Chocodelic Chocolate Covered Incan Berries

These are delicious, I love these. The Incan berries have a sweet lemony, tartness without being at all sour. They are wrapped in luxuriously thick chocolate, and the combination is a sophisticated treat. Each one is big compared to a choc-covered raisin - almost the size of a Malteser, so I find just one or two is enough to round off a meal. For me, it's not just that they taste wonderful, but they also seem to have a happy, sunny vibe that makes me feel cheery when I eat them. Where that comes from I don't know - maybe the people who make them are sunny-natured folk who put love into what they do. On the packet it says 'stimulating passion' - a perfect description! On the basis of how these taste, I want to try the other chocolate goodies in this range. I bet the almonds are good.
I always did like lemon and chocolate flavours together - when I ate conventional chocolates, one of my favourites was the dark chocolate lemon parfait from a well-known retail chain of chocolatiers. I did worry that I'd feel deprived when I switched to raw, but now there are so many high-quality, delicious raw chocolate goodies on offer that make it easy to avoid being tempted by the cooked, sugary stuff. I'm just hoping someone will come up with a raw version of my other favourite, the apricot parfait - hint!
