Cukrcek Dark chocolate with Teran from Slovenia. The chocolate was also in the parcel which I have received directly from the manufacturer.
The introduction on the back of the box is as follows: Unquestionably Teran is a Slovene wine speciality. Teran is wine, produced on the Kras plateau, from the grapes of the wine Refosk. This is a red sort of wine, heavily influenced by the fact that it grows on Terra rossa, which is an unique soil when it comes to wine growing.
Teran is rich in antioxidants that fight the free radicals, prevent against cancerous and other disases and are even said to slow down the aging process. The vintage aroma and taste of the wine come from the sun that in the summer shines over all the vineyards in Slovenia.
It’s difficult to taste something out of the Teran flavour inside the chocolate. For me it’s a good dark chocolate.

Another delicious chocolate I got from Slovenia. White chocolate with blackberry. The backberries are inside and on the bottom of the chocolate bar. The surface is plain and has the engraving of the manufacturer.
Well, what can I say. The chocolate tasted brillant. The blackberry pieces had quite proper sizes. It just took a very short time and the whole bar was eaten.
On the back of the chocolate box I could read following information:
White chocolate with blackberry
A fresh blackberry is a sweat [sic!] fresh fruit which ripens in the summer and which was recently indentified as one of the best weapons against cancer. A study has shown that blackberries contain the highest amount of antioxidants and very significant anti-cancer properties.
The package of the chocolate: “ko razvada postane navada”. Bela cokolada z robido.

Conclusion: Another fabulous chocolate from Cukrcek. Cukrcek white chocolate with blackberry has the right sweet, and the blackberry pieces are the right crowning of a great product.
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!
