Weirdest Chocolate Flavours

SWEET POTATO – JAPAN

The Japanese must have a love of sweet potatoes like wedges or chips with a burger. But in a chocolate? No thank you.

BASMATI RICE WITH SAFFRON – AUSTRIA

I would have thought that this would be from my home country of India but it’s not. the chocolate contains “fluffy light” basmati rice, saffron and raspberry vinegar. For real.

BACON – AMERICA

But ofcourse. Bacon makes everything better and who else but the Americans can add bacon to chocolate. We’ve had bacon vodka, bacon jam and even bacon toothpaste. Now, you can sample your favourite porky product in chocolate too. I am sure to overdose on this.

CHEESE AND ONION – IRELAND

Sounds like something more made for chips or crisps. Back in 2013, Irish company Tayto decided to make a slightly nightmarish cheese and onion crisp chocolate bar. They sold all of the 100,000 samples made. I am not sure but it sounds like it could be good.

PIG BLOOD – ITALY 

It’s not for the ones who are easily squeamish.  A chocolate dessert from Italy which includes shaved chocolate, milk, orange peel, sugar and the blood of a freshly slaughtered pig. It’s often served with some sponge fingers for you to dip in. Let the carnivorous beast inside you out. 

SHIITAKE MUSHROOMS – AMERICA 

I for one love mushrooms. In a soup, in a curry, on my pizza – but in a chocolate? This bar includes dried mushrooms and Peruvian dark chocolate ganache, hand-dipped in nutty Colombian chocolate. Head to America for your chance to taste it.

TOBACCO – CUBA 

Cuba is famous for it’s top quality cigars. Therefore it makes total sense that they would be the ones to put tobacco in chocolate. Not sure I would try it though. If you fancy a taste of authentic Havana then a chuck of this will have you dreaming of the Caribbean nation. It contains real cigar leaves soaked in rum, which is a world away from your typical Galaxy bar. If chomping on tobacco is your thing, have a go here.
