Chocolate lovers rejoice because this is the place for you. Those eagle eyed readers will remember me talking about Rococo Chocolates as part of my Covent Garden Hidden Gems post (here). Upon discovering this store of eccentric wonder I could not have walked away empty handed, and one of my purchases included this Roald Dahl James’ Scrumptious Peach bar
From freshly handmade truffles, to chocolate bars, thins and animal shaped creations, there’s something for everyone. They’ve also teamed up with Roald Dahl to create a fantabulous phizzwhizzing range destined to take you back to your childhood! From Fantastic Mr Fox, Matilda, Bruce Bogtrotter, The BFG and James and the Giant Peach, each bar is inspired by the book in question.
There is no denying that they are on the pricer side of what you would normally pay and come in at £5.95. However bear in mind they are handcrafted in London, they use only the finest of ingredients, and they pride themselves in ethical and sustainable practice.
James’ Scrumptious Peach combines Rococo white chocolate with, yes you guessed it, peaches. The packaging is minimal and the artwork is great. The bar itself is thick and in long strips. I cannot express to you how AMAZING this one smelt. The white chocolate was sweet but divinely silky and smooth. The quality as expected is second to none, and would convert any non white chocolate lover into one. It does contain freeze dried peach and apricot which works wonders. The peaches tasted as fresh as you get which was surprising for a bar of chocolate.
Rococo Chocolates Roald Dahl James’ Scrumptious Peach is one of the nicest white chocolate bars I have ever had. The flavour blew me away, it’s so simple but utterly scrumptious (as the name suggests). It tasted fresh and fruity, indulgent and transporting an frankly for a treat I would buy this again and again.
