Chai Bubbles Chocolate at Colestown Chocolates

Chai Bubbles Chocolate at Colestown Chocolates

While shopping in Newmarket the other day, beautifully decorated chocolates and treats caught my eye from the doorway and I had to investigate. Situated inside the 277 Westfield mall in Newmarket, Colestown Chocolates produces artisan chocolates, hand-made in small batches using the finest Callebaut chocolate from Belgium. My eyes were drawn to the pretty bronze paint decorating the 'Chai Bubbles' chocolate ($4.00). Aerated milk chocolate is delicately infused with chai spices, then dipped in chocolate again and coated with a bronze lustre. This is the first time I've ever had chai in my chocolate and I have to say I'm now a big fan. And the fact that the chocolate is aerated makes it even more fun to eat. You can really taste the quality in Colestown's chocolate, and I can't wait to try their other creations. Colestown Chocolates: 23/277 Broadway, Newmarket, Auckland 1023
