Our Chilli chocolate bar is a spiky addition to the Edinburgh Landmarks range, in much the same way that the Scott Monument is a highly recognisable spike on the Edinburgh skyline. Chilli may not be the most obvious ingredient in chocolate, but chocolate is used in Mexican cooking. The subtle blend of smooth dark chocolate and the warmth of real chilli flakes is a increasingly popular flavour combination and one that our team really enjoy.
The Scott Monument is of course a memorial to Sir Walter Scott, the famous Scots author who lived from 1771 until his death on 1832. A prodigious author, poet and writer, Scott's literary reputation towers across Scottish culture in much he same way that his Monument towers over Princes Street and the New Town, unmissable, unavoidable, and striking from every angle! Although poetry made his reputation, his novels cemented his celebrity in the early nineteenth century, with titles like 'Waverley' and 'Th Heart Of Midlothian' becoming classics of Scottish literature. In amongst all the writing, Scott rediscovered the Scottish Crown Jewels - The Honours - now on display at Edinburgh Castle.
The way we view Edinburgh and indeed Scotland today are in part a result of Scott's view of the Scots and the places he knew and loved. Not only in the Borders where he lived and died, but here in Edinburgh his legacy is still alive and well on the streets of the city. We recommend a wander through the vennels, closes and wynds of the Old Town where he was born, before crossing over to the New Town where he was celebrated and then immortalised in stone - and pack a bar of chilli chocolate to keep your fired up!
