Our Top 5 Alternatives To The Traditional Chocolate Bar

July 13th, 2021

Eating chocolate is such an experience! But what are the alternatives to the traditional chocolate bar?

Why we Love Chocolate?

It not only makes us feel good but also sets off several minor chemical reactions that make our brain and body happy. We all know about the feel-good hormones, don’t we? Well, eating chocolates releases serotonin and dopamine which makes our chocolate eating experience what it is – comforting and divine!

While traditional chocolate bars are a favourite, there are other sweet alternatives that you can feast on without compromising on the experience you crave.

At Melt, we have compiled a list of our traditional chocolate alternatives, that’ll leave you wanting more.

Let’s take a look!

1. Orange Slices Dipped in Dark Chocolate

Perhaps the dreamiest combination of flavours to be put together ever, enjoy soft and citrusy orange slices dipped in dark chocolate, straight from our luxury chocolate boutique! To enhance the palate, even more, our chocolatiers sprinkle it with divine cocoa nibs and cardamom.
