Chili Pepper Product Reviews

Jersey Devil Chocolates

 

My First impression

Nice label. It's clean with a nice fire illustration and a cool devil head logo, so you're pretty sure what you'll get when you first open it up. It tells you right off: "hot & spicy", and you get the main ingredients: "Chocolate, chili and cranberries". I had high expectations from this combination.

Jersey Devil Chocolates

Appearance/Smell/Taste

After ripping through the wrapper, you're introduced to a rich dark chocolate, and it smells delicious, the aroma of deep sweetness only good quality dark chocolate can bring. It's a good sized bar, 3 ounces, poured into portions that are easy to divide.

We snapped off a few pieces and noted the raging pink of the cranberries peeking out from the dense chocolate. This chocolate bar is clearly loaded up with enough cranberries. You don't see the chili peppers inside - it's more of a chili powder blended into the chocolate, so you'll notice only the heat, not the texture.

 

And yes, it does have some heat. We tasted several rectangles and enjoyed the sweet-tart cranberries combined with the heavy chocolate flavor, but the chili pepper heat does not assert itself until moments later. It doesn't necessarily come through in taste, but after a bite or two, you'll notice the familiar, slow, pleasant burn of a mild-to-medium-heat chili pepper. Being chili pepper lovers, we have a high tolerance for all things spicy, and this was surprisingly nice. Not too hot at all, but a pleasant sensation of warming from the inside out.

Jersey Devil Chocolates

The Party

We had extra so we brought our remaining chocolate to a wine tasting party. Dark chocolate is well known to enhance the flavors of certain types of red wines, so we thought it would be a perfect fit. We didn't tell anyone it was chocolate infused with chili pepper. The reaction was positive overall. Many were surprised at the heat, though everyone said it wasn't too hot for them. Many went back for seconds and thirds.

That said, we'd recommend this product to all of our chili pepper loving friends.
