We hope you enjoy these “strange and scrumptious” creations. 'The Enormous Crocodile' is a 40% cocoa rich and creamy milk chocolate shell filled with 6 baby ‘saltwater’ milk chocolate with sea salt crocodiles, made from their house blend of chocolate, which contains cocoa from their own farm in northern Grenada. This is one for all the family!
