One of the joy of writing about food is when you come across a product you want to share with the world. Rococo Cat and Dog Gift Box is definitely a perfect example. Chantal Coady’s company has been going for nearly 30 years, a couple of years back Rococo and Chantal were awarded a special prize by the Academy of Chocolate Awards for “changing the way people think about chocolate”. It is a fair-trade company which means that the cocoa beans are not harvested by children which are in schooling age, meaning less kids are kidnapped and sold as farm workers.
I still got to come across somebody who does not like Ganaches. Ganache is normally 2 parts chocolate, one part cream, it is used as a glaze or a truffle base.
This box is for the traditional palates with its Sour Cherry Ganaches, Lemon Praline but also for the chocolate freaks with Jasmine Green Tea -which I must say was rather too subtle for me but I still enjoyed it- and Popping Champagne, this one is great it pips and pops as it melts in your mouth.
I’ll mark this box a drooling 9 out of 10. If you wonder why there are cats and dogs on the packaging it is inspired by a classic 19th century French chocolate mould catalogue.
