Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens are actually quite high on our list of favourite things, but another two other things that sit up there are Polka Chocolate and Golden Dawn bar – so our excitement on learning that the two have come together in the coolest and most delicious way – limited edition chocolate – had us doing a fancy little dance straight out of The Sound of Music.
We had Polka founder and chocolate queen Jane Mason send us through a few little notes on this grand new collaboration…
“The wrapper is designed by artist Tom Henry, whose incredible work you may recognise from the interiors of Golden Dawn, not to mention many of their posters and flyers.
What’s inside is bean-to-bar dark chocolate made completely from scratch, fairly traded, organic and all the good stuff, dairy and gluten-free and suitable for vegans. Mixed through that is bronze fennel toffee using fresh herbs. I would describe it as a subtle aniseed flavour.
Nick from Golden Dawn suggests matching it with PX Sherry or Hallertau #4 (a dark ale). Will definitely be trying that.”
This limited-edition bar is only available from Golden Dawn… other than the three beautiful blocks we’re giving away! To enter, just tell us in the comments below which Polka flavour is your favourite. Easy peasy.
P.S. If, like us, you now have that song in your head, we suggest fully indulging and watching the below video, dancing along if it feels right… With Polka Bronze Fennel Toffee and a sherry, even better…
