There are few things us Domestic Sluts love more than chocolate, so I was suitably excited when a box of Les Volcaniques (£12.50) popped through my letterbox yesterday. They're described by Galler Chocolates as full of "smoky aromas" and "intense heat" - not phrases you'd ordinarily use to describe a box of chocolates, but Les Volcaniques are inspired by fire after all.
As each chocolate is only a small disc, you can just about cope with the strong flavours. But that didn't stop a couple of varieties from being over-powering and a little sickly. One of them tasted to me like smokey bacon crisps. Thankfully, the rest were rather lovely and quite fun to eat (yes, I get my kicks guessing what Szechuan Pepper chocolates taste like).
These chocolates would work very well after a dinner party, but for Friday night scoffing I'd stick to Milk Tray.
