When I first saw these little golden cubes, I thought that Madelaine's had decided to send me soup mix or something. An unlabeled golden cube, in particular a bag of them looks kind of strange. Since I received them by mail I also don't have the privilege of really knowing what I'm about to eat. Well maybe they sent some paper work describing it but I really don't pay attention to that stuff because I could either read paperwork or eat candy. The advantage in Madelaine's favour is they normally produce really nice high quality stuff so I was sure it wasn't soup. In fact, because of their reputation the fact that it was a mystery to me added to the fun.
When you unwrap the chocolate cube, you're pretty much presented with something that's only marginally less a mystery. It's a cube of chocolate, half dark brown and half light brown. I have to be honest and say the idea that it might be soup never left my mind. The thing that changed my mind was what happened after I took the first bite.
Basically. this little cube of chocolate goodness is just that, goodness. In fact, it's more than goodness, it's greatness. A nice smooth chocolate taste with a slight hint of hazelnut. Also, the texture was just perfect, my teeth sunk in just nicely and I got the perfect after chocolate feeling in my mouth. A fantastic treat by the folks at Madelaine Chocolate Company, and a perfect mysterious surprise if you don’t know what you’re getting.
