TGIF! What’s a Friday without a Likkle More Chocolate?

Fine Pastry Chef and Artisan Chocolatier, Nadine Burie. (Photo: http://www.likklemorechocolate.com)

Founded by Nadine Burie, originally from the Ivory Coast, West Africa, I present to you, Likkle More Chocolate!

Here is a Likkle More Information!

Nadine is a fine pastry Chef and Artisan Chocolatier who did courses at Canada’s most prestigious, Chocolate Academy and more.

It took 4 years to bring the brand, Likkle More Chocolate to life. They
went all around Jamaica, contacting various farmers, building
relationships and testing all regions.

They learnt to ferment and dry the cocoa beans themselves for a
better control of quality. All of this, to give Jamaica a very high quality
product as good as any other Chocolate in the world.

Flavours!

• 55% dark milk with Plantain Chips (1 day in NYC, Nadine tried Potato Chips & Chocolate, loved it. Plantain Chips are one of her favourite snacks, healthy too, so thought it would be amazing to try it and she LOVED IT. We loved it too!)
• 55% dark milk with Sea Salt
• 55% Coconut milk
• 68% dark with Blue Mountain Coffee
• 70% dark with Ginger (Ground into their own Ginger Powder)
• 70% dark with Scotch Bonnet (Scotch Bonnets are dehydrated & ground into powder)
• 72% dark Single Estate (A pure dark chocolate from one of Jamaica’s best regions, St. Thomas. Well known for its fruity notes.)
• White chocolate Green Matcha (A high quality green matcha tea food grade is used that is then infused with White chocolate)

Where can you get them and what’s the cost?!

They cost 950$+ tax each and you can get them at Coffee Traders/Cafe Blue’s Main Office located at 69 Constant Spring Road. Unit 10.

FUN FACTS:

How do they get Colours on the Chocolates?

Each Chocolate mold is painted using a natural and organic coloured cocoa
butter to get the colours on the chocolates.

Tell you Likkle More?

You get an exclusive experience with a mix of everyday, local flavours.

You will feel the Jamaican vibes with splashes of Tropical colours. For
Likkle More, Jamaica is vibrant, it’s happiness, it’s music, it’s beauty, it’s
rich.

Their Chocolates have a high % of Cocoa Nibs because they want it to
be healthier.

For Sweetening, they use brown cane sugar for the milk and dark
chocolates and white cane sugar for the the white chocolates.

Likkle More is Eco-friendly, using all-natural ingredients and plant-
based, recycled and biodegradable packaging

Suga’s Experience with Suga Tasters, Randy Burgess, Kimberly Nesbeth and Damany Calder on Sunday, August 16, 2020

All the flavours were fantastic! My favourite was the 55% dark milk with Plantain Chips (where you actually crunch through the chip!) as well as the 72% dark Single Estate with the fruity flavours. It reminded me of my old favourite back in the day, Cadbury Fruit and Nut, but of course richer with the dark chocolate even though we all enjoyed everything.

The flavours were so rich and pronounced, especially with the Matcha, Ginger and Scotch Bonnet. Their flavours were not overwhelming with pepper, ginger etc. Each Chocolate depending on the flavour, took us on a journey through 2 or more flavour profiles, for instance, sweet to spicy to rich, where everything did not hit us at once and that was remarkable!

Suga’s Likkle More Chocolate tasting was highlighted with locally made accompaniments such as Simo’s Bread & Catering Smoked Marlin Dip and Brie with Rosé Figs, Miss Dutchie Scotch Bonnet Pepper Jelly and Chorlavi’s Pineapple, Carambola & Mango Pepper Jams. All #SugaEndorsed

What can we expect ‘Likkle More’?

‘Likkle More Chocolate will get better and better because everyday we are learning new things and continuing constantly to test because we want each time to be better’ says Founder, Nadine Burie.
