Wild Patch Chocolates. And hoorah! What a great place to land. Wild Patch Chocolates was set up by chocolatier Linda Komesaroff who found herself on the possibly awkward journey of becoming sugar-free. But rather than having to find a new vocation, she started making glucose-sweetened chocolate. What a brilliant idea. And lucky for us!
So as a result, I received a cardboard package full of chocolate (well, it wasn't that much) in my letterbox the other day. It was a Wild Patch sample pack - a milk chocolate animal, a dark chocolate cashew nut cluster, and a plain dark block made by Filita (a European chocolate that Wild Patch distributes).
And yes, it was really good! Fantastic. Definitely the best sugar free chocolate I have tasted. I'm such a fan of glucose, and delighted that it wins in the chocolate sweetening competition. Yet another 10 points to glucose. And, may I say, another win for me as I attempt to convince you that you can live without sugar.
Relative to other sugar-free chocolates, Wild Patch chocs are reasonably priced, but the delivery costs from Australia make it a pretty frivolous option. But if you are in NZ and interested in trying some (and keeping a little stocked in your pantry), let me know and we could make it work together.
And if you want a sample square, you'd better visit me very soon.
