Prestat Dark Chocolate English Mint Crunch

I love everything about this bar. I got it at the Chocolate Show and have been slowly enjoying it since then. The chocolate is my favorite amount of darkness (71%), and the balance of mint and chocolate is just right.

According to their website, Prestat has held a Royal Warrant from Her Majesty the Queen for over 35 years. They now hold a Royal Warrant from me, as well.

BOTTOM LINE: One of the best chocolate mint bars I've ever found.


  1. Two things: 1) That looks good and 2) I hope you did not take a week to eat that tiny bite Leila!!! I had a bar of "emergency" chocolate in my office which I ate during two "emergencies" neither of which were actually emergencies and both of which occurred within 24 hours of each other.

    Also, I recently had for the first time in a long time Ben and Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie and I was surprised/re-impressed with it's chocolateyness. How does it compare to your standard artisanal brands? I think David won't like the chocolate base because it is quite creamy but I kind of loved it.

  2. Also re: CH. It might be worth checking out one of these outposts while you are down here, David: this ice cream is AMAZING (though I have never had their chocolate): http://theparlourdurham.com/

  3. I will try to find it! And I will keep you posted as to my plans!
