Cukrcek Chocolate from the company called “Benedict” is the first Slovenian chocolate here on this website. I got those delicacies unrequested by mail from the manufactuer. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THAT!
There several chocolate bars with different flavours in the box. I decided to start with the “white chocolate with orange”.
Before some words about the manufacturer. The company called “Benedict podjetje za notranjo in zunanjo trgovino, d.o.o.” was founded in February 1991 with a starting capital of 8.763,14 Euro. Bededict d.o.o. is located in the capital Ljubljana. Their chocolates are made by hand with “love and devotion”, how they wrote on their website.
The Cukrcek chocolate makers put a lot attention on the raw materials, which is always important for a proper chocolate bar. The chocolate is made only from cocoa that originates in Latin America and is grown on plantations of Caribbean islands (Aruba, Cuba, ….).
Alright, enough words about it. Let’s take a closer look on the chocolate. On the top of the box I can read something in Slovenian language: “ko razvada postane navada”. On the back I can read some informations in English language.
White Chocolate with orange:
Orange is a popular winter fruit, quite well known in Slovenia. It is the most spread citrus fruit in the world and is produced in diverse variants. Some oranges are yellow and some are red. Various parts of an orange can be used for medicine purposes, primarily the peel of the unriped fruit, the leaves and flowers of a bitter orange. The healing power of oranges strenghtens our immune system and has an anticancerogenous effect. It prevents strokes, diabetes, and many other chronic diseases. Historically oranges are deemed as saviours of sailors – the consummation of oranges prevented sure death by scurvy.
Ingredients: sugar, cocoa butter, skimmed powdered milk, emulsifier: lecitin, vanilla, orange. Cocoa solids: 25 percent minimum.
Net content: 85g.
So how does it taste? It is a tender flavour at the beginning. Some seconds later I have experienced a strong taste of orange. The chocolate is not too sweet for a white one, and the orange flavour is unmistakably. My wife also tasted some lemon, but I wasn’t able to do that.
Cukrcek white chocolate with orange is a brillant chocolate creation. I would buy that without any doubts. Well done, Slovenia!
