Beaulieu Pistachio Chocolate

Pistachio is my all time favourite nut. Salt it, roast it, plain out the shell, if there are pistachios about I am going to eat them. So when I visited Beaulieu Chocolate Studio and spied their Beaulieu Pistachio Chocolate bar it was certain that this was coming home with me.  Nestled in the New Forest they create contemporary and local speciality chocolates which are all hand-made using fresh and where possible local ingredients.
