Review: Camille Bloch Torino Mousse Chocolate

Fluffy vegan chocolate mousse in a thin crispy chocolate shell... sounds like heaven? Despite getting a severe bashing at the hands of the postal service, this could be one of the best things to have arrived through our door recently. The bar consists of 8 chocolate domes connected by a very thin and fragile chocolate base... ours arrived from Vx in pieces, but at least the domes were intact:

This is Swiss kosher chocolate... dark and dairy-free. The domes look like little marshmallow teacakes and the similarity doesn't end there, as the inside is a real marshmallowy chocolate mousse.

It's hard to catch on camera, but the mousse is really light and fluffy...and yet creamy and very rich. It's unlike anything we've had before, but the closest thing would be a chocolate truffle that had been aerated. The mousse is flavoured with hazelnut as well as chocolate and it's fantastic. The chocolate shell is really thin and gives a satisfying crinch-crunch as you bite it. The chocolate is dark, but is sweet rather than bitter. 

One of the highlights of this bar is the smell as you open the pack...vanilla-chocolate-hazelnut hits you in the face. The vanilla is vanillin on closer inspection, but we won't let that spoil the party.

We can't speak highly enough of this bar, and we can't encourage you enough to splash your cash at Vx and try some. If you're in London you can buy it at the Vx shop near Kings Cross, or you can mail order it from like we did. Don't worry if it arrives bashed... it'll still taste amazing.

Verdict: Pillows from Chocolate Heaven

  1. I bought this yesterday from Vx in Kings Cross and i have already eaten it all! It's delicious.

    1. Yeah...once you open's gone all too quickly!

  2. It's DANGEROUSLY good. Hard to walk past it in the store everyday without buying it. But I know tooo well: if I buy the three of them, intending to just have at most a row of each - i'll more then sure eat them ALL!
