Pretty Flower Chocolate

Name: Jasmine Green Tea Chocolate
Brand: Splendid Specialties
Place Purchased: Cost Plus
Price: $3.19
Size: 1.5 oz
Calories per ounce: 174
Type: Chocolate

The prettiest tasting chocolate I’ve ever had. These medallions of milk chocolate are a little on the sweet size, but have a good mouth feel. There’s slight bit of graininess to it towards the end.

But the taste is the real winner here. It’s milk chocolate, but has the fragrance of jasmine tea. It’s not clingy or soapy feeling, simply floral and clean.

The flavor lingers, like a mint would a half hour later. It’s not really the kind of candy you’d idly snack on, it’s more of a finishing chocolate. Something that you eat at the very end of the meal.

I plan to try the other flavors.

  1. Most excellent reportage-ing! I can nearly taste the candies!

    And so far your descriptions have saved me hundreds of calories and ten dollars!! Woo Hoo!

    This is what I appreciate, most, about the Internets!

  3. i invented Chalk-olate, it is chocolate you can write on a chalkboard with and it works too, and then you can eat it and it is nontoxic.

  5. recently I had the pleasure of a sample of a ginger chew sounding much like the description of Chimes Ginger Chew.  I have been looking everywhere for them without success… where could I purchase some?

    Gloria - There are quite a few different brands for the Ginger Chews. If you have a Cost Plus World Market nearby (and I think they’re in your state) they carry both Chimes and a bagged version from The Ginger People. You can also find the chews at Asian markets.

  7. This sounds interesting. I actually like candy that has a floral or tea flavor, but I’ve never tried any kind of floral/tea flavored chocolate. The tin it comes in is pretty too!
