Great Taste, the world’s most coveted blind-tasted food awards, which celebrates the very best in food and drink has announced the Great Taste stars of 2018. Out of 12,500 products to be judged, Choc Amor of Lancashire was awarded a 2- star Great Taste award for its Brown Butter and Nibs in a rich 45% milk chocolate and a 1-star for Tonka Bean in 61% dark chocolate. Choc Amor was one of the biggest winners in Lancashire and the only chocolatiers to win a coveted 2-star.
Both awards are judged by the most demanding palates, belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restaurateurs and producers as well as a whole host of food writers and journalists, Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers. As well as a badge of honour, the unmistakeable black and gold Great Taste label is a signpost to a wonderful tasting product, which has been discovered through hours and hours of blind-tasting by hundreds of judges.
A delighted Paul Williams Head Chocolatier at Choc Amor said “This is the sixth year we have entered and the sixth year we have won. 200 winners in all four chocolate categories and we are up there with some of the biggest names in the UK. Winning these have now taken us to 15 Great Taste Awards in total which we are really proud of. Our total haul this year is 6 awards, as we picked up 4 at The Academy of Chocolates In London earlier in the year.
“We would like to thank all our staff for this great team effort and our amazing customers for their continued support.”
