Rococo Chocolates Bee Bars Review

Rococo Chocolates Bee Bars review

Rococo Chocolates are a luxury treat, offering delicious chocolates filled with natural goodness. They are a company that outright refuse the use of artificial products, sourcing the best ingredients and keeping their customers healthy and happy with their sweet treats.

I was lucky enough to sample the following from the Rococo Chocolates Bee Bars collection, distinguished by their bright pastel colours and bee pattern upon the chocolate mould:


40% Cocoa Organic Milk Chocolate Bee Bar
– The sweet classic. This slow melting treat is created using cocoa beans harvested from Rococo Chocolates ‘home farm’ in North Grenada. Extra cocoa butter is added to the 40% cocoa solid bar to create its creamy texture and rich flavour, sweetened further by a hint of caramel. This bar is simply delicious, defining Rococo Chocolates craftsmanship in its best and plainest form.

Rose Organic Milk Chocolate Bee Bar – This floral treat is perfumed and fragrant, bringing back memories of my grandmothers garden. Rose infused, this chocolate is the most delicious of the bunch! The distinct flavour is due to the key ingredient pure rose otto, a fragrant and flavoured oil created from steam distilling roses. Think the best turkish delight you could possibly try. 

Sea Salt Organic Milk Chocolate Bee Bar – The Sea Salt Bee Bar was my favourite of the selection, a mix of savoury and sweet and done so to perfection. The peculiar bar is ingrained with delicate grains of sea salt, leaving  its taste and creating a dramatic contrast on the old taste buds.  Rococo’s founder, Chantal, was inspired ‘after walking along a beach eating an ice cream with the salt in the sea air catching on her lips’. Although wonderful, I would be wary of this salt infused bar, if you get greedy, you will be feeling a tad sea sick!

Cardamom Organic White Chocolate Bee Bar – This was the most unique bar for me. It is infused with cardamom, a luxury aromatic ground spice and a flavour that I have not experienced before. It is prominent within the bar, offering a bitty and flavoursome texture against the sweetness of the white chocolate.  

These 20g bars are priced at £1.60 each and worth every penny for a delicious ethically-sourced treat.

This adult novel is famous/infamous, whichever way you want to put it really. I go with the latter.

I myself, not an expert in literary technique, found it poorly written and rather repetitive. A lot of sex and phrases: He filled me’, ‘long fingers’ and ‘fifty shades of …’.  Saying that however, does not mean I thought the book was horrifically bad. It is a simplistic idea that many would fear to persue and a rather saddening attempt at mainstream erotica.
Many are intrigued by 50 Shades of Grey due to it being dubbed ‘mummy porn’. In my opinion it is a book that reawakens awkward memories of youth and the trials and tribulations of developing yourself sexually. As for it being about BDSM (standing for Bondage, Discipline, Sadism and Masochism) I failed to find anything excessively raunchy. Sure there was some spanking and restraints but nothing more than ‘kinky’ or even ordinary (Christian puts it as ‘vanilla’) sex.
The novel is concerned with the love struck and deranged couple of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.  Actually, scrap that, there is a third character, Anastasia’s ‘inner goddess’/subconscious. the opposite of her blushing, insecure and virginal self. Oh and she too is rather unbearable at times in her quest of self discovery.  Christian, on the other hand, is a business giant, suave and miserable. Who says money buys happiness eh?
So this British literature loving, poverty stricken graduate falls for the desperately controlling Christian. All in all, the whole affair is a tad unrealistic. He is a billionaire, letting some unknown woman into his ‘Red Room of Pain’, trusting her and lavishing her in unwanted gifts, as she swiftly adjusts from virgin, to sex goddess. A transformation that takes place all in less than twenty four hours. Every mans fantasy, it would seem.
The plot is also basic. Anastasia finishes college, meets Christians parents, moves home, visits her parents and this is all before the big and disappointing finale. Did I forget to mention the frequent sex at Christians multi-million dollar love pad during it all? All this is constructed around Christians constant nagging of Anastasia to sign his BDSM contract, something she opposes according to her mood of the day.
Overall, 50 Shades of Grey is worth the read if you like simplistic language, mediocre sex scenes or are truly bored. It pens out the tale of two very confused and unhinged characters, seemingly unsure of how to function in ordinary society and I think that is where the majority of the appeal comes from. Everyone loves the unknown, confused and messed up.
