The Cardamon with Cocoa Nibs Charnia Chocolate Fossil
Cardamon chocolate might seem an unusual combination but it is a partnership that we think works perfectly together. Usually the aromatic spice cardamom is combined with savoury dishes. So some might think combining it with chocolate is a little strange . However, we think the warm sweet taste of cardamon combines beautifully with our creamy white chocolate. Finally, we liberally sprinkle the cardamon chocolate with crunchy cocoa nibs and hand craft them into the Charnia shapes to create the Cardamon and Cocoa Nibs Charnia. Delicious!
The Charnia fossil is a delicate leaf shape with leaf like ridges branching left and right. Therefore, we have skillfully recreated its delicate leaf like fronds in chocolate to show the beauty of this special fossil. Above all, we are really pleased with the results and hope all our fossil and chocolate lovers will be too!
There are 8 chocolate fossils measuring approximately 5.5 cm in length and weighing just over 5g in each box. So more than just a mouthful to enjoy!
The Charnia Fossil is named after Charnwood Forest in Leicestershire, England. This is where the first fossilised specimen was found by schoolboy Roger Mason in 1957. The original fossil is now in Leicester Museum. It is one of the Ediacaran lifeforms. It has segmented, leaf-like ridges that branch alternately to the right and left.
