Chocolatier Captures the Flavour of Autumn in a Single Chocolate - and Wins a Great Taste Award For It
Like something out of Willy Wonka, a family-owned chocolate shop in Norfolk, The Pod Chocolates, has been awarded a Great Taste Award.
Like something out of Willy Wonka, a family-owned chocolate shop in Norfolk, The Pod Chocolates, has been awarded a Great Taste Award for a chocolate truffle that perfectly encapsulates the rustic flavours of Autumn: Norfolk apple and spiced cinnamon.
As over 90 million autumnal hashtags start to trend, this unique chocolate is a scroll-stopping product for those celebrating the season of spiced lattes and knitted jumpers.
The truffle is the brainchild of small business owner and chocolatier Mel Pittman, who spent her time in lockdown creating new and exclusive flavours.
The Guild of Fine Food, who awarded The Pod Chocolates their second Great Taste Award, has described the chocolate as “very clever and well made.” “The crisp crunchy outer casing contrasts beautifully with the soft velvety filling. We are getting a real freshness of apple flavour. The warmth from the spices and cinnamon gives it a level of sophistication. The cinnamon lingers at the end and adds a more savoury aromatic spice note. A cleverly executed fun idea!”
Mel Pittman has responded with “We’re chuffed. We love to explore with new and unique flavours at The Pod Chocolates, so it’s fantastic to get such high recognition for it. I can’t wait to see what we create next!”
The Norfolk Apple truffle is available to buy through the website (UK national shipping).
