English Mint Dark Chocolate Bar

Organic Dark Chocolate Bar

£4.00
  • Description
  • Summerdown single estate English mint oil subtly blended with our organic, fair-trade 70% cacao dark chocolate from Nacional in Ecuador. Elegance personified.

    The inclusion of pure Black Mitcham mint brings a palate cleansing, intense taste to the chocolate unlike some bars which use cheap imported peppermint oil blends from China and India. We love to eat this bar after an evening meal!

    Read more about Summerdown’s mission in the mid-1990s to reintroduce this traditional mint crop into Britain as part of a trend towards authentic quality, home grown food.

    This organic English Mint chocolate bar is included in our British Icon collection, as well as The Dark Collection, and is delivered straight through the letterbox in our stylish box, the perfect chocolate gift!

     

  • Ingredients
  • 80g English Mint: Organic fair-trade dark chocolate (cocoa mass, cocoa butter), organic fair-trade cane sugar, organic vanilla extract, emulsifier: sunflower lecithin 0.1%. Min. Cocoa solids 70%, Pure Mitcham Mint oil.

     

  • Chocolate Pairing Suggestions
  • Beer Pairing
    Mint chocolate is unbelievably diverse; Rauchbier, a German dark beer smoked over beechwood is not a natural pairing but works very well the sultry tones of the 70% cocoa.

    Wine Pairing
    Alternatively you could pair this chocolate with a fresh, metallic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. The classic mint flavour and rich texture of this dark chocolate bar compliment the elderflower, citron and gooseberry notes in the wine. Only a small piece of chocolate is needed to make a wonderful combination for your taste buds.

    Tea Pairing
    For a more obvious pairing, create a Moroccan after eight flavour profile by pairing this bar with a mint tea, with lots of sugar and an extended steaming, Summerdown English mint tea would balance and lift the subtle flavours of mint in the chocolate.  

    Port Pairing
    Alternatively Syrah Port, with its unassuming flavours of allspice, clove and eucalyptus would complement the dark richness of the chocolate and the unassuming eucalyptus flavours will enhance and lift the mint oil aromas.  

    Tequilla Pairing
    An alternative choose a more fun an vibrant pairing in the way of an aged extra anejo tequila the lively, grassy warmth of the tequila would emphasize the coolness of the mint, whilst the richness of the chocolate would mellow the experience.

    • Casa Noble Anejo Tequila
    • El Tesoro Paradiso Extra Anejo

    Thoroughly enjoyed the bar.. Very pleasant taste and quite moreish.
    The quality of this hand made chocolate stands out from the normal mass produced bars of a similar nature. Would have no hesitation in ordering this product again.

    Beautiful chocolate

    It was a beautiful chocolate, from receiving it in the post with a hand written late, to the packaging to the taste. The dark chocolate had a wonderful less-sweet flavour and had a lovely hint of mint. It really tasted like quality chocolate.
    I give it 4 stars only due to personal taste, I like my minty chocolates to be really rather strong - otherwise I couldn۪t fault it

    Disappointed with the delivery

    I bought the chocolate bars as a gift as I had bought some at an earlier time, although I like the idea of it. It was disappointing for my friend to not have received the next day. If I was guaranteed next day delivery I would order again.

    Thanks for your feedback Yvonne, is really useful. We try and keep our product as affordable as possible offering 1st Class Royal Mail for free (over £15). Since we emailed we have now added a next day guaranteed delivery option and charge cost price for this service.
    Subscription v Retail

    James something to be aware of: I can buy three bars for £12 in my local wine shop ( Therapy of Wine )
    Same thing only costs me 1p less through my subscription.....

    Thanks for your feedback Robert. Unfortunately at the moment we have to charge postage on the subscriptions under 15 pounds. We will try and create more subscription options which will avoid this postage charge.
    80th Birthday Gift for a Quaker

    The gift was very well received and the whole family enjoyed the experience of 'cadbury' chocolate. Beautifully packaged and delivered with no fuss.

    Thanks for lovely review Lea, glad the chocolate bars were well received gift :)
    Sea salt 70% Dark Chocolate Bar

    Found it to be a crisp & tastey bar. Tends to bring out the cocoa. Never tried this taste before but would purchase again.

    Glad you liked this John. The Sea Salt is our favourite bar and is up for an award :)
    Chocolate Heaven

    The chocolate is absolutely amazing. I think when you read the ingredients list and learn about the refined sugar-free element you possibly prepare your mind for an inferior but healthier alternative. This blew my expectations out the water. This is hands down most of the most elite, superior and exquisite chocolates I have ever tasted. So pure, so creamy and the flavours options are insane. I also sampled to 70% Ecuadorian which was unbelievably creamy and like nothing I have ever tasted. I will definitely be back for more. Please, Please, Please enter this for some of the industry awards. This should definitely be celebrated!

    Thanks very much for the review Ryan, glad you liked the chocolate!
