With a black and gold colour scheme, block typography and the stamp of 'Willie's Cacao' on the front, there's no mistaking the 'Delectable' Indonesian Gold 69% cacao. Soft caramel notes with 69% cacao, this is the bar form of the Javan Light Breaking cacao Willie sells. It is milder, less intense, and easier to eat because of it's familiar bar-like wrapping.
With soft caramel notes the 69% bar is the luxurious, artisan, and dark version of a more familiar chocolate bar with a caramel centre.
I think everyone has a thing for caramel and chocolate; melted, creamy, sweet and smooth toffee-like goo, mixed with chocolate is always regarded as a decadent treat, and frankly it doesn't get better than this.
I found this bar in Waitrose in the confectionery section; it stood out like a bright and shining bar of gold in comparison to the non-artisan chocolates, which truly seemed to pail in comparison to this bar of golden goodness.
Granted, caramel and chocolate, never mind chocolate alone, isn't something you should be eating every day, but now and again, I think a little indulgence is healthy. Plus the quality of ingredients in this bar are far more superior compared with a standard bar of chocolate. It's the quality of this cacao which sets it apart from mass-produced bars.
Willie has tapped into the health benefits of cacao and brought them to the public. The Indonesian God Java bar is considerably 'better' for your health than a bar of milk chocolate and caramel because cacao is naturally high in antioxidants (which help to combat free radicals in the body), but for taste - and pure enjoyment - Willie has added a small amount of sugar and cocoa butter (fat), necessary for optimum joy.
This bar costs £1.80 on the Willie's Cacao website, but in Waitrose it is slighlty more expensive at £2.00. Buying this bar in store is obviously more accessible for UK customers, but if you buy it online Willie's Cacao deliver it within three days.
Enjoy this bar as it is, untouched, it is perfect just as it is.
