@GrimReaperFoods White chilli chocolate review

Grim Reaper's Purgatory White Chilli Chocolate#Purgatory I must start this review by explaining that I am not a great chocolate fan. Its just doesn't excite me and much to the confusion of my friends I freeze chocolate before eating it just to add some texture as I like the snap. Before now I have tried quite a few chili chocolates and almost all of them chicken out adding just hint of chilli into the bar generally leavign my taste buds disappointed. Grim Reaper's new white Chilli chocolate Purgatory has changed my views on chilli chocolate forever!

The packaging you can see on the left is simple and stunning. An awesome graphic and nice touch of branded ribbon in the side. The writing on the packet continues the familiar wonderful theatrical style accompanying all Grim Reaper products.

"Punished with Hot Naga Jolokia, mixed spices, Cocoa Nibs and Bergamot

Cleanse your soul and confess your sins with this precious White Chocolate Bar. Blended with Cocoa Nibs, Bergamot Oil and Mixed Spices... Are you pure enough to enter a world of heavenly taste?"

On opening the colourful packaging you are greeted with an innocent bar of white chocolate noticeably speckled with hidden treats. Once you bite into the creamy white bar you are greeted with  the delicate warming orange spice of the bergamont balanced with the natural vanilla. The cocoa nibs provide you with a crunchy texture and then BAM! almost unexpected you get the heat of the naga jolokia which is enough to gain the notice of a true chili head but not to much to make it unpleasant or an endurance test. Don't fear or avoid this chocolate if you don't like the power of the naga, the mix of the flavours may sound complex and powerful, possibly too many, but I assure you they are skillfully blended and balanced generating a moreish delight. This blows other chilli chocolates out of the water who just have two flavours and no texture. As I sit here there is one square left from the bar.... I must find some more...

You may be thinking... this sounds good. Don't just take my word for it I came home to a delivery of 2.5 bars of chocolate, the white one had been munched before I even got to open the packet myself!  Grim Reaper's Purgatory chocolate is also winner of a much deserved 2011 National Chilli Award.

If you don't think you can stop at just one bar of chocolate you can buy the full set of these three innovative chili chocolates by clicking the picture below or clicking
here to get Hell Raiser, Black Widow and Purgatory be warned though these are literally so good that at the time of writing this review I know the entire first batch is sold out. But never fear the Reaper is working on a further 2200 bars over this weekend to feed your hunger!
