How to Evaluate a Good Chocolate Brand
Numerous home-grown brands are popularizing hand-made chocolates. From lovely packaging to attractive deals, these chocolates are not just worth their looks but also their taste. Authentically made using the best of ingredients, these chocolates are so much better than the machine-made chocolates found so easily all over the markets.
But trying these hand-made chocolates may be dicey. Afterall, you do not know much about them. How do you trust their taste? Even if your favourite bakery (read Bakers’ Fun) makes them, can they assure the quality you are looking for?
When you try chocolates for the first time, look out for the following things.
- Use your sensory organs to evaluate. Don’t just gobble them up in stress. Linger over each piece, roll the chunk in your mouth for some time. Understand the quality of your sensory organs.
- Look out for blemishes and bubbles on the surface. A bar of good quality chocolate should not have them but should appear glossy.
- Some chocolates have a silky texture while others don’t. Note the difference when you pick them.
- It is common for chocolates to be infused with spices, vanilla scent, and so on. But if the secondary ingredient overpowers the aroma of chocolates, it is a problematic bar of chocolate. Avoid it.
- Did you know that the sound of chocolate when you break a bar is also a good indicator of quality? A good chocolate bar will break with a clean, crisp, and sharp snap. Milk and white chocolates, on the other hand, tend to bend more easily because of the high sugar and milk content. They will not snap and break easily.
- A bar of high-quality chocolate will feel velvety and smooth when you taste it.
Chocolates indeed come in many varieties. Nowadays chocolatiers like to experiment with the raw quality of dark chocolates by infusing spices, milk, sugar, and a lot more things to make them interesting. Some of these experiments are surely interesting while many others fall flat on the taste palate. If you like to try out new varieties of chocolates, you should definitely visit the Bakers’ Fun stores to check the Impressions range of chocolate. We also use these hand-made chocolates in our cakes (which is what makes our chocolate cakes is delicious).
If you are ever tired, stressed, or joyful, try out our Impressions chocolates and you will keep coming back for more
