Chocolarder - Milk Chocolate - Cornish Honeycomb 50%
Master beekeeper Matt Pitt cares for his colonies of Cornish black bees by using sustainable methods that are stress and chemical free for the good health of his fuzzy compatriots.
He supplies Chocolarder with fresh tree honey from which to make our own honeycomb, which delivers deep, heavy honey flavours and a pleasing crunch alongside our creamy milk chocolate.
In the springtime the Cornish hedgerows hum with the sound of bees doing their good work, so Chocolarder looked for a Cornish beekeeper who could supply them with some delicious local honey from which to make their honeycomb.
Meeting Matt Pitt was a revelation to the maker. Not only could he readily supply the goods, he also came with an abundance of bee expertise and knowledge that turned Chocolarder's foodie interest into bee-vangelical fervour.
Matt keeps Cornish Black Bees, and is working hard to support and encourage their colonies to repopulate Cornwall. This breed of honeybee is naturally resilient to our climate, but numbers have significantly declined, largely due to human interference.
It’s estimated that there are now half the number of bees in the UK that were here just 20 years ago. Threats include non-traditional beekeeping methods and hive transportation that stress the colonies, the importation of non-native bees along with pests and diseases, and the loss of most of our wildflower meadows.

Tastes like a regular supermarket milk chocolate. And couldn't detect any honeycomb flavour.
Hello Andre and thank a lot for your feedback. We are very appreciative of any reviews, including bad ones. The only point worth mentioning here, to our opinion, is the fact that even if you didn't like the bar you consumed minimum ingredients (Cocoa beans, unrefined raw sugar, milk powder, honey and bicarbonate of soda in case of Chocolarder's bar) in comparison with supermarket chocolates, like, lets say Lindt's Lindor Milk Chocolate (Sugar, Vegetable Fat (Coconut, Palm Kernel), Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Mass, Whole Milk Powder, Lactose, Skim Milk Powder, Anhydrous Milk Fat, Emulsifier (Soya Lecithin), Barley Malt Extract, Flavourings)
