Prendimé Dark Chocolate with Almonds 150g - Amedei


Prendimé Dark Chocolate with Almonds 150g


This chunky chocolate bar is handcrafted in Tuscany and packed with the most wonderful almonds from Sicily. Usually reserved for pastries, Avola Almonds grow at the foot of Mount Etna and require very little water, making them one of the world’s most sustainable nuts. Their thick woody shells keep out any nasties and trap in all the goodness, so they’re packed with antioxidants, protein, Vitamin E, fibre and lots of other nutrients. Intensely bittersweet dark chocolate enveloping the crunchiest roasted whole almonds; this is the sort of chocolate bar that makes the requirement for elaborate desserts completely redundant. Simply serve this vegan-friendly delight with a coffee or a glass of Vin Santo, Passito di Pantelleria or Madeira.

Lead by their passionate founder Cecilia Tessieri, Amedei produces some of Europe’s finest chocolate. Starting up in 1990 crafting praline in a tiny workshop, Cecilia became the first woman to hold the title of Maître Chocolatier and now seeks out rare cocoa beans and plantations from all four corners of the globe. Amedei is a six-time winner of the Academy of Chocolate’s “Golden Bean” award, they’ve topped taste tests in BBC Good Food Magazine and Michel Roux Jr has described their chocolate as “a real treat for me at the end of a hard day in the kitchen.” All of their products are lovingly produced in Tuscany and are gluten free and soya free, with no colouring or artificial flavours. Their Prendimé range – even the name begs you to choose it – comes in a size that’s ideal for sharing, although you’d be completely forgiven for keeping it all to yourself.
