Delicata knows how to catch your attention with fresh, minimalistic yet luscious packaging of this dark chocolate. I’m very curious about the combination of balsamic vinegar & strawberry!
After being greeted by a sugary scent you can pick up a citrus-like fragrance. One of my favourite features of this chocolate are the bits of chewy strawberry.
The 58% of cacao leaves enough room for the sweetness to come through, although I wouldn’t mind a higher cacao percentage for this tablet, the fruit would balance it out.
When assessing the aroma it’s easy to discern a fruity one and a red-fruit sub aroma although I wonder if the presence of 3% strawberry is entirely responsible for this: the ingredient list shows a presence of added citrus fibre and apple.
One thing I’m missing while tasting is a little touch of balsamico vinegar. Vinegar can be overpowering, so I understand that too much would be off-putting, however the 0,4 % presence of balsamico doesn’t make a difference.
This tablet is fun, sweet but still layered and interesting: I’ve eaten 3 tablets so far so yes it keeps me coming back for more!
You can find this brand at Delhaize (Belgium) and Albert Heijn (The Netherlands and BE) . AH offers Delicata tablets in even more flavours such as the promising blueberry/violet (can’t wait to get my hands on one of those)
