate itself is dark and bitter, the raspberry filling is sweet and the balsamic vinegar adds sharpness. As a combination it is definitely a success, although is a chocolate bar that is best enjoyed in small chunks as the flavours are quite strong. Worth keeping an eye out for.
