Chocolatier launches taste of the exotic

A CHOCOLATIER in Watlington has launched 10 new varieties.

A CHOCOLATIER in Watlington has launched 10 new varieties.

Tutu Delicious, which makes and sells its confectionery from its premises in High Street, will unveil the new bars tonight (Friday) from 6pm to 9pm and visitors will be able to sample them.

The range includes four dark chocolate bars originating from countries such as Java, Peru and Venezuela. There are three milk chocolate varieties originating in Ghana and three white chocolate bars which contain walnuts, pistachios and raspberries.

Owner Zoe Haynes said: “They all have different characteristics, a bit like wine. We have got a smoky one which has got a bit of tobacco in it and there’s one with red wine notes and blackcurrants.

“I think it’s just a natural progression from what we have been doing, which was concentrating on truffles. It’s diversifying. It’s something I’ve been meaning to do for a long time.”

Manager Liza Simon said: “People can come and watch us make it — we’re not mass-producing. The most important thing to us is the taste and quality of the things we produce.”

The firm, which will celebrate its fifth anniversary at the end of the year, plans to sell the bars to businesses and farm shops.
