Rococo gets a BAD review! Only the second time this has happened?

Rococo Chocolates

Rococo Chocolates was founded in 1983 by Chantal Coady. They have a variety of non-dairy chocolates; I tried their Caramelised Almond Organic dark chocolate and their two new Grenada chocolate bars. Even though I’m not really a fan of dark chocolate, I still decided to give it a try.

I’m going to be honest and say that I’m not a fan. I found the dark chocolate too overwhelming and it tasted very bitter. I’d only recommend you try it if you really love dark chocolate, because it’s got quite a strong taste to it.

Just to show we don’t just reprint good reviews, although it sometimes feels like it when we only see one glowing review after another, it’s important that all reviews are honest. In this case it looks like a simple preference for milkier blends, so please don’t shoot this messenger 🙂

    How can this person give an honest and unbiased review if she’s not a fan of dark chocolate. Surely the reviewer should be someone who knows and appreciates the properties of dark chocolote in order to give a balanced assessment.
    I for one love Grenadian chocolate and bought bars and bars of it when I visited Grenada.
    Can’t wait to come to Rococo!

    Thanks for your kind words of support Sarra 🙂

    As I said, please don’t shoot the messenger – at least Neandra admitted to a prior track record of dark chocolate incompatibility 🙂

    To be fair, dark chocolate can sometimes taste quite bitter, but it’s still a bit disappointing to see even the good stuff can still fail on some palates 🙁
