Found this at a local deli, and I was initially intrigued by the decorative tin. Inside I found small leaf-shaped chocolates, wrapped in a brown wax paper.

The chocolate itself was quite smooth with a good melt in the mouth. Somewhat earthy and raw tasting. The ingredients were simple: cocoa mass, sugar, soya lecithin, vanillin.

Overall quite a nice little experience, especially when you factor in the nice tin (a colleague of mine actually uses the tin to carry small items in her bag!).
