The first Australian-made chocolate bar I tried was by The Smooth Chocolator and I was immediately a fan of them! Now I’m trying a different chocolate maker. I recently saw Trish from Eating the Chocolate Alphabet try a couple Zokoko bars, and it encouraged me to unwrap the one I had in my stash. I have their goddess dark chocolate with orange since it was the only flavor available at the time when I made the order through (I think) Cocoa Runners.
This bar smelled very chocolaty and orange. It’s like those orange shaped chocolates but with a stronger orange scent. The flavor was also strongly of orange. The description on Zokoko’s website says the flavor is “deep, rich cocoa notes with tangy citrus reminiscent of an orange orchard”. I didn’t feel like this reminded me of an orange orchard. The orange flavoring was a bit strong for me but I liked the end and aftertaste where the flavor was subtler. The chocolate itself was very smooth and a bit fudge-y in texture.
Not my top favorite bar but I didn’t hate it either. The texture was very nice, though. I’d try another Zokoko bar if I get the chance!
