Caviar of Chocolat

Chocolate enrobed Caviar?!!


Caviar in the chocolate? Hmm... I really haven't try before but this is really regarded as the Caviar of Chocolate due to its appearance that resembles a luxury delicacy and much sought after, non-fertilized sturgeon roe. Ok, there's really no sturgeon roe in there but it's actually biscuit cereals coated in dark chocolate.

No other can do this as good as this French chocolatier.


EQUINOXE - Crunchy Pearls Pack 2.64oz
It's sold in twos - one with crunchy grain & the other candied orange.


My boxes of chocolates look good in a bowl of beansprouts too!


Trying different shooting modes on the DSLR.



This is really an addictive indulgence. Imagine the irresistible crunchy pearls coated with 55% cocoa which is made in the Valrhona factory, melting in your palate and providing that extra crunch! It's made from the best ingredients and coated with the best chocolate made in the factory at the Valley of Rhone.

It tastes like rice crispies coated with a semi bitter smooth chocolate and I enjoy popping it into my mouth pieces by pieces. It might be a little difficult to hold on too, using a spoon is a good idea but it's not as fun as using your fingers.



I would call this the amuse bouche of chocolates just like caviar! Have the miniature spheres a little before tucking into a bar of Valrhona Guanaja or even have them be sprinkled onto your favourite ice-cream dessert!



EQUINOXE - Crunchy Pearls Pack 2.64oz

This is like the mini version of an orange peel coated with chocolate. This small little bottle contains candied orange peels coated in dark chocolate with a minimum of 66% dark chocolate.



This is also another favourite chocolate of mine. The chocolate coating is not too thick so that you can still taste the smoothness of a Valrhona chocolate. The candied orange peels provide an acidulous notes to the semi bitter chocolate. You have to try it to get into the addiction of what is called a piece of good chocolate that is worth paying an arm and a leg for!

I can assure you that any other brands that is available in the city might not be able to rival the taste and quality of this!

You can only find both of this product in Singapore. I found it selling at SGD$20 at the ThreeSixty Marketplace in Ion Orchard. Cheers to good chocolate!

Sean: I've heard of foie gras enrobed with chocolate but caviar not yet!

I heard of pop rocks candy coating foie gras. Love these pearls as I use them in baking. So many flavors to try.

Boo: Ooh... that's funky! But these pearls (biscuit crispies) are plain coated with dark chocolate and thus they don't come in various flavours.
