When you think of animal crackers do you think of those little cookies? That’s what I thought of until I had the opportunity to sample some chocolate from Graffiti Zoo. Now all I can think of is yummy chocolates with fun animal names.
Graffiti Zoo’s slogan is “where the animals feed you”. And they do. Every product they make bears the name of an animal. No matter if the name sounds like it might be a real animal or if it’s just a whimsical one, these names are sure to get your attention. If the names don’t get your attention the chocolate surely will because it’s got some really unique flavor combinations.
We received samples of a number of varieties including:
Margarita Manatee – Silky White Chocolate with a Sparkle of Lime
Almond Amaretto Armadillos – Crunchy Milk Chocolate with a Dash of Amaretto
Backstage Calicos – White and Milk Chocolate with a thrilling Orange ending
Bohemian Tree Frogs – The flavor of Wild Raspberries and Toasted Almonds swirled together in White and Milk Chocolate
Chilean Fire Ants – Cinnamon White Chocolate with a Hot Chili Bite
Moroccan Elephants – Smooth Milk Chocolate with the Passion of Orange Zest and Spicy Ginger
Pink Flamingos – The flavors of Washington Cherries and Fresh Coconut
Polar Peppermint Penguins – Dark Chocolate Peppermint
Most of the candy we received were chunks of bark style chocolate. I would have never dreamed of mixing some of these ingredients together but they blend together to create an exquisite and unique taste. Even with the blend of ingredients and textures there was no mistaking the flavor of fine, smooth chocolate. My favorite was the Polar Peppermint Penguins – it was like Thin Mint cookies turned into candy! RB really enjoyed the unique flavor of the Bohemian Tree Frogs. TJ liked the Chilean Fire Ants because he loves food with a kick.
