How would you like to help Monty Bojangles pick their next flavour? Monty Bojangles are creators of chocolates and sweets. I chose to use creators because Monty Bojangles have a love of creating delicious and exotic flavours. According to their website the flavours are dreamed up in Monty Land, which is reminiscent of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The flavours are discussed in rooms full of noise and colour. The design wizards apparently spin in flurries of ribbons from the ceiling as they think up the flavours. The flavours are designed to take you on a taste adventure and are perfected in the kitchens before being distributed by cannon!
Help Monty Bojangles pick their next flavour
Monty Bojangles are calling on the public to help them choose their next flavour. Michelin starred Chef Mark Sargeant has been appointed as the new chief taste advisor. He has developed three unique flavours which are:
- Lemon Meringue and Black Pepper
- Popcorn and Crispy Crepe
- Coconut and Chilli
Only one of these will be picked to go into Waitrose stores from September and Monty Bojangles are asking the public to decide which one. To cast your vote and have the chance to win a years supply of Monty Bojangles Truffles just head over to Monty Bojangles.com/MontyMoment or tweet @MontyBojangles #MontyMoment on twitter with your choice.
Monty Bojangles Truffles
I was sent some Monty Bojangles truffles to try and to be honest they were not around for long. I did wonder about using them in a recipe, maybe to decorate a chocolate trifle or cake. Before I could come up with a decent idea they had vanished. My excuse was that they magically disappeared although the reality is they were eaten.
Monty Bojangles Pistachio Marooned
First I tried the Monty Bojangles Pistachio Marooned Truffles. These are creamy crunchy truffles with a dusting of bitter sweet cocoa. The creamy flavour works really well with the cocoa dusting and you can taste the pistachio flavour coming though. I can see why they are called pistachio marooned as I would be happy to maroon myself somewhere and eat a box of these. The truffles are really rich and a couple is enough to sort out a chocolate craving.
I also tried Monty Bojangles Berry Bubbly Truffles which are a fruity berry truffle with a surprise contained inside. Popping candy makes an appearance as you eat them which creates a flavour explosion on your tongue. This worked really well with the fruity flavour and was a delicious treat.
You can find Monty Bojangles truffles in Waitrose, don’t forget to vote for your favourite flavour for the chance to win a years supply.
If you are a chocolate lover like I am you may also want to try making these pecan and chocolate honeycomb cookies which are really tasty. Another classic chocolate recipe is chocolate brownies which always go down well with a cup of tea.
I was sent some Monty Bojangles samples to try, I did not have to be nice and my opinions are my own.
