The Chocolate Factory – Barcelona

As you know I was in Barcelona for a short vacation which was so much fun
anyways I came across this small business called the chocolate factory

They produced premium quality chocolate with creative design . As a chocolate
addicted i wanted to buy the whole store each product is unique but this specific
product got my attention “the chocolate jam” I have never seen chocolate jam
before, chocolate spread yes but chocolate and fruit preserve was something new
they have three flavors and I bought all three mint ,orange and pear

I have tried the orange and chocolate jam and it is well balanced, it has a good
portion of both oranges and chocolate I think it would be great as a cake filling will
try and let you know

                 Just make sure to pass by the chocolate factory when you visit Spain
