Chocolate with chilli
My wife bought me a load of fancy chocolate bars for Xmas, just opened this Montezuma one today and I can’t say I’m impressed.
Tastes like chocolate at first, then the chilli gets slowly hotter so you can’t taste the chocolate anymore.
Bit like red wine with a curry (ie. wrong).
Anyone actually like it?Posted 9 years agoMunqe-chickMember
It seems to be the big thing! Have you seen Walkers have just released some crisps which are chocolate and chilli!! Wierd! THey also have onion bhaji flavour and “the great breakfast” flavour ….. odd.
Anyway back to original point… not tried chocolate and chilli!Posted 9 years agojohnnersMember
I like it, though you’d have to have a korma palate before you could call the Montezuma stuff at all hot. Their white chocolate (I know that’s an oxymoron) with 3 peppers is surprisingly good.
If you want a real travesty, try chocolate with thyme and toasted flax seeds. That was quite horrible – it was a gift.Posted 9 years agomolgripsSubscriber
The latest wannabe Heston Blumenthal craze, I reckon. If I’m being particularly cynical 🙂 However, even Uncle Ben’s chili from a jar has cocoa powder in it (so much for real actual proper proper actual honest to goodness REAL actual true genuine MEXICAN chili :roll:)…Posted 9 years agoandrewMember
We love chillies and we love chocolate.
Chocolate with chilli – can either ruin good chocolate or distract from iffy chocolate.
Chilli with chocolate – No. A good meal ruined. I used to have a *superb* Mexican cook book from the 60s (ie. a cook book actually from Mexico) and no mention of choccy chilli. fast forward a generation and a history reclaimed and pukey heritage meals are everywhere.
but hey, never mind, each to their own 🙂Posted 9 years ago
