Cocoa & Nuts in Vancouver
Sisters and Brothers, today we will look at the final offering from CocoaNymph, a Vancouver chocolatier. Previously we looked at their Sea Nymph bar and 8 flavors of their bons. Today we're going to look at two types of flavored tree nuts, only one of which has chocolate so that is the only one that will get a full sensory review.
The other tub is "Emilia's Walnuts" which are walnuts covered in a glaze of brown sugar and balsamic vinegar. No cocoa or chocolate so I can't really review them other than to say that personally the vinegar was a bit too strong for my personal tastes. Yes, CocoaNymph, contrary to it's name, does offer confections that are not chocolate.
If you liked the description of the these almonds from CocoaNymph then you must check them out. For our reader in Vancouver, please do let us know if you've visited their brick and mortar store at 3739 W. 10th Ave (at Alma) and what you thought of it. Just so you know, the two varieties we looked at today are not on the website. This probably means they offer seasonal nut treats so keep checking back in or visit the store.
