Another divine white chocolate experience from Estonia: Kalev White Chocolate Strawberry. This kind of sweet temptation is full of cream and wonderful taste. Small strawberry pieces in the chocolate gives this wonderful creation an extra push of excellent flavour. Those strawberry pieces are very sweet and sticky and taste extremly intensive.
The bar I have opened was finished in a very short time. I must confess that Kalev chocolates impress me a lot. Especially this one was a fabulous experience, and I already know if I will return back to Estonia I will take a lot of Kalev chocolates with me back home. Viva Estonia!
Even the design of the wrapping looks very delicious. This promise won’t be a disappointment.
Finally after more than 6 months since my holiday in the Baltics I have found some time to try and taste the Kalev White Chocolate bar with blueberry and crispy rice. The result was just tremendous. This white chocolate is a fabulous creation and I have no idea which kind of thing could be improved in that product. It’s just perfect.
The chocolate full of taste and very creamy. The crispy rice and the refreshing blueberries guarantee the right spice and the whole crowning of the delicious chocolate tasting event. I am very delighted and the bar was finished by my own in a very short time. If I get the chance to get another bar of Kalev White with blueberry I surely won’t doubt and take one.
Estonians know how to make delicious chocolate. Congratulations!!!
The Estonian chocolate manufacturer Kalev was founded in 1806 in the old town of Estonians capital Tallinn by the Swiss confectioner Lorenz Caviezel.
In 1864 the chocolate manufacture was bought by the 25-year-old German Georg Johann Stude. He was the man who made the company to a success. His chocolate creations made him to a legend in Estonia, and the company became the biggest chocolate producer in 1921. The chocolate was also exported to foreign countries like Great Britain, France, USA and even to North Africa, India and China.
In 1948 the company was socialized by the Communist occupiers from Russia. The Soviets also changed the name from Kawe to Kalev. Kalev was the name of a mythologic king of Estonia. Even communism could not stop the success story of the chocolate. Kalev was very popular in the whole Soviet Union and known for its high quality chocolate.
After the end of communism in Estonia, the chocolate factory became private again in 1995. Today Kalev is Estonias biggest candy manufacturer again and in Estonian possession.
I had the luck to receive a product from Kalev. It was the chocolate bar called “Tume Sokolaad Kirsitükkidega”. It’s dark chocolate filled with dried pieces of cherry and apples. The dark chocolate is very tasteful and not too bitter (47% cacao content). The filling of cherries and apples is something quite unique to me and fits quite well. Kalev Chocolate is a very delicious chocolate creation which delighted my senses to its highest pleasure.
