Product Review: NewTree Chocolates

I recently saw some new chocolate in the store and had to try it!

While New Tree does have a website (, I was unable to find the Pink Peppercorn chocolate bar anywhere. However, the first google hit including 'peppercorn' was Walmart, so perhaps it's a special thing just for them... They had several varieties available, I chose the 2 that appealed to me...

The first I opened was the dark chocolate with pink peppercorns. I was overwhelmed by the pepper smell just opening the package. Strangely it seems very floral. The bar was already broken a bit, and I could see the pretty red (fine, pink) peppercorns. Sadly I couldn't enjoy the chocolate much as the peppercorn flavor was very overpowering. The little crunches were nice, but definitely too much pepper flavor. Not *hot* but definitely too much flavor. I rate this flavor...

One Ear Up.

That left the lavender milk chocolate. It had a lovely delicate floral scent UNDER the chocolate, not overpowering it, and I was glad to see there were no lavender stems or flowers in the chocolate. The chocolate was creamy and smooth and melted quickly in my mouth filling it with a subtle lavender flavor before disappearing into a chocolaty aftertaste. I rate this flavor...

Two Ears Up!

Now if only I could find a nice dark chocolate violet...
