Dangerously delicious. The nuts have a delightful sweet creaminess. The flavouring is so clever – the slight bitter scentedness works so well with the sweet nut. There is no residual powderiness from the cocoa. Some of us would have liked a touch more of the promised coffee, others felt the level to be perfect. Elegance is the word that came to mind from more than one judge – a delightful, delicate balance and a clean finish. We really had to stop ourselves finishing off the bowlful.
