Is one enough?

Sometimes you have in front of you a box of chocolates. That box has a lot of different chocolates. Sometimes, you can eat the whole box, but sometimes the chocolates are so dense and packed with flavour that you can only savour one at a time. This was the case with this collection of Paul A Young chocolates I got in London recently. These chocolate craftsmen are very inventive with their flavours and aromas. Salted caramel was brilliant, but they had a version with cigar infused onto the outside to give a warmth and a sensation to the lips; the mandarin bonbons had a creamy filling with multiple layers of mandarin, from the juice, with hints of lemon, lime, and rinds. These are complex chocolates and they were great. However, while there is a place and a time for them, sometimes you want more than one chocolate, and it would be a shame to do that with these.
