Well I said on Monday how much I like trying brand new companies. They’re not always great (Elizabeth Shaw’s stuff at the start of the week was pretty disappointing) but there is the chance that it could be great, which is enough to energise me. Maybe that’s because I’m an optimist…but the way I see it, every new company you try could well be brilliant. And that is what I’m hoping for from Lily O’Brien’s and their Salted Caramel Chocolates.

I always look forward to trying new companies’ products. When you eat as much chocolate as I do, it can get a bit ‘samey’ from time to time as you try an ordinary flavour combination from an ordinary company. A product from a company you haven’t encountered before brings a little bit of excitement to proceedings though…because they might just shake things up and offer you something special or radically different. So whilst shopping in Waitrose just before Christmas, I took the plunge and bought some of Elizabeth Shaw’s Orange Crisp dark chocolates.
Among the very first reviews I wrote on this site were The Grown Up Chocolate Company’s Salted Peanut Caramel Cracker and Crunchy PralineWonder Bar. I loved them both and they’re both among the highest scoring bars on here- they were packed with flavour, very fresh and a joy to eat. So it was with real excitement that I learnt that The Grown Up Chocolate Company also ran a chocolate tasting club, similar to that of Hotel Chocolat.
