It has been mission find The Grown Up Chocolate Company bars near me, and in particular the Salted Peanut Caramel one. If you are a regular reader you may recall I reviewed their Lovely Fruity Nutty Crunchy bar, fear not if you haven’t you can read it here.
Whilst out and about I spied an array of The Grown Up Chocolate Company in Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shop, and jumped for joy that they had the Superb Salted Peanut Caramel. At £2.99 it was a huge £1 mark up on the RRP which I was not impressed about, however given finding this was like searching for the end of the rainbow, I bought it anyway. (FYI I have since discovered Ocado also stocks a selection.)
Could this sound any more scrumptious? After one simple bite I had entered peanutty caramel chocolatey heaven! Smooth gooey caramel and milk chocolate was joined by the crunch of the praline and peanuts. Whoever decided to include whole peanuts is a genius! Now my bug bear of salted caramel is when it’s all caramel and no salt. Well I can tell you this was perfection. The balance of rich velvety caramel with just enough salt makes this the perfect salted caramel. The Grown Up Chocolate Company have taken my two loves, peanut and salted caramel, and made them a super couple. All I can say is Superb Salted Peanut Caramel where have you been all my life!
If you are going to try one of The Grown Up Chocolate Company bars this is the kiddie to try.
