Last week my dad went to the Great British Beer Festival, and aside from having plenty of beer, they had lots of food as well. One of the traders he came across was chocolatier's called Merry Berry Truffle, so he deiced to buy me some of their selection as a treat.

Merry Berry is a small connoisseur British family run chocolate company from Burton upon Trent in Staffordshire. Founded by Emily Flanagan in 2010, they hand make a unique range of flavoured truffles and bars, such as cinnamon, chilli with lime and ginger, and cracked black pepper.

Dad brought me home some of their simpler - but just as outstanding - treats in the form of chocolate buttons.

The simplistic brown paper bag they came gives the sense of them being natural, organic, and unmessed with.

First I tried their 43% milk buttons made with Venezuela cacao. Although milk chocolate, it was not particularly sweet, but instead had tones of pistaciho nuts. The 64% dark buttons from Peru was slightly bitter, but that was cut through with some sharp fruity undertones.

I was surprised at the price of these chocolates, which were only 2.50 a bag. Considering that the Peruvian chocolate used a blend of Trinitario and the rarer, more expensive Criollo beans, it is a very good deal.
