Pierre Marcolini - Les Reves de Pierre

I am a chocaholic, I don't deny it and I love it all - Dark, White or Milk.  Right now I am working my way through a box of Pierre Macolini Songes and I am loving each and every one of them. Expert chocolatier Pierre Marcolini established his luxury chocolate brand in Brussels in 1995 and it is renowned for its use of rare and exotic ingredients such as Sichuan pepper to Moroccan pink berries.

The 2017 Summer Collection, which is available right now, invites you to imagine a summer at its most idyllic: warm weather with a light breeze.; languid moments were everyday concerns make way for flights of fancy; and long evenings that you never want to end. Add to that thought a collection of chocolates which taste every bit as dreamy as they sound and it will send any chocolate loving person into chocolate heaven.

Songes which translate to mean dreams takes chocolate and the user of superfoods to a whole new level.  In my box of 18 chocolates (RRP £19) there are no less than six different varieties to taste and each one amazing and this is what I have in the box:
  • Crunchy chocolate quinoa praline and raspberry ganache, coated in dark chocolate
  • Crunchy three cereal praline (sesame, quinoa and spelt), passion fruit and lime zest caramel, coated in milk chocolate
  • Crunchy sesame praline, yuzu caramel, coated in white chocolate
  • Crunchy Spelt praline, vanilla and star anise ganache, coated in white chocolate
  • Crunchy white almond praline, lemon and bergamot ganache, coated in white chocolate
  • Crunch pearl barley praline, lemon and pink peppercorn caramel, coated in dark chocolate
What I love about these chocolates is the mixture of ingredients that come together in an almost taste explosion.

I never actually expected to like these, even as a choco-a-holic I really detest things such as Turkish Delight and weird flavourings but oddly I couldn't get enough of these and my favourite of the ones from within the box would either be the three cereal praline because it had quite the crunch and texture but ultimately the mixture of passion fruit and lime zest caramel was just incredible and then the crunchy chocolate quinoa praline because the dark chocolate was just amazing.

Also within the Summer 2017 Collection, you will find further additions to the Barre Chocolat range, Ice Creams, further additions to the Frisson Collection and the Financiers Collection, all of which can be found hereAgain, there is a flagship store here on Marylebone High Street where you will find a bespoke chocolate counter, a macaroon carousel, a tasting area and a sweetie bar, I cannot wait to pop in the next time I am in the area, because having had a little taste of the brand, I now want to try more!
